Staff Pick: What We're Listening To

The library has so much more than just books! We have an extensive music collection, with three different ways to get music: check out CDs from the branches, download up to ten free songs weekly from Freegal, or borrow songs from our digital library, OverDrive. If you haven’t taken advantage of our music collection before, here are some staff picks to get you inspired!

Jayme’s Pick: Barton Hollow by The Civil Wars. This male-female duo won two Grammys for their outstanding indie folk record, Barton Hollow. Standout tracks include the lovely slow songs “20 Years,” “Poison & Wine,” "My Father's Father," and the more up-tempo song “Barton Hollow.”

Kora’s Pick: New Life by Monica. R&B artist Monica returns to the music scene this year with a new studio album, New Life. On the album she collaborates with some of the leading names in the business, including Brandy and Missy Elliot.

 Angela’s Pick: Now That’s What I Call Classic Rock Hits. This blast from the past collection of hits includes some of the biggest classic rock songs of the 70s.

Brandon’s Pick: Making Mirrors by Gotye. Gotye is a Belgian-born Australian artist whose alt-rock album, Making Mirrors, is that rare release that is a breakout success as well as an album of beautiful, original music. Making Mirrors includes the international hit “Somebody That I Used To Know” featuring Kimbra.

 Sheryl’s Pick: Smash soundtrack by the Smash Cast. Guilty pleasure television show, Smash, has a catchy, sing-able soundtrack available to download on Freegal. Standout tracks include “Let Me Be Your Star” and “Let’s Be Bad.”
