When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? by Billie Eilish

One of the positive things during our extended times at home is discovering new music. Billie Eilish's album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (2019) is truly one worth listening to. Each song is so very carefully crafted by Billie and her brother Finneas that it leaves you wanting to listen to each song on repeat over and over. My recommendation is putting on some sound-canceling headphones to really dig in and enjoy every layer that is put into each song and to enjoy Billie's beautiful soft voice in songs.

Notable songs are "Bad Guy," You Should See Me in a Crown." and "My Strange Addiction." When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? won the Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album, and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical at the 2020 Grammy Awards. Also, "Bad Guy" won the 2020 Grammy Award for Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Eilish's sweep is rare: she is the first woman and second person ever to win the four main Grammy categories—and is the youngest person to win Album of the YearGet all the details at Billboard.com.

What We Live For by American Authors (2016)

5a7092e49e8fe81c0acce9e4525147bd-600x600x1As a huge fan of the 2014 single “Best Day of My Life,” I was excited to discover American Authors’ sophomore effort. What We Live For is an upbeat, feel good alternative pop/rock album. Especially catchy are the songs “Go Big or Go Home” and “Nothing Better.” Give it a listen to lift your mood. For fans of OneRepublic and Fun.

Good news: listen instantly on Hoopla (or check out the CD).

Volume One by She & Him

Volume One by She & Him (2008)
The multidimensional Zooey Deschanel impresses once again at the “She” half of this duo (“Him” is M. Ward). Perhaps better known as an actress from films including (500) Days of Summer and Elf, Deschanel showcases her songwriting and singing abilities on Volume One. Likened to early 1960s pop, this indie rock album is a delight to listen to in the car or on a lazy afternoon. Check out “I was made for you,” “Black Hole,” “Sweet Darlin’,” and “Why do you let me stay here?” (see video below).

Check out the duo's website for news, music and more. Wait! There's more -- Volume Two was released earlier this year.
