Heartless Bastards – Only For You
I’ve been listening to this band for years. There is just something about her voice. This particular song is so free sounding compared to their sophomore album. Their first album is raw and powerful, sophomore album a tad meandery, but this new album and song in particular is toe-curling-good.
Garbage – Blood for Poppies
The ’90s are calling and I will fight you for that phone. Always loved Garbage. Even when they pulled that stunt and wouldn’t let their song be on the LIFE DVD set. (Ok, maybe I’m harboring some side-eye over that still.)
Chris Isaak – Two Hearts
If Justin Hayward and Morrissey could spawn this is what would happen. Guh. I love his voice.
Beach House – On the Sea
Where did this band come from? No clue but they are awesome. Something vaguely Annie Lennox about the vocals. And I love the new wavy thing going on. Sorry, sorry. I should not be allowed to talk about music.
