Rita Houston http://kttz.org en The Lone Bellow: A Perfect Song For Singing Along http://kttz.org/post/lone-bellow-perfect-song-singing-along A lot is about to change for The Lone Bellow, a trio of Southerners who now call Brooklyn home: The band has yet to perform outside of New York, but its self-titled debut album is already charting on iTunes. Its members just quit their day jobs this month so they can go on tour.<p>You'll see in this performance why they're bound to connect with new fans on the road.

ChesnuTT mostly dropped out of the spotlight during the 10 years that passed following his 2002 debut, <em>The Headphone Masterpiece</em> — a stretch which clearly inspired his new album, <em>Landing on a Hundred</em>. He recorded most of the project in Memphis at Al Green's old studio, and the result sounds both timeless and contemporary.

Marcus Mumford, Country Winston Marshall, Ben Lovett and Ted Dwane spent the last three years traveling the world and playing to increasingly huge crowds as their popularity bloomed.<p>The group took its time and got it right on <em>Babel</em> (the guys pronounce it "BAY-bull"), fleshing out the lyrically rich, melodic tunes with lively arrangements.
