(31) Days of Good//12.19.14


One of my favorite discoveries of 2014. I love how this track continuously jumps around sections with a multitude of musical styles, influences, beats, and tempos.

Mas Ysa – Why [from Worth]




Hands down one of the best debut albums and most catchy songs of 2014.

Sylvan Esso – Coffee [from Slyvan Esso]



eternal summers - the drop beneath

Right out of the gates, this song hooks me. It’s one of those songs i’ll never get tired of and the perfect addition to a road trip playlist. Roll down the windows and blast this gem.

Eternal Summers – Gouge [from The Drop Beneath]




Lo-fi, fuzz pop, shoegaze, atmospheric, cinematic etc. All of these and more could be used to describe XO’s Heart. I highly recommend listening to this album beginning to end, but if your crunched for time, at least give “Coast” and whirl. And like Eternal Summers above, “Coast” is a must add to your road trip playlist.

XO – Coast [from Heart]



pains of being pure at heart - days of abandon

“Eurydice’ sticks with the band’s early-’90s dream-pop aesthetic, but it’s got a big, glowing widescreen chorus, and it’s the sort of thing that some very smart director could use to soundtrack a romantic-comedy running-in-the-rain montage.” (via Tom Breihan, Stereogum)

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart – Eurydice [from Days of Abandon]
