The Shires - " Only Midnight "
fr " Brave " - Deluxe Album
Uhm , The Shires are the best thing from across the pond since..........( insert your favorite thing from the UK here ) . I came across The Shires when another artist I follow posted a pic after a writing session with them . Yes , that is one of the many ways folks hear about new music and artists . So , social media isn't completely useless . LOL !! I believe they are currently technically considered apart of the country music genre . However , I am unsure they fully belong there . I am not all about genre's . I feel that as most music progresses we are going to find it difficult to separate one genre from another . Anywho , this tune from the duo has been played about 50 times....so far....today.....in my house . I LOVE IT!!! I . LOVE . IT . LOVE IT !!! I'm not a " love song " person per say , but this one just has me . It has me so , that I downloaded the entire album . So far , so great !!! The Shires also do a cover on this record of " Islands in the Streams " (originally recorded by Kenny Rogers and Dolly ) that is well worth a download . It's remincent and new all at the same time . I want to start hearing this duo on my local radio so , it is on my to-do to call in and start making some requests .

Next on #NewMusicMonday is an artist called Elle King . I heard this track once by random in the car and immediately needed to YouTube it so I could hear it again.....and again and again . Girl friend has some sass and you know how I respect sass when used properly . This jam just has be dancing all over the place and singing into my hair brush . See also my " I'm not a love song " person statement from above , this song is the opposite of a love song . It's more of a " thanks . see ya later . on to the next . " kind of song.....and I kinda like that . I love the idea of it being the guy that can't seem to let go . Time they taste their own medicine kind of a vibe . Elle is so new to me that I barely could tell you anything beyond she is a platinum blond w some serious sass factor and is currently touring with Vance Joy . Someone else I need to share with you if you haven't already heard of him . I haven't heard any of her other tunes yet , but plan to do so . Anyway , give it a listen girls !! And maybe you fella's should hear it too . You know , as a warning . Some of us just aren't the attachment type . To read up on Elle for yourself click on this www.elleking.com .
Elle King - "Ex's & Oh's"
Selena Gomez - " Same ol' Love "
fr - " Revival "
Last this #NewMusicMonday is a grown up graduate from Mickey Mouse Club and former Belieber . O.K . So , we are all watching from the outside , but can I just say I am so happy for Ms . Gomez to be done with Beiber ??!!! I know , who even cares ??!!! Apparently , I do . Anyone see the clip of a backstage run in where Selena see's Justin , kisses him on the cheek and Taylor Swift , Gomez's bff keeps walking whilst rolling her eyes ??!! Well , I am Taylor Swift on this topic . If you haven't seen that clip you should YouTube it . It's basically the only mean face I've seen Swift ever make . Back to topic , Selena Gomez has released two tracks off her newest album , " Revival " . I have liked both of them , but for very different reasons . The tune I am sharing with you is called , " Same ol' Love " , and has a fun arrangement that makes all the " I'm over it " type lyrics less eye rolly . I feel like you might need to know me to fully understand that statement . Hopefully you don't and totally get what I'm trying to say . LOL !!!
All the tunes mentioned in this #NewMusicMonday post can be found on #iTunes . I am sure they can be found a few other places , but that was my downloading source .
