This Watsky jam was the sole reason I made it through my workout today. It’s just too damn hot in Boston… that being said, I’d rather die than see snow flakes falling from the sky again. Check out “Whoa Whoa Whoa” below.

Before yesterday I had no idea who you were Reuban And The Dark, but as of today consider me a fan. Mere seconds into the opening song off of these guys’ new LP Funeral Sky, I knew it wouldn’t be my last listen. Sure enough, I spent the entire workday repeat listening. I’ll let the thing speak for itself… Check out “Bow And Arrow” below.

Forgive me if this blurb is a bit senseless as I just returned from my five year college reunion and can’t quite focus on much of anything. Given my current headache, I immediately sought out some relaxing string heavy tunes when I fired up Spotify this morning. Luckily for me, strings mastermind Owen Pallet just dropped a new album. Check out “Chorale” below.

Sylvan Esso’s excellent song “Coffee” has been ruling my brainwaves all week. Man, those last 2 minutes are just the ultimate payoff. In an effort to further showcase said song’s greatness, take a listen to this interesting remixed version. Get up, get down.

Usher: Good Kisser

Usher is on the top of his game. Just when I thought he couldn’t beat the incredibleness that is “Climax,” he goes and creates “Good Kisser.” This is hands down the best song currently on the radio. Check it out.

Coldplay: O

I am finally getting around to the new Coldplay album, and the only thing I can say for certain is… Chris Martin is sad. Then again what else should you expect when you fall for a she-devil with an obsession with Kabbalah.  As was the case with Mylo Xyloto, I am not a big fan of Ghost Stories upon first listen. Why must these guys rely so heavily on synths? Throw the four of them into a room with a piano, a guitar, some drums, and a bass and let’s see what we get. If it’s half as good as A Rush Of Blood To The Head or Parachutes, chances are I will love it. Then again “O” ain’t that bad… Check it out below.

Lana Del Ray: Shades Of Cool

Word has it Ms. Lana Del Ray was paid upwards of 3 million dollars to perform three songs at the “Westdashian” extravaganza in Florence this weekend. In the words of the groom himself, “That Shit Cray.” I wonder if “Shades of Cool” was one of these three lucky numbers that helped make official what is Bound 2 be another fleeting money grab of a marriage. Check it out below.
