BE STILL MY HEART
THIS VIDEO OF KURT VILE SURPRISING THE CROWD AT WARPAINT’S ECHOPLEX PERFORMANCE IN LOS ANGELES A FEW DAYS AGO.
They played Warpaint’s own Baby and formed a glorious holy matrimony between their incredible voices.
I hope these songs from Hundred Waters ease you to sleep tonight. But tomorrow morning when you hear your alarm you better get up and you better be running because you only have one October 22nd and one 2014 and that’s a damn lucky thing to get to experience.
Here’s the music:
Hundred Waters // Murmurs
Hundred Waters // Show Me Love
Kick Wednesday’s ass,
Just stay with me here.
Adult Mom // I Think I’m Old Enough
If you didn’t like that song, try this one:
SBTRKT // VOICES IN MY HEAD Ft. A$ap Ferg
If you weren’t feeling that one, listen to this one:
Seekae // Monster
Okay you have to like this one:
Laura Welsh // Hollow Drum
Seriously if you don’t like any of those you’re messed up in the cranium and should see a specialist.
Karen O (of Yeah Yeah Yeahs) always has something spectacular to offer to the wonderful world of music. Latest is an acoustic single “Day Go By,“ a preview track for her upcoming debut solo album Crush Songs. ‘Day Go By’ is the second single released from the album, the first being “Rapt” which was accompanied by a peacefully creepy video of K-O floating in a pool with some cool lighting and non-swim appropriate gear on. …(just watch the damn video yourself)
Ok now back to the highlight of this post:
Karen O // Day Go By
P.z. I forgot to mention that the album drops Sept. 9th through Julian Casablancas’ label CULT RECORDS.
Tom Misch is one of the most insanely talented 19 year olds I’ve ever encountered in my whole damn life.
He’s a composer, songwriter, guitarist, singer AND violinist. You’ve just been schooled by Tom Misch, and you probably haven’t even pressed play yet.
Here are a few of his latest and greatest tracks:
Tom Misch // Karma (feat. Loyle Carner)
Tom Misch // Moving Faster
Bearcubs x Tom Misch // Colours of Freedom
And he says he’s currently working on a full EP with singer Carmody. Here’s a taste on the kind of stuff they’ve done together:
Tom Misch & Carmody // Release You
WOWWWW HE IS JUST SO GOOD. Please explore the rest of his soundcloud on another occasion, or right now, or whatever.
peace and love,

When was the last time you heard a decent female cover of Kanye West.. or any decent cover of Kanye West for that matter… That’s what I thought.
Girls rule and boys drool!!! *high fives everyone in close proximity*
Laura Welsh // Bound (cover)
She’s a freakin’ angel
❤ lu ❤
Laying on a raft in the still ocean with cumulus clouds above you and the sky is a nice dark blue and this song is playing from the heavens:
Nick Hakim // Pour Another
By now you probably can tell that Girls Girls Money loves a little Chet Faker at like, any moment of the day..
I stumbled across this insanely ridiculous video of Chet Faker covering Sonia Dada’s Lover with 10 random (and obviously musically talented) pals. It might be the most beautiful thing I’ve heard all week or month or year. Listen/watch below.
You’re welcome, again.
A special presentation brought to you by local taxpayers
Also known as good bands performing in live and public places. Here are some of my favorite videos of great artists swooning at least a sliver of the public with their sounds.
Zola Jesus live at the Guggenheim — Avalanche
Lykke Li & El Perro Del Mar — Dance Dance Dance
Local Natives — Breakers
First Aid Kit — I Met Up With A King
Thank you for participating

This was performed and recorded almost 2 years ago, but who cares.
Because who doesn’t want to hear Father John Misty cover The Flaming Lips‘ Do You Realize??
~~~~~thank me frickin’ later~~~~~
also: buy Josh Tilman’s fragrance Innocence by Misty because it’s ridiculous that he has a $%$*&$ fragrance. Plus it costs 75 dollars so I’m pinning it on you guys to go and buy it cause I definitely will not- even though it will probably make me smell like a fairy orange blossom princess.
