There are few singer/songwriters that are able to craft such thought provoking, mood inducing, all together amazingly composed music treats that are Ms. Apple's songs. She will forever be (in my book) one of those women who I would give my left leg to see live. So, since I didn't get chance to see her when she was in New York recently, I've been filling that void in my heart with youtube videos of her performance. Here is a video of Fiona performing "Anything We Want;" an unreleased track from her upcoming album 'The Idler Wheel is wiser than the Driver of the Screw, and Whipping Cords will serve you more than Ropes will ever do'
The Sound of Arrows have blown my mind a little bit; I may be obsessed and that doesn't happen very often. The UK duo released their 'epic' debut LP back in November; a masterpiece of synthy pop music for any mood. Their video for "Magic" may be on of the cutest things I've seen in a long time. Take the time to listen and jam out. They're remixes are amazing as well. Enjoy...
The Sound of Arrows - "Conquest"

I posted a track from Miss Banks about a month ago in my x-mas playlist. She deserves her own post. Enjoy.

Lana Del Rey has exploded onto the music scene within the past few months. Her LP 'Born to Die' drops January 31st but "National Anthem," a track off the album, has leaked onto the web and already gone viral. What is it with this big lipped beauty? Is she just going to be another Ke$ha? All I know is that between 'Video Games,' 'Off to the Races,' and 'National Anthem,' I sure am liking what I'm hearing thus far and I can't wait to hear more. Here's to Lana. Enjoy.
