(31) Days of Good//12.22.16

Leithauser (The Walkmen) and Rostam (Vampire Weekend) joined forces this year and released one of the year’s best. Hard to single out a favorite from this record, but I always seem to fall back on “A 1000 Times.” This track really showcases Leithauser’s howling vocals, Rostam’s signature sound, and how impressive the two sound together.

♩ Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam – A 1000 Times [from I Had A Dream That You Were Mine]



An evolved sound from one my favorite acts. I especially love these lyrics.

TRAILS AND WAYS – Happiness [from Own It]



Brilliant, jarring, and bass-heavy track from the always impressive Thao & The Get Down Stay Down.

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down – Nobody Dies [from A Man Alive]
