Turn Away - Beck

I’m getting on a plane and flying away to far-off lands.

Bye for a little while.

Bound (Kanye West Cover) - Laura Welsh

Today’s theme is saudade, a concept with no direct translation into English, one that describes a vague and constant desire for something that does not and probably cannot exist, for something other than the present, a turning towards the past or towards the future; not an active discontent or poignant sadness but an indolent dreaming wistfulness.

Can’t Do Without You (Tale of Us & Mano Le Tough Remix) - Caribou

This is such a beautiful remix. It can fill you with euphoria just as easily as it can fill you with grief. You can dance to it. You can fuck to it. You can drive to it. You can write to it. It’s good for almost any occasion.

Houdini (RAC Remix) - Foster The People

I love a remix that’s better than the original.

Classic (RAC Remix) - The Knocks

Fuck the DMCA, fuck the RIAA, and especially fuck the IFPI.

I don’t blame Tumblr for being forced to act on behalf of a bunch of sniveling record industry lawyers, but holy fucking hell, when will those short-sighted assholes ever learn?

Tumblr isn’t where we come to steal music. It’s where we come to share music. It’s the place where we discover artists and hear songs for the fist time. This is the place where we get the word out. It’s the white hot center of cool new shit, and if it becomes poisoned by takedown notices and arbitrary account terminations, then ultimately it’s going to be the artists who suffer.

In the meantime, we’ll all be pissed, Tumblr will be fucked, and the world will still be full of weasels who aren’t willing to pay 99 cents for a fucking song.

Take Me To Church - Hozier

I love a song that invokes religious imagery to describe good sex.

All The Rage Back Home - Interpol

Good god damn and sexy Jesus, Interpol is back. The sound of this band will always take me to dark and sticky places. I can still smell the wax, and I can still feel the rope on my wrists.

Summer In The City (Starcadian Remix) - Freedom Fry

I like this little tune. It’s from the How The Sun Sees You video.

Kush & Corinthians - Kendrick Lamar

Tonight’s getting ready music.

*74

Madora - Beverly

This track is throwing off some serious 90s girl band vibes.

Disappointed - Public Image Ltd.

This month can go fuck itself.

Running (Hiding Version) - Computer Magic

I just want it to be the weekend already.

High For This - The Weeknd

For when it’s raining at night in Los Angeles, and you can’t decide if you wanna invite someone over.
