Guilty Pleasure of the Week: Solstice by Scala and Kolacny Brothers

For this week's Guilty Pleasure of the Week, I picked the new album by Scala and Kolacny Brothers titled Solstice. It recently came out this month. Scala and Kolacny Brothers consists of Scala, a girls choir and the Kolacny brothers Steven and Stijin. I have been a fan for a few years now. They take pop music and transform them into choral music. The results is interesting the very least on their new album. Unlike their previous album, there are a few bombs on this album. I really did not care for the group's version of "Fat Bottomed Girls" , "Dirty Diana", "Black Hole Sun", and "Barbie Girl". Those tracks just made me cringe. They were super cheesy but not in a good way either. That said their versions of "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)", "Strong Enough", "Wake Me Up When September Ends" and "The One I Love" makes up for those clunkers.

Album Of The Week: Ath.Lon by Marsheaux

Marsheaux is one of my favorite bands in the past few years. They really can't do no wrong in my eyes. Their brand of electropop is undeniably infectious. The duo recently released a new album this month called Ath.Lon. I was definitely not disappointed.

Weekly Playlist for 06.20.16 - 06.26.16

It has been a few years since I have listened to Tori Amos so last week before my four day weekend, I created a Tori Amos playlist. It consists of all my favorite Tori Amos songs from Little Earthquakes to The Beekeeper which is when I stopped listening to her music altogether. I stopped listening to her music a few years ago because my taste in music changed over the years. Still dig her earlier stuff.
