(31) Days of Good//12.1.18

Technically a 2017 release, but it dropped at the end of the year and I wasn’t able to feature it during 31days2017. It’s a shame I missed the opportunity to feature it last year, but this song is too good to completely pass over and i’m happy to kickoff 31days2018 with this excellent single.

Solar Estates – Tonight [single]
[solarestates.bandcamp.com]

 

This track is super fun. The build up is addictive and I can’t help but sing and dance along to this track with every listen.

Ezra Furman – Love You So Bad [from Transangelic Exodus]

I mean this in the best, possible way. I hope a new Pitch Perfect movie so the Bellas will perform as their inevitable, show stopping final number.

CHVRCHES – Get Out [from Love is Dead]
[chvrch.es]

 

Another fantastic 2017 release that I missed. Stunning. Gorgeous. Beautiful. Everything you expect from a Sufjan track.

CHVRCHES took the Bieb’s best track and made it better.

♩ CHVRCHES – What Do You Mean (Justin Bieber cover)

[chvrch.es]

 

screaming-females-feat-2

Ryan Adam’s 1989 cover album got all the press, but Screaming Females rendition of Swift’s infectious “Shake It Off” deserves it. Frontwoman Marissa Paternoster’s vocals are one-of-a-kind and she fucking shreds at the 2:54 mark. You’ll either love this or hate it. I for one can’t get enough.

(p.s. If you’ve never checked out The A.V. Club’s Undercover series, what the heck are you waiting for?)
