“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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Flume & Chet Faker – “This Song Is Not About A Girl” | New Release

There is much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving – especially in terms of new music. I am so shallow. Hahaha Flume & Chet Faker are the new power couple hailing from Australia, and their new Lockjaw EP is going to be full of some great tracks.  Their latest release, This Song Is Not About a Girl, is […]
