Hello lovelies!!! It seems like just yesterday I blogged about my January music favorites for two reasons:
1. I was late and I posted them in February. I'm sorry.
2. February is short.
If this is the first time you've read one of my monthly music review thingies, welcome!!! I believe in music reviews only if a) they are positive or b) they are about Miley Cyrus or Justin Bieber. There, I said it. Please don't hurt me.
My five favorite/most listened songs this month:
1. California - The Kooks
I'm pretty sure this has been on one of my past monthly music posts, but I have a good reason!!! For like two years now I've been saying "Whenever The Kooks come back to LA I'm going to see them. I don't care what the circumstances are." Welp, they're coming on March 10th and I'm dying because I only got one ticket which means I am going completely alone but I will do anything to see The Kooks and OH GOD SAVE ME. To calm my pre-concert nerves I'm listening to this song 24/7. I don't even know why. I just get anxious thinking about me, mid-sob, singing every word very loudly in the middle of a crowd of strangers at The Troubadour.
2. What a Shame - The Strypes
This band, with ages ranging from 16 to 18, makes me feel bad that I'm sitting in my room with loads of half-written songs and no following whatsoever. I heard this song on the radio and it's really good, I promise. Like a younger Arctic Monkeys meets - well, I don't know.
3. Coming of Age - Foster The People
Not gonna lie, at first I listened to this song because it reminded mw of Come Of Age, the amazing second album from one of my favorite bands, The Vaccines. Still, it did not disappoint - the song is extremely catchy and shows the maturation of Foster The People. I cannot wait to see them at Coachella in April!!!
2. Broken - Jake Bugg
I saw Jake Bugg live about a month ago with my friend, and this is my favorite song both recorded and in concert. It just has so much emotion, but is so simple at the same time. And his voice, oh man... his voice.
1. The Moon Song - Karen O. & Ezra Koenig
Let me just start off with this statement: this song is not what I would expect from the frontwoman of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Ezra Koenig, twitter extraordinaire and frontman of Vampire Weekend. I don't know much about Yeah Yeah Yeahs so I don't really have a place to say that... but basically, I did not know Ezra could be this serious. The song, from the Her film soundtrack, is truly beautiful. I just want to lay on the moon and have it play in the background.
Hello lovelies! I couldn't think of what to post today, so I settled on a little update about my life??
Starting with today: I'm so sad. It rained all last night and was supposed to continue for three days, but when I woke up this morning, the sky was perfectly clear. We've been robbed of winter here in LA.
I was even wearing my big fuzzy Topshop coat today!
I tried to make a mix CD for my friend, but my computer is old and when I burn CDs they never work. So sad.
In better news, my Coachella tickets are coming!!!! I literally cannot wait. Coachella is going to be fabulous this year, and since it's my 2nd year going, I'll know more useful tips to get around. I'll be posting about it starting in March, don't worry :)
