Happy weekend my lovelies! This week I bring you Sleigh Bells, a kick ass duo from New York who take noise pop to the next level. Their video for “Comeback Kid” is all kinds of awesome, so grab your leather studded jacket and get ready…

Happy weekend everyone! How are we all dealing with the February blues? Alright I hope! It’s nearly Valentines day so I thought I’d post something sweet.  Whether you’re happily one of a pair or single like me, there’s no harm in a little lovely song.  So here’s a recent indie classic to sing-a-long to. Grab a pizza and a bottle of wine, it’s ‘Lust For Life” by Girls!

Enjoy!

Happy February! As some of you may have noticed we were lacking in a Weekend Tune last week, and for this I apologize. Alas I was off in New York City celebrating my birthday! So now you must forgive me. Besides, I’ve got an awesome tune to make it up to you. It’s a basket-case of a music video backed by a good beat. It’s Miike Snow (fitting band for the recent weather eh?) with “Paddling Out”!

Their second album Happy To You comes out March 27th.
Enjoy the Swedish electro-pop insanity!

Happy weekend everyone! Hope it’s going along splendidly! For this week’s weekend tune I thought I’d vibe off of something Casie posted earlier this week. Remember Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know”? It truly does deserve a double post so let me refresh your memory…

Pretty great stuff eh? Yeah. Enjoy that on repeat for a while until you’re ready for the weekend tune…….
You good? Ready? Alright then we’ll move on.

Now some of you might be wondering, “Hey Kate! Who was that stunning lady songstress featured in the about amazingness?” That ladies and gents in Kimbra. She’s from New Zealand and her debut album Vows just came out last summer. She’s kinda of a St. Vincent meets tUnE-yArDs turned pop act! Here’s the video for her song “Settle Down”!

Enjoy!

Happy merry everything everyone! Tis the season to be jolly and all that, so here’s my favourite song from a favourtie holiday film of mine. Enjoy Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen singing about snow in White Christmas! I know the weather has been quite nice but how lovely would some snow be?!

Hey hey hey! Weekend tune time! This week I decided to post the latest video from the oh so talked about Lana Del Ray. Here’s her deal…

Once upon a time there was a shy girl named Lizzy Grant with blonde hair, a pretty voice, and dreams of being a star. Then she met some industry types, and her lips magically grew as big as her dreams. Before you knew it that shy indie girl with the pretty voice became latest hipster hottie! And who doesn’t dig Video Games?

Whether you love or hate this manufactures hipster pop star, you gotta admit that this music video for “Born To Die” and Miss.Lizzy/Lana are both pretty amazing. Tigers and tattoos and fire oh my!

Enjoy!

It’s December now! Whhhaaaaaaaaattt?! Yeah. I know. Crazy. Get ready for the snow and cold everybody (unless you’re somewhere sunny in which case enjoy the sun you lucky duck)! Luckily for us there are also weekends in December! So here’s our very first December weekend tune!

Just this past Thursday night Feist played Toronto’s Massey Hall and I was oh so excited to be there. She played a bunch of her new album Metals as well as a hearty handful of her older well loved songs. About one thrid into her set a bunch of people got on stage to dance along, including myself! After the dance party was over people started to leave the stage but Feist said we could stay and chill if we wanted to, so for the rest of the show a bunch of us sat down on stage around Feist and her band campfire style! I still get goosebumps just thinking about it! Crazy right?

The entire night made me feel…well… it made me feel it all! So here’s Feist with “I Feel It All”! Feel free to dance along!

Enjoy!
