Kimbra - Stream the new album now

Photo Credit: Thom Kerr

Maybe you recognize Kimbra from the Gotye video "Somebody I Used to Know" or maybe you know her for her solo career. In any case its time you all know her. My first experience was watching Kimbra's video of her Nina Simone cover "Plain Gold Ring" which I then proceeded to blog about here then watch daily for at least 2 weeks. At only 22 this New Zealander is incredibly talented and has made a huge name for herself in Australia and New Zealand. She is in the process of taking the U.S. by storm. I tried to buy tickets to her first Los Angeles show but it sold out within five minutes!! Tuesday she is releasing her album Vows in the U.S. with nearly half of it being new songs not on the Australian edition. You can now stream it on NPR.  For more Kimbra music videos click here.

Stream John Mayer's new album

 Posting an old picture because let's be honest John, the new look is not doing it for me...

If you are a John Mayer fan and haven't streamed the new album on iTunes now is your chance before it goes away. There is no set expiration date so it could disappear at any moment... just like John's touring career. I'm still mourning the fact that I will not get to experience hearing him at the Hollywood Bowl this summer and will hold on to the memory of his last concert there. The Born & Raised album comes out May 22nd.
