1st Song of the Day: “Can’t Help Falling In Love” by Ingrid Michaelson

15 Apr

It all is going to be okay.  Be ok.  Yesterday, our office went through a new regime change.  Game of Thrones style.  The queen is dead.  Long live the King.  The king had some issues with me with a handful of confusing aspects.  Which didn’t set a good foot in the right way with the office’s ruling princess.  It gonna be a challenging week.  But after 2 years…the office is finally united.  No more civil wars.

Anyway, Ingrid dropped her new album today.  On tax day.  Haven’t listened to it yet.  Planning on.  Might keep my mind off of the tragic day we’re about to cover.

Romantic love song / cover coming at you.

Unplugged: “Out Among The Stars” by Brandon Flowers, Father John Misty, & Local Natives

28 Mar

La Blogothèque joined The Killers’ Brandon Flowers out on the road to the desert where he meets up with Father John Misty & Local Natives.  The supergroup was brought together to cover a bunch of tracks from the lost Johnny Cash album — “Out Among The Stars”.  You get insight to the music in between each local.  Hell of a ride.

Watch as the stars befall these travelling players in a short subject film by one of the greatest guerrilla webpage on the internet.  Johnny would be proud of this.

 

Watch: “Kentucky” by Billie Joe Armstrong & Norah Jones

24 Mar

This video is so nice to look at.  Two crazy kids on a road trip across america, Norah & Billie Joe’s Everly Brothers cover as their anthem.  The whole record is a driver’s dream really.  So, this music video visuals are the perfect fit of easy breezy living caught on camera.

Stream: “No Rest For The Wicked” by Lykke Li

19 Mar

Ain’t it the truth?  Lykke Li continues to showcase preview singles & teaser visuals on her way to releasing ‘I Never Learn’ on May 5th.  This emotional ballad is just as haunting as the last.  Projecting heartbreak & passion from a overthoughtout broken mindset.  A trend that will be major part of Lykke’s upcoming project.  Like dead flowers, turning…like being flushed down a toilet.  Oh lovers, will we ever be happy?  Despite it’s shades of black…the chorus is quite catchy.  Just be warned.  Not for the moody.

Unplugged: “She Drives Me Crazy (@ Virtue and Vice Studio)” by Matt Butler

17 Feb

Happy Monday! I couldn’t help myself from posting our friend, Matt Butler, live…rocking…acoustic cover of the Fine Young Cannibals’ “She Drives Me Crazy” at Virtue and Vice Studios.  He & the guys kill it, don’t they?  Can only imagine how that effect those NYC women at the Bowery.  Wowzers.

Matt’s ‘Reckless Son’ is dropping soon.  I got a sneak preview of a few tracks & they are superb.  Keep an ear out!

Unplugged: “Hold On We’re Going Home / The Monster” by Foxes

10 Feb

This sounds heavenly.  Foxes mashed up the lyrics to Drake’s “Hold On We’re Going Home” & Eminem + Rihanna’s “The Monster” to fuse a coherent track…perfect for the Valentine’s Day holiday.  It’s the soft vocal & swift melody that really gets me.  Enjoy.

 

Stream: “Shelter You” by Lily Allen & Lois Eliot

31 Jan

The Late Tarka Cordell, who took his own life back in 2008, left behind a vault of unreleased material and many fans who are excited to keep his legacy alive.  I offer you this haunting Lily Allen & Lois Eliot collabo of Tarka’s “Shelter You”. Hold your lover close…this is a good one.

1st Song of the Day: “Fare Thee Well (Dink’s Song)” by Marcus Mumford & Oscar Issac

17 Dec

Everyone is getting into the office early today.  Which doesn’t leave much time to write with y’all. Will say this.  Got one more Fav Song write up left.  Afterwards I’m gonna watch Lone Survivor.  That’s it really.  I look forward to posting more soon.  This is an album I’ve been bumping for a week now.
