[Staff Picks of the Week] Fever Ray, Good Old War...and the McRib?

I've got love for the McRib

Even if you're not part of McRib Nation, you might find this interesting. There's a Madison connection to the new McDonalds commercial for the McRib! The song they use is "Love" by Matt White, a New Yorker  who graduated from UW-Madison in 2006. The song was included on an album called "Best Days" and actually came out a few years ago. It just makes me think happy thoughts! Enjoy the video - and sorry if it makes you hungry for a certain sandwich from a certain fast food restaurant.

I gotta fever, and the only prescription is....

Swedish music is amazing.  Awesome.  And Fever Ray is leading the charge with some of the most haunting and beautiful sounds of the past couple years.  And her videos are incredible.  Just watch this and you'll see what I'm talking about. The production values are incredible.  The vibrant colors and synthesized sound echo across the tundra of this deeply troubled music video.  It's exhilarating.  The song is "Stranger Than Kindness" and is a cover of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. Check it out:

I'm all about peace, but I love Good Old War

I am a sucker for a bunch of guys that know how to harmonize.  Indie rock trio Good Old War knows how to do it the right way.  They are just the type of music that I love.  Folksy, sometimes bluesy with some amazing guitar and meaningful lyrics. The song I've been listening to is That's Some Dream which is off their self titled sophomore album.  The thing I like the most about this song is its just what Good Old War does best.  They use simple elements but each element is intricate.  It has a bouncy foot tapping guitar part with a hint of melancholy in its optimism.  It's fun, it's catchy and it will be stuck in your head for days. Check out a very cool performance of the song below.

The problem with holiday sweaters--and it's not that they're ugly
Holiday sweaters--oh we love to mock them! Ugly holiday sweater parties have become so mainstream that I feel they are no longer ironic. But that's not what I'm going to gripe about. My problem is that ugly holiday sweaters are now becoming...

2014 had a ton of great new album releases, and I easily came up with more than 10 to reference. I would have loved to include The Fray, Angus & Julia Stone, Bleachers, Alt-J, and George Ezra… but they just didn't make it on my Top 10 list. Here...
