I’m so excited to see new material from Cafe Tacvba. The album was actually released last year, but it’s new to me. These guys rock!
The Bath (by Youth Lagoon)
I couldn’t find this on Soundcloud, so Grooveshark to the rescue.
I found this track off YL’s new album, Wondrous Bughouse. I love YL’s dreamy, ambient sound. It’s very deep. Trevor Powers, AKA Youth Lagoon, explains:
“Youth Lagoon is something so personal to me because writing music is how I sort my thoughts, as well as where I transfer my fears”
Harlem Shake (by Baauer)
Sorry, I couldn’t resist. Aside from it being used for the viral Harlem Shake meme, it’s a pretty cool song to jam out to.
Below, I embedded my favorite version of said meme comin’ to you straight outta Clark Retirement Community. Enjoy.
Con los terroristas!

The Suburbs (By Mr. Little Jeans)
I love this cover of Arcade Fire’s “The Suburbs” even more so than the original version.
I have created a “set” called Sausage McMuffin on Soundcloud which includes the latest music featured on my blog.

Clouds (by Deep Time)
The Austin, TX based duo of vocalist Jennifer Moore and drummer Adam Jones have gained popularity following the release of their self-titled album this past summer and a European tour.
Deep Time will be performing live at Fall Back Records in McAllen, TX on January 18th.

Heaven (by The Walkmen)
I’m enjoying this nice little feel-good song I discovered last week. :-)

My Top Music of 2012
I listen to music every day. I will even listen to it while I watch TV. I’m weird like that. Anyway, I log what I listen to and then tally total listens over a year. This is much more relevant to me than those top 40 lists compiled by MTV, Billboard, and the like. So here are my top 20 music lists for 2012.
This year saw the emergence of several great new artists on the scene. Grimes, Bon Iver, Tame Impala, and Grizzly Bear were all new to me this year and I expect to hear much more from them in the future.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs tops my list this year although they haven’t released anything new since 2009. I basically listened to some of their songs I had previously neglected. They’re a great band and I can’t wait for them to release a new album.
That’s it until next year.
With Les Misérables premiering in a few weeks, long lost memories of middle-school chorus are resurfacing. Specifically, the songs of Le Mis I was forced to learn. This one was my favorite, and the one I remember most.
