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 […]

Bombay Bicycle Club – “Carry Me” | New Release

This blog post is a part of the “Oh Crap I Haven’t Posted in a While” series, the rest of which can be seen here.   Named after a chain of Indian restaurants, Bombay Bicycle Club has been a long-time favorite amongst me and my better friends. It’s been sad to not hear anything new from […]

The Lumineers – “Gale Song” | From the Motion Picture “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”

This blog post is a part of the “Oh Crap I Haven’t Posted in a While” series, the rest of which can be seen here.   The original “The Hunger Games” soundtrack was an achievement to say the least, and luckily as the franchise continues with this year’s “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” (which is INCREDIBLY […]

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. […]

The Ceremonies – “Land of Gathering” | New Video

Forget my post earlier this week: I totally have a new favorite song. Remember the commercial for the e-commerce site Fab.com that came out earlier this year? I don’t (you can watch it here), but I definitely wish I had seen it when it was released! Not only is the ad adorable and the site […]

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. […]

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 […]

Chromeo – “Sexy Socialite” | Funky Friday Happy Song

It’s Friday, and it’s time to get funky. To commemorate this weekly day of joy, we’ve got some new music for our listening delight. Montreal based electro-funk-pop duo Chromeo released their new single “Sexy Socialite” about ten days ago, and it’s the grooviest jam I’ve heard in a long while.  Self-described as “the only successful Arab/Jewish partnership […]
