Week that Was (2-7-13 to 2-13-13)

Hope everyone had a great week, we’ve really been doing our best trying to keep everyone updated on the important music news over the week. For this week’s “Week that Was” we lead off with Lorde, who in her Facebook About Me describes herself as our “favorite little head game.” Perfect. Her music draws you in and keeps you smiling and bobbing your head until the end.

Keep sending music to acityinthemidwest@gmail.com.
