Monday Playlist: Songs I Love

Source: Rock On Philly

As we start the week leading up to Valentine’s Day I thought I’d serve up an l-word themed playlist without being too sentimental (at least I’ll try not to be). It will serve as a love letter to some of the songs that I’ve fallen in love with over the past couple years. Some of the songs are well-known, some are obscure, some are old and some are new, but all have been listened to countless times.

I’ll kick things off with a new one from Father John Misty‘s forthcoming album I Love You, Honeybear. A true departure from ...

Tuesday night with Sam Smith caused utter chaos around the Liacouras Center at Temple University‘s campus as fans of all ages fought their way in out of the cold. Once inside and cozied up, the show began with a huge curtain with a mirrored picture of the night’s most popular crooner.

Smith began singing “Life Support” from his latest album In The Lonely Hour before the curtain dropped to the floor, leaving the audience wondering for a moment where his otherworldly voice could be coming from. He was raised high up in the middle of the stage ...

We were treated to a number of Valentine’s Day releases this year, but one that got lost in yesterday’s shuffle was Peking Duk‘s “High.” The Australian production duo’s latest track is a bright, high-energy number that strangely reminds us of an electro-pop Dandy Warhols. Part of that is thanks to Nicole Millar, whose vocals are front and center in this one. Give “High” a listen below.

Here’s one for the cynics, the heartbroken, or just the Really-Over-Valentine’s-Day crowd. New York’s soulful ATG favorites Wet and remix mastermind Branchez make a good couple, but not for long, if this track has anything to say about it. Branchez’ production underscoring Kelly Zutrau’s atmospheric vocals make this remix a clean, sharp antidote for all the twee filling the airwaves every February 14th. Give the remix a listen below.
