SONG OF THE DAY: LCD Soundsystem — “All My Friends”

This is from LCD Soundsystem’s Sound of Silver released in 2007 on DFA.  The video was done in a single take and directed by Tom Kuntz, who interestingly enough also directed the emmy-winning Old Spice “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like” commercials.

SONG OF THE DAY: Anthony Hamilton – “The Truth”

Anthony Hamilton is without a doubt one of my favorite soul/r&b artists. “The Truth”, off the excellent album Ain’t Nobody Worryin’, is one of my favorite songs. So it is sort of a no brainer for Song of The Day. Another no brainer is checking out his new album, Back to Love, which the good people at NPR have made available for free here.

Enjoy,

UPCOMING SHOW AND SONG OF THE DAY: Macklemore and Ryan Lewis — “Otherside Remix”

The video project for “Otherside Remix ft. Fences” took place over a year and a half at a bunch of different locations. It was directed by the same guy who made Macklemore’s video for “My Oh My”, a tribute to longtime Seattle Mariners announcer Dave Niehaus. Enjoy the video, and for those of you on top of your game, enjoy the show.

SONG OF THE DAY: Fleet Foxes — “The Shrine / An Argument”

The Shrine / An Argument from Sean Pecknold on Vimeo.

“The Shrine / An Argument” is from Fleet Foxes‘ Helplessness Blues released earlier this year on Sub Pop.  The album is without a so-so song, and as a whole definitely one of my favorite albums of the year.  This video was directed by Sean Pecknold who also co-animated the film.

SONG OF THE DAY: Deer Tick — “Main Street”

“Main Street” is a new release, and the video is awesome. I’ll let it speak for itself. It’s rumored they’ll be releasing a new album/EP soon as well.

SONG OF THE DAY: Sharon Van Etten — “Serpents”

Sharon Van Etten – Serpents by Pretty Much Amazing

Van Etten’s new album, Tramp, is due out on February 7 on Jagjaguwar.  It has some fantastic guest appearances from Aaron and Bryce Dessner (The National), Matt Barrick (The Walkmen), Zach Condon (Beirut), Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak), Thomas Bartlett (Doveman), and Julianna Barwick.  On March 28 she’ll be playing the Bluebird in Denver so mark ya calendar.

SONG OF THE DAY: Gotye — “Somebody That I Used to Know”

 

“Somebody That I Used to Know” is off Making Mirrors, which was released in August this year. My friend showed me this video over the break, it’s a super creative blend of music, video, and art.

SONG OF THE DAY: Portage — “Into the River”

Portage hails from the great state of Minnesota and formed in early 2011.  Their self-released album, The Unsalted Sea, is full of excellently crafted rock/pop numbers and streamable in its entirety on the artists’ bandcamp page.  It is wholly worth a listen or five.

SONG OF THE DAY: The Submarines — “You, Me & The Bourgeoisie”

“You, Me, & The Bourgeoisie” is off the album Honeysuckle Weeks, released in 2008. John Dragonetti and Blake Hazard, the band’s two main members (they sometimes tour with additional people) are in a relationship, so don’t get any ideas.

SONG OF THE DAY: BlakRoc – “Ain’t Nothing Like You”

Ain’t Nothing Like You is off of the self-titled BlakRoc (BlakRoc Records, 2009).
