Starting tomorrow, it is the first weekend of Coachella. If you are like me then you are also not going. So for my first list of telling you what you should be listening to I am going to highlight some Coachella acts. Also if you want to see the concert they are streaming it here http://www.youtube.com/coachella
Besides Tori Amos, Florence is my favorite female singer. She is magical and awesome for me and brings me to instant happy. I love all of her songs but this one in particular is great.
This is my first skirting the whole act portion. Mazzy Star is performing at Coachella. But really all you most know is Hope Sandoval. Well that is all I know. And I love Mazzy Star this song is in my heart always.
They have that folk twang that I love so much in music. Similar to the Secret Sisters but unique in their own way. Great harmony. And lyrics too.
They are calling back all the awesome 60’s soul music. And they do it so well.
Skirting the artist number 2. Frank Ocean’s voice is like butter to my ears and this song it is so beautiful and shines so much. Plus the rest is pretty awesome.
Great rock and beats. Black Rebel Motorcycle Clubish. They are one of those bands that always come up in the shuffle and I am all “who is this I really like it”. Yes I talk to myself.
Pulp is one of my all time favorite bands. I like many of their songs and this one isn’t my favorite but you get the awesomeness of their music combined with highlighting the sultry sexiness that is Jarvis Cocker’s voice.
Really skirting the artist here. I really love the Glee version (sung by Darren Criss and Matt Bomer). I can’t stop listening to the Glee version but the original Gotye version is also really good. Darren Criss is another artist that has a voice that just melts me into goo.
The last two spots are for people who are not going to Coachella but still great.
My darling Andrea is introducing me to the magical world of Massive Attack and this song is a perfect example of their sultry awesome. Since you aren’t going to Coachella I suggest putting on some Massive Attack (particularly this song) and have a long love making session (self-love completely welcome)
If you like catchy teen pop songs this is a perfect specimen. If you don’t then move along. This song has all the elements of a perfect, catchy, bubblegum pop song: cute boys, catchy chorus, uplifting. If you allow yourself to fall into the song you will be bouncing and realizing your inner beauty.
