Broken Social Scene / Sweetest Kill

Pairs well with a rainy Sunday behind a laptop with work obligations. 10259893_10152006248401126_5368314896657425602_n
River flowing smoothly below the balcony. City scape looking dusty under the billowy, off-white clouds. Distant fragrance from the blooms inside.

Happy Sunday to you, wherever it may be spent.

Enjoy!

Phil Beaudreau / Won’t Get Away

Totals digging on Phil’s music. Stumbled into his music somewhere in my crazy imagesspiderweb of music searching late last night. In one of those “how did I get here?” moments where you realize you’ve got 12 pages open on all new artist FB pages, your Spotify playlist history is strangely unexplainable and far too many hours have passed in your tangled music discovery search. Yeah, those moments rule.
Anyway, Phil. He rules, too. Not much about him online but I’ll be featuring an interview with him soon so check back.
For now, he’s on Facebook.

Enjoy this fresh track!

Sounds So Fierce! Erik Hassle / Pathetic

I don’t know if it’s the California sunshine warming my skin again, the swishing of the erik hasslepalm trees outside my window or just pure contentment seeping from my pores but this track is heavier in cool than any amount of generated, fabricated, premeditated cool I’ve heard in a minute.

Erik Hassle. The answer to today’s “What the F should I listen to?” question.
Enjoy!

This Song Is Death By Pleasure: Future Islands / Seasons

My super rad friend and Scottish cheese & tractors expert passed along the livefuture islands performance of this song from the David Letterman show and I nearly jumped off my balcony in misplaced euphoria. Note to self: just dance next time.
This track is on repeat and I can’t think of a better way to dive head-first into the weekend than by shimmy this shit out of your floor with Future Islands. Honestly. Give me a break. By the way, they suffer from severe creative perfectionism because every single *&$^#!! track on their 2010 release, On The Water, is gold.
They’re on Facebook.

Enjoy! (And, seriously…check out that video link above. Tell me you don’t want to slither around like a feathered-hair ROCKSTAR).
(Sorry for the link…no embed code here. But, don’t worry your pretty little face…it’s straight to the track.)
