Weekly Music

Listening to all the Ane Brun songs I can get my paws on this morning. Somehow I've never heard of this Norwegian goddess before. The video for "Directions" is giving me major Robyn vibes ala "Call Your Girlfriend". Spotify doesn't have all her albums but I love the Sketches album, which appears to be super stripped down folk versions of her songs. Stripped down version of the first video below. Even more haunting.

I love this Chemical Brothers song "Born In The Echoes" off their new album of the same name, featuring Cate Le Bon. I'm not super crazy about the whole album, it's a little intense and perhaps the one whirl I gave it while working wasn't the best setting, but I LOVE this song.

Also, for those of you who use Spotify, have you listened to the Discover Weekly playlist they give you every week? A lot of people haven't even noticed it there, but it's a new feature that hangs out at the top of your playlists: a playlist generated with songs you may like based on what you listen to. It's like iTune's old genius feature. If you share your account with someone else or play a lot of crowd pleasers around other people it may not be full of total gems, but even though I share my account with Will - who sometimes plays rap and metal at work I'd never listen to - I still found a lot of great stuff I'd never heard before. Give a go!

A few new good songs to send you into the weekend!

Mac Demarco - "Another One" (yes, this is the weirdest music video you'll see in a while). Gives me major Cass McCombs vibes and I ain't mad.

Superhumanoids "Anxious in Venice". I'd really like to be somewhere dancing and for this song to come on. 

Wilco "Cold Slope". Still determining my favorite song on the new album, but this is for sure up there.

Have a great weekend! If you're in a fellow part of the world burning hot, well, stay cool.
