Anyway, the artists/tracks are all pretty new so please... enjoy!
MUSIC TO DANCE IN THE STREET TO:
---- NIKI AND THE DOVE - THE DRUMMER
It isn't the kind of music I listen to on the regular but there is just something about Niki and The Dove that makes me want to listen. I had a similar feeling when it came to Miss Kitten and the Hacker a gazzillion years ago. Even though I feel pretentious listening to these tracks in public - I love them and they do make me want to break out in dance... of course I always refrain and act like everyone else... not... haha!
MUSIC TO HAVE A CASUAL STROLL TO:
----MILES KANE - FIRST OF MY KIND
Miles Kane on this song really really reminds me of Echo and The Bunnymen and no, it's not the way he sings"moon" there is just something there... The pace and tempo of this song is actually quite useful as it means you can get to work on time and still look casual and cool whilst doing it. Or is it just me that walks in time to the music?
MUSIC THAT MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR IN A MUSIC VIDEO:
----JAMES N COMMON - DEVIL IN ME
If only he was attractive but he isn't and I don't think that'll change anytime soon, but I still love him. He sounds like a whiskey drinking, smoker that you'd find in the corner of an American bar. The kind who doesn't speak to anyone - doesn't actually like humans and wishes you were dead. Basically the kind of guy every stupid girl like myself... loves! haha
MUSIC FOR WHEN YOU'RE ABOUT TO FIGHT:
----DOT ROTTEN - ARE YOU NOT ENOUGH?
I think it is fair to say that Dot Rotten is possibly the only/first viable answer the United Kingdom has had to Eminem. Now, as much of a surprise as it may be... I was quite a big Marshall Mathers fan back in the day, as was my mom (because she is from the ghetto's like me) so yes... I think I may like Dot Rotten although every now and then I say Dot Cotton like the woman from Eastenders. Not good!
MUSIC THAT MAKES YOU THINK OF SUMMER:
----VARIOUS CRUELTIES - NEON TRUTH
There is nothing like a traditionally English sounding band with all the trimmings that make for a super summer sound. If anything I feel a little bit of an old school Mystery Jet's vibe from this song but that may just be because I have had a recent resurgence of love for them. Either way, I adore this track and based on that reason alone I feel it may play the soundtrack to Summer 2012.
MUSIC YOU ROCK YOUR HEAD/THROW YOUR ARMS TO:
----YOUNG GUNS - BONES
After Cheesy played me his package that was mixed to Papa Roach, it brought back a wave of emotion and reminded me of my old taste in music. It seems as though times have changed but the Young Guns seem to be keeping that whole genre alive and well. Maybe I need a "taste of chaos" in my life again? That is if they are still happening? Oh my god, how old am I?
MUSIC YOU CAN FALL ASLEEP TO:
----JASON MRAZ - I WON'T GIVE UP
It's just standard Mraz isn't it? He always knows how to make music that makes you feel tired... in a good way of course! It's just super relaxing, a little sad and at the right volume it can be perfect. I'm really looking forward to hearing the new album... if this single is anything to go by it should be amazing.
MUSIC THAT MAKES YOU WANT TO SPIN AROUND ON A SUNNY DAY:
----WARPAINT - UNDERTOW
I had been listening to this song on repeat for the past few weeks. Not like, all the time... just a lot of the time. Then my friend Chelsea posted it to me as it came on her ipod and she wanted to share the love of one of her favourite bands... coincidence? As incubus wisely said - there's no such thing! But either way, this is a lovely song and it is one of those that makes me wish I had a floaty white dress, daisy chains and a field with a single pony in it - to frolic with!
AND EVERY GOOD POST SHOULD END WITH SOMETHING LOVELY...
.....SO HERE IS WHAT REAL LOVE LOOKS LIKE
IN THE FORM OF CHUCK AND BLAIR FROM GOSSIP GIRL!
