Spinning // The Royal Concept

Now THIS is catchy.

… And I know. They sound very similar to Phoenix. I hear it too. It’s in the guitar riffs and definitely in the vocals. Even the rhythmic patterns of the lyrics. These guys were definitely influenced by one of my favorite bands, which is probably why I absolutely love them.

While we’re waiting for some new Phoenix jams, The Royal Concept will DEFINITELY do. Check out Gimme Twice below!

I’ve been a fan of Beach House since “Norway”. When that song came out, it became a part of the soundtrack to my summer. Just loved it. Anyway, since then, I’ve been a big fan. This video came out last week, but I’m still loving it. It’s my FAVORITE song off of their new album, and the video is a little trippy and really awesome. Take a look!

Video // Cameras – June

Happy Friday! Pretty obsessed with this song right now. The lyrics are haunting (as are the vocals) and, although simple, it’s quite the concept for the video. Check it out! Here’s June by Cameras.

Video // Strange Attractor

I discovered this gem on a blog this week and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head. The song is SO infectious. It’s an ear worm I’m pleased and happy to have. I’m so happy to bring you Animal Kingdom.

Animal Kingdom band

Animal Kingdom (UK) aren’t new to the music scene. They released their first album in 2009, but I unfortunately hadn’t heard of them till this month. They released their latest LP “The Looking Away” on May 8. Their video for the infectious single I was talking about above is just as good as the song itself. Simple, unexpected, and the attention to detail (the reflection in his eyes? You’ll see) is incredible. Take a look, and make sure to buy their album on iTunes.

Happy Friday!

Spinning // Reptar

I’ve got some fresh music to get your Monday started. This was my soundtrack to the weekend. Sunroof open, friends in the car, driving down Sunset all the way to the PCH, and right up to Malibu… THIS was the perfect soundtrack. I bring you REPTAR!

Named after that one dinosaur from the 90’s show Rugrats, Reptar absolutely kills it. They have a killer vibe. Don’t take my word for it. Take a listen for yourself! Their entire album, released on May 1, is streamable below. Just make sure to buy it on iTunes after you fall in love!

Video // “Older Together”

Happy Friday! I’m so ready for the weekend. This week has been crazy, and it’s time for some fun.

I’m leaving you with a music video by Black Light Dinner Party. I’ve known about these gems for awhile, but I just recently discovered their music video to one of my favorite songs of theirs. Enjoy “Older Together”! It’s kind of like falling in love.

Spinning // Beach House – Bloom

Beach House - Bloom

Baltimore natives Beach House just released their 4th album on Sub Pop.  At first, I wasn’t sure if I quite understood this duo, but upon a second listen I sort of fell in love. The dreamy pop album is the perfect album to listen to when the sunset sun hits your skin when you’re driving home after a long day of work. It’s the perfect album to listen to when the sun is rising, and you’re still awake with your best friends, drinking champagne and laughing about the previous nights events. It’s absolutely intoxicating.

You can buy Bloom on iTunes.

Check out my favorite track, Luzuli, after the jump!

Spinning // Now, Now

There is SO MUCH good music happening right now. Today, I’m bringing you Now, Now.

The band Now, Now

Coming straight from the Midwest in Minnesota, this enthralling band has been recently touring with The Naked + Famous, and is set to hit the road with fun. this spring. Their newest album, Threads, was released March 6 and has been getting some major buzz in the blogosphere. This isn’t anything new to them, however, as they toured with Paramore when they were known as “Now, Now Every Children”. Threads brings a more mature sound, more mature lyrics, and a more mature audience. Enjoy!

FOR FANS OF: Death Cab For Cutie, The Joy Formidable, Eisely, The Naked + Famous

Here’s the link to Threads on Spotify: Now, Now – Threads

Music Video // Drake ft. Rihanna – Take Care

I’ve been playing this song for months. Jamie xx produced an absolutely incredible piece of music for Drake, and the video is just as gorgeous. Check out the just released music video for “Take Care” below!

Does the video do the song justice? I think so!
