Tunes: 2012.02.08

Happy Friday!

Here are some tunes that I’m digging lately.  The first few are a bit bumpier and then I get into some slower, dreamy stuff near the end of the list.

Enjoy the snow today if you’re in the northeast!  Wahoo, hit the ski slopes!

I adored this song in the summer.  Just got reminded of it today!

3. Rihanna feat. Mikky Ekko – Stay (Erol Sabadash remix)

4. Little Daylight – Overdose

I believe these are the same peeps who did the awesome remix of Edward Sharpe’s Man on Fire (#5).

5. Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros – Man on Fire (Little Daylight remix)

6. Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros – Fiya Wata

Plain and simple: beautiful.

7. Dave Matthews Band – Mercy

I’m getting sentimental on this playlist eh?

8. Aaron Dessner & Justin Vernon – Big Red Machine

This is off the wicked Dark was the Night album.

9. Bon Iver – Backett, WI

Also off of Dark was the Night.  I love anything with Justin Vernon, what a man.

10. Feist – Cicadas and Gulls
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjMBzRpC5NM
For a while I thought this may be the most beautiful song ever written.  It still might be but I’m too indecisive to make such a bold claim at 25 years of age.  Her voice is undeniably angelic here though.
