Friday doesn’t feel like Friday when you know you have to go to work on Saturday. Exhausted. Music to the rescue?
Today’s Emo: Coming Down / Dum Dum Girls
‘by tomorrow I’ll be gone / if you wanna tell me something / you had better make it strong’
Coming Down has an effervescent, Wild Horses couldn’t keep me away kind of feel to it, where things start to slow down around you when you listen. I am finding myself totally bewitched by these California ladies’ new single, off their sophomore album, Only Dreams, out September 27th via my favorite label, Sub Pop.
Lead singer Dee Dee (Kristin Gundred) has the chops and songwriting strength of Cat Power, and this song sounds dangerously close to one of my favorite Mazzy Star songs, Fade Into You. I could imagine it being played in one of those epic montages at the end of an episode of House, instilling a lingering feeling of letting go and finality. Not the best upper for a Friday, but worth a dozen listens nonetheless. #emo
Today’s Untz: Crave You / Flight Facilities (Adventure Club Dubstep Remix)
‘why can’t you want me like the other boys do / they stare at me while I stare at you’
Sultry vocals and a very self assured young lady who considers herself to be dripping in gold get untzified via dubstep duo Adventure Club’s dance worthy antics. Flight Facilities present that age old problem of finding oneself amidst a bevy of suitors (life is tough) yet only attracted to the one person who could care less, and Adventure Club really nails the remix, taking the song from a 6 to a 9 in no time. Crave worthy. #untz
