Solo John Lennon excelled at direct, often painfully confessional songs that confronted his childhood, his emotional highs and lows, political ideals and the course of his marriage to Yoko Ono. Often at his artistic best when his life was falling apart, Lennon recorded these songs in ten short years when he was fighting to stay in America, separating and reuniting with Yoko, and starting over as a husband and father. We collected some of the best for our John Lennon: MU Icon playlist, which features beloved songs such as “Imagine,” “Jealous Guy” and “(Just Like) Starting Over.”

Listen to the John Lennon: MU Icon playlist right here.

Need for Speed: Friday Night Gamers

It’s Friday Night Gamers time and this week it’s all about the fastest tracks to drive to whilst playing Need for Speed

Power Ballads

Let’s praise those grand rock ‘n’ roll gestures with some of the best, most over-the-top mid-tempo showstoppers around. Grab your loved one and get those lighters out (or a comparable app).

Classical New Releases, October, 2014

Major new releases from American composer Steve Reich, Scotland’s Nicola Benedetti and the South African born, London bred Daniel Hope join equally heralded works from Khatia Buniatishvili, Daniel Barenboim and Jenny Lin.

Remembering Paul Revere: Garage Rock Pioneer

Paul Revere’s driving organ sound, as well as his energized onstage persona, helped make The Raiders one of the true American triumphs during the British Invasion era. Their R&B-infused, tightly compacted early material embodied the raw sound of the Pacific Northwest while songs like “Kicks” and “Hungry” put them and their tri-cornered hats in front of millions.

Aphex Twin: MU Icon

Aphex Twin’s new album Syro melds melancholy melodies with a wide array of tumbling and hyper-kinetic beats. It’s a familiar sound echoing his ‘90s work but with more assured nature. Take a listen to some of the music that lead to this point, it’s the sound of a singular talent in the electronic world, one that makes him an ideal MU Icon.

New Releases, October 2014

We’re happy to announce the return of the John Lennon catalog this week. “Imagine” leads off a strong week of new material from the Sam Smith-meets-Elton John-esque sounds of Hozier as well as new tracks from Weezer, Flying Lotus, Childish Gambino. Be sure to check out Frazey Ford’s fine mix of folk and classic soul on “September Fields.”
