How about a little Neon Trees, Of Montreal, Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver), Razorlight, and last but not least - Jeff Buckley. Un, deux, trois, viola!

Shout out to the theme song from HBO's 'How To Make it in America.' Nothing not to like here. If I had a Range Rover and a blunt, I'd blast this song while driving over the Brooklyn Bridge. Could be any bridge for that matter.

(the new palms on bond street....not)

LAST CHRISTMAS, I GAVE YOU MY HEART

An amazing cover, this Wham! original (shout out to George Michael) has been covered many times over, but in this case, British outfit Florence + The Machine has a go at it. Download her album and stay tuned for some old studio material from Phoenix.

JJ.


JJ appeared out of nowhere via my velveteen antennas. Swedish duo. New album is insane for 2010. It's nothing less than hypnotizing. I'm offering one track at a time, because each deserves at least a day or a week of appreciation. Be patient and this could be your new favorite record.

"I REALLY FUCKED IT UP THIS TIME"

A new band I've been listening to - Mumford Sons. Pretty interesting, you may want to grab the whole album. Amazing chorus on this track. English indie folk band from Londontown.

I know, my reviews are lame. I'm just not that critical or analytical or nerdy about music, my apologies. If I enjoy it, I love sharing it. So that's that.

HERE COMES THE PUERTO RICAN BRIDE


Thanks to Bryan and Sharon, I'll be chillin on the beach in Puerto Rico in t minus 10 days. Aside from being half retarded, Sharon has also been quite the busy bride-to-be. So busy that it took her until TODAY to pop her velveteen cherry. Based on her last bbm, it's safe to assume she's rather excited about the discovery. I decided to put her in the spotlight for this post, because I know she's having trouble sleeping on account of her Puerto Rican debut next weekend.

I'm also including a Feist song that is old but dope. If you haven't heard it, prepare to fall in love. Everything about it is pretty magical. As magical as the 'all white' outfits every one of Bryan + Sharon's guests will be forced to rock come next week's chuppah.

Enjoy, and see you in Puerto Rico putos!!!
