Song time! Here are my 10 favorite songs of the past month. I’ve been digging tons of new tunes, but also some not so new ones. I guess the mix is getting more eclectic by the month. Hope you enjoyed the music and leave a comment below with your current faves!
Alt-J – Mathilda
I already liked this song, but ever since I saw these guys live at Pukkelpop I’ve been listening to this song non stop. It’s a kind of folky pop music with an electronic twist. Sorry that’s the best I can do for a description.
Frank Sinatra – I’ve Got You Under My Skin
Ah good ole blue eyes. I love me some Frank Sinatra and this is by far my favorite song by him. This came on while riding my bike through some late summer afternoon glow after a pleasant day at my new job. And I realized what I lucky and happy person I am. Life can sometimes be that simple.
Dragonette – Rocket Ship
Happy song time! I just smile whenever I hear this. It’s one of those ‘I want to dance around and sing-a-long’ type songs. Poppy in the style of Little Boots with a hint of Santigold.
DIIV – Doused
One of those songs that just comes on, but strikes you nonetheless. It’s guitars, a bit dark and dreamy with a hint of the 80s. Me likey.
The Constellations – Perfect Day
I’m just a sucker for catchy tunes and that’s what this is. Guitar driven power track with a dark edge to it. No wonder it was used on the Vampire Diaries soundtrack.
Stealing Sheep – Shut Eye
Folky pop songs with a hint of electro. Hmm… maybe it’s a theme for this months music?
Boy & Bear – The Village
Catchy sing-a-long folky tune. It’s hella short too, but it makes me smile. I like the rest of their album too and it’s on my ‘to buy’ list.
Harlan – Dancing on the Bed
Who said hipsters were uncool? Happy indiepop track that again makes you want to dance around your room.
Tom Day – Echoes
Now for something completely different: atmospheric/ ambient almost soundtrack like music, but with an elektro break beat twist to it near the end. Soothing!
Glowbug – Heatwave
Elektro indie track that just makes me want to jiggle or bop something. Again: a happy song. Hmmm… another theme. lolz.
