(31) Days of Good: 12.15.13

Had David Bowie not released a new album this year, Reflektor would have been my #1. This record is full of excellent tracks, but “Afterlife” definitely stands out and is easily my favorite.

Easily my favorite track from Jim James’ (My Morning Jacket) solo debut. I’m a sucker for slow-building doo-wop and strings, which this track combines beautifully.

This track is absolutely stunning, which explains why it’s been one of favorites all year. Had Johnny Cash ever collaborated with Enigma, I imagine it would’ve sounded a bit like this.

What is (31) Days of Good?

[on repeat] Phosphorescent//Song for Zula

I know we’re only three days into the new year, but this is my favorite song of 2013 (for now at least).  Had Johnny Cash ever collaborated with Enigma, I imagine it would’ve sounded a bit like this.  “Song for Zula” from the forthcoming album Muchacho, which will be available March 16th on Dead Oceans.
