Some cool music has been released lately, just in time for the hot weather to start rolling in. Funny how the two albums I’m talking about today both have “Paradise” in the title. Seriously, I didn’t plan it! Haha.
I’ve been anticipating La Roux’s album release of “Trouble in Paradise” on July 22, 2014, but for now, you can download some of her singles. I recommend “Let Me Down Gently”. For fans of La Roux, you’re used to the up-tempo “BulletProof” and “In for the Kill”, and upon first hearing “Let Me Down Gently” and was annoyed that it wasn’t more upbeat. But I kept listening to it, and you know what? It totally grew on me and I think La Roux does a great job mixing 80s synths and modern pop for a perfect blend of music.
Check out the music video here:
In the music video, it’s pretty toned down with La Roux singing to the camera and a gorgeous landscape later on in the music video. The song speak for itself.
Tiesto is has also released “A Town Called Paradise” which is available now on iTunes. It’s a great album, I’d give it 4 out of 5 stars for sure. Some awesome banging tracks on there. There really isn’t one song on the album that ISN’T catchy. But the thing is, I LOVE pop music, I love catchy stuff, but just because a song is catchy doesn’t mean I’ll automatically like it, songs like “Let’s Go” with Icona Pop… yeah, sure, it’s ok… but I’m kind of not so thrilled with it. I think the best banger out of the album is “Wasted” and after that “Light Years Away”.
Check out “Wasted” here:
I really don’t care for the music video at all. Seriously, *yawn* they should have just had people partying at a festival with cool lights or something. But listen to the song, it’s awesome.
What do you think of Tiesto’s new album? Excited for the new La Roux album?
