i was going through a music slump recently. i hadn't added anything new to my itunes library for a couple weeks, save britney spears' new song, 'hold it against me', which probably should never have been added in the first place. i decided enough was enough, so i went to some of my favourite music blogs and downloaded away, whole albums at a time. am feeling much better now.
some faves that i found:
ambling alp- yeasayer
if you return (feat. little dragon)- maximum balloon
love more- sharon van etten
heartbeat- blackbird blackbird
sunspray- blackbird blackbird
bloodbuzz ohio- the national
never never (sbtrkt remix)- little dragon
don't know why i seem to be in an electro/chillwave music mood. it's nice to listen to while walking around..
also, went to see little dragon last night!! was incredible. yukimi nagano (the lead singer) is adorable live and i would say she is now in serious competition with emily haines for best stage presence. she was like a little musical nymph dancing across the stage with her sequined leopard print shoes. they of course played one of my all-time favourite songs, 'blinking pigs' which was a transcendent experience in itself! jessica and i got there early enough that we were directly in front of the stage. here are some pics:
