New Sounds (3/5): Mary Lambert

I ran into Mary Lambert after looking up more #AmexAIR performances and it was love at first sight.

It’s not completely crazy that her song “Secrets” reminds me a lot of Meghan Trainor‘s “All About That Bass,” WHICH (just so you know) I only heard for the first time at the end of December when I was bored and did one of those internet quizzes that promised to tell me what my theme song for 2014 was. My 2014 theme turned out to be Trainor’s hit that I had never listened to. Yep, that’s right, I don’t listen to radio and completely ignore Spotify most popular playlists and that’s how I’ve gotten here without listening most of the hits until they’re one the way out or out completely. What the opposite of being a hipster? When you like things after everyone does? Well, I can only blame El Salvador for that. Bands only go play concerts there when they get old. I think Pearl Jam only made it to Central America in 2011. And so did Aerosmith, when they had a concert in El Salvador in 2013 (LOL!) I can’t say I blame these bands, really. But it’s all such a joke.

Well, let me get back on track here. I was talking about Mary Lambert. I don’t know much about her apart from the fact that she looks like a complete bad ass and has an amazing voice. Let’s explore some tracks together, shall we?

The video to the song is awesome, but this take is really impressive, so this is the one you get from me.

“When You Sleep”

“So Far Away” (audio)
