This picture and the topic of music have absolutely nothing in common. But I love this old picture my mom came across this weekend in our attic. And I can't help but share the music I am currently obsessing over because I am a firm believer that you should definitely go download it. all of it.
1. Lykke Li Her entire new album, entitled Wounded Rhymes, seriously rules. You should think about downloading the whole thing. If not, go for Youth Knows No Pain, Sadness is a Blessing, Love Out of Lust, and Get Some. Thinking about this album makes me giddy. It's so good.
2. The Sounds A new found favorite. Sometimes I don't always have faith in us girls having the vocals to deliver but Maja Ivarsson's got it. Truly, listening to her makes me feel empowered. It's weird. Maybe that's why I am so obsessed with this band. Or maybe it's their cool new wave, indie sound. I don't know but you should go listen to Yeah Yeah Yeah, Something to Die For, and Wish You Were Here (a tear jerker at it's finest).
3. The Limousines Where have these bands been hiding? Truly. This California duo rocks the indie electronic sounds of the times. I remember first hearing their song Internet Killed the Radio Star and liking what I was hearing. But, it wasn't until recently that I dug a little deeper, only to find some true gems such as Very Busy People, Flaskaboozendancingshoes, and Fine Art. It all makes me want to dance.
[on a side note, my mom tried to tell me that that picture up there is of my Uncle... excuse me? what is my family not telling me? this must be a mistake.]
