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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Matt Corby – Resolution (Kygo Edit)

  Finals are upon us, failure is imminent.  What do we do? GIVE UP!!!! Let’s just pretend that school isn’t a thing for a bit, shall we? I mean, who needs responsibilities? Today’s post is about a song that reminds me of summer and friends in far away places simply because it is such a favorite […]

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 […]

Sanda Kolstad – “Run Away (Where Are We)” | Friday Happy Song

IT’S FRIDAY!!!!!! Celebrate your weekend and run away with me. Sound like too much to handle? That’s fine. Run away with Swedish pop-phenomenon Sandra Kolstad in her song “Run Away (Where Are We)” instead. Listen here: [soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/84225544″ width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /] And if you’re not a prude the music video is also pretty well […]

Painted Palms – “Spinning Signs” | New Release

Welcome to electronic psych-pop as brought to you in Painted Palms’ first single from their debut full-length album coming this January. Reminiscent of Of Montreal (remember Wraith Pinned to the Mist and Other Games?), the perma-fried melody of “Spinning Signs” makes it easy to think of something super trippy. Like this psychedelic pack of dinosaurs. […]

Tom Aspaul – “Indiana” | New Release

Yes, ladies and gents, it’s only Tuesday. Which is almost as distressing as this gif of Pikachu pushing over a kitten.   But alas, there is little one can do to get through the week other than to just grin and bear it. Like how the poor, abused kitten just gets up and keeps going. […]
