sunday funday

happy mothers day! i don’t mean to brag, but my mom is the most stellar of them all and i’m not kidding. my mom is incredibly fantastic and i love her so much.

on that note i turn to VICE for some words of wisdom about my friends parents:

“still feel about party moms the way I felt as a fourth-grader about teenagers who smoked cigarettes in their cars on the way to school.”

FOOD! all i want is a hamburger. i gave up red meat and bread, but its been a solid 3 weeks so i might give in for one day. relapse?

whats your sunday funday like? are you sleeping or making eggs at noon? either way you need a playlist. i’ve got you covered mrow mrow. it’ll be the most random and awesome playlist ever:

crystal castles “courtship dating”

gotye “bronte” need to fall asleep/feel like crying? this song is one of the most beautiful things i’ve ever heard.

and now that you’re thoroughly depressed listen to some of my favorite songs that have already been posted for an awesome sunday afternoon. live long and prosper.

and my actual favorite song:

 

“the walkmen have a million kids”

a interview with one of my favorite bands, the walkmen. they’re from DC (they went to st. albans and wrote a song called tenleytown), but are now NYC based and used to have their studio on 133rd.

 

I don’t even associate The Walkmen to a walkman anymore.
Yeah, it’s not so bad once you get over it but the first time you hear it, you’re like “who are these chumps?”

If you could redo it, what would you have named yourselves?
You know, we were gonna call ourselves The Murderers but that already existed. Somehow, we didn’t think of The Killers, which is an awesome band name for a terrible band. If we had named ourselves The Killers, it would have been pretty badass.”

may playlist

lemaitre “excuse me” don’t do anything else today until you listen to this. “excuse me princess, excuse me princess, i ain’t got time to save you again!”

two door cinema club “undercover martyn” i’ve listened to this song 100 times in 3 days. its one of my top 3  favorites on my may playlist right now.

kimbra “settle down” she’s so cool.

family of the year “st. croix” its a slap of good vibes and happiness to the face

bear in heaven “sinful nature”  the word epic is overused in conversation today, however i can’t find any other word to describe this song.

may playlist

miike snow “cult logic” went to see miike snow play at terminal 5 on april 24 with penguin prison opening. it was stellar getting to see penguin prison again (they were just as good as last time) but miike snow was pretty great. “cult logic” was the best song of the night.

blood orange “champagne coast” 2 minutes in this song is incredible. blood orange is the side project of dev hynes and hes a pretty cool guy in the brooklyn music scene right now.

cut copy “pharaohs and pyramids”

daft punk “face to face”

april playlist

the lumineers “ho hey” i’m such a music snob and i hate when other people have to show me a song, but the other day one of my good friends showed me this song and i completely fell in love with it.

air france “it feels good to be around you” can’t remember if i’ve posted this or not. its been a staple in my playlists since august. favorite! download

major lazer “get free (featuring amber of dirty projectors)” i’ve had a special place in my heart for major lazer since the early days of college and before diplo sold his soul chris brown and usher. the new album is a year overdue, but this song is so fantastic and worth the wait. ugh so good… GET FREE!

walk the moon “anna sun (fool’s gold remix)” brooklyn remix! solid.

santigold “disparate youth”  just… watch it. santigold is great. note: for all the non music snobs, did you know she was in the duck sauce “barbara streisand” video (aka greatest video ever as far as cameos go)?

april playlist

mark foster, kimbra, a-trak “warrior” mexican wrestling! an all around great friday night song…

 

real estate “easy” what a great song. instant calm.

 

miike snow “paddling out (penguin prison remix)” 

march playlist

“record collection 2012 (perseus remix)” by mark ronson and the business international  this song oozes cool. its like a slap of “hunky-dory” to the face. described by soundcloud as the barbadian national anthem. is it possible to fall in love with a song? (download)

march playlist

“no reason” VEGA  neon indian is a pretty awesome band aka its someone named alan palomo who makes unbelievable music. this song is incredibly epic. he goes by alternate names like “ghosthustler” and VEGA. in fact he either played a show or released some new music by the name VEGA for SXSW. download this awesome song “no reason” (FREE!) here or watch this awesome skate video set to the song below:

“ICBYS” zambri i’ve been a little in love with the crazy experimental pop/ weird indie bands from brooklyn playing at SXSW the past week. zambri from willamsburg, brooklyn are supposedly sort of hyped in the underground world before going to austin the past week.  they also sang the vocals one of my more recent favorite songs “true loves” by hooray for earth

march playlist

“the wave” miike snow  most important is new miike snow and the follow up video to “paddling out”!

 

“drop me a line (holy ghost! remix)” midnight magic holy ghost! is incredible. an all time favorite. apparently they “own more vintage synths than you ever knew existed.” nyc indie darlings remixing other nyc indie darlings…this is the free download!

“when the night falls” chromeo

march playlist

“‘sinful nature’ is an ode to all the shy girls out there. don’t restrain your inner freak. you could change the world if you just let yourself. tt’s also an inner dialogue between my responsible and not-responsible self.”-jon philpot from bear in heaven interview on npr

obsessed. angsty, romantic, slightly electronic, slightly indie rock. from their new album i love you, it’s cool i’m planning on going to this concert in brooklyn may 9th but other shows in new york, boston and dc so get tickets and come with me.

“sinful nature” bear in heaven (look you can even download it for free!)
