♬ Spoon – The Way We Get By

If you haven’t checked out this Showtime original yet, you should take a peek at the series’ pilot and get addicted. Besides the supercool co-stars William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum, the show features some great music, like this teasers’ Spoon. And while you’ve probably heard this song before, did you know that Britt Daniel, the vocals and lead guitarist, is a dj himself? Check this out…

Ever since my first post, Lana del Rey has been a weekly (if not daily) searched artist here on the site. Here’s a new one by the hypnotic chanteuse, enjoy!

♬ Lana del Rey – Off to the Races

A cross between Florence, Ellie, and maybe Leona Lewis, the newby 22-year-old Loui Rose Allen, or ‘Foxes’, released this peppy, go-get-em song that really turns around any sour mood. No matter the thousands of dreams you may carry close to heart without near sight of realization, she’ll convince you nothing’s inconceivable. Her first single, “Home,” is just as lovely, even at its slower tempo!

★ Foxes – Youth
♬ Foxes – Home

So get up and dance! You’re young, no matter your years.

♬ Fareoh – Right On Time (Original Mix with “Move for Me” Kaskade Vocals)

♬ Coeur de Pirate – Adieu

This fille is so freakin’ talented. Ever since “Comme des Enfants” snuck its way into the Etats-Unis last year to reach top Billboard fame, Mademoiselle Béatrice Martin’s popularity has only grown and grown, reaching huge recognition for an artist most probably can’t understand. It’s her soft, sweet voice, hiding the bite of her strong lyrics, that just forces your attention. Not that her infectiously-smiling, beautiful French face doesn’t help keep her in your head.. You can’t really tell if she’s a naïve little girl, or a completely self-aware femme…a mysterious allure at which the French are masters. Though I suppose this video settles that question! Can’t wait for her gorgeous voice to reignite the airwaves again some more. Ecoutes-bien!

There’s no concrete explanation, but I’m a hardcore francophile; love the language, the food, the music, even the people and their funny mannerisms. So I always tear up feel the need to share whenever I discover another beautiful capture of my favorite city…Paris.

In this short film (part of a series of seven I highly recommend continuing), the first gorgeous thirty seconds focus primarily on Sacré Coeur, from a view almost identical to the one I had from my French host family’s apartment while I lived there in Paris. Shot by two self-proclaimed ‘novice’ kids who spontaneously dropped into Paris to shoot without any sort of formal goal or direction, the work they achieved is, well, pretty unbelievable till you see it. Ah, mes souvenirs…

Unfortunately, the one thing the clip lacks is actual french music! If you happen to speak french or enjoy foreign music, then try these on for size..

Penguin PrisonPenguin Prison – Don’t Fuck With My Money

Always loved Penguin Prison; clean sound, fresh beats, uppity tunes. Now I love ’em even more. What a sweet tune, and the perfect timing for its release! Another favorite, dj Jakwob (UK’s James Jacob), recently dropped this sweet Penguin Prison remix, perhaps you’ll fancy a listen.

Another HBO show, Enlightened, aired a fantastic episode this past Monday at 9:30pm, featuring the powerful but light harmonies of Ingrid Michaelson during the ending sequences…


♬ Ingrid Michaelson – All Love

Laura Dern’s starring, co-writing, producing, directing… dang, what can’t she do?! Enlightened centers on the mixed-up life of Amy Jellicoe, who, after a very public breakdown, loses her stressful job as a business executive, but is reawakened to the ‘greater purposes of life’ after a stint in a psych rehabilitation. Sometimes cliché, sometimes profound; the show is always intriguing. Suppose it helps Luke Wilson hunkily co-stars as her (semi-)ex-husband.. Tune in sometime!

Bored to Death just kills me. Midway through season three, Jason Schwartzman is (still) a bumblingly-inexperienced, unlicensed detective, offering via Craig’s List to ‘solve people’s problems’. He’s accompanied by a motley crue of Zach Galifianakis, a pipe-smoking, penis-drawing cartoonist father of a sperm donor baby (and whose girlfriend is the ditz girl from Miss Congeniality; hilarious to see her again), and sidekicked by Ted Danson, for whom there are…no words… (only laughter). These three get in some of the most ridiculously amusing adventures as they admirably fight crime throughout Williamsburg and the surrounding burroughs.


♬ Matt Duncan – One Thousand Boys

What particularly made me wanna write about ’em was that they feature great music, like the song used in the fadeout during the end of this recently-aired clip; it’s by a small Kentucky band led by Matt Duncan that I never would’ve found in a million years. Tune in tonight, new episodes air Mondays at 9pm on HBO. For now, here’s another tune by the 6-boy band:

♬ Matt Duncan – Beacon

The weather’s bizarrely nice, so I took the opportunity to do quick some yoga outside, and pretend I was at the beach… eff mondays.
