I know I might as well share my youtube or deezer playlist in here but what’s the fun in that? It was a bit of a surprise when Beck won album of the year few years ago but this guy is genius.
One of those bands that I love saying the name of. I’ve loved their stuff in the past like What you know and this is awesome. And I caught the move “The Edge of Seventeen” a week ago and it was pretty cool that this was featured. Love the vibe.
I know I’m so so ashamed. Because:
a)I’m taking so long to revisit this.
b) I discovered X Ambassadors a little over 6 months ago along with Jamie Commons. And coincidentally found Ray Donovan through it although it was the other way around for most people.
They have an insane bunch of songs. Actually, every song is pretty awesome. But here’s a few that I absolutely love! Sam Harris has one of the purest voices I’ve EVER heard.
There’s a version with A$ap Ferg. It’s not bad, but I’d avoid it if I were you.
They’re geniuses or what?!
By all means, ignore the video.
Always ignore the video of a song unless it’s Michael Jackson or the Foos.
Because music is meant to be heard.
I’ve always loved Toad the Wet sprocket, despite it having one of the weirdest names (don’t forget there’s a band called Oingo Boingo). Lyrically awesome and indie/alternative sound is always a winner. Here’s a favorite that might remind you of “Light in your eyes” by the blessed union of souls if you’re a young person.
That was going to be the url of this blog. But thought maybe not let people know I’m THAT self absorbed from the first glance. But oops, too late.
You know when people tell you, “omg you should totally do this”, you just disregard it because you think they don’t mean it? Well today a good friend made a suggestion saying “you should be a music blogger, I would totally follow you!”
So here you go. I don’t know if he meant it or not, but I decided to put together some cool shiz I love and come across on this. How’s that? Let me know what you think.
Starting off with the best, here’s my all time no.1 of song from the very sexy Dave and the boys!
