The White Stripes – Conquest

This song is bad ass.

The White Stripes – Conquest


Andrew Bird – Oh No

Wesleyan (MGMT, Santogold, Boy Crisis, Amazing Baby) seems to just pump out musicians like Duke breeds NBA basketball players. Andrew Bird sits quite comfortably with the aforementioned, perhaps the best musician from the bunch, he can play violin, guitar, mandolin, and glockenspiel and he’s a great whistler. His music is not as new sounding as some would like but in now way is it lacking. “Oh No” is the highlight from his upcoming album “Noble Beast.” Good stuff.

Lily Allen – 22

I like Lily Allen ; ]

This song is about a girl who spent her 20’s partying it up, living the life and soon realized she was 30, alone, in a mediocre job and with no sight of love. Tragic.

Cause all she wants is a boyfriend, she gets one night stands.
She’s thinking how did I get here? I’m doing all that I can…
It’s sad but it’s true how society says her life is already over.
There’s nothing to do and there’s nothing to say.
Until the man of her dreams comes along picks her up an puts her over his shoulders. It seems so unlikely in this day and age.”

Dee Dee Sharp – I’m Not In Love

Dee Dee Sharp

Don’t know how many time’s I’ve tried to explain this to my ex-girlfriends. The intro and outro are absolute bliss.

Im not in love, so don’t forget it
Just a silly phase I’m going through.
And just because I call you up,
Don’t get me wrong, don’t think you gotten me…
I’d like to see you, but then again that doesn’t mean you mean that much to me.
So if I call you, don’t make a fuss,
Don’t go and tell your friends about the two of us…”

Haha, you can’t take yourself too serious when you like someone ; ) One of the most authentic love songs I’ve ever come across. High quality.

Kings Of Leon – Use Somebody

From one of the best albums in 2008, just thought I’d post it again so you don’t forget. Great song.

Empire of The Sun – Walking On A Dream

Another great song that just doesn’t get old. The video is flat out weird but I love it.  Great party music.

Okkervil River – Lost Coastlines

The standout track from The Stage Name’s, this track never gets old.

Friendly Fires – Paris ft. Au Revoir Simone (Aeroplane Remix)

I’ve heard a lot of Aeroplane stuff, but this is by far the best from the Belgian producer/DJ duo. Thanks to Steph Lund for reminding us about this. Paris, Je T’aime. Great song, great remix.

The Raconteurs – Rich Kids Blues

The Raconteurs

No synths, not much experimentation and yet these guys still manage to stay relevant in the age of space age bachelor pad music. Their second album “Consolers of the Lonley” was refreshing to say the least, some simple, good ol’ guitar music. “Rich Kids Blues” is my favorite track but the entire album is a great listen. And yes the lead singer sounds like Jack White from the White Stripes because it is Jack White from the White Stripes. Good stuff.

The Black Ghosts – Repetition Kills You (RAC Remix)

Great remix. The original is good too but the production sounds a little generic, either way “The Black Ghost” is a cool band. Their lead singer is Simon Lord, former lead for Simian, now know as Simian Mobile Disco. Check them out.
