This week, GeekGirl Lacey listens to PJ Harvey’s new album The Hope Six Demolition Project.
This England born singer song writer started her career in 1988, when she joined Automatic Dlamini as a vocalist, guitarist, and saxophone player. Harvey later went on as a solo artist, and since 1995, she has released six studio albums with collaborations from various musicians.
Rolling Stone awarded her 1992’s “Best New Artist” and “Best Singer Songwriter”, and on their 1995 list she was named “Artist of the Year”. In June 2013, she was awarded an MBE by the Queen Elizabeth II for her services to music.
Weezer released their latest (and 10th!) album, The White Album, on April 1.

This week GeekGirl World’s very own Music Monday Lacey, reviews a multi artist album inspired by Star Wars.
With songs like C3Po’s Plight what Star Wars fan wouldn’t have fun dancing along to the beats. Don’t take our word for it though, go listen to the tracks available in iTunes and let us here at GeekGirl World know what you thought.
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and what better way to celebrate the season of all things love than with music! After all, people have been using music to express their deep feelings of love since, well, forever.
So with V-Day fresh in mind, Lacey (GeekGirl World’s official music guru) decided to pick five songs that remind her of her Valentine for this week’s edition of Music Monday.
Everybody interprets music differently, so it’s important to note that what qualifies as a love song is different for each person. A song don’t necessarily have to be soft and romantic so long as it lets your special someone know how you feel about them.
