Twin Shadow

I’ve posted about Twin Shadow A LOT and for good reason – his music is just so damn cool. He’s one of those few artists with a vast collection of songs that I like – not just one or two singles. I highly recommend listening to his recent album, Caer, and then moving on to his 2015 gem Eclipse. Standouts from Caer for me include: “Brace (f/ Rainsford),” “Saturdays (f/ HAIM),” “Littlest Things,” and “Runaway.”

Twin Shadow f/ HAIM “Saturdays”

These two artists are fantastic on their own so I knew I’d love this song before pressing play. “Saturdays” is a song that basically dares you NOT to bop your head along to the beat. Try it. It’s impossible.

HAIM “If I Could Change Your Mind”

Yup. I officially wish I was in a band. Preferably this one. 

My Favorite Music Videos of 2013

As someone who watches music videos for a living, here are my picks for the best 2013 had to offer. Top honors would probably go to Bell X1 or Young Galaxy. Weirdly beautiful stuff.

Young Galaxy “Pretty Boy”

Charli XCX “Superlove”

HAIM “The Wire”

Bell X1 “Careful What You Wish For”

Mumford & Sons “Hopeless Wanderer”

Kodaline “All I Want” (Part 2)

The 1975 “Girls”

Olafur Arnalds “Old Skin”

HAIM “The Wire” (Music Video)

 

Brilliant video. The actors in this clip do a hilarious job of portraying three newly dumped, heart-broken men.

HAIM “Strong Enough” (Sheryl Crow Cover)

Back to back HAIM posts=this band rocks.

Here, the ladies totally kick-ass on my favorite Sheryl Crow song.

Happy Friday!

Haim “The Wire”

I’m 95% sure I heard this song performed live when I got the chance to check out these talented ladies a few months ago at a work event. It sounds super familiar. HAIM continues to make fun, rock music with pop sensibilities. Their songs remind me of being young, strong and not really giving a f**k about anyone that doesn’t add anything positive to my life. Love it.

Haim. 2.12.13.

So I’ve been a fan of Haim since I heard their song “Better Off” on Soundcloud. And then I saw their super fun, youthful video for “Forever”. And after that I heard the awesome trumpets in “Send Me Down”, a personal favorite. Today, I was fortunate enough to see Haim perform 4 songs live. It was an office performance for my company. I was happy when I heard they were coming because I tried to get tix to their show with Ben Howard and Mumford & Sons tonight but yeah that failed. I’m sure that show will be the best show I’ve never been to. Ugh, still kind of sad about it.

Anyways, the ladies of Haim totally impressed me. I knew they’d be great but they were better than that. Very personable, funny, and kick ass musicians. Excited about their debut album which I believe comes out around spring/summer. Yay for girl power!
