WMNF has a box full of new music & MP3 downloads that the music department wants to feature. It is a wonderful thing, the tasty Hot Box. Very similar to a wonderful box of chocolates, but without any of the scary ones with unidentifiable gross cream inside.
Arcade Fire – Everything Now
Boy, they are a band that people love or hate. I’m on love side. Especially driving at night to this song:
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart – When I Dance with You (in advance of 9/1 release)
Why is this song coming out at the end of the summer? Luckily it is always summer in Florida, because I want to drive around singing it too!
Lila Downs – Salon, Lagrimas y Deseo (Lounge(?), Tears & Desire)
Lila Downs has been up on our New Sounds HD2 channel, and it has been really great discovering her music. She melds traditional Mexican music with super aware lyrics. Here is the whole NPR Tiny Desk concert, so you can find out a little more of who she is, unless you already know!
Kacy & Clayton – The Siren’s Song
Dang, her voice is great, but the videos are… um…
Randy Newman – Dark Matter
We will always give you some Randy Newman. This is just a simple pretty song for you to listen to.
