We’re throwing these up a day early this week because a) we’re excited about them and b) the brains behind this outfit are going backpacking in Uzbekistan for memorial day weekend, and are leaving their iPads @ home. Without further ado, our songs of the week…
Bjork – Earth Intruders
Every time I read about the BP oil spill or eyjafjallajokull this song pops into my head.
Also I <3 bjork.
Wolf Parade – What Did my Lover Say? (It always had to go this way)
Wolf Parade hasn’t changed their sound – and that’s a good thing.
Janelle Monae – Cold War
Janelle Monae, my current ubercrush, delivers a haunting vocal performance over a beat that I can only assume is Big Boi’s making this track sound like the awesome love child of Bombs over Baghdad and I Want You. You’ll be singing this for weeks, guaranteed.
Fever Ray – Seven
I regret missing Fever Ray at coachella. Her album has grown on me a ton since then.
The Kills – Last Day of Magic
Allison Mosshart before she started rocking hard in The Dead Weather.
Kanye West – Power feat. Dwele
Coming out of nowhere, Kanye proves he’s still a musical genius.
Broken Bells – The Ghost Inside
All songs that incorporate clapping are brilliant. This is no exception.
