FIVE SONGS THAT I OBSESSED OVER THIS WEEK (06.24.11)
Quite a few great songs found their way to my ears this week. I’m limiting myself to five smaller favorites that I wanted to highlight as opposed to the obvious choices like the new Radiohead song or the Bon Iver cover of Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” (that one in particular does not need highlighting considering my original post has 7,000 notes at the moment). I can’t pick a favorite out of the five that I’m highlighting, so I’m just going to post them and let you choose.

Burning Hearts - Into the Wilderness // Just a great track that feels like vintage dream pop from the late 80’s, early 90’s. It reminds me of so many great songs from that era. I’ll be listening to this for a while to come.
Washed Out - A Dedication // The first really emotionally charged track that I’ve heard from Washed Out is a beautiful, sad lullaby. I could play this track on repeat for hours.
Tammar - The Last Line // A killer jam with a driving post-punk guitar and soaring vocals. I absolutely fucking love this track.
Bombay Bicycle Club - Shuffle // An upbeat blast of indie pop that just get’s lodged in your brain and doesn’t want to let go. Catchy summer fun.
Richard Buckner - Escape // A welcome return of an old favorite singer-songwriter who never fails to blow me away. His stripped back, acoustic sound is raw and emotional and quite often, downright gorgeous.
There you have it. Five songs that I’ve been spinning all week long and loving with every listen. Thanks for listening. I hope you all like some or all of these as well. Enjoy!
