Here is what I’ll be listening to this long weekend, after I wake up at noon and shove my face with costco sized portions of mini-eggs. Hope everyone has a great weekend.
Miike Snow feat. Lykke Li – Black Tin Box
Miike Snow’s new album Happy to You, is a must purchase/listen for me. It like the perfect medley of music/songs for the summer– I haven’t been bored with it yet since I got it and if I were introducing someone to the album for the first time I’d probably get them to listen to: Vase, Paddling Out, and Archipelago next.
Sleigh Bells – You Lost Me
My favourite on this album is You Lost Me, but I wasn’t able to find a hostable version of it– you can download it from this link and take a listen, though. This album was a little less bad ass then Treats in my opinion, but still a really good follow-up to grab if you liked their first.
Hospitality – Betty Wang
I try to be an adult, and not giggle after reading the name of this song out loud, but I’ll forever be an adult-child and I’m okay with that. This is another newer album I’ve been listening to a lot and really like. Another favourite on the album (Katie played it on her show before) is Friends of Friends:
Hot Sugar – The Seagull
Warning: this is instrumental — but you can check out the entire album from the player– more music to add to my Summer Jam 2012 mix.
Wise Blood – to all the girls who have trusted me
One of the strangest videos, just saying.
I’ve also been listening to a lot of Black Keys and Arctic Monkeys since seeing them at the ACC — not usually my favourite concert venue– but we had GA tickets and had spots so close to the stage I could have backhandedly brushed Dan Auerbach’s beard if I wanted to. One of the best concerts I’ve been to in a while, so the afterglow hasn’t worn off and both bands have been in heavy rotation.
