Post-Weekend Music with Lily & Madeleine

Happy Wednesday, and post-Halloween AND NOVEMBER you guys! Can’t believe it’s already November…only 49 sleeps until Christmas. That’s wild.

 

 

So, not sure how familiar you all are with these two Indiana sisters, Lily & Madeleine, but you MUST listen to their newest album “Fumes”. If you’re a fan of Fleet Foxes, First Aid Kit, Arcade Fire…and beautiful, striking harmonies, you’ll love them. Not to mention their record label, Asthmatic Kitty, is THE prestigious indie label started by none other than mister Sufjan Stevens. I mean, you HAVE to at least have ’em on your radar. ;)

 

So, here are a couple of tunes below that I’m loving, taken from their SoundCloud:

There it is, guys! Enjoy, and sorry it took me so long to post again….thanks for stickin’ around. <3

 

 

 

Video of the Day featuring UK duo Anushka

I can’t even explain how stoked I am on this London-based duo, Anushka‘s new album “Broken Circuit“. The electro, house, dance music that is created by these two is infectious. Victoria’s delicate, sweetly soulful croon is one to ogle over – you’ll never want to stop dancing and singing along. 

 

So, let’s get to it. Their new video for “Never Can Decide” – vocal bass music from the future. Colourful, soulful, dancy…just watch and you’ll know what I mean. ;)

Video of the Week(end)

 

I’ve been pretty stoked about this band lately, Sylvan Esso. Their new music video, “Coffee is exactly the title’s definition. If this track were actually a cup of joe, I’d be up every morning, eagerly. Like caffeine, this video is one giant sip of raw energy. This track, and video that goes along with it, has done the job of fueling the rest of my day in quite the refreshing manner. With the graceful vocals of Amelia Meath – reminiscent of early Regina Spektor and Feist – mixed with rockin’ synths and eclectic beats produced by Nicholas Sanborn. This duo sure knows how to make a buzz….a coffee buzz, if ya know what I mean. ;)

 

Check out their video for “Coffee” here:

 

Have a great weekend! Xo

Video of The Week

I just really, really love this song and video.

 

Travis Stewart’s Machinedrum project has taken the bass music world by storm, and now, he’s actively pursuing another rad project; Sepalcure. This duo – fellow bass traveller Praveen Sharma, aka Braille – is nothing short of amazing. Echoey, haunting vocals with deep, sentimental, synthy melodies. Check it out for yourself:

Song of the Wednes(Day)!

Hope you are all having a wonderful start to your Wednesday!

 

So, here’s my song of the day, along with the awesome music video! Really lovin’ what this NY band, ASTR‘s putting out right now. I waited (impatiently) for some new music by them to come out and voila! They just recently dropped an amazing EP titled ‘Varsity’, and it seriously rules. Varsity is made up of catchy pop tunes, with this amazing hip-hop/80’s vibe. Zoe’s vocals are bone-chilling, and every one of their songs will make you groove. Definitely check it out!

 

Check out their music video for “Operate” below:
