Featured Song: "Pearl’s Dream" by Bat For Lashes

Posted on: January 8th, 2011 by admin 2 Comments

I just had to share this song/video/artist with you all! Bat For Lashes is definitely inspired by Tori Amos, Bjork, and Kate Bush…I love the 80′s feel of song (and the album). I will have a more indepth review of Two Suns by Bat for Lashes soon.

Album of the Week: Youth Novel by Lykke Li

Posted on: January 6th, 2011 by admin 1 Comment

I haven’t heard such a good straight up pop album in a long time. I’m not a Lady Gaga fan really, I rarely listen to top 40 music, so if you expect me to write about that kind of music on my blog, you’d come to the wrong place. Lykke Li is a Swedish indie pop/alternative singer. There is something really unique about her voice, it has an innocent quality to it, much like the French yi yi singers of the 60′s, but well…er… Swedish. I know that probably doesn’t make sense, but seriously…just listen to Youth Novel. Also, I really dig her sense of style, I would totally rock her accessories and clothing if I had the money.
I know her album, Youth Novel, came out in 2008 so I’m behind the times, but who cares. Good music is good, no matter when it came out. Here’s hoping she releases a new one soon!
