little things

  1. Coming home to an empty house
  2. And knowing that it will be empty for a while
  3. Saying "Hello?" aloud anyway
  4. Hearing your voice echo down the halls for the first time
  5. Listening to jazz while eating lunch in complete quietude

killer beats

I love songs with killer beats.

The list goes by artist and then song.

The songs I immediately thought of in terms of killer beats are:
  1. Fabian - Heatwave
  2. Chilly Gonzales - You Can Dance
  3. Phoenix - Lisztomania (Classix remix)
  4. Washed Out - Feel It All Around
  5. Jim Rivers - I Go Deep (MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE? MAYBE.)
  6. Friendly Fires - Paris (Aeroplane remix ft. Au Revoir Simone)
  7. Major Lazer - Hold the Line ft. Mr. Lexx & Santigold
 And there's a couple more that probably wouldn't be what you'd expect. You can discover them for yourself.

people I'd like to see on tour/in concert

I've never seen a concert in my life. Ever. Isn't that blasphemous and ludicrous?

Sure, I've seen the occasional Kennedy Center piano recital and classical music sort of thing, but by concert, I mean I've never seen any of my favorite singers/groups/musicians perform live.

Lately I've really wanted to see certain people live. Here's my list for now:
  1. Anna Calvi
  2. Ladyhawke
  3. Lykke Li
  4. The xx

I don't want your money
I want your trust
I want your faith
I want your love
I want your support
But even if I don't have it
I'm gonna go my own way anyway.

mixtape #1

Lately I've discovered a handful of people who have really awesome music tastes and I find myself wanting to post music on everybody's Wall all the time, so it's easier to do a compilation post here instead of flooding everyone's Facebook...

I really like discussing and sharing things I like so this is pretty much what I'm gonna do with music, too, from now on...

People who I (always) keep in mind about music: Kanna, Astrid & Dylan, Shannon, Lynh
