Remember when we used to publish on the regular? Those were fun days. But this song by HAERTS (such an annoying name to say, type) is pretty great. It’s all loopy and groovy in the right places. Big meaningful drums and sex undertone vocals. Wait till the end where snapping fingers and overlapped vocals take over your life.

Hello Bon Iver? Is that you?
No. Just someone that has the same viciously dark, mysterious vocal tones and lyrics. Well count me in. It might not have been recorded in a lonely cold cabin, but it’s still as pleasant on the ears as you can get. Just try and imagine it’s the dead of winter and the middle of summer.

London Grammar transforms Kavinsky’s “Nightcall” into a beautiful sweeping ballad. TGIT.
Check out the original after the jump!
Tuesday July 8th, 2014 12:01 Wunder Wunder: Coastline
I have yet to see the ocean this summer, which is a travesty by definition. Luckily for me, Wunder Wunder’s upbeat “Coastline” is a close second to the real deal. I can almost feel the warm sand beneath my feet… but alas it’s just the road salt embedded in my rug after such a brutal winter. Where’s that vacuum at…
Monday July 7th, 2014 16:16 Bon Iver: Heavenly Father
Zach Braff’s first directorial effort Garden State blew my mind as a high school junior back in 2004. Everything from the overwhelming melancholic feel of the film to Natalie Portman’s amazing performance that left me lusting after a pathological lying epileptic struck a chord with little 17 year old me. But my favorite aspect of the movie wasn’t any one performance or scene, it was the soundtrack. In addition to perfectly complimenting the story and feel of the movie, it introduced me to a world of music I never knew existed outside of the radio. I’ll never forget desperately waiting for the credits to close so I could find out who sang the final song that played as Braff and Portman reunited in the airport for a kiss (the song was “Let Go” by Frou Frou, and I still love it to this day). I expect Braff’s new movie Wish I Was Here to be no less incredible if judging by this new track from Bon Iver written for the film. Such a moving song. Check out Heavenly Father below.

Here’s a lonely little number for all that are having themselves a melancholy Sunday. Chin up and remember, there’s always tomorrow.
Tuesday June 24th, 2014 20:51 First Aid Kit: The Bell
First Aid Kit’s follow up to 2010′s hit The Lion’s Roar is finally upon us, and it’s a real doozie. Boasting a beefier sound than that of their debut, the girls hit all the right notes on Stay Gold. Check out my favorite song (so far) below, and be sure to give this fantastic album a listen here! Chow.
Monday June 23rd, 2014 10:31 PAPA: I’m Not Sorry
Thanks to PAPA’s newest song “I’m Not Sorry,” what should be a semi gloomy day (the end of that game last night… the taste of victory was on our tongues!) is shaping up to be the chillest of Mondays. Check it out below… oh and I believe that we will win.
