“Leaf Off / The Cave” by José González

“Leaf Off / The Cave” by José González

This one’s more my speed.  I liked “Every Age” when I heard it a few months back, but now when I go back, I find the track a little too sleepy for my taste.  “Leaf Off / The Cave” is the latest single from José González’s upcoming album Vestiges & Claws, out February 17, 2015.  I today get the option of hearing the song the way it appears on the album (below), or from a recent performance with an eight-piece band and 27-person choir on Sweden’s popular award show, P3 Guld.

Karen O did it again: she wrote one of those songs that take you from a dark, cloudy and cold day, to a distant, warm, instagram-y summer where people still use analogue cameras.  She also made a genius decision regarding the video for “Day Go By” – a short film by Wiissa aka Vanessa Hollander and Wilson Philippe – which is absolutely adorable.  I’m in actual awe of it.  So stop whatever it is you’re doing, put the video into full screen and enjoy the ride.

Last week, I found this track while making my “Trending” playlist for Aux.  Refs were moving way up the Hype Machine top 50 and guessing by who was posting about the song, I could instantly tell it was going to be something just right for Indie Music Filter.  Refs is the collaboration between producer Zachary Andrew (Black Light Dinner Party, High Highs) and r&b virtuoso Richard Saunders, while “Pain Goes Away” is their first soundcloud upload and one of the most blogged songs of 2015.  Check it out.

I’m playing hooky today, because I always try to take off on my birthday.  Still though, I felt I needed to get something up on the old blog today.  How about this track that’s been stuck in my head all weekend?  “Greek Tragedy” by The Wombats, from the upcoming release of Glitterbug.
