"Beach" - Still Parade

For when life is a bitch beach. September is always a crazy month…It has been 100% “go go go” for us here. (Too much real life, not enough blog!)

To remind us all to chill the eff out during the overwhelming and overextending, Still Parade is here to save to the day. Breathe in. Breathe out.  

"Lay Your Love Down" - Wolf Gang

We’re pretty sure that this blog has gone through at least two post format revisions since we last posted a Wolf Gang tune, i.e. it’s been a while. But totally worth the wait.

And we can’t wait until they play “Lay your Love Down” on this series of Made in Chelsea. Because you know that’s coming. 

"Bad Habit" - The Kooks

Gene Simmons claims rock is officially dead. Ahem. We beg to differ. 

"Pets" - deadmau5

Welp, this Disney vs. Deadmau5 copyright / trademark battle just got interesting! TBH, we love both parties and feel a tad conflicted. Disney = magical childhood memories. Deadmau5 = magical adulthood memories. At the end of the day, though, we’re a music blah-g, so we’re rooting for our favorite non-animated mau5 at the mo. Fuck the man, am I right?! (But also, Disney princesses 4eva). 

"Want Your Feeling" - Jessie Ware

Jessie Ware. A musical 10 if there ever was one. 

UPDATE: since posting this, the powers that be have shortened the full-length track to a sample. We’re leaving it up for posterity but not without asking the question WHY DID YOU DO THAT?!

"Heaven" - Harper

No post yesterday (we don’t labor on Labor Day, sorry we’re not sorry). We make it up to you with London’s latest #ladysinger “POP!” soon-to-be-sensation.  

"Dream And An MPC" - Golden Coast

Son of a beach! Summer anthem from the west [and best] coast. Towels, tequila, fedora, and Ray-Bans not included.

"Sheets" - Shannon Saunders

Sure, Shannon Saunders sounds more like the name of an intrepid girl detective than a rising pop star, but the proof is in the pudding, or rather in the “Sheets.” Besides, if this isn’t a world that can embrace a Nancy Drew / Ellie Goulding amalgam, it’s not a world we care to jam in.

"Say You’ll Be There" - MØ (Spice Girls Cover)

SUNDAY COVERS: MØ Spice. That is all. 

"Blue Veins" - Little Shoes Big Voice

Today’s public service announcement: Emily Harvey has descended from the heavens to bless us plebes with her musical goddess voice. Harps, a cappella intros, and a synth beat … Just what our Saturday morning calls for. 

Reminds us of: Ellie Goulding, Active Child
