It’s like The Jesus and Mary Chain, Echo and the Bunnymen, and The Cure had a baby! A beautiful baby named “Century.” Swedish band The Mary Onettes really hit the mark on this track – gorgeous synth and dreamy soundscapes that irradiate dream pop at its finest. Though produced in 2009, you can definitely tell the band draws inspiration from the music of the 80s and 90s. Can’t you just feel the incandescent rays of sunshine listening to this single?
Who knew the cure for a drawn-out weekly affair is none other than The Cure? Friday is not complete for me without a listen to this classic tune. TGIF.
I’d never heard of Earth, Wind & Fire until my mother came home from the movie theatre a few months back and couldn’t stop raving about the film’s repeated use of the band on its soundtrack. Ever since then, she drops subtle hints about wanting an Earth, Wind & Fire mixtape. Seeing as Sunday is Mother’s Day, I finally got around to compiling a “best of” playlist for her. ”Shining Star” was the band’s first major billboard hit in 1975 and helped launch the group into scintellating stardom. So, here’s to my own shining star – love you mom!
Whoever does the music for House of Lies really knows their stuff, the show always has some great brooding songs with kickass bass. “Take It Off” by Savager, an up-and-coming producer from LA, is a great track with vocals provided by Hannah High. Dreamy dubstep done right.
BADASS. American performer Ryeisha Berrain (a.k.a. Rye Rye) is a 22-year-old with explosive talent and impressive dance moves to boot. I can’t not dance to this song slash parade around the gym like I own the place. Drop it like it’s hot, right?
I realize I posted “Thrift Shop” not too long ago…but these kids, man. Totally deserving of a second post. So much passion it’s infectious.
They’re baaaaaaack! Heard this tune on the radio today and got chills – oh the power of Karen O. The new Yeah Yeah Yeahs album drops April 16 and I am oh-so-excited. I personally favor when the group goes for a more paired down approach and “Sacrilege” definitely appeases my wishes. And if you think I forgot about Nick Zinner on guitar, don’t you fret – he frets for us all.
