Amy Macdonald's new album Life in Beautiful Light out now.
Unfortunately, there aren’t that many records stores left in NYC (esp. the ones that’d sell new releases). I may just have to go up to Montreal for its still thriving records stores to purchase the CD or record.
There’s nothing like quite buying an album/cd at a record store, when one sifts through the bin, have the feel of the physical media, and then admire the cover art and sleeves of the album after purchasing it at a nearby pub or coffee shop over a drink, being excited and giddy and looking forward to listen to the whole album afterwards. One can’t have that experience from an MP3 or purchasing it online. [I digress.]
As for Amy Macdonald:
Macdonald is the anti-diva. Polite, sensible, modest and still only 24, she defines herself in militantly ordinary terms.
She has the hits, the looks and the footballer fiance, but Amy Macdonald isn’t your typical pop star.
And as for her new album:
the opening track on her third album, ‘4th July’ finds her in energetic mode, no doubt rejuvenated and refreshed, if a little older and wiser. The positivity is reflected in the lyrics. “Nothing and nobody is ever going to bring me down,” she declares defiantly on the title-track…
Even Perez Hilton is turning straight for her and Slow It Down.
Amy MacDonald also did a fun cover of Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline, Bruce Springteen’s Born to Run and an angelic renditions of Dancing in the Dark and Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah.
She’s seeing life in a beautiful light.
