Music Monday: One Monday, Three Genres


Editor’s Note: Fritts is back! This week with four songs from three different genres. Mixing it up on Monday!

The Lone Bellow – “Green Eyes and a Heart of Gold”

Last week I started listening to this new band, The Lone Bellow, after I was invited to their upcoming concert here in Boston. What I discovered was a great alternative band with influences of folk, bluegrass, rock, and probably countless others. The Lone Bellow has an incredible story as well – the band’s main songwriter wrote most of her songs in the hospital after suffering a paralyzing car accident. “Green Eyes and a Heart of Gold” comes from their 2013 self-titled album. I’m excited not only for this concert but for the music that this band creates in the years to come.

Audio Push – “Theme Song (Feat. T.I.)” [Explicit]

California-based rap duo Audio Push gets together with legend and chart-topper T.I. for a big-booming anthem to add to your pre-game, running or lifting playlist. Not sure where this one came from or how the collaboration came to be, but T.I. doesn’t just throw songs away like some of the other popular rappers on today’s scene. Don’t overlook Pricetag or Oktane’s verses either as Audio Push continues to make it big.

Chronixx – “Smile Jamaica”

On Friday night, I had the pleasure of catching the 20 year old reggae sensation Chronixx in concert with a good friend of mine. Though I had not listened to him until last week, the concert was excellent and got me hooked on this new artist. I’ve always had a soft spot for reggae but often don’t catch much new material. Whether you’re a roots reggae fan or not, definitely give Chronixx a listen. He won’t disappoint.

Chronixx – “Odd Ras”
