★ Sam Smith – I’m Not The Only One

Maybe you’re loved, maybe you’re searching, maybe you’re recovering–but we all love Sam Smith. “I’m Not the Only One” hit the high-charts after a video featuring two of TV’s faves, Glee‘s Dianna Agron and The Mindy Project‘s Chris Messina. His two-night stint this past weekend in the city sold out in minutes. Not bad at age 22…!

the happiest song since Happy

★ The Cinematic Orchestra – To Build A Home

The Cinematic Orchestra has been making music since the late 90s, based on a strong foundation of catchy melodies played (seemingly) by a grand orchestra, and topped with delicately stimulating vocals. Good stuff.

♬ Duke Dumont – I Got U (feat. Jax Jones)
♬ Duke Dumont – I Got U ft. Jax Jones (Bondax Remix)

There is just something so infectiously happy and warm about hit Brit Duke Dumont (né Adam Dyment), and it’s not just the superfun virtual safari he goes on in his video. The fellow Brits of Bondax heard it too, and quickly produced this glorious remix, somehow even more upbeat…! So don’t pout just because you’re not in Miami dancing to the best DJs in the world under a gloriously hot sun and are instead locked up high in your city tower while the coast is smacked by a rainstorm…

Ok, you can pout a little.

♬ Coldplay – Midnight
★ Coldplay – Midnight (Urban Contact Remix)

I will never forget the first music video I saw on MTV. I was standing in our family room, ready to give up on whatever was on, ’til the soft strokes of “The Scientist” suddenly rang forth persistently from the set. Chris Martin had appeared, walking in reverse, traversing the stage of some faraway land, and my love for Coldplay became solidified in those four-odd minutes.

It has yet to abate, especially with this latest, a Bon Hiver-esque, smoky nighttime song released as a preview for their May album. I waited out the first week in hopes of a masterful rework to spring up, and it is Urban Contact I found success: an Adrian Lux type synth and sharp snare beat. Killin’ it.
