Lots of songs never make it to the radio that are getting lots of attention online. Live tracks, sanctioned and unsanctioned remixes, mash-ups, overlooked gems by unsigned artists. Every week on “Are You Feeling This,” we invite you to hear what the buzz is all about. You tell us what you think. Vote in the 'Are You Feeling This' poll, and leave a comment.
We kicked off Are You Feeling This with music from the highly anticipated debut album, Body Music, from UK's AlunaGeorge. AlunaGeorge unique take on R&B has garnered high-praised from NPR to Pitchfork. We featured the song "Bad Idea"
Next is music from Foxygen's Jonathan Rado's solo project called Law and Order, which is due out later this summer. Check out his song "Hand in Mine."
Out of Portland, we had music from the 11-piece band Typhoon. We played their gorgeous tune called "Young Fathers," which you can find on their forthcoming album White Lighter due out August 20. If you willing to make the trip to Chicago, you can catch Typhoon perform at Schubas on September 20.
Finally, the next tune is going to be huge, and it comes from newcomer John Newman. His tune "Love Me Again" is already big on the charts in his home country of England. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
