I know I don't usually blog on Fridays, but because I've been covering Christmas albums all month you've been missing out on all the other great music!
Well, I'm sure you haven't been missing out. But I haven't been able to share the non-holiday tunes I'm bumping and that, friends, is a travesty.
So here are a few quick tracks that I can't get enough of right now:
Gary Clark, Jr. - You Saved Me
I've been listening to Gary Clark, Jr. for several weeks now thanks to Certain Someone. You have GOT to check this kid out. He's extremely versatile. His album, 'Blak and Blu' proves that with every track. He jumps from Black Keys-esque rock to Maxwell-ish R&B/Soul to down-home blues and back again. My absolute favorite track is 'You Saved Me'. It sounds so sexy and you can't help but groove to it. Ugh. Love.
Mikky Ekko - Pull Me Down
Christopher sent me this song and the first night I heard it I played it on repeat all night. It's so sweet and atmospheric it basically rocks me to sleep through sound.
The Neighbourhood - Sweater Weather
This morning I could see my breath in the SoCal winter air. It's actually COLD.
"But Doriean," you say "It doesn't really get cold in southern California!"
Screw you, it's effing cold.
This song is a flirty good time that somehow makes me feel a little bit warmer.
There you go! Some sexy, non-holiday earsnacks to set your weekend off right. Enjoy!
