Current favorite songs: May 2012

Music time! I have been gathering quite a bit of music as of late and so I thought I’d share my favorites with you. This time it’s a pretty good mix of different styles I think. There’s some rock, some indie, some dance, some chill out, a bit of everything really. I hope you enjoy! Leave a comment below and tell me about your favorites.

1.) Summer Heart – Come with me

This song makes me want the sun to start shining for real.

2.) Tender Forever – You have the woods

A bit dark and mysterious, but I love the droning drums in the background.

3.) Maps & Atlases – Winter

Now for a more cheerful vibe. I went to see these guys in concert a few weeks ago and it was surprisingly fun! It’s this folky, poppy, indie music which is unexpectedly danceable too. Sometimes cheap concerts (I paid 8 euros for the ticket) are the most fun ones because you have no expectations. If you get a chance to see them: please do so.

4.) Red Alder – Supernova

Dreamy indie pop with a hint of melancholy. I listen to this to take my mind off of things before I go to bed. It’s so relaxing!

5.) Magic Wands – Warrior (The XX Remix)

I found this song in my list titled as Black Magic, but I couldn’t find the song under that title. I did find a song called Warriors and found that this is the actual song. So I’m renamed the title. It’s a remix done by The XX. I love their minimalistic music. If you liked The XX original stuff, you will like this too. You can download the song for free here.

6.) Ricky Eat Acid – Only Girl

I’m still digging repetitive sample music such as this.

7.) Miles Kane – First of my Kind

A bit of rock to shake you awake after that slow tune. It’s Artic Monkeys (he’s part of it) with Oasis on Don’t Look Back to Anger meets The Verve (the latter not musically, but style and video wise). This is going to be part of the soundtrack to my summer.

8.) Simian Mobile Disco – Cerulean

Simian Mobile Disco is releasing a new record soon (or already did so by now). Some track have already been leaking. This is my favorite one so far.

9.) Swanky Tunes & Hard Rock Sofa vs. Basement Jaxx – I Wanna Be Your Dog vs. Where’s Your Head At

Swanky Tunes & Hard Rock Sofa vs. Basement Jaxx – I Wanna Be Your Dog vs. Where’s Your Head At

Let’s have some more dance music shall we? Dirty house mixed in with The Stooges’ I wanna be your dog AND Basement Jaxx’s Where’s your head at? It doesn’t get much better than this! You have to click the link though, couldn’t find it anywhere else. I originally found this on a remix EP by Afrojack.

10.) Peace Treaty Vs ESOT Vs Jay-Z & Kanye West – Heard You Were Walking In Paris (Hardwell MAKJ Bootleg)

Another dance mash up. Hardwell + Kanye, Jay-Z and some other wacked out dance tunes make for an awesome track.
