Song Of The Week #52

Ooh. This is good. Thisisgoodthisisgoodthisisgood.

Something About Us – Dr Fresch

Something About Us

With all the hype surrounding Daft Punk’s new album coming out, people seem to be dropping the remixes left and right. But with this particular one I’m definitely not complaining.

I’m just loving the overall chill summer vibe of this tune. Already I can imagine myself getting home, kicking off my shoes, sitting down on my couch, grabbing some kind of ice cold beverage and sipping the night away – all the while having this playing on the speakers in the background.

Yeah, I think I’ll do just that.

Something about us is a cover of the Daft Punk song, which appeared on their second album Discovery.

Enjoy!

Song Of The Week #51

Quite recently I managed to catch a showing of The Great Gatsby in cinemas, and must say the soundtrack did not disappoint.

Together – The xx

The Great Gatsby

Apparently Baz Luhrmann and his right-hand music man Anton Monsted have been massive fans of the xx for a while now.When Luhrmann and Monsted approached them regarding some musical contribution, they were completely fine with using a song out of the band’s (at the time) new album – and then they were pleasantly surprised to find the xx throw them this pretty tune out of nowhere.

As stated by Monsted, they were so happy with the tune it’s basically “peppered throughout the fabric of the underscore.”

Together is the tenth track on the soundtrack album to Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby.

Enjoy!

Song Of The Week #50

This one should be  familiar to anyone who follows AMC’s the Walking Dead.

Civilian – Wye Oak

Civilian

More specifically, anyone who’s seen “Triggerfinger”, Episode 9, Season 2.

You can say what you want about a lot of TV series, but one undeniable fact is that most of the time they are a great source for music – just look at The O.C, How To Make It In America, Scrubs and Chuck. At any rate, series are no doubt one of my personal favourite ways of discovering music, next to google searches gone wrong and mistaken clicks on strange links.

Wye Oak are an indie folk rock duo from the US.

Civilian is the fifth track to their debut album of the same name.

Enjoy!
