Moon's Song of the Week: Tears To Cry by The Paul Hegley Band

Since starting Song of the Week I’ve been getting regular emails from people wondering if we can feature their band on our site. These emails are more often than not the kind of copy/paste “unique opportunity for your readers” rubbish that signals the fact that we’ve been added to yet another PR company’s mailing list. Every so often however, such as in the case of the guys from The Paul Hegley Band, the email is from genuine artists who are just trying to get their work out there.

That’s not to say that we feature every person we get a nice email from, but as it turns out I’m a sucker for the kind of moody, Dire Straits-esque guitar playing that Paul has going on in the opening of this track and I reckon it’s well worth a listen.

Tears to Cry comes out July 11th.

Moon’s Song of the Week: Kinda Outta Luck by Lana Del Rey

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DtZNmkJYks&w=853&h=480]

Moon is an astral body of many hobbies but one of his greatest loves (right behind a quality coke float) is that of music. Many scientists believe that the happiest day of Moon’s life was the one in which he discovered a pair of headphones big enough to fit over his massive head and, with that in mind, the great globe headed one has now elected to share some of his musical tastes with the general public.

Moon’s inaugural pick comes from rapidly ascending mega star, Lana Del Rey. Lana’s first album “Born to Die” came out this week and, as is the way with such things, critics are already queuing up to try and take shots at the new kid. Moon has never been one for such mudslinging (largely because he has no mud) but he does have one gripe with “Born to Die” and that is the sad omission of this little gem.

Released via youtube back in May last year, Kinda Outta Luck is a beautifully simple tribute to femme fatales anywhere. Moon recommends enjoying it with a glass of whiskey and your favourite Ed Brubaker comic.

Check back next week for another Moon Song of the Week!
