TGIF Mini-Weekend Playlist

So I haven’t had a bunch of time to post daily but I figured I would make a weekend playlist made up of all the music I’ve listened to this week. So TGIF everyone!

It’s Real – Real Estate

Cute lo-fi that’s filled with ooh’s and aah’s, what more could I want?

Put Me in a Movie – Lana Del Rey

Say what you will about Lana Del Rey, I still like the music she makes.

You Know What I Mean – Cults

This is a great album, I listen to it on the regular at work and dance, snap and look like a weirdo moving around in silence in my office as if people can’t see me, when really they can.  I’m preeetty popular.

DoYaThang – Gorillaz feat James Murphy, and Andre 3000 (Converse Compilation)

This song is better uninterrupted (and I’m not crazy about the video), I couldn’t find a good link sorry – but you can download it for free by clicking above if you want.

Get Stroked- Stereogum Pays Tribute to This is It with a Collection of Covers

Stereogum has released an album of covers to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Is This It.  You can download the compilation here with covers from bands like Peter, Bjorn & John, Wise Blood, and The Morning Benders.  Is This It is an album that holds a lot of nostalgia for me.  I remember the first time I heard Hard to Explain and pressing record after the intro, not even caring that I was cutting into the mixed tape already in the boombox. Even though the covers don’t compare to my sentiment with the originals, this is still a fun listen for me.

Track Listing

01 Peter Bjorn And John – “Is This It”
02 Chelsea Wolfe – “The Modern Age”
03 Frankie Rose – “Soma”
04 Real Estate – “Barely Legal”
05 Wise Blood – “Someday”
06 Austra – “Alone, Together”
07 the morning benders – “Last Night”
08 Owen Pallett – “Hard To Explain”
09 Heems – “New York City Cops”
10 Deradoorian – “Trying Your Luck”
11 Computer Magic – “Take It Or Leave It”
