Roundin’ Up The Raves: The Struts, Miya Folick, Whitey Morgan & The 78’s, Empress Of

I don’t know what the weather’s like in your city, town, village, or hamlet, but we’ve had snow falling on our foliage this week and the foliage hasn’t even fallen from the trees yet. It’s not even Halloween! Therefore, I’ve spent the last few days layered in red plaid sweaters, keeping my ears warm with headphones and the latest hot buttered tunes.

Let’s round ’em up.

The Struts – Young & Dangerous

Despite the questionable cover art, The Struts walk it like they talk it, delivering a slick and catchy sophomore album full of non-stop pop-rock fun. Imagine The Darkness and Queen having a party in your speakers with a little Britpop and a lot of glam. But wait, you don’t have to imagine! Play The Struts.

Miya Folick – Premonitions

Candy-coated pop and heartfelt ballads with smart lyrics and stunning vocals. Catch a glimpse of the future.

Whitey Morgan and The 78’s – Hard Times And White Lines

Good old-fashioned outlaw country about whiskey, women, and whatnot. Get a taste of the past.

Empress Of – Us

R&B-inflected electro-pop from this Los Angeles chanteuse (with a stopover at the Berklee College of Music in Boston).
