I think this is one TGIF Playlist, where I liked all the songs so much I didn’t know what order to put them in… If this is the only problem I ever have in my life, I’ll be golden. Hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy a song or two on this bad boy.
The singing in the intro alone gets me, then CATHEDRALS breaks into what reminds me of an electronic version of the intro to Where Is My Mind? by The Pixies
You know a song is good when we both post about it. LOWELL is banging out some hits, their other release Cloud 69 is also super catchy, great Toronto music.
Another Converse, three artists, one song collaboration. Wasn’t sure how this threesome would do, but they included a children’s choir… so you can’t lose.
If you haven’t checked out the Arcade Fire, Suburbs cover Mr. Little Jeans did, please do…
New Little Dragon *raises the roof*
This was on my February Soundcloud playlist, but that month went by so quick I didn’t post it, #noregrets though because here it is! Another remix where I think I like the remix more than the original.
2013 is just hours away and I’ve been trying to come up with a top album list for 2012* these past few days, but I gave up because I just haven’t given enough albums the time and devotion it takes to name them “best of” so INSTEAD, I went the song route, because that is a safer place for me. SO, to christen the end of the year I’ve decided to bundle 12 of my favourites song and basically make myself a personal 2012 soundtrack that I hope you can enjoy as much as I have. Hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year!
* If I were to give you three albums that I enjoy every second of whenever I put them on I would go with: 1-Channel Orange (worth the hype– times a bajillion) 2-Happy to You and 3-Coexist.
01 Reunion - The xx
02 Money Trees (feat. Jay Rock) - Kendrick Lamar
03 Velvet Elvis - Alex Winston
04 Rosie Oh - Animal Collective
05 Vase - Miike Snow
06 Radio - Lana Del Rey
07 Argonauts - Hospitality
08 Half Gate - Grizzly Bear
09 Disparate Youth - Santigold
10 Ugly Needs - Miniature Tigers
11 Undone - Luke Lalonde
12 Crack Rock - Frank Ocean
These two songs definitely do music sampling well and are both great tracks to add to your Saturday Night ” A dee dee da da da Playlists”.
Azealia Banks – Esta Noche
NSFW lyrics — but would you expect anything else from Azealia Banks? Sampling a hit from the 90s (or maybe borderline 2000s?) Montell Jordan’s Get it on Tonight. A song I used to play and sing inappropriately around the house as a tween because I didn’t understand what it was really about.
Frank Ocean –Super Rich Kids (feat. Earl Sweatshirt)
I feel like everyone needs to go purchase Channel Orange because it is just that good of an album, in every way and incredibly well written — I couldn’t say enough good things and I haven’t stopped listening to it since I got my hands on it. The intro to Super Rich Kids is a clear Benny and the Jets sample, but then Frank Ocean goes on to lyrically reference another hit by Mary J. Blige — not her Burger King commercial but the 90s hit, Real Love. Go get the album or stream it free here and hear what I’m talking aboutand enjoy!
