Songs for your iPod

Parallax is the third studio album from Bradford Cox’s solo project Atlas Sound. Cox is best known from the band Deerhunter. I also liked the song Doldrums, but couldn’t find a stream. Lightworks is a pretty good track too)

Te Amo – Atlas Sound

Its Own Sun – 13 & God

(Enjoyed the Radiohead-esque sound, thanks for recommending, Eric, at The Warning Sign)

Listeners, any thoughts on the music? I’m done with sharing 2011 tracks for the time being, and will be posting 2012 music the next few weeks!

3 female singers, my favorite track from each album. All from 2011. Enjoy!

Halftime – Amy Winehouse

(Has a 70s vibe. Album was released after her death, and this track I think really was a hidden treasure )

https://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Ftracks%2F31710275 Halftime by BubblyMe

(Fun lyrics, she even mentions commenters on the internet, made me smile)

I – Nicola Roberts

You Were On Fire – Keren Ann

(Sounds kind of like a James Bond theme song, maybe she is up for it next?)

Tell me what you thought of the music in the comments!

Songs for your iPod

Don’t F**k with My Money – Penguin Prison

(2011 pop song I’m currently listening to a lot)

Spirits – Jamie Woon

(Love the video, and for me one of Jamie Woon’s most uplifting tracks, I previously shared Night Air, which is very atmospheric)

Wu Tang Clan – Allo Darlin

(An obscure B-side from last summer that deserves more attention. Reminds me of Kaki King’s acoustic tracks on her 2010 album Junior. To buy the song, go here)

AT2 – Araab Muzik

(From 2011 album Electronic Dream. My favourite by these guys, and that image is cooler than cool, way better for me than the album artwork. The uploader on youtube has an excellent understanding of visuals)

Los días raros – Vetusta Morla

(Ok, so I don’t post enough foreign language music, no idea what she is singing about, nevertheless still a powerful tune from last year, and powerful images in below homemade video)

Rockets – Moby (instrumental version)

(Most people pretty much agree on that Moby’s 2011 album was not his finest hour, in fact the only track I enjoyed was this instrumental tune not even on the actual cd)

Comin’ Down – Korallreven

(The first two minutes didn’t grab me, the remaining 7 min of the track I found to be hypnotic in a tranquil and peaceful way. My go-to song on their 2011 LP)

Who would have thought I would get into rap & hip-hop in 2011, go figure. I’ll go back to my normal ways next weekend, promise.

The Vent – Big K.R.I.T

Became – Atmosphere

Growing Pains – Grieves

(Boogie Man is also pretty good from the same album)
