It’s November. How did this happen? Wasn’t I just watching New Kids on the Block perform at the New Year’s Eve celebration? Also, I’ve mention NKOTB almost every week in these Tuesday Tunes posts, so it may or may not be foreshadowing of what’s to come. Not this week, though. This week I have two songs that do not include any members who’ve worn acid wash jean jackets whilst performing. I think.
I love this song. That’s really all there is to say. It’s just so sweet and romantic. Unoffensive and all that. Though, if I worked anywhere as slowly as the girl in this video I’m pretty sure I would be unemployed. Angus & Julia Stone are a pair of siblings from Australia with a mighty impressive discography. I’m not going to pretend like I’m familiar with any of their work outside of this song. It’s just so cute!
Conversely, this song is just dance-y and hip. This band confuses me on so many levels, the most notale being that they have two members that go by the names “Panda Bear” and “Geologist.” I took Geology my senior year of college to fulfill a requirement I’d forgotten I needed to graduate, and needless to say it was the worst experience of my life. Thankfully, this song has nothing to do with rocks (do you know how hard it was to restrain myself from making some pun about rock music right there, DO YOU?). It takes a little while to get into it, but once the song takes off, I lose control of my limbs. In a good way.
Tomorrow I’m getting back to basics with the really gorgeous office of one of my favorite women in fashion. In the meantime, do you have any music suggestions for me? I’d like to hold off on posting 80s boy-bands for as long as possible.
