Favorite Music: 2014 Edition

Yooooooo Here it is. The definitive, obligatory, end-of-year “my favorites” list. If you forgot about last years’ favorites, check it out. Here are the top 5 songs that stuck with me this year, in no particular order. “Seasons (Waiting on You)” – Future Islands This one had a lot of personal significance for me this year. It’s […]

Tears for Fears – “Shout” (Avenue Remix)

Ahhh the 80’s. What a wonderful time for humanity. I mean, just look at this hair: Who can honestly say that the hair in that picture isn’t awesome? No one. Tears for Fears is probably one of the better remembered bands from the 80’s and early 90’s and they are not to be forgotten anytime soon. […]

Bleachers – “I Wanna Get Better (RAC Mix)”

WE’RE BACK After a rather long hiatus from blogging, I’m happy to say that I am back in the game for a rockin’ summer.  To kick it off: a sweet new track from RAC. You’d think that one of these days RAC would get really old, but somehow he keeps on producing tracks that just keep […]

Tom Misch & Carmody – “The Last Song”

Something beautiful to get you through to Friday. Described as the unholy freak child of UK garage and acoustic-folk, “The Last Song” is a surprisingly beautiful piece by Tom Misch and Carmody. I seriously recommend it – especially for this rainy February afternoon. Loves, Austen

My Top 10 Favorite Tracks of 2013

It’s time to usher in the new year, and no blog is complete without a “Top 10 of Such-and-Such” list to add to the festivities. Surely you’ve seen a plethora of such lists around the web, most of which I imagine you’ve found either really interesting or incredibly obnoxious. Regardless, I thought I’d throw my […]

My Jam | “Best Intentions” by Satchmode

  The good guys from Satchmode released a new track this weekend and so far they are living up to the standards they have set for themselves. The single is called Best Intentions and, like Old Fears, features more of the heavy synths and airy vocals typical (so far) of the group that can calm even the most […]

My Jam | Home (Yuksek Remix) – Dan Croll

So it’s Monday. And as (almost) always, this is the day that I post my favorite song for this week. I know. This week’s pick is Dan Croll’s Home, as remixed by French-producer Yuksek. I am absolutely in love with the happy, feel-good touch Yuksek has given an already great track. Listen to it here: [soundcloud […]

My Jam | “Come Down” by Crooked Colours

After a brief hiatus (midterms were EVIL last week), I have returned!!! I must say I am deeply sorry for getting so behind on posts last week. To make up for it I’ve got a really great song to share with you. Perth, Australia based band Crooked Colours have been on a roll lately with […]

My Jam | “The Sound of Silence” (The Golden Pony Remix) by Simon & Garfunkel

Mondays are a difficult thing. It’s truly a miracle when I wake up and actually get to work on time AND in real clothes.  On that rare occasion when both of those things do happen, I usually have the assistance of some sort of music. This week, that music is a remix of the classic “The Sound […]

My Jam | “Time Machine” by COIN

    It’s Monday, citizens, and you know what that means….. A new song I think will make your week so much better! My Jam for this week is brought to you by COIN, a Nashville, Tennessee based group with an indubitably infectious sound similar to Young the Giant & Walk the Moon. A prime […]
