manicanparty – “Warpaint”

  The first manicanparty single that I heard was a cover of Miike Snow’s “Animal”. The rawness of the cover immediately captured me, and I’ve been a fan ever since. With a sound as triumphant as manicanparty’s it’s hard not to love their other music as well. Most recently released is “Warpaint”, a song that […]

“1965” – Zella Day

Happy Tuesday ladies and gents! Here is a great song by Zella Day to brighten your morning just a bit. Warm and classic sounding, “1965” reminiscences about love once great but now lost. More emotional and powerful than her single “Sweet Ophelia”, “1965” showcases Zella’s incredible vocal talent in a stunning way. Take a listen: […]

Tycho – “L”

Originally the musical alias for Scott Hansen (he has a great design blog – check it out), Tycho has since evolved into a three-piece band. While Hansen’s solo work was genius, it really pales in comparison to the work released by the newly formed group. While not the most promoted track from the new album […]

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

Broods – “Bridges”

People of the internet, HERROW. I am not Austen. What? Yeh. I am Christian, a friend of Austen, and a collab has just been birthed. As my debut post, I would like to introduce to you guys some kickin’ Kiwis that once again prove that New Zealand is home to some of the most incredible […]

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 […]

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 […]
