LISTEN: We love the new Carly Rae Jepsen — and so do you!

In case we haven’t made it clear with some of our previous stories, we adore Carly Rae Jepsen. Canada’s girl next door has managed to captivate us once again with her amazing new tune “Tonight I’m Getting Over You” that is meant for blasting at top volume on a beautiful spring day like this.

Give it a try and try and say that you aren’t downloading it to play on repeat right away.

Oh, and there’s a remix featuring Nicki Minaj on the way. Summer anthem? Here’s hoping.

Newly uncovered Evan Cassidy

American Tune

Evan Cassidy

Blix Street Records

Evan Cassidy, died far too soon at age 33, and American Tune may be the final testament to her remarkable voice. American Tune is comprised of  five tracks of newly uncovered rehearsal tapes, three live recordings, a demo and an early recording of that too-covered tune (but not here),  the Lennon-McCartney standard Yesterday.

 

In her usual eclectic fashion, Cassidy raids the vaults of rhythm & blues (Ray Charles’s Hallelujah I Love Him So), Philadelphia soul  (the Gamble-Huff Drowning in the Sea of Love), pop (Cyndi Lauper’s lovely True Colors), folk (an exquisite reading of the traditional The Water is Wide) and jazz (Duke Ellington’s It Don’t Mean a Thing if It Ain’t Got That Swing). One can only hope that there are still more Cassidyean treasures yet to be uncovered.
