Approaching the time of year where blogs list their “Best Albums of 2013”, I have a sneaking suspicion that this album is not on many radars. I honestly think it might be the MOST underrated album of the year. It’s not “Blue Slide Park” Mac, but that’s why it is so good.
EMOnday 12/2: “Grapevine Fires” - Death Cab for Cutie
A little bit of a somber choice this week. This is one of my favorite Death Cab songs, as I catch myself listening to it at least more than once every time. The tight knit sighing harmonies and the beautifully written lyrics are plenty to mellow you out at the start of the week after Thanksgiving break.
EMOnday 11/25: “fuck, dantooine is big” - Marietta
I chose this song for this week’s EMOnday pick because I watched Punch Drunk Love for the first time last night (which is sampled at the beginning of this track). Furthermore, this is one of my favorite tracks off of the Philly band’s most recent project, Summer Death. The whole album is a perfect soundtrack to the increasingly cold weather and the seasonal depression that comes with it.
I usually try to post serious musical content, but I couldn’t pass this one up.
Being as it was the first Kanye project that I can remember not caring for, I’m glad that SOMEBODY spoofed the video for Bound 2. The fact that it is two of my favorite comic actors just made it perfect.
