Playing On Repeat: It’s About Time

“All the years of paradise, paradigms, paralyze us.  You’re crazy.  All the cards you’ve organized, shuffled twice in front of my eyes, Everyone has needs, wants, a cold gun.  Lights low, go on baby go.  It’s a bad time, I’m on a tightrope.” -Young The Giant, It’s About Time This is the first single off […]

Playing On Repeat: Yeah Yeah Yeahs

“Fallen for a guy, Fell down from the sky.  Halo round his head, Feathers in a bed, In our bed, in our bed…  It’s sacrilege, sacrilege, sacrilege you say” -Yeah Yeah Yeahs, “Sacrilege” The best part of a song is the build up.  This song is one long build up.  Karen O’s voice is piercing […]

Playing On Repeat: Broken Bells

“Girl take a seat, rest your weary bones.  Your secret’s safe in my hands.  Tell me about the years and let me buy an hour.  Maybe help me to understand.  Ain’t nobody calling, ain’t nobody home.  What a lovely day to be lonely….” -Broken Bells, Holding On For Life Something old, something new….  that’s what […]

Playing On Repeat: Heartbroken In Disrepair

“Searching for life, gasping for air… Heartbroken, in disrepair” -Dan Auerbach, Keep It Hid So, this one’s far from new.  This is a song off of Dan Auerbach’s  (singer, guitar player from The Black Keys) 2009 solo album, Keep It Hid.  While I love his soulful bluesy voice, this song’s all about the guitar.  It’s […]

Playing On Repeat: Sleigh Bells

“Are you telling lies with you pretty eyes, You’re in trouble yeah, you don’t get me twice” -Sleigh Bells, You Don’t Get Me Twice I love a good kiss-off song.  And this one may be responsible for damaging my eardrums this past week….  A danceable beat, fuzzy guitar reminiscent of Lenny Kravitz’s version of “American […]

The Break Up Letter

“Staring at empty pages, Centered ’round the same old plot, Staring at empty pages, Flowing along the ages” -Traffic, Empty Pages I’m breaking up with you. This isn’t easy for me. You’ve been a part of my life for so many years, most of my adult life. But the thing is- you’ve changed. You’re not who […]

Playing On Repeat: MS MR

“Welcome to the inner workings of my mind…” -MS MR, Hurricane If you frequent Alt Nation on Sirius Radio, you’ve probably heard this haunting tune.  This NY based duo (Max Hershenow and Lizzy Plapinger)  originally released Hurricane as a single in July 2012, then included it on their debut Album on May 13, 2013. Ominous […]

Playing On Repeat: Heavy English

“Cause there’s this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow.  And I play it on repeat. ‘Til I fall asleep.  Spilling drinks on my settee.” -Arctic Monkeys, Do I Wanna Know? There’s nothing more exciting to me than discovering new music.  Sometimes the music I “discover” isn’t even new, but it’s new […]

Listen To It Loud: Arctic Monkeys: AM

“I guess what I’m trying to say is I need the deep-end, keep imagining meeting, wished away entire lifetimes, unfair we’re not somewhere misbehaving for days” -R U Mine, Arctic Monkeys Bad. Ass.  Sums it up, the new Arctic Monkeys album released last week.  I was expecting to be non-plussed.  I just couldn’t get into […]
