Weekly Music: Heatwave Worthy

September 4th, 2013

Have I complained yet about how unbearably hot it is here in LA right now? It’s hard to function! Here are some heat wave appropriate tunes I’ve been into lately:

Two Big Black Delta songs as I love this album so much and these songs are my favorite – and very different from each other. The dancetastic “Huggin & Kissin” and the mellow, sweet jam “Love You This Summer”.

Braids “Hossack”. This album goes on for a little too long, but a few songs are really fantastic, like this one.

The newest Au Revoir Simone single, “Crazy”. I kind of expected the new album to go more in the direction of Erika’s solo album, but this single makes me I think I was wrong!

Not very new, but I just discovered this excellent Poolside cover of my favorite Neil Young song, “Harvest Moon”.

    We are musical soulmates. Also living in LA, and it is stupid hot. Why does it decide to get to lava-like temperatures when everywhere else is starting to cool down and move into sweater weather?

    I know, right?? I guess it’s our trade off for non-existent winters?

    A lil shy to say I’ve never heard Harvest Moon before, but this cover is SO GOOD! Gonna check Poolside out too.

    I’ll control my “whaaaaa???” and you can just go watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2MtEsrcTTs :) It’s a newer Neil Young song released in the 90s, so I guess it’s not quite as popular as his older songs.

    Loving the Harvest Moon cover! It’s raining cats and dogs in Paris right now and it goes perfectly with the mood…

    Have you listened to the new Janelle Monae album yet? It’s bananas great. Maybe a little more R&B/pop than you’ve been posting recently, but some serious female soul and great messaging and Totally Addictive dance party action.
