My music obsession this week is a track I heard on last week’s Gossip Girl. It’s “Wolf & I” by Oh Land. This electronica type track reminds me of the good old days of Portishead, Bjork and Goldfrapp before they got…well, weird. In any case, take a listen.

So we went and saw the new X-Men: First Class movie on Monday, though it was a decent movie, the thing we left wondering was who in the hell did the awesome cover of the Immigrant Song in the trailer for US-Redo of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo?
Of course we promptly forgot which song it was and where we’d seen it. He brought it up a few days later and I thus found myself scouring through clips of X-men to find it only to recall it was in a trailer. Long story short, it’s by Trent Reznor and Karen O (of Yeah Yeah Yeahs fame). You can hear it here in the trailer.
Though I’ve seen the original movie I’ll have to see this one too because it’s by my second favorite director, David Fincher. Plus, who can deny the hotness that is Daniel Craig, amirite?
