Daft Punk

This week’s Gabby’s Pick is  Daft Punk’s “ Get Lucky”. 

If you’re not familiar with them, Daft Punk is a French duo who made their initial impact in the late 90’s “ house movement” in France.

They toured throughout 2006 and 2007 and released the live album Alive 2007, which won a Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album. The duo composed the score of the film Tron: Legacy and in 2010 released the soundtrack album of the film. In January 2013, Daft Punk released their latest album Random Access Memories on 17 May 2013.

New song from John Mayer
If you believe the hashtag, #johnmayerisback!

His first tour since his vocal cord troubles cleared up kicks off on the 4th of July, and includes a stop at Milwaukee's Summerfest on July 6th.

In addition to preparing for a tour, he's been finishing up work on a new album called Paradise Valley, and just released the first single.

It's called Paper Doll, and the scuttlebutt is that it's about his old girlfriend Taylor Swift.

For some odd reason, Mayer decided to release the song with this disturbing Prancercise lady as the visual. Maybe you should try to listen to the song without watching. Just a suggestion.

It does have some nice guitar work and a melody that just floats along..but I would prefer him to be a little bit more feisty.

Jake Bugg

This week’s “Gabby’s Pick” is “Lightning Bolt” by Jake Bugg. Jake is all of 19 years old and has already been nominated for “British Breakthrough Act,” “Best New Artist” and “ Best Album”

He started playing the guitar at 12 years old, and says that his formative musical moment was hearing Don McLean’s "Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)" on an episode of The Simpsons.

What makes Jake’s music stand out is his fusing contemporary rock riffs with retro-folk, giving him a sound that’s uniquely his own. His self-titled debut album came out late last year and has already gone platinum in the UK.

Check out  the video for Lightning Bug"
