LIVING IN THE MOMENT, LIVING MY LIFE, EASY AND BREEZY, WITH PEACE IN MY MIND

I am really into Jason Mraz's not-so-new album Love Is A Four Letter Word right now, and I think it's probably his best album yet! Best two songs are definitely Living In the Moment and I Won't Give Up. Sooo good!

ONE THOUSAND WAYS TO PLEASE YOUR MAN, NOT EVEN ONE REQUIRES A PLAN

Felt like posting this song today. The Strokes are so awesome, and let's be real, the fact that they used YOLO— You Only Live Once   before it was cool makes them even more awesome.

COVERED UP WITH GARDEN DIRT, WITH JUST ONE GLANCE YOU TEAR MY SKIRT

This song was featured on one of Vivianne Westwood's videos, and of course I had to look it up because it was so sick!
If you are into Flight Facilities' Crave You, it is quite likely that you will enjoy this tune called And I Say by Nicolas Jaar.

INTRODUCING… DOG IS DEAD

No one's procrastination is complete without spending a few hours on YouTube, and, of course, that was my case [a few times] last week. I came across this band from Nottingham called Dog Is Dead, and they are so good that I can't even pick just one song to post, so here are my top three. First one's called Hands Down, then the second one is Glockenspiel Song, which is then followed by Young. I might as well just say how much I love the last video!

DEVENDRA BANHART AND ANDY CABIC BRING THE MAGIC TO TOKYO

If there is one thing I'll say from Friday night, is that Devendra Banhart is a one-of-a-kind performer. He puts his heart and soul into every single song he sings, and makes sure you leave the venue with a smile on your face. It was so awesome to see both Andy Cabic (otherwise known as Vetiver) and Banhart play together in front of such a small crowd, specially since they hadn't toured together in over 10 years. 
I will tell you this, there was something magical about those 13 lightbulbs, two guitars, and two incredible voices. I truly hope I get to see this again soon.





If you missed the Superb Honey-moon Tour Devendra Banhart and Vetiver you can still check it out when they return to Tokyo later this week. Click HERE to see the rest of the dates. 


YOU MAY HAVE MY NUMBER, YOU CAN TAKE MY NAME, BUT YOU'LL NEVER HAVE MY HEART

It took Adele a paycheck worth a few million bucks— hey, it's the official theme song to James Bond! —  to finally release some new music. The song is titled the same as the movie, Skyfall, and although it's not quite what you'd expect from her, it is still pretty good. After all, what can you expect from a James Bond movie theme song anyway?


IT HIT ME LIKE A BEAM OF LIGHT, HIT ME LIKE A HOOK WITH A RIGHT

The Vaccines recently released their new album, Come of Age, and it's sick!! 
Here's one of my favorite tracks off the album,  I Always Knew. Now I'm definitely looking forward to seeing them back in Japan early next year!
