New music we should all hear

Recommended Posts

Good god. I haven't visited this place in approximately 10 centuries.

I just want to recommend Joanna Newsom honestly. Its funny how music can touch your heart. What she makes is truly special. Unique from anything else in the universe. Its not just her compositional genius or the incredible lyrics, or unique voice. Its everything.

I cant say enough good things about her and I could go on all day, but who am I kidding? All of you people probably already know this.

I love this single by Ellie Goulding:

I want to have sex with this man, please:

Bombay Bicycle Club - Always Like This

[official video]

(live session recording)

Like this, like this, like this.

They look so ordinary and normal and amateur and yet are awesome and hit all the sonic sweet spots. The guy's vocals are kinda like Noah Lennox's in Animal Collective's 'What Would I Want? Sky'. I freakin' love all their music videos.

AWESOME dance competition video:

(Starring Kim & Vicky)

Them hipster gurlz be smokin'. (I really wish they didn't. Tobacco kills.)

Swedish girls > London girls > New York girls > entry-level college hipster-gurlz.

She has such nice legs.

NIVA - the boy from the sun

How I discovered this song: I was listening to some Panda Bear ("Last Night at the Jetty") and saw a pair of legs in the related videos and clicked.
