Eliza And The Bear- Upon The North
So happy that these guys have gotten a ton of blog pickup since the last time I posted about them. I’m also toootally doing my I-told-you-so-dance right now..
Big Boi Ft. T.I. and Ludacris – In The A
True story: I may have more songs by Ludacris and T.I. on my iTunes than most people would probably expect. The collaborations on Big Boi’s new album are pretty fantastic, and this happens to be one of my favorites. Phantogram? On three songs? Yes, please. Kid Cudi? Yes. Wavves? Yes. Kelly Rowland? What the hell, yes! And what’s great about them is that it’s not just that they’re featured on the songs, but you can clearly see how they’ve influenced them. “She Hates Me” is totally a Cudi song. “Shoes For Running” has an obvious taste of Wavves. I think it’s kind of exciting to see how these sounds mix together. Anyway, speaking of Wavves..
Wavves – Sail To The Sun
The Babies – Baby
Wild Combination – Great Expectations
There is a baby in this video, therefore I like it.
Lucius – Ghosting (Freelance Whales )
Love love love this cover.
Colorama – Old Fashioned Girl
Starfucker – While I’m Alive
Springtime Carnivore – Last One To Know
This band name is kiiiinda awesomesauce.
St. Lucia – All Eyes On You (Pacific Air Remix)
Rihanna ft. Mikky Ekko – Stay
So I might have gone through Rihanna’s album in it’s entirety, and I might have come to the conclusion that it’s 95% terrible. But thank god for Mikky Ekko. This song is straight up beautiful.
