Speaking of Yeasayer, here’s one of their most recent “Fragrant World.” I love how tense their music is, and how quickly it breaks and build that tension. I also love how weird they are. This video is a good example, even if it is one of their more normal videos.
One of my favorite Cut Copy songs. Partially because it has a great electro-pop hook, but, to be honest, mostly because the chorus reminds me of Yeasayer and I can’t get enough Yeasayer.
Been looking for the right time to post this song for a long time. Following Lou Reed is a good time. It’s kind of like a smoothed out Lou Reed ballad. Beautiful music.
One of my favorite Lou Reed songs. He was such a gifted story teller. RIP, Lou.
Today in harsh transitions, we switch from the ballad-y, dramatic Best Coast indie rock to Earl Sweatshirt and Frank Ocean hip-hop. Frank moves away from his usual R&B style to a more pure rap style in this song, and it works really well. Also, it’s called Sunday and today’s saturday. Hilarious!
The long notes and dragging lyrics in this song really pull me in. It’s great.
I heard this song first on KEXP today. KEXP rules. The song does too. It sounds like a modern, revved up version of the best rock that came out of the 60’s.
