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

Lana Del Rey – “Once Upon a Dream”

You literally cannot miss this one – Lana Del Rey has covered the 1959 Disney classic “Once Upon a Dream” and she has made it certifiably terrifying.  The single was made specifically for “Dream”, the new trailer for Disney’s upcoming film “Maleficent”. The trailer is haunting, and Del Rey’s performance in combination with Angelina Jolie […]

Matt Corby – What The Devil Has Made

If you haven’t heard any of Matt Korby’s work, your life really must suck. Jussayin’. But hopefully you have heard his music! If you are in fact one of the unlucky ones, please check out this earlier post. OK, now continue reading. Today good ol’ Matt released the audio for his piece “What The Devil […]

Daniela Andrade – “Crazy” (Gnarls Barkley)

It’s been an insanely busy beginning for 2014, and I must say I’m rather disappointed with myself for not having written anything since 2013. So much for those New Years Resolutions, eh? January is an exceptionally dreary month, and as such a lot of the people I know are kind of tuckered out and just […]

Pále – “Let Them Talk” (feat. Joshua Idehen) | New Release

As 2013 comes to a close, music makers don’t seem to be slowing down much. For those who are fans of music with ambient vibes with a chill beat (like Clair De Lune by Flight Facilities), Brighton-based producer Pále recently released “Let Them Talk.” Featuring Joshua Idehen, poet and member of Benin City, Pále’s “Let Them Talk” delivers […]

Rihanna – “Stay” (20Syl You Can’t Be Serious Remix) | Friday Happy Song

It’s been a week full of all-nighters, panic attacks, emotional breakdowns, and ultimately the development of plans to drop out of school and life and basically everything. But alas!! The end is near!! IT’S FRIDAY.   To remix a song that has basically become the definition of over played and still make it noteworthy is quite a feat.  Perhaps […]

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 […]

José González & St. Vincent – “Step Out”

Seen the trailer for that new Ben Stiller movie yet? The Secret Life of Walter Mitty looks like a great, heartwarming classic in the making, and that makes it a perfect fit for José Gonzalez’ music. Dramatic and rousing, this track marks another piece of solo work from Gonzalez, who is also the lead of Swedish-folk […]

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 […]

Elderbrook | Upcoming Artist

With a name that sounds like it came straight out of The Hobbit or some other exceptionally nerdy-fandom (don’t worry!! I partake in my fair share of geekiness!!), Elderbrook is a musician that is certainly worth keeping an eye-on. The UK-based singer-songwriter/producer sounds very much like ∆ (Alt-J) and James Blake, and if you are a […]
