Wow! I, like most humans, are thoroughly smitten with Adele’s hit single “Rolling In The Deep” off her new album 21. Picture that song in your mind. Light acoustic guitar, awesome lyrics, and Adele’s skilled (understatement) vocals. Now, picture John Legend’s smooooth vocals over that. Ahhhh, feels good, right? Now, listen and enjoy this showcase of talent with John Legend’s “Rolling In The Deep” cover. It has a strong focus on vocals. Which it should.

Sicka Than Yo Average” (Right click + “Save link as” to DL)

Not that this is any sort of pun with any relation to the song title AT ALL, but this is definitely sicka than yo’ average. Upcoming rapper, Adair Lion, has an awesome name. He also released an awesome song with an overused Biggie sampling that doesn’t sound overused. Instead, he embraces it in the best way possible and makes an incredibly alternative song. So good. Open your ears to the newest cool rapper with the coolest name around!

Introducing: Ryan Shubert! If you’re looking for some collegey-Slightly-Stoopidish music with a twist of pop music, you’ve met your match. Ryan sent me his debut EP in one of the nicest email submissions I’ve received to date. He sounds like a genuinely nice, passionate guy. The kind of guy you want to take home to your mother.

Is anyone else preparing their summer playlists early? I am. Call it Spring Fever, call it being delusional, whatever – SUMMER’S COMING! Ryan Shubert’s beachy, light, smooth songs are a perfect addition to Summer ’11 playlists. Ryan is a fellow Temple University native with Michael Cameron. If you like Slightly Stoopid’s style (the music, not the weed), or John Mayer, you’ll love this guy. In his words, “The subject matter of my music is all true to my life experiences while living at college”. Check out Ryan’s Facebook page by clicking here. Make sure you pick up his 3-song EP, Halfway Past Tomorrow

Stream Halfway Past Tomorrow here.

Buy Halfway Past Tomorrow on iTunes HERE.

“As a daily reader and enthusiast of your blog, I would like to sincerely thank you for taking the time to consider featuring my music.” – Ryan Shubert.

Aw stawwwp Ryan…

P.S. Happy FRIDAY! Try not to dance around your room to Rebecca Black too much!
