Took Sprout to Lawrence, KS to see Lindsey Stirling at the Granada. The show was amazing. Here she is doing a Michael Jackson medley of Beat It, Billie Jean, and Smooth Criminal. Good stuff!
She also did a cover of Journey’s Separate Ways and a medley of Legend of Zelda tracks.
Her opener was The Vibrant Sound. They were pretty spectacular also. Here they are doing a Marvin Gaye cover/sample.
I’m pretty obsessed with the current Harlem Shake meme. My favorite has to be this one out of Portland.
An oldie but a goodie, and one of the best to come out of SoundCloud in a while. Nicki Minaj slowed down sounds like a super effeminate Jay-Z. I listen to this more often than I should.
Slowment 4 Life is pretty stellar, too.
Irish folky goodness of
The Chieftans with names like Lisa Hannigan, Secret Sisters, Bon Iver, Civil Wars, Punch Brothers, and Pistol Annies.
Have been hearing this pop up on Spotify. The album version (Hunger Games Soundtrack) has a different feel. Love both of them.
The entire Hunger Games album is a current obsession of mine. Listen to it on Spotify.
Found this Life Pro Tip
on Reddit. Also, use Paper CD Case to add track lists, images, contact info, etc to the paper sleeve. Pretty slick.
Usher original, might like this one more. Acoustic goodness. VIDEO
A remix of Mr. Rogers by

State, State, State, State of the Art.
Listened to this album. Good stuff. Single is on the radio now. Sad face.
“I guess that I don’t need that though…
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know”
Whitney Houston’s funeral was today and I watched Stevie Wonder’s performance of a modified “Ribbon in the Sky.” It reminds me of him giving an amazing
performance at Michael Jackson’s funeral.
At which funeral will he sing next? More importantly, who will sing at his funeral? Who is going to give the “Stevie Wonder performance” at Stevie Wonder’s funeral?
Robyn was on SNL over the weekend and performed
Call Your Girlfriend and Dancin on My Own from her 2010 Body Talk album. She killed it! VIDEO
After checking that out see her do a cover of Alicia Keys’s (s’? ‘s? s’s?)
Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart for an iheartradio performance. VIDEO
And if that’s not enough, watch
Who’s That Girl? over on YouTube. The feeling I get when I see the face she makes at :16-:17 confirms I have a crush on this girl. Swoon!
