New songs for February 11th, 2014

here they are:

"Blame It On Me" by George Ezra: George Ezra may be a newcomer onto the indie-folk scene, but he draws from influences both young and old. The Mumford-esque "Budapest" was a huge hit for George during the fall, and his followup single, "Blame It On Me" seems like it is poised to take on the charts for late winter/early spring of 2015! "Blame It On Me" has a bouncy rhythm that could be compared to some of Paul Simon's solo work. "What you waiting for, what you waiting for?" George sings during the chorus. George, we're waiting for this song to take over the world!! Or the radio, at least.

"I'll Make Time For You" by Kristin Diable: This song will probably be enjoyable to those who like female-fronted indie-pop songs, as this seems to be a cross between the snarky vocals of Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis and the old school soul of Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard. As both the verses and the chorus revolve around a basic, three chord structure, there isn't anything particularly exciting about this song, except when the psychedelically tinged guitar solo comes in the middle of it and diverts from the main chord sequence in the song. A good one nonetheless, though.
