I have discovered quite a lot of interesting things over these last couple of days. Some new songs, bands and videos. But now I get the privilege to share them with you! But where to begin? hmmmm.
I guess I'll start with what I'm most stoked on.
The Antlers have created a beautiful, forlorn video for their (my favorite) song, "Bear"! The band is shown sitting in a wintry, silver forest, clad in all black. Meanwhile, there is a women shown struggling with a carriage with a large black ball. She falls and spills the ball, discouraged until the band members come to her aid. Quite a lovely video.

Secondly, I came upon a band by the name of Warpaint. They are an all-girl band from Los Angeles who create lethargic, mellow music that reveals similarities to Cat Power and Beach House. I was introduced to them on a song called "Billie Holiday", a gorgeous but sad sounding encounter. The vocals are harmonized and soothing as they spell out "Billie Holiday" in a cleverly-made melody. But the intriguing part of this song is the "half-cover" of Smokey Robinson's "My Guy" they incorporate into the middle of the song.
