This week we have a couple of lovely ladies on 2 For Tuesday. First up is Sophia by Laura Marling.
Rolling Stone magazine has been raving about Laura for a few months now, so I decided to give her new album a try. I’ve been listening to it nonstop since I downloaded it last week. It’s way better than anything labeled “British Folk Music” has any right to be called. This is the first single from the album, but several songs could easily make it onto Modern Rock 2011. With only a few weeks left to finalize the track listing, she’ll be in heavy rotation until I make a decision.
Next up is Video Games by Lana Del Ray.
This track was also a recommendation from my newest reliable source for good music – @SpeedyMick
I know absolutely nothing about the artist other than she is an attractive lady with a gorgeous old time sound.
Something about her throwback sound and lyrics about a boyfriend ignoring her for video games makes this song instantly memorable. Thanks for the great recommendations!
