Here’s a bit of what I’ve been listening to this month so far:
I’m really digging SALES, their music sounds effortless and fun to me. This is their newest release, Vow. If you like it, I strongly suggest listening to the rest of their Soundcloud feed. Another band I’m waiting to play Toronto.
I love nothing more than when I read through our e-mails (doesn’t happen very often, Katie is our e-mail master) and see good music. Wet Leather just e-mailed us (thaaaanks guys) and I love this song, kind of has a Phoenix-vibe.
I’ve posted FYFE music before, it’s a little less upbeat then the rest of the tracks on this list, but I like his stuff.
Do you ever play a song for someone and they have no idea what the singer is saying… If that hasn’t happened to you yet, play this Mexican Summersong. My sister gives me a hard time about it, but I seem to have a thing for muffled/distorted vocals, this song is no exception.
That’s all I got! Enjoy and have a great May 2-4 weekend:)
Katie and I were trying to think of cool things to do with the blog this year, so YouTube videos? Sure, why not?
So, here we are each talking about the handful of songs we think/hope will satisfy whatever mood you are in this Valentine’s Day:
Metronomy – The Look The Flamingos – I Only Have Eyes For You Miniature Tigers – Ugly Needs Solange – Losing You Gorillaz(feat. Little Dragon) – To Binge LukeLalonde – Undone BornRuffians – Red Elephant Morrissey – I Don’t Mind if You Forget Me
Tv Girl – If You Want It Broncho – Can’t Get past the lips Jens Lekman – Your Arms Around Me Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros – Home Angel Olsen – creator, destroyer Hall & Oates – She’s Gone

Feel free to subscribe to the channel if you want to see more, or leave a comment of what you’d want us to talk about next. If we get a warm enough response I think we’ll try another… maybe with a fancier set-up (we used my MacBook for this one) but it was a fun experiment, hopefully you like the music and thanks for taking the time to visit our blog :)
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.
