been a fan of Ellie Goulding ever since i heard Starry Eyed last June. Under the Sheets is the obvious standout (and gosh the Chiddy Bang track that samples it is fab), but the rest of Lights is pretty darn fantastic, too.

Every Time You Go
Wish I Stayed
I’ll Hold My Breath

oooh and:
Ellie covering The Temper TrapSweet Disposition  
Passion Pit – Sleepyhead (Starsmith remix feat. Ellie)

Now I love Kid Cudi, but i was a little worried Day N Nite would get overplayed and then just blow over. Little Boots put out a fantastic cover a while back, and Chiddy Bang just dropped their take on the track.  I ❤ Chiddy, so obviously I’m digging it, but honestly, i do sort of miss Cudi’s catchy hook.  The Philly boys’ remix is well worth listening to, though: the lyrics are fantastic and i cant wait until they get their album out.  On a whim, I wrote their drummer, Zach Sewall yesterday, and he said theyre working hard to get the Kung Fu EP out this summer. If you’re in the philly area, go check them out, seriously. i think they’re playing at Swarthmore this weekend (hilarious, right?).

Chiddy Bang – Day N Nite
i just realized what they rapped early on in Because (ft. Radiohead):
top floor yeah / think i might move in / ivy league writing / tell me what upenn
❤ (or maybe i dreamed it)
 MIA ft Kovas – Hit That
MIA sounds like missy in this short little track. i didnt want to like it, bc i feel like it just has too many references / beats from paper planes, but ugh, it’s catchy. and i love the lyrics: we fly like paper, get high like planes, smokin pineapple express til it fries my brain
NERD ft Santogold Santigold- Soldier
I cant believe Santi had to drop the O in her name.  Still, crazy exciting track.

Mickey Factz – Sensibility 
the first song i’ve heard referencing the economic slowdown (crisis? giant implosion? abyss?)

Chiddy Bang – Because (ft Radiohead) 
Sooner or Later
–> fantastic indie rappers from philly (i think they might actually be Drexel students) and chock full of great beats and smart lyrics. there’s even one chris brown grammy night reference. (too soon?) oh, and there’s a track sampling Tom Waits that absolutely sick: Ice Cream Man
(how have i never gotten into Waits? his voice has been described as sounding “like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car.” apt? yes. awesome? absolutely.)

and cause i’m [recently] obsessed:
Fanfarlo – Luna
(say what you will about the Beirut / Arcade Fire similarities, they freaking rock)
