I’m feeling rather magnanamous today, so I thought I’d spare everyone the arduous task of reading this. Just listen. These are songs that have found their way into my head recently, and if you’re not careful they’ll find a way into your consciousness as well.
The Arcade Fire: We Used to Wait
From the new album ‘The Suburbs’. Highly recommended. Head and shoulders above their previous stuff IMO.
Modest Mouse: Bury me With It
The Gaslamp Killer: Sitar Ride (recommended by Shikha, acclaimed music aficionado)
Kanye West, Bon Iver, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Jay-Z: Monster
Kanye West is an annoying megalomaniac, but it’s hard to deny that he knows how to put a song or two together. Nicki Minaj’s performance, however, is by far the most impressive.
Horse Feathers: In Our Blood
