Tycho: L (live)

I just discovered the magnificent Tycho and I am hooked. I have been searching for more downbeat instrumental music to listen to this fall and Tycho completely hits the mark. His new album “Awake” is a relaxing and refreshing record that showcases Tycho’s brilliance for danceable and chill songs.

“L” is one of the best records on the album with its easygoing beat and calm feel. Check it out.


Kanye West: Runaway (short film)

I finally got around to watching Kanye West’s short film “Runaway” for his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album. I definitely liked it especially the visuals that constantly occur. The angel in the film is also interesting with her curiosity and sporadic dance movements. Check it out.

Miles Teller’s career has really begun to take off. After stellar performances in “The Spectacular Now” and “Rabbit Hole”,  he has a series of movies coming out this year and lined up next year including the “Fantastic Four” reboot. His next film to hit theaters is “Two Night Stand”.
“Two Night Stand” is a romantic comedy about two people Alec and Megan (Teller and Analeigh Tipton)who have a one night stand. When Megan is leaving Alec’s apartment she discovers that there is a huge blizzard going on outside. The two decide to pass the time by getting to know each other.  Check out the trailer above.

James Blake: Life Round Here (live)

I’ve been listening to a lot of James Blake lately and he keeps surprising me by just how good a musician he is.  His second album “Overgrown” is a melancholy soulful record that holds your attention from start to finish. The varied music production is something to behold with its post-dubstep sound and alternative R&B beats.

One of the best songs from this record is “Life Round Here”. Its repetitive but catchy lyrics is sung in a low-key voice by Blake. The live performance of this song is quite incredible. Check it out.
