I like to keep the streak of blog posting high! I never get tired of this song. I remember posting the SoundCloud track when it first came out, then posting the music video when it was released, and now their in-studio performance with KEXP.
What a great lineup! And of course we’re always a bit partial when our hometown heroes are on the bill. We’re looking at you Death Cab For Cutie and The Head & The Heart!
There’s a little bit of suspense taken out of the Super Bowl when all of the commercials get leaked before the actual game day, right? Regardless, we love Anna Kendrick and we find her to be quite endearing and funny. I know Pitch Perfect feels like forever away, but hopefully she’ll be in something before that that we can look forward to.
Miley Cyrus – #GETITRIGHT
So I’m a little bit embarrassed that this is today’s Song of the Day, but I watched her perform last night on Miley’s MTV Unplugged Special and really found myself enjoying it. Cute, no?
This looks so interesting to me. I’m really looking forward to checking it out when it’s released.
It’s their first ever! Shocking, right? It’s also really very adorable.
Would you believe that it has already been 4 months since our last “A Collection Part” post? I can already hear Veronica’s voice in the back of my head saying, “I can.” Every time I speak to the girl, she’s always asking for another one. Little does she know, constructing these take forever! Good news though, I’ve already started building Part 40 so hopefully we won’t have to wait as long for the next one, but if she had it her way, it would be every week.
Making this post this time around was quite refreshing to me. Veronica once asked me how I choose the pictures that I do for this post and I don’t know if I was ever able to give a great answer. I probably just said that I chose the pictures I liked, but I’d like to elaborate on that a little bit. I used to do a bit of photography back in high school and in the early days of college, I brought my camera with me everywhere I went. I love that these photos are being taken in ways that I never thought of before. They are various shots that spark something in me, but I have no idea what it is and because I can’t explain it or put it into words of some sort, I love it. Maybe that’s not a better explanation than before, but it makes sense to me!
I don’t know who Elijah Aaron is, but his live-loop cover of TLC’s “No Scrubs” is amazing. I love that he completely took apart this song and started with a bunch of sounds that was nowhere near to “No Scrubs,” but that it worked out in the end. Amazing.
It was May of last year when I was first stumbled upon Sam Smith on Pinterest. Seriously though, of all places, this was one of the most unlikely that I would find music inspiration. Someone that I had followed had pinned his acoustic music video of “Latch” and instantly, I fell in love. Shortly after that the Disclosure version came out and everyone was nutting over that, but the stripped down version is so much more romantic and sweet. Yesterday, Sam Smith finally released his EP in the states and the first thing I did was add it to my Spotify. Here it is for all of you looking for something to listen to on this Wednesday!
Jay Z and Beyonce in Michael Costello – wow that dress is so close to some kind of a wardrobe malfunction or a slip? What would we call this?
