Track of the Day: Northern Lights by Kate Boy

My obsession with Swedish¬†music is apparently continuing into 2015, this time with Kate Boy. ¬†Though the lead singer is an Ausssie (and freaking GORGEOUS), the rest of the band hails from Stockholm. ¬†They recently played¬†SXSW and even got a “best of” mention from Spin.com. ¬†They are electro-pop at its finest with shades of New Order and Depeche Mode and I am really digging them. ¬†If … Continue reading Track of the Day: Northern Lights by Kate Boy

Track of the Day Flashback Friday Edition: Kick by INXS

I had some time to kill with my Netflix lately and stumbled upon “Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of INXS”, a made for Australian TV mini series. I found it fascinating and it reminded me exactly how great a band INXS was and how much I loved their music. ¬†I grew up in the 80s, so of course I know every word of … Continue reading Track of the Day Flashback Friday Edition: Kick by INXS

Track of the Day: Hollow Moon by Awolnation

This song has been out for awhile now and it is a pretty decent song and certainly worth hearing. But it is the track of the day because IT IS DRIVING ME CRAZY. ¬†The main refrain, starting at :52, reminds me of SOME SONG but I can’t place it. ¬†I have asked a few musically minded friends and they all agree that it DOES sound … Continue reading Track of the Day: Hollow Moon by Awolnation

Episode Recap: Justified: Dark as a Dungeon (S6, Ep 8)

The first few episodes of this season seemed like things were hurtling towards something dramatic but lately things have slowed down and the plan settles into place. ¬†I am assuming motivated by his talk with Winona and commitment to be a family with her, we start this episode as Raylan is going through his father’s house, cleaning it out, burning pictures and papers and even … Continue reading Episode Recap: Justified: Dark as a Dungeon (S6, Ep 8)

Track of the Day: Black Mambo by Glass Animals

Let’s celebrate Hump Day with a¬†sexy little song from Glass Animals. ¬†This little English Indie band is relatively new, releasing their first album in June of 2014. ¬†Their music is sexy and smooth and something about the chillness of it puts me in a good mood, which is much needed this week. ¬† ¬†And while some songs might make you bob your head, ¬†this one … Continue reading Track of the Day: Black Mambo by Glass Animals

Episode Recap: Justified – The Hunt (S6 Ep7)

After Limehouse told Boyd that Ava was lying to¬†him, we knew something was going to happen, and happen it did. ¬†Boyd takes Ava on a “vacation” up to his family cabin in the woods. ¬†When they get there the subject of marriage comes up and that Ava thought her first husband was nice and normal and he snapped and got crazy violent after marriage. ¬†Will … Continue reading Episode Recap: Justified – The Hunt (S6 Ep7)

Eargasm of the Week: “Hold Me Closer” by LANKS

LANKS is one of those artists that manages to take¬†sounds that might not¬†individually appeal¬†to one’s ears but once he combines them all together, it is a euphoric melody to the ear. I sort of imagine him in brightly lit scientific lab but instead of smoke billowing from test tubes, it’s a drum heart beat here, a distorted wailing noise there, and¬†the sound of electricity over … Continue reading Eargasm of the Week: “Hold Me Closer” by LANKS

Track of the Day: “Ex’s and Oh’s” by Elle King

I am loving this song and cannot listen to it without bopping my head and rocking my entire body. It‚Äôs funky, bluesy, country and rockabilly all in one. ¬†The daughter of comedian/actor Rob Schneider, Elle just released her first album Love Stuff on February 17.¬†¬† I have been listening to the entire thing on repeat all day and dig it all. ELLE KING: FACEBOOK | … Continue reading Track of the Day: “Ex’s and Oh’s” by Elle King

Episode Recap: Justified: Alive Day (S6, Ep6)

When we left Harlan last week, Raylan and Ava had just kissed. ¬†This episode starts right after that moment, with Boyd coming home, clearly feeling a vibe that something was happening. ¬†Both Ava and Raylan play it off that Raylan was just there to ask questions about Boyd, but you can tell his Justified Spidey Sense is tingling. ¬†When he leaves with Ava’s uncle the … Continue reading Episode Recap: Justified: Alive Day (S6, Ep6)
