THERE'S A LITTLE BIT OF ME INSIDE YOU, GATHERING WHAT YOU'VE LOST

I'm pretty sure you can guess how in love I am with Kings of Convenience, based on the fact that one of the latests posts was on this very same band. Me in You is slowly becoming my favorite song along with Misread. What a mother fucking band; that is all.

WHEN YOU CRY A PIECE OF MY HEART DIES, KNOWING THAT I MAY HAVE BEEN THE CAUSE

Got this song posted on my wall on Facebook a few days ago, and I might as well just say I think it's the cutest song on this earth! Don't think I can listen to it without getting the chills. The perfect melody with the perfect lyrics. Here's The Girl by City and Colour. Too cute for words.

THE LONELIEST PEOPLE WERE THE ONES WHO ALWAYS SPOKE THE TRUTH

I wasn't a big fan of Kings of Convenience before, (absolutely not saying I didn't like them either!) but now I am completely obsessed. I blame it on the same girl who got me into Calle 13, who also happens to be the one that made me realize how awesome my music really is... (just kidding, I already knew that ;) )
Misread is by far their best song and I'm pretty sure I've played it at least 11 times in the past 4 hours.

I DON'T THINK YOU'RE RIGHT FOR HIM, THINK OF WHAT IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN

I thought I'd posted this song last month, but I was just looking for it and realized I hadn't, so here it is.  My brother sent me this song called Ho Hey by The Lumineers a few weeks ago, and I would just like to point out the fact that he has quite a music taste now-- learning from the greatest, I see. ;)

FREE DOWNLOAD OF VAMPIRE WEEKEND'S EVERYWHERE COVER

I'm guessing most of you, if not all, already know Vampire Weekend, one of New York's finest bands, but I doubt a lot of you have ever heard this cover of Fleetwood Mac's Everywhere.
Man, I'm pretty sure they can cover any song and it'll still sound amazing.

SHOT MY BABE WITH AN ARROW, IN THE WIND

I don't really have a favorite band, but when I got asked yesterday I went for one of my first picks: Angus and Julia Stone. Surprisingly enough, this girl knew who I was talking about, and played Just A Boy right away. As if that wasn't enough, she also said that she doesn't like how they don't sing at the same time, instead each of them have solos. Sweet comment, and I completely agree. I think we could be friends! ha
Anyway, Angus Stone's album comes out tomorrow, so here's one of the new songs, Bird on the Buffalo, to prepare you for it. ;)

 
I also have to point out the fact that I thought it was pretty funny how people here refer to indie music as "fogatero" which technically means something bonfire-y.

BLACKBIRD SINGING IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT, TAKE THESE BROKEN WINGS AND LEARN TO FLY

I've been falling asleep to Blackbird by The Beatles for the past 2 weeks, ever since my cousin started playing it on guitar the other day. Don't think I have anything to say, other than it's fucking amazing and it's becoming my favorite Beatles song.

SOME NIGHTS ARE WORTH THE HANGOVER - SUMMER JAM: CALLE 13

My party days are well over, and I'm not a big drinker either, but I can't say no to a good hangout, especially while I'm in this side of the world!
Went to a girl's house last night and all I'll say is: these Colombians sure know how to drink. Mind you we'd had training and a game that day, and then a game today so going big last night wasn't probably the brightest idea, but it was worth it.
Anyhow, they played this song called Muerte en Hawaii ("Death in Hawaii" -pretty nice, huh?) by Calle 13, and I do have to admit it's my new summer jam, even though the song is exactly a year old. Gotta keep up with this music, I'm always a step behind here.


PS- Best line: "Le he dado la vuelta al mundo en menos de un segundo."
