Tuned up Thursday: Music of the Moment (October 2014)

It’s nearing the end of the month again and that means that this week it’s time for another Music of the Moment. I will be sharing with you my favorite music picks that I discovered this month. All of them are indie and the result of my massive music scavenging efforts over summer.

Aerials – Summer Air

Even though it’s fall, I can never stop listening to more summery type songs. It keeps the sun in my life even though days are shorter and drearier. This song is just that little piece of summer that provides that much needed sun in my autumnal days. It has a relaxed beat, breathy vocals and a catchy melody line.

Cathedrals – Want My Love

I shared a song by Cathedral before I believe and this is another gem. I love, love the vocals on this. It’s a bit darker but still, it’s a relaxed song to listen to and perfect if you feel like embracing this fall weather and succumb to blankets and cups of tea.

Chromeo – Jealous (I Ain’t With It)

I am way late with this one, but I just got into Chromeo for real. This song is happy and catchy and just one of those songs you can dance around the room in while singing at the top of your lungs. I love me some catchy pop tunes to brighten up my day.

Factory Floor – How You Say (Daniel Avery Remix)

Over I found an exciting new playlist that I’m intend on following from now on. It features some awesome chillwave: one of my favorite types of music. This song is no exception to the genre. It gently cobbles along for a little over 8 minutes and adds plenty of mystery along the way.

Bill Withers – Ain’t No Sunshine (Lido Remix)

Another remix, but not one that isn’t brilliant. I love the original song by Bill Withers, but this takes the song straight into 2014. It adds the perfect amount of added drama combined with some cleverly added house elements. A song that keeps you listening for more.

Made in Heights – Pirouette

Another artist I’m totally into right now is Made in Heights. I have a few of their songs and I’m loving every single one of them. The vocals are nicely mellow, while a tumbling beat accompanies a melody line that sounds like someone started to gentle tinker along on a few pots and pans.

Noosa – Walk on By

Noosa is another artist that has been popping up on my radar more and more these past few months. Apparently this song is already 2 years old, but that doesn’t change that it’s a beautiful song. A bit of indie pop that starts off quite middle of the road, but morphs into an interesting listen for the chorus.

Say Lou Lou – Peppermint

I love the mystery of this song. Say Lou Lou is a name I’ve seen around, but I hadn’t heard anything yet, until this month. This is a perfect late night, unwind at the end of a long day type of song. And those also happen to be one of my favorites.

Seafret – Give Me Something

The first acoustic guitar song from the post. When I first heard this it reminded me of a more toned down Ben Howard. But then the beat hits half way through and this song ends up being the perfect mash up between acoustic folky type music and electronic chillwave. Me likes!

Spoon – Inside Out

Spoon released a new record and I’ve really been liking this song. It’s a tad bluesy with a hint of pop thrown in the mix. I especially like the raspy vocals. The song is a tad slow at times and sometimes I wish it would pick up somewhere in the middle, but it’s that determined steadfastness that got me in the end.

What are your favorite songs this month?
