Damon Albarn

In the manufactured battle in the 90’s between Blur and Oasis, I was a Blur man.

And I have always been a Damon Albarn fan, from Blur to Gorillaz to his opera Dr Dee.

His debut solo album, Everyday Robots, will come out at the end of this month.

Here is the title track/first single as well as the second single “Lonely Press Play”.

A daring title, but the first single “Seasons (Waiting on You)” is one of the best songs of this young 2014.

Future Islands

and the video of their live Letterman performance is amazing:

Suzanne Vega

For those of us who prefer a black wardrobe, this is our song.

“I Never Wear White” by the wonderful Suzanne Vega (from her recent record Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles).
