Just one day left of GOOD…and seeing as how it’s New Years Eve, here are my favorite tracks from 2010 that make the perfect additions to any Rockin’ New Years Eve Party playlist.
Vacation fun + Laziness = Extra short post today (but you can always find more GOOD over at 35mmBeats)
Frankie Rose (Vivian Girls, Crystal Stilts, Dum Dum Girls) went out on her own this year and the results were fantastic. I fell in love with this track back when I first listened to the self-titled debut and it’s still in heavy rotation on my pizzle. More Frankie Rose & the Outs here.
So, this song by Savoir Adore was originally released in 2009, but the EP was released this year and it’s too good not to include here.
KCRW, LA’s only good radio station, introduced me this wonderful Mexican, singer/songwriter, Carla Morrison. I haven’t heard a song by her that I haven’t liked, but Una Salida (enjoy the acoustic version below) from Mientras Tu Dormias… is my favorite.
Indie folk duo, Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward, were back this year with She & Him’s Volume Two.
I really enjoyed this album, especially the cover’s of I Can Here Music and Gonna Get Along Without You Now, as well as the first single, In The Sun, but my favorite track is Don’t Look Back — a song about love that parallels the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice.
Purchase on iTunes.
Magic Kids is an indie pop rock band from Memphis. They released their debut album, Memphis, this Summer and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’m really digging these guys right now and can’t wait to hear more, probably because they remind me of one of my all time favorite bands — The Beach Boys. In fact, The Guardian says “says their songs are so Beach Boys 1963-64, they should only be heard in a Duece Coupe.”

First up, congrats to my sis! She’s getting married today and i’m super happy for her. Second, i’m officially on vacation as I write this and it feels GLORIOUS! So, in celebration of both occasions, i’ve got two extra good picks for today’s edition of GOOD.
