Girls: Darling (live)

I have been listening to a lot of Girls lately and I really do miss this band. Their first album simply titled “Album” was quite amazing with its acoustic and laid-back feel. One of the best songs on the album is “Darling” which has a surf rock feel to it. In this video the band…

Prisoners

Denis Villeneuve’s “Prisoners” is a dark and gripping thriller about the lengths that a parent would go to find their child. The film stars Hugh Jackman as Keller Dover a man whose child goes missing on Thanksgiving. His neighbors’ daughter goes missing as well and Dover enlists the help of Franklin Birch (Terrence Howard) in…

Nas: The Don

I finally had the chance to check out Nas’ Life is Good album and like I expected, it is a great album. As usual Nas brings his lyrical astuteness and social consciousness to the record. There are many great tracks on the album but the one that hits the hardest is “The Don”. The song…

The Belle Game: Wait Up For You

I recently discovered Canadian band The Belle Game and I can’t get enough of their atmospheric sound. The band’s music has been described as dark pop and it suits due to their somber songs. The band released their debut album “Ritual Tradition Habit” last year and one of the songs from that album is ‘Wait…

Trust

David Schwimmer’s “Trust” is a movie that shows both the lost of innocence and the vulnerability of children. “Trust” stars Liana Liberato as Annie a 14 year old girl who has an online relationship with a boy her age in California named Charlie. She slowly begins to fall for Charlie as she gets to know…

True Detective

I just completed watching HBO’s True Detective and I have to say that is one if not the best TV show ever created. Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey deliver the best performances of their careers as Detectives Marty Hart and Rustin Cohle respectively. Initially they are trying to solve the murder of a girl found…

The National: Graceless (SNL live)

The National are rapidly becoming more well-known after their many performances on several TV shows including The Mindy Project and The Simpsons. Their music is being played everywhere which is furthering their reach of grabbing listeners who probably wouldn’t listen to them. I have been a fan of this band for a few years now…

Hamilton Leithauser: Alexandra

I just found out a few days ago that The Walkmen’s lead singer Hamilton Leithauser is releasing a solo album in May. The record is titled “Black Hours” and the lead single from the album is “Alexandra”. The video shows Leithauser dressed in his trademark suit in the backroom of a burlesque show. Vampire Weekend’s…

Between Two Ferns: Zach Galifianakis and President Barack Obama

Check out this very funny interview with Zach Galifianakis and President Barack Obama.  Galifianakis is his usual ridiculous self as he asks President Obama the most outlandish questions ever. But the real surprise is just how funny Obama is and his retorts are really hilarious. Check it out.

Spoon: Black Like Me

I have been re-listening to all of Spoon’s albums the last couple days. I am finding so many songs that I are really good that I missed the first couple of listens. “Black Like Me” happens to be one of those songs that sparked a renewed interest in me. I found the above video after…
