Diary post: The War On Drugs. Got to see these guys live this week and dang I love them. Such a great show to just zone out and get lost in the music. ▶ ☐ Music Video: The War On Drugs “Under The Pressure”. Not that consequential but a just solid set of visuals that fit well to the opener of one of my favorite albums of the year, “Lost In The Dream.” If you’re not into it yet, you’ve been missing out.
▶TV on the Radio “Careful You”. So stoked on this record. // ☐ by Sheng Yao
▶Mansionair “Hold Me Down”. Something of a Rhye + The xx sound. Good gloomy-day swank vibe. // ☐ by Harold Feinstein
So long summer…
▶Deptford Goth “Two Hearts”. Romantic songs usually have to be super simple to avoid being cheesy, but I love the background touches here. Original masterpiece. // ☐ by Vivian Maier
▶Chad Valley “Younger Hunger”. Not new, still rad. Such a feel-good album for me. // ☐ unknown
▶JAWS “Gold”. Loving this whole album, with it’s emotional and somehow nostalgic vibe. // ☐ Pretty sure the art is by Francesco Mangiaracina, and the photo by Elena Marin-Yaseli
