“You should know, money can’t buy you love.” Wise words from Chasing Kurt, and a phrase that we hear all too often in our society. But money is one tempting motherfucker, isn’t it?
In my most recent romance, my partner had considerably more money than I. To be honest, it made me slightly uncomfortable, but I very much liked him and I chose to overlook our income disparity because, so long as we were both rich in love, money was a non-issue… or so I thought.
I’m no stranger to “nice” things. I know what is high quality and what is not, so it’s a personal pet peeve of mine when I’m informed of an object’s value unprovoked. My love would not-so-subtlety mention to me how expensive everything he owned was (this jacket was $1,000; that’s a $500 nightstand; I drive a $120,000 car), but this was by no means impressive, it was distasteful. That aside, I still adored him.
After months of smooth sailing, our relationship hit a spot of choppy water that would determine if we would sink or swim. During our disagreement, which had nothing to do with money, my love teetered off on a tangent regarding how much he was spending on me, whereas I was only giving him “cute,” sentimental trinkets of my affection. Aside from being off-topic, holding one’s money above another’s head is plain disrespectful and I was beyond hurt.
I came to realize that he’d been keeping tabs in his head of every dinner he’d taken me out to and every present he’d ever bestowed on me, and I was foolish enough to think that these were unconditional acts of love rather than ploys used to make me grovel in his supposed greatness. Coming to this realization was difficult, but realizing that I was not viewed as an equal in our relationship was even more
difficult, and so I
He should know, money can’t buy you love.
I first found this song on Maya Jane Coles album, DJ Kicks, which I highly recommend to everyone. You can stream the album after the jump.
Set to be released on January 29th, “Hummingbird” could be one of the top indie albums of the new year. Although you can only pre-order the album, two songs have already been leaked.
While “Bowery” has a more heavy sound, “Breakers” was intentionally released as a single on iTunes to show fans that this album will have the same great music that was produced on their critically acclaimed freshman album “Gorilla Manor.”
Some honorable mentions from “Gorilla Manor” would be “Airplanes” and “World News.” So if you don’t know the Local Natives, I would give them a listen because this is the best of the best for them.
As for the new album, I would absolutely listen to these two
tracks especially “breakers” and look out for the album because I think we can expect great things from this band.
M83′s critically acclaimed and widely beloved album, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, came out in October of 2011, yet it’s success and imprint on our culture continues to endure. The album has subtlely entrenched itself into pop culture: into TV commercials and radio play, cinematic montages and critical acclaim (nominated for Best Alternative Album at the 55th Grammy Awards).
Personally, I think the album’s success stems from the beautiful vision in which it was conceived. Each song seems to be a sublime recollection of a dream. It is an emotional ode to that dream’s deep-rooted meaning and far-reaching potential. It brings the listener to a place where creativity is abundant, curiosity is rewarded, and nearly everything has an air of mystique.
The musikk video for their hauntingly beautiful song, “Wait,” was released yesterday. It is a stunning video to behold. Allow M83 to either transport you back to a time in your life when
imagination was abound, or to catapult your mind forward to a place of creative majesty.
“Where’s that sunrise you’ve been waiting for?”
Is this it?
Yea, if that’s not enough of a reason to get your early morning run in, than I don’t know what is…
Pierce Fulton has been a standout producer this year, creating one of my favorite remixes with “West Egg”, and now his latest track might trump it. Fulton remixes Mutemath’s track, “In No Time”, taking his serene vocals and laying them over a subtle percussion driven beat.
Pierce excels in chillwave creations that leave you in a mellow, dream-like state…
Shout out to Dan for sending it over!
Today I got my first dose of BenZel – two Japanese
kids tweens incredibly impressive teenagers – who released a progressive, uptempo beat called “Fallin’ Love.” To say it is catchy would be an understatement, and this is easily the best thing about your Monday; So whether you enjoyed an easy, sunny start to the week, or enduring a rainy, exhausting Mondaze, take a minute and make your day that much better…
You can also be thankful that their sock venture failed, which led to their musical exploration & adventure.
“ After many failed attempts to create a hypoallergenic ankle sock, they decided to put their efforts toward other creative ventures. Following hours of soul searching; they decided to start BenZel…they’ve been working on it since yesterday.”
“Things that are black and white- ya know there’s not a grey zone; it’s just straightforward it’s honest, and that’s kinda our goal, our whole vibe.”
If you love viagra cheapest online
ght-fresh-musikk-interviews-the-neighbourhood/” target=”_blank”>The Neighbourhood as much as I do, than their latest short bio video will quickly stoke the fire and fuel your obsession. In true form, the edit is shot entirely in black and white and personifies their creativity that is clearly extended through all aspects of their day to day life. The snapshots of their newfound reality is simple in character but motivating in nature, due to how quickly this opportunity has evolved for them this past year.
With the clear, direct knowledge that this SoCal collective has charmed their way into people’s hearts & headphones, I can easily affirm that this is the band to take away from 2012. As the year winds down, the holidays pull you this way and that – and your mind and earbuds become flooded with holiday music and end of year playlists – remember this: These guys are the takeaway. These guys created the lasting impression that paves the way for them to make more incredible music in the future.
So if nothing else, bring The Neighbourhood with you into the new year…
Oh and one more thing boys…if you don’t make it to Boston for a show soon, I will start hatching a plan to kidnap you next time I’m in cali and force you to wow the crowds on the East Coast.
Also, hit it here to check out our interview with the guys last Spring.
Dude, we’ve got some serious girl power going on here. And I like it.
The HAIM sisters are so f*cking cool – from their style, to their attitude,
to their basketball skills to their obvious musical rockstar talent – I just want to be their friends God damn it. We could borrow each other’s clothes….go shopping…cook trendy things like brussel sprouts and quinoa…I’ll even be their personal cheerleader/focus group for new music! Hell I can even keep up with their ‘basketball skillz’ – don’t they know I never made the middle school travel team for four years running?! Much to my dad’s dismay…
But I digress…
While we posted “Don’t Save Me” upon its release, their musikk video is a perfect opportunity to remind you how fantastic it is; It’s absolutely the perfect Sunnies Friday song, following right in line with the 2:30 slump. So go on and get up. It’s time to get ready for the weekend biddies.
Cop it on iTunes, here!
Ugh baby. This is exactly what I needed today – A brand new remix from The Knocks of Youngblood Hawke’s, “We Come Running.” While the original was an undoubtedly great song, everyone can use a little refresh once in a while; And like everything the Brooklyn duo creates, it’s simply just right.
With a slight dance party vibe that maintains the integrity of the indie pop song, it invigorates some excitement into your day – reminding you that if you’re up for it, the weekend starts tonight baby.
