Here is the beautifully stylized video for “Losing You” off Solange’s new album True. While it can’t be easy getting out of the shadow cast by her older sister Beyonce, Solange is doing a pretty good job. Teo
I promise I’m not just choosing this song because it’s named after my amazing state. Youth Lagoon-aka Trevor Powers-combines hauntingly beautiful lyrics with synths and guitar for an amazing creation that has been my most listened to album in 2012. The video is awesome as well!

“It makes a big difference how you spread it around”
This Scandinavian musician makes some really cool music without anyone else to slow him down. Utilizing a looping pedal, he creates multiple beats, guitar and base lines, and backup vocals to support whatever he’s doing at the time. Check it out if you’re into cool things.
I just had to share this remix by the electronica musician of the moment, Nicolas Jaar. The techno beats and subtle pauses layered over the ever-present bass will have you hooked. This particular intro sounds like bricks being sauteed with butter in a hot pan and the entire song is in fact a delicious treat for the ears— enjoy. If you like this check out the original beat by Shlohmo from the ‘Vacation’ EP.
Finn Riggins are based out of the lovely town of Boise, Idaho and just came out with a great new EP epitomized by this catchy title track “Benchwarmers.”
Mountain Man is an all-female three-piece that formed a couple of years ago at Bennington College in Vermont. They create chillingly beautiful harmonies, some with sparse guitar and others a capella.
