• Throwback Thursday: "Pain in My Heart" by Otis Redding

    Our Throwback Thursday hasn't been all that throwback lately. This track stands out as the namesake of Otis Redding's debut album, Pain In My Heart, recorded from 1962 to 1963. Redding strikes an unparalleled balance of smooth rasp. The song showcases the effortless feel that his voice is dropped from heaven, as its dug deep straight from the soul.
  • Women We Love Wednesdays: Ellie Goulding

    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.
  • Tuesday's Under 21: Lucki Eck$

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.

  • Throwback Thursday: “Alphabet Town” by Elliott Smith

    Elliott Smith's saturated voice drips with longing, ringing out every last drop until you're left as dried up and empty as the characters in "Alphabet Town." It's a song set against a backdrop that takes on a haunting mood of its own. The harmonica is used delicately; when it fades out all that's left is the lingering echo of Smith and his acoustic.
  • Sharon Jones 'Give The People What They Want'

  • Throwback Thursday: “Spiderwebs” by No Doubt

    When No Doubt released "Spiderwebs," their second single off of 1995's Tragic Kingdom, one thing was clear: they weren't going to quietly retreat as a one-hit wonder after the first single, "Just a Girl." Following up with "Don't Speak" sealed the deal -- they had more staying power than a catchy ska punk song. This past spring Rolling Stone confirmed that Rock Mafia producers and Greg Kurstin were teaming up with the band to write new material for a 2014 album release.
