Required Listening: 2/3 - 2/7

February got off to a bright start with some hot music during this cold, cold week.

Required Listening: 2/3 - 2/7

One month of 2014 is in the books. Can you believe it? It's almost hard to believe that January is almost over and that we're already a quarter of the way through February as well. One theory I have is that all of the good music that's getting released is just greasing the wheels and making the days fly by. The first week of February was no slouch with a ton of great new releases.

In this edition of Required Listening, we have new jams by Yo Gotti (ft. J. Cole) and Iggy Azalea (ft. Charlie XCX). There are new songs from The Civil Wars and St. Vincent. New videos were put out by guys like Armon Jay and the Lonely Biscuits. Yellow Ostrich, Minor Alps and Hozier also put out new singles. There's a TON of good stuff out there.

But my favorite single of the week probably comes from a band that's been around for 25 years, or just about as long as I have been on the planet: Nickel Creek. It's only fitting that I learn about them as they hit this anniversary, but better late than never. The trio of Sara Watkins, Sean Watkins, and Chris Thile is putting out a new album to commemorate 25 years together, and the first single "Destination" is pure bliss. This is just beautiful Americana/bluegrass that I think should be agreeable with everybody. Based on the single (and the Spotify binge that I've been on over the past couple of days), I'm eagerly anticipating the new album.

Check out that single plus all the other songs and videos that are required listening this week!
