in my ears part once

shiver shiver by walk the moon
I cannot even begin to explain how much I love this song. And this band, OHMYLORD. You can't help but to bump your head to this song, it's amazing.

super rich kids by frank ocean
let's be real..."coming out" was one of the best things that happened to frank ocean's career. it made him  more relevant, so more people checked out his album and ended up loving it....but anyways, this song is hella dope. Another head bobber.

wasted years by maroon 5
So i'm not a huge fan of the direction that maroon 5's music has gone in the past few years, so when i discovered that this song was originally supposed to be on Songs About Jane (their first album) I about died. Definitely sounds like something that would be on their old album. And I love it.

  chasing echoes by the lonely biscuits
oh gosh every time I listen to this song I fall deeper and deeper in love with john p's voice. he sounds like an american version of james morrison. and gravy is very analytical, which is refreshing. very chill music. excellent and original.

fixin' by walk the moon
once again a FABULOUS song by the AMAZING walk the moon. this is slowly becoming my favorite song by them. this one is more of a knee shaker. and the lyrics, oh man. the instrumentation alone is incredible. this song is my heart and soul.

where i sleep by emeli sande
I think she was a vh1 you oughta know artist? I don't know I saw her video "next to me" and I kind of liked it so I did a quick listen to her album and lovvvvved this song. it's so simple yet powerful. her voice is perfection in this song.

floats my boar by aer
This song is...well it is what it is. It's about chillin, being laid back, and not taking shit too seriously. It's a summer anthem. And it doesn't hurt that carter is completely precious.

  warrior by kimbra, mark foster, a-trak
You all know how much I love foster the people, so when I saw that kimbra (another artist I adore) and mark foster did a collaboration, I was like "whaaatt?!?!?" also I saw the video and I was like "whaat?" but it's a pretty cool song.

why am I the one? by fun.
if you don't know their song "we are young" clearly you are NOT from this planet. I remember watching their video for "all the pretty girls" a couple years back every morning on mtvU. And I remember back when I first heard we are you in 2011. why the continue to play this song well into 2012, i am not sure. but anyway, why am I the one definitely showcases their new sound, which is a little less quirky than their old album. but the lead singer nate's voice is still quirky and cute so don't worry.

bitter moon by zulu winter
reminds me of young the giant but british, and with a little more atmosphere. if that makes sense. a hazier version, i guess. definitely and up and coming band, indie tribal pop is going to be big.

that sunset by the lonely biscuits
such a chill summery song. lots of visuals going on here. john's voice sounds lovely as always and gravy is killing it. so chill, so perfect.

light up tonight by alex boyd
this song actually came out last august. and he was supposed to come out with an album. where that album is now, i don't know. but this is an excellent song. nothing like a little blue eyed soul to brighten your day.
