Here is my current obsession. I have been playing this tragic break-up tune on repeat for the past couple of weeks. I’m probably going wear it out soon, and I am pretty sure I’ve already ruined it for several of my friends. I don’t really care for all of the remixes and covers that have been floating around for this song. There is just something addictive about the original, and Kimbra’s short little bridge leading into the second chorus about gives me goosebumps every time. Well that’s enough from me, just watch the video and let me know what you think of my current favorite song.
Laura Marling has a new album coming out in September called A Creature I Don’t Know and she just released a pretty awesome new track and some tour dates for the fall.
September 17 – San Francisco, Calif. @ Bimbo’s 365 Club 18 – Los Angeles, Calif. @ Masonic Temple 20 – Los Angeles, Calif. @ Troubadour 22 – Chicago, Ill. @ Lincoln Hall 23 – Toronto, Ontario @ The Great Hall 24 – Montreal, Quebec @ Corona 25 – Boston, Mass. @ Brighton Music Hall 27 – Washington, D.C. @ Sixth & I Historic Synagogue 28 – New York, N.Y. @ Webster Hall
So Matt & Kim made a visit to Late Night w/ Jimmy Fallon last week and it was like insult to injury for they are coming nowhere near me. And the two cities they hit that would be doable both fall on busy weekends for me. But rather than sulk, I thought I would share their tour dates with all of you and encourage you to go by giving you a glimpse of how awesome their live show will be.

“Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster the People has been my jam all summer long. I loved the song the second I heard and for whatever reason I wasn’t compelled to go listen to the rest of the album, but rather I was completely content with just listening to that single obsessively. But just recently I decided to give the rest of the album a listen and I completely regret ignoring it for so long. Because I think my obsession new obsession with “Helena Beat” might be stronger than the previous one. And just recently they decided to release a completely bizarre video that makes me want to see them live even more.
Foster the People‘s debut album, Torches is out now and you can get for $10 on Amazon.
