Top 5 Songs Of The Week (Stop and Savor Edition!)

Upon dropping Kelly's parents off at the airport, we decided to treat ourselves to a wholesome and healthy (and delicious!) brunch at the awesome little establishment known as Organic Energy. . .We're still savoring the flavors of our Supersonic Smoothie (blueberry, raspberry, mango, strawberry, ginseng, and topped off with an antioxidant shot). . .mmm

Along similar lines, here are some wholesome and delicious songs for you to savor throughout this lovely, lazy Saturday afternoon:

5.
{mp3} The Antlers - The Apple Orchard (Beach House Cover) Both of us being suckers for dreamy landscapes, this song seems like a gift sent down from the heavens

4. {mp3} Lost On Purpose - The 70's From our buddy Will's latest offering, Not If But When, is a song we found to be an especially fast favorite, summoning the spirit of Elliott Smith

3. {mp3} Headlights - Cherry Tulips We just started listening to Headlights' new album, Some Racing, Some Stopping, a few days ago and have already become quite attached to it's warm and sunny melodies

2. {mp3} Coconut Records - It's Not You It's Me How can we not be smitten with Jason Schwartman's perfect pop "recipe" = Brendan Benson + Beach Boys + Phoenix??

1. {mp3} Deer Tick - Beautiful Girls This is an undeniably catchy song (yes, originally performed by Sean Kingston) that will have you snapping your fingers and singing along in no time ;)

i have been on a serious smoothie kick lately---like seriously 4 or 5 a week

i don't know about any organic places near here, but i've been frequenting the smoothie place at legacy village and robeks at harvard park. i'm a fan of the strictly fruit and non-fat yogurt smoothies that tropical cafe does, whereas robeks tends to use juice and sorbet, but it's still quality

i actually heard that deer tick cover a month or two ago. i like the nod to "stand by me" towards the end, because 90% of the kids listening to kingston's song have no idea what he is sampling the entire time, or that he's sampling anything at all

ALSO

thank you for telling me that there's a new headlights album. i really loved their last one.

Okay, so for lunch today I went to Organic Energy, and I've decided that I need to clarify my last comment: While I am a fan of smoothies, I am not a fan of $8 smoothies.

I know organic fruit is expensive, but holy shit.

haha -- we completely agree, thus the reason we shared our $8 smoothie ;) making it a slightly more justifiable $4 smoothie??
