Mood: Helpless

22 Apr

1. The New Frontiers

The New Frontiers’ “Mending” just fell into my mailbox recently and when I popped it into my computer for a listen, I was really pleasantly surprised. It’s evocative and sad sounding.. good self reflection music.

3. Goldfrapp

Golden Frappuccino’s newest, “Seventh Tree,” has been out for ages and ages now. I just recently got a chance to take a listen and saw what I have been missing out on! If you haven’t had a chance to listen to it, like me, then take a brief moment to listen to Goldfrapp’s A&E. And here are two remixes to spice it up.

4. Missy Elliott and Chromeo

Just to make sure I am not completely depressing you with all this sad/ephemeral music, here’s a little dance music to end the day.

    Great list! You’re definitely missing out on this new vid from Brandi Carlile though:) This is one of my favorite tracks from her new album Bear Creek. It’s called “Save Part of Yourself”!
