Lips - Everything To Me (Adventure Club Remix) (Official Video)

Find Adventure Club on their Sound Cloud. This looks like so much fun!

'Pictures' Official Video (HD) - Benjamin Francis Leftwich

"If you are afraid don't be,
I have the whole thing planned,
We’ll start in the ocean baby,
And when we find the land,
We will be thankful to,
All of our friends,
That they didn't leave us,
As we got to the end....."

Empire of the Sun - Without You

Compelling and disturbing. I tend to admire that a bit in art.

Empire Of The Sun is Luke Steele & Nick Littlemore of Australia. Their website you can find  HERE.

Product Plug?

I hate to admit, but I get very one-track-minded when I like a thing. Give me a song I love, and I'll play it over and over. Give me a music site I dig, and I might get wrapped up for a bit. I am hooked on Spotify. I am sure there are other arguable interfaces. I have tried some, but not all. However, I am SOLD on the premium package. It is the best $10 I'll spend all month.


You can try it for free for 48 hours. They will send you an email where you are able to follow a link to get 30 more days free IF you give them your card number. Then, cancel or pay $10/month. I'm keeping my iTunes, and not to knock iTunes by any means. However, Spotify is giving me major unlimited play capacity from home and the ability to have my playlists on my iPhone. Loving it.

CONS: Have to change settings immediately or it starts blasting stuff to your Facebook profile. Super easy interface. Minor adjustment to resolve conflict. Some artists not there or not available and certain albums could be missing from an artist' library. My biggie was that the commercials drove me nuts and you can't get rid of those until you pay your $9.99....

The Jacksons: Show you the way to go. Live 1977 at Musikladen

On Musikladen, a West German music television program that aired 1972-1984. Much like Burt Sugarman's Midnight Special which aired on NBC in the US during the same time period, Musikladen featured all kinds of amazing musicians hip to the time. Check out this gem.

Peter Wolf Crier- Settling It Off

Love that Wisconsin sound, huh?

Amy Winehouse- Stronger Than Me

Portugal The Man- Got It All

Portugal The Man of Portland and Alaska. I love those uprising, youthful renaissance sort of songs. And a weakness for falsettos.

Pieces of What- MGMT on Interface

A favorite.

Thanks Interface. Thanks Spinner.

STRFKR- Medicine (Live on Fearless Music)

I have hearted STRFKR into my playlists before. Loved seeing this. Silo says the song is catchy and has a good beat. "Take your medicine. Take your medicine."

Thanks Fearless Music You've always got great variety and super sound quality.

It reminds me of way back when I went to see Mouse on Mars, Junior Boys, and happened to stumble on the opening band Ratatat. This song is very Ratatat- Seventeen Years.

Miike Snow- Animal

Always. Every day. Great poetry.

Here's a cover by Sky Ferreira on Hype Machine I admittedly played this one out crying a birthday away without my friends. Ahhhh sweet music- you are the nectar of emotion. The bad times, too.

Tennessee Ernie Ford Sings 16 Tons

I can't get this out of my head lately. This song was written by Merle Travis based upon his family's experience as coal miners in Kentucky. The song was written in 1946. A timeless jewel.

Angus and Julia Stone - Big Jet Plane [Official Music Video]

This vibe is in sync. When you get older and the beauty of unabashed love is virtually lost to you.... When you need to be the Wendy to your Peter Pan.... When you are young and at life's mercy. Songs like these are therapeutic.
Sometimes, we are late to find sweet little gems like this hard working, brother-sister, Aussie duo.

Sleigh Bells- Crown On The Ground

This duo from Brooklyn was named Pitchfork's 57th best track of 2009. Their debut album Treats was very well received. They are supposed to have a new release in early 2012. (Which they did, and Girlie was all over everything!!! Looking good, too.) Too popular for me now???? We'll see..... This track is great to play on a jukebox. It might blow the speakers.

You can check out Alexis Krauss' doing it live here:

sweeeeeeeeeeeet I heard this on the radio where every so often I find a gem. I come to find out they were at Coachella, so I am obvs behind the times here. But yes. Digging this. I want to say exactly who is coming to mind here... Silver Sun Pickups? Crossed with....? A touch of Swervedriver? Karen O/Yeah Yeah Yeahs? Love Ritzy Bryan. Darling.

Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin, Chet Atkins, John Mayer, Donavon Frankenreiter, Nick Drake, Burl Ives, The Allman Brothers, Social Distortion, Tristan Prettyman, and countless others.

Apparently, love (or shall I say, loss of love) needs this sort of song.....

DAFT PUNK Coca-Cola Commercial 2011

Now that's marketing boys... Have a Coke & a smile. Harder, better, faster, stronger.

PJ Harvey - Let England Shake

That's my girl. This is punk rock. She is glam. She is vintage. This is black & white. Its Polaroid. Love, love, love her. She's been tops for me for far too many years than I'll admit out loud. Her ruggedness becomes my savage heart.

Secret of Kells - Aisling's Song- Pangur Ban

This animated feature was awesome. The Celtic knots that come to life throughout the film are unforgettable. This song is also a very catchy one. Pangur Ban
