• Mixtape Monday: This Week's Newest Tracks for Sharing

    We know that there were a handful of fun album releases this week (St. Vincent, Angel Olsen, etc.) but let’s try to focus on the new singles that graced our ears instead! We have some new tunes from Tycho, Architecture in Helsinki, Arthur Beatrice and many more on this week’s mixtape.
  • Throwback Thursday: Celebrate Kurt Cobain's 47th Birthday with 'MTV Unplugged In New York'

    Today (Feb. 20) marks what would have been Nirvana frontman/grunge leader Kurt Cobain's 47th birthday. Though, of course, this year marks 20 years since he took his own life, his groundbreaking music continues to live on. Even though Nirvana have released a slew of posthumous releases since 1994, for today's #ThrowbackThursday, we'll look at the very first one, and the album that somehow ended up feeling like a tribute to Cobain: Nirvana's acoustic record MTV Unplugged in New York.
  • Women We Love Wednesdays: DJ Elle Dee

    It's no secret that women can rock just as hard, if not harder, than men. But there seems to be a disparity when it comes to their representation in the music industry. They are topping the charts but barely getting any slots at big name festivals (this years Coachella lineup is 90 percent male). To do what we can to celebrate these women and give them the positive recognition they deserve, each week Music Times will introduce you to a female in the music industry whom we love. This week we'd like to show off: DJ Elle Dee
  • Mixtape Monday: This Week's Newest Tracks for Sharing

    Did Valentine's Day treat you poorly? Are you trying to get over heartache or heartbreak? Luckily for us, great artists released some impressive tunes last week that will help you get over your blues! Or maybe you just want to enjoy some cool new songs; either way we've got you covered. Let's listen to new tracks from The Wyches, Papercuts, The Coathangers and many more for this week's mixtape.
  • Throwback Thursday: 'In The Aeroplane Over The Sea' by Neutral Milk Hotel

    For this week's edition of #ThrowbackThursday, we'll celebrate 16 years regardless... of Neutral Milk Hotel's pinnacle album In The Aeroplane Over The Sea. Since being released on Feb. 10, 1998, this indie rock record has become the thing of legend, influencing countless acts from Arcade Fire to Brand New to Okkervil River. Neutral Milk Hotel have, of course, leaked to every level of musicianship, due to the fact that In The Aeroplane Over The Sea cuts can be heard at most local coffee shops on open mic nights.
  • Women We Love Wednesday: Courtney Barnett

    To do what we can to celebrate women in music and give them the positive recognition they deserve, each week Music Times will introduce you to a female in the music industry whom we love. Singer-songwriters, rappers, DJs, producers, filmmakers, and any woman who is part of the music industry is fair game for this segment. So read on, and get to know the women who continue to wow us. This week we'd like to show off Courtney Barnett
  • Mixtape Monday: This Week's Newest Tracks for Sharing

    Are you ready for an impressive mix of brand new tracks from rising and established musicians? Of course you are; it's Monday and that's what we do every week! This time around we have new songs from Eternal Summers, Angel Olsen, Hozier, Meg Myers and many more.
  • Freaky Friday: Florence and the Machine Covers The Beatles' 'Oh! Darling'

    At Music Times, we love a good cover song. There's something wonderful about repurposing music and essentially bringing life to another creation. Music is not a rigid and inflexible product but rather a malleable one that allows songs to take on a new life as others reimagine it. Nothing gets a crowd more excited than seeing one of their favorite bands cover one of their favorite songs. The cover song makes music accessible to new audiences, and spreading music is what we are all about. Welcome to Freak Friday. Each week we highlight a new cover song that we're crazy about. Have suggestions? Send them our way! This week, we give you...
  • Throwback Thursday: Rick Astley, 'Never Gonna Give You Up'

    Today, February 6, may be best known in the day in history when reggae legend Bob Marley was born, and that's totally fine and good. Perfectly valid, at that. Marley's impact on musical culture is undeniable and should be celebrated. However, he shares a birthday with one other popular musician... one who has also deeply affected culture, albeit in a different way. Yes, February 6 is also the birthday of Rick Astley. And for this week's #ThrowBackThursday, it's time to get Rick Rolled.

    Mixtape Monday: This Week's Newest Tracks for Sharing

    With most of the country focusing on the upcoming big football match last week (the Super Bowl, guys), you might've missed some great new songs that were released. This week debuted brand new tracks from Wye Oak, ABUELA, Mainland, and many more great artists. We have plenty of tracks to work with for our mixtape, so let's get started!
  • Throwback Thursday: 'Violet' by Hole

    The biggest day in the footballs is right around the corner... the Super Bowl. The 2014 edition of the American tradition will see the Denver Broncos take on the Seattle Seahawks. The music of Denver... not so well established. There's OneRepublic (kind of), India.Arie (ish... she was born there) and a few other acts, but the city has no distinct sound. Seattle, on the other hand, has been the birthplace of hard rock for over two decades, most notably grunge, which as we all know, rose in 1991 like a black hole sun all thanks to Nirvana. But, we know enough about Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. Instead, for this week's Throwback Thursday, let's look a little to the left of those guys at Hole.
  • Women We Love Wednesdays: Jenny Lewis

    It's no secret that women can rock just as hard, if not harder, than men. But there seems to be a disparity when it comes to their representation in the music industry. They are topping the charts but barely getting any slots at big name festivals (this years Coachella lineup is 90 percent male). To do what we can to celebrate these women and give them the positive recognition they deserve, each week Music Times will introduce you to a female in the music industry whom we love.
  • Tuesdays Under 21: Ebony 'WondaGurl' Oshunrinde

    It's easy to forget how young some of our favorite performers are when they enter the music world. From Michael Jackson's Jack 5 debut at the age of 11, to Lorde's chart-topping single "Royals" at the age of 16, it doesn't take much life experience to make a splash in the music industry. Tuesdays Under 21 is a Music Times feature dedicated to bringing attention to talented musicians and performers under the age of 21. Who knows? They just might be the next big thing. This week we introduce you to...
