New Music - Parov Stelar, Soko, Meghan Tonjes

Here are a few new songs I recommend:
Parov Stelar - Booty Swing

If you have seen that commercial for the Cosmopolitan hotel in Las Vegas, you will probably recognize this song.  It has a classic swing sound with the vocals mixed with a modern beat.  I had never heard of Parov Stelar prior to this song.  He is a producer and dj from Austria and he has been making songs for a little over 10 years.  He has other songs similar to this, but Booty Swing is my favorite.

Soko - First Love Never Die

I first heard of Soko a few years back from her song I'll Kill Her.  She has been away from the music scene for a while, but she is finally back and is about to release her first full length album.  This song First Love Never Die is the first single off the album.  It is very nice and emotional.  Her distinctive vocal style is still their.  I like the tempo changes of the song which keep you on your toes.  Glad to see her back making music.

Meghan Tonjes - Caitlin Take Your Shirt Off

Meghan Tonjes just uploaded this video of her where she makes this improv song trying to convince her friend Caitlin to take off her shirt.  It turned out amazing and funny.  The melodies are great.  I really hope she records a studio version with some revised lyrics and structure.  It would be a hit for sure. 

If you like any of these songs, leave a comment below!
