(31) Days of Good: 12.14.15

gliss_langsom_dans

Gliss released one of my favorite albums this year with Langsom Dans. I’m torn between two incredible tracks from the record – “The Sea Tonight” and “Waves”. Ultimately, i’m going with “Waves” as my favorite because i’m a such a sucker for the track’s cinematic strings. With that said, please do yourself a favor and listen to “The Sea Tonight” when you’re done here.

“Up-and-coming Danish popstress MØ has released her warmest song yet with “Never Wanna Know,” a lush and laid-back beach jam. In the chorus, MØ sings “I never wanna know/ the name of your new girlfriend,” and manages to instantly break your heart.” via Stereogum

Buke-Gase-General-Dome

This Brooklyn duo was one of my favorite discoveries from 2012 and they continued to impress me this year with their second full length General Dome. “Houdini Crush” is easily my favorite track off the album and it really showcases the band’s unique (and infectious) noise-pop sound.

What is (31) Days of Good?

Favorite Albums of 2013 (so far)

favorites2013sofar

We’re halfway through 2013 and it’s shaping up to be quite the year in music.

Highlights definitely include the return of My Bloody Valentine, Daft Punk, and David Bowie, along with some really fantastic debuts from Disclosure, Ex Cops, Little Green Cars, On An On, and Rhye.  But with high comes the low, and though I was super excited for new albums from The Knife and Phoenix, they were quite the letdown in my opinion.

These are simply in alphabetical order.  It’s hard enough to rank my top 10, i don’t want to do it more than once a year.  Enjoy all of these on Spotify, which i’ll continue to update throughout the rest of 2013.  And with some highly anticipated releases still on the horizon, including new albums from Porcelain Raft, Smith Westerns, and Elton John, i’m sure this list will evolve.

But enough babbling, enjoy my favorite albums of 2013 (so far) and please check back in December to see which (if any) make the cut for my top 10 of the year.

(31) Days of Good: 12.4.12

Somewhat of an eclectic mix today.  Pretty much just shuffled through my favorites and these popped up.  I don’t think you’ll mind one bit.

 

Buke & Gase (formally Buke & Gass) is an up-and-coming Brooklyn-based duo with a really cool, original sound.   They released their 2nd EP, Function Falls, this year on Brassland and plan to release their debut full-length, General Dome, this coming January.  Keep an eye on these two, I anticipate a big 2013.

Hundred Waters is a 5-piece art-rock band from Gainesville, FL, and first indie act to sign with Skrillex’s record label — OWSLA.  This year saw the release of band’s first EP, Thistle (Remixes), and debut full-length, Hundred Waters.  I owe CMJ 2012 for this discovery (along with many others).

I didn’t know anything about UK singer-songwriter Jessie Ware until she randomly popped up one of my spotify radio stations.  I haven’t giver her debut LP Devotion a proper listen, but I love “Wildest Moments”.  Be sure to check out the Star Slinger remix (via soundcloud) after you finish up here.

Tilly And The Wall is one of my favorite indie-pop bands.  This year, the 5-piece from Nebraska, released their fourth full-length, Heavy Mood.  This was one of my most anticipated releases of 2012 and it totally lived up to my expectations.  And the album title is perfect.  This album is heavy and a lot of fun.  Check out the title track below and you’ll hear what i’m talking about.
