Photo by: The lovely Sarah RoosNot only are we super excited to be off work today but also very enthused about Fausto finally coming off the DL and starting this evening's Tribe game. It's also worth mentioning how amazing being able to sleep in this morning was -- these past few weeks definitely took their toll on us. . .for now, we're just relishing in our laziness and in the fact that we have absolutely *nothing* to do today :)
For now, we hope you enjoy the following Top Five Songs of the Week as much as we do:
5. [Mp3] Passion Pit - I've Got Your Number Before the MGMT-like vocals kick in, our first thought was 604 era Ladytron and immediately got into this upbeat song. With a sound so unique, it only makes sense that they would recently be signed onto the eclectic roster of Frenchkiss Records, joining Les Savy Fav and The Dodos.
4. [Mp3] Tracy Shedd - Whatever It Takes Reminiscent of Liz Phair (back in her Exile in Guyville days) and other mid-90's female alt-rockers which makes us nostalgic for a time when The End blaired from our bedroom stereos.
3. [Mp3] Forest Fire - I Make Windows Twangy, Bob Dylan inspired melodies, the perfect compliment to other indie favorites like Fleet Foxes or Bon Iver. This band from Brooklyn's music is best enjoyed while sipping on Brooklyn Brewery's Brooklyner Weisse Beer on a nice day.
2. [Mp3] Crookers - Embrace The Martian (ft. KiD CuDi) This Solon native is doing Cleveland proud with his very first mixtape, A Kid Named Cudi, being dropped by Fool's Gold (that's A-Trak's label, Kanye's DJ) no less.
1. [Mp3] The Morning Benders - Love Fool (Cardigans Cover) Our very favorite song off their new cover album, Bedroom Covers, which is totally worth checking out in its entirety here. Don't miss out!
