Phantogram - "16 Years"

Phantogram - "16 Years": "It's appropriate that I first saw these guys opening for School of Seven Bells, since there is a commonality in the pretty female vocals + spacey new wave synths approach, but they each do it so well. I've had this song in my head for a week."

Cults - "Oh My God"

Cults - "Oh My God": "This popped into my head this morning and I realized I had never blogged about it, even though I heard it months ago. Good luck not getting this stuck in your head too, but it's got such a nice, low-key bounce, you shouldn't mind!"

Idlewild - "Love Steals Us From Loneliness"

Idlewild - "Love Steals Us From Loneliness": "I need to apologize for being a neglectful blogger - this last Tuesday (11.1.11) was the 6th anniversary of my Song of The Day blog, which had already passed 1,000 posts this September. I was going to do a song blowout this week, but I got too busy with work. It made me question if I should just put the blog on hiatus at this point, but at the end of the day - even if I may go too long between posts - I need this outlet to share music with folks I too often don't get to otherwise, so I'm not giving it up. Please enjoy this Idlewild song for the occasion instead - it has a birthday reference, a bit of melancholy that reflects my disappointment at missing my own anniversary of sorts, and a it's great song in sum, as always."
