New music: just the good stuff

2012 has been a good year for music so far. Here's a look at some of my favorites from the past few weeks.

Regina Spektor 'What We Saw From the Cheap Seats' Sire Records

Born in Russia and raised on classic 60s and 70s rock, Spektor moved to New York with her family at age 9 and soon began making up songs about her life and the world around her - a trait that the classically trained pianist has perfected over six albums.

Her best work to date, 'What We Saw From The Cheap Seats' offers instantly accessible, endlessly melodic songs that unfold with a mosaic of unique sounds. From the island-infused 'Don't Leave Me' to 'Oh Marcello,' which quotes The Animals' 'Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood,' 'Cheap Seats' is the sound of an artist at the top of her game.

BANGOR - Live music will fill the air in and around the Bangor Waterfront on Wednesday, July 4 during Chords For Cure VIII a benefit concert that guarantees attendees the best seat in town for the largest fireworks display in Maine.

Scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. at Waterfront Concerts Pavilion and continue up to the fireworks at 9:30 p.m., Chords For Cure will be headlined by The Stone Doctors, a group of medical professionals who perform note-perfect versions of classic material by The Rolling Stones. The band only performs for charity.

Orthopedic surgeon Ian Dickey of Bangor handles lead guitar and backing vocals for The Stone Doctors and says the rest of the band will arrive from Montreal a couple of days before the show. 'This will be our eighth Chords For Cure event and we're looking forward to a truly rocking and explosive event,' Dickey said during a recent appearance on The Mike and Mike Show.
