bday_today_500_12-2

12pm
Literature: The Girl, The Gold Watch, And Everything (Their show at The Low Beat was awesome, like being in some indie, jangle-pop heaven I never knew existed.)

Lizzy Mercier Descloux: Fire (I love her dance moves!)
Ex Hex: Don’t Wanna Lose
Ariel Pink: Put Your Number In My Phone
Angel Olsen: Hi-Five
Damien Jurado: Silver Timothy
Sinkane: How We Be (This Song + Video = Shot of Adrenaline to Life)

Sylvan Esso: Coffee (I want this song to automatically come on when I’m in the car driving around any city late at night. I carry this album with me where ever I go.)
Deerhoof: Paradise Girls
Sean Rowe: Desiree
Strand Of Oaks: Goshen ‘97
St. Vincent: Digital Witness
Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks: Little Fang
Frankie Cosmos: Owen (This whole album is delightful.)
Fear Of Men: Green Sea
Warpaint: Disco//very (I can’t listen to this song just once, it’s gotta be at least two times in a row. And its perfect girl gang video is what really opened me up to the whole album.)

1pm
Jenny Lewis: Just One Of The Guys
Real Estate: Talking Backward
Bonnie “Prince” Billy: Night Noises
PHOX: Slow Motion
Temples: Keep In The Dark
Mac DeMarco: Passing Out Pieces
Mitski: First Love-Late Spring (Her album is already a classic. Kinda in the vein of Exile In Guyville. Yeah, I said that and I mean it! She’s definitely got something special going on, even The New York Times thinks so!)
José González: This Is How We Walk On The Moon (I really do like the original by Arthur Russell but this version adds some magic melancholy that makes it even more irresistible.
T.Rex: Cosmic Dancer (From 1971 but I only just heard it in November 2014. It came on while I was sitting in a sunbeam in Nashville and I had a few moments of crazy until I figured out who sang it so I could listen to it forever.)
Sylvan Esso: Hey Mami
Quilt: Eye of the Pearl
Sharon Van Etten: Every Time the Sun Comes Up
The Firs: Your White Dress (My most beautiful album of 2014. I can listen to it anytime and especially when I’d usually listen to Bon Iver’s “For Emma, Forever Ago”. A gem.)
Jessica Lea Mayfield: Standing in the Sun
