The Wire – HAIM
Jul 2013 31

For avid FM readers, it’s no secret that I have a major girl crush on the HAIM sisters. They’re too cool for school in the best way possible, and I’ve yet to hear a song I’m not in love with.

The girls laid down a studio version for “The Wire”, which can only be described as the quintessentially modernized, 90’s beach song. So much like I associate my childhood beach days to Amy Grant’s “Baby Baby”, or “The Sign” by the epic, Ace of Base, this will be able to join that category in a weird, futuristic way.

"I Wanna Go" – Yuna
Apr 2013 24

Wednesdays filled with warmth and sunshine feel like a perfect day for a delicate song. Yuna’s new release, “I Wanna Go” embodies joy, peace, and the serenity of lying in an open meadow surrounding by blossoming flowers…Did anyone else feel that visual??

I think everyone can enjoy something this beautiful, and I hope it makes your stressful humpday and easy one.

“I Wanna Go” will be featured on her upcoming EP, Sixth Street, due out May 7th!

Musikk Video: "Can't Hold Us" – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Apr 2013 23

There are few times I’m at a literal loss for words, but this is one of them.

“Can’t Hold Us” has been a fan favorite for Macklemore fans for a few years now; we’ve seen another solid video in the past, but now that they’ve successfully crossed that mainstream threshhold, it’s only fitting that we get another one.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s team has always done a phenomenal job at making creative videos on little to no budget, so if we were to only imagine what they could do with a budget…it would look something like this seven minute masterpiece.

Daft Punk "Get Lucky" (ft. Pharrell & Nile Rodgers)
Apr 2013 18

Since Daft Punk released their abbreviated (teaser) version of this song, there has been phony leak after phony leak of the full single.  But alas, the full version has finally leaked. Too bad the rumored Coachella Weekend One appearance didn’t pan out, but take solace in the fact that DP is back, and their new album drops May 2013.  Until then, enjoy this smooth jam!


Album Stream: I Love You – The Neighbourhood
Apr 2013 17

The California quintet graciously offered up their full length, debut album for streaming, in anticipation of its release on April 23rd. I Love You features some old school favorites like “Sweater Weather” and “Female Robbery”, while showcasing what will soon become newfound favorites.

“Alleyways” and “W.D.Y.W.F.M?” encapsulate everything we’ve grown to love from The Neighbourhood – smoky, mysterious wisps of

a desperate love, and a steady dark pop instrumental. “Flawless” deepens the star-crossed lovers thematic, while strengthening their ability to reach listeners’ desperate heartstrings.

As we’ve come to expect, this full length project can be appreciated in it’s entirety, from the first song to the last…

"Oh Sailor" – Mr Little Jeans
Apr 2013 11

Mr. Little Jeans personifies a modern day lullaby.

Her latest single, “Oh Sailor” eases you into a mellow, lackadaisical frame of mind, and instills a sense of calm.

I’m unsure if I’m reacting to a sever lack of sleep, or have become encapsulated by her sing-song approach, but I was completely motionless and in order viagra canada a trance

like state while watching this video – and it is exactly what I needed.

Sky Ferreira – "Everything is Embarrassing"
Mar 2013 22

I feel like all of the sudden this song is EVERYWHERE, and that is totally fine by me! I first heard Sky Ferreira when her Ghost EP came on my Spotify radio, but I neglected to investigate her sound further than that… cut to over a month later and I’ve been hearing EVERYONE sample “Everything is Embarrassing,” which is by far my favorite track on the album.

The song is featured in The Magician’s soft viagra Magic Tape Thirty-One (which I posted yesterday) and Moon Boots’ March 2013 Mix, among others.

I love this song. It

has a very catchy melody, strikingly relatable lyrics, and a certain sweetness that cannot be ignored. Since hearing it crop up seemingly everywhere lately, I was dying to know more about Sky. Her music video above, which has over a million views, gives me a slightly better idea of who she is. I expect to see a lot more from her in the future. In the meantime, check out that video and stream the rest of Sky’s Ghost EP after the jump!

Happy Friday,

<3 Hazzard

Musikk Video: &amp;amp;amp;quot;Sweater Weather&amp;amp;amp;quot; – The Neighbourhood Remake
Mar 2013 06

Will The Neighbourhood make our “Best of 2013”  music video lists two years in a row- incidentally with the same song?

The obviously artistic group re-released “Sweater Weather’ with a new video that serves as an update to the original. They embark on a search for happiness as they weave themselves through an ironic series of beautiful imagery. You could focus on the black and white tendencies which they serves as a force to prove the solidarity that music holds; but for this video, I chose to see the grey as the song reflects the feelings of a person searching for something that just

feels… right.

And as always, my praises won’t do them justice.
