Tune Tuesday - Aishling's Picks

If you've read my last Tune Tuesday post you will know that I've moved Music Monday to Tune Tuesday for the moment until the Let's Talk Blog Challenge we're doing is over! Which will be sad because we've been having lots of fun doing the challenges! 

I'm going to start with Clutch. Clutch are an amazing rock, blues, southern rock band from America and if you haven't heard them, you need to now. We were lucky enough to see them live on the 9th of May in Dublin at The Academy. It was amazing! Definitely one of the best gigs I've been too. My boyfriend Steve does a brilliant review of the gig here "Get Your Ass In Gear - Clutch @ The Academy, Dublin" (not for the faint hearted or easily offended I have to add :P) but you must read it for the awesomeness.

I'll start with Cypress Grove. This is my all time favourite song by them. I just looooove it.

Clutch - Cypress Grove

Clutch - Crucial Velocity

This song is one of the many amazing songs off their new album "Earth Rocker".

Clutch - Burning Beard

And lastly Burning Beard which was the first Clutch song I heard. Just awesome.

Neutral Milk Hotel - She Did A Lot Of Acid/Beautiful Baby

I am sure I've heard this song before sometime so I guess I could say I've rediscovered it. I've never listened to Neutral Milk Hotel and didn't even know what kind of music they made but I have to say I really like the sounds of this. I will definitely be checking out more of their stuff. This is an acoustic version of this song as far as I can tell, I think the original is a lot faster.

Mecca Normal - Ribbon

I have no idea who Mecca Normal are. I found this song when I went onto a page of someone on tumblr and they had one of those automatic music players (which I usually hate) and I really liked the sound of this song. It sounds just like Patti Smith! I was sure it was her but nope. The singers name is Jean Smith! So I was close haha! This video seems to be uploaded to her own account that she runs herself. I will definitely be listening to more of her stuff.

The Knife - Marble House

I just love The Knife and I love anything Karin Dreijer Andersson is involved with. Her voice and sound is just fantastic! I have no idea what kind of music you would call The Knife. Electronic I guess buts its a bit more alternative. This song is sooooo good.

Tori Amos - Crucify

I have nothing really to add here only I just really like this song.

Aaliyah - One In A Million (Urban Noize Remix)

This is someones remix of this song on YouTube. Don't worry their isn't much difference to the original song but enough to make me love this more. I just really like this song. It's nice and relaxing, especially in the nice weather.

Down - Conjure

Steve got some new musics from Down which I've been enjoying. If you haven't heard Down before, I highly recommend them especially if you like your metal or heavy musics. Down's lead singer is the amazing Phil Anselmo from Pantera and the rest of the band is made up of musicians from other bands. This song off their second EP I'm really liking. It sounds very like Black Sabbath and is just soooo awesome!

That's all for this week!
I hope you enjoy and let me know what you've been listening to recently :)

Thanks for reading (and listening)!
