LISTEN: Jessica Lea Mayfield – “Our Hearts Are Wrong”

Although this singer has had 2 previous albums, I just now ran across Jessica Lea Mayfield. Like many comments on YouTube, you just can’t put a finger on what it is with this chick that makes her so appealing. Whatever it is it works. She has a hauntingly beautiful voice, somewhat reminding me of 90’s rock, but also sounding a little country at times. Hopefully that doesn’t scare anyone off. The first single “Our Hearts Are Wrong” off her newly released album Tell Me reminds me of something on my bathtime playlist…you know when you take a bath and light a bunch of candles and just relax. You can download this song for free at Jessica’s website and if you like it, the album is also available for purchase on iTunes.

LISTEN: Lady Gaga – “Born This Way”

 

Lady Gaga is channeling her inner Madonna in her first single “Born This Way” off her upcoming album with the same name due out in May. I do not want to make any preemptive  judgements but so far I am just meh about this. The song sounds very “been there done that” to me but we will just have to wait and see what the rest of the album holds! Listen below and let us know what you think of the track.

Cover of the Day: Adele – “Lovesong” (The Cure)

Basically anything with “Adele” in the title is going to be good. The cover of The Cure’s “Lovesong” will be on her upcoming album 21 which everyone is excited about, including my Dad oddly enough. I love when parents call you and say “Hey…have you heard of this Adele? Just caught her song Rolling in the Deep on the radio….good stuff”. Exact quote from my father. Anyway, listen to the cover below!
