This is another one of those songs that I heard once and immediately fell in love with. Strangely I happened upon the video on a fashion blog.
This tune is part blues, part work song, part steady marching band beat but ALL awesome. Go on over to Delta Rae’s site to watch the video and grab the song for FREE. FREE, I say!
My music obsession for this week is Devotchka’s “Head Honcho”. I found this one with iTune’s Genius because I have Beirut tracks. I’ve gotta say that’s right on the money. I do like this in a Beirut kind of way.
Although this particular song is like a cross between a German drinking song and a Mariachi band. It’s just great. Click for Video.
I’ve had this song, “Shelter” by Birdy, on repeat for four days straight so I decided it was time to write up an obsession post. The original, The XX’s “Shelter” was on at least one of my book soundtracks (although I think it may be a book that I haven’t released). But this version, this version is even better! I do so love me some melancholy tunes and this gal, Birdy, does great melancholy. (Don’t believe me, check out her cover of Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love“!)
So pop in a pair of earbuds, kick back in a dark room with a box of tissues and prepare to sniffle a little.
Don’t want to sniffle? Try this song instead.
