music you've never heard on a page you can't find

the only (therefore best) hipster music blog of deerfield

Admittedly Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver) didn’t write this himself, but this is exactly how I like him (with the exception of on his song Beth/Rest)- a lot of guitar strumming, semi-clear words, his beautiful voice gravelling through my speakers. I have no idea who John Prine is but this cover reminded me a lot of Fleet Foxes as well.

This is by no means hipster dubstep- Skrillex is really very mainstream…but technically since all of Skrillex’s tools and recordings were stolen at a concert this spring, and he had to restart from nothing, he is very indie and hipster and cool. It sounds totally different from his old stuff and has that nice chopped-off quality on the bass hits that I really like. So, here’s some variety.

Peace,

Passion Pit…Dubstep?!?!?!?!

Not sure if any dubstep fans will be reading this…or any fans at all…but:

I found this incredible and kind of felt like I was tripping out listening to it. It’s not very heavy, but it’s not weak or too electronic either. If you like it you can download it here: http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/2PbmWT/soundcloud.com/abstrack/passion-pit-sleepyhead-abstrack-dubstep-remix

Peace, love, and Harry Potter forever,

Alright- so I’ve kind of been on a Velvet Underground kick lately. It takes a little bit of getting used to, but it starts to grow on you after a little while. From what I’ve seen on this album at least, they really enjoy the whole dark humor thing. Their sound is older, but so is the band. They’ve been around since the mid 60’s. Enjoy!

Found this on We All Want Someone to Shout For,one of the very small number of music blogs I have the energy to follow.  But I like that they have a big mix of stuff.

Anyway, this track is called It’s Real by Real Estate.  A sweet little number with an interesting introductory combination of notes that then repeats itself over and over again redundantly.  But you know, still nice.  I’ll probably keep a look out for their album when it comes out, though I don’t have particularly high hopes of there being anything really stimulating.  Low hopes are hopes none the less.

As a child I went to a Suzanne Vega concert outside at the Botanical Gardens. I think I was about ten. Another guy named Mark Cohn sang there too, and on the way home someone shot into his car and the bullet hit his temple. He didn’t die. Cool story right? I like this song a lot. It’s not at all new and I have no idea if it’s indie, but I like it. And the rest of the music I listen to, I basically found from Broken Deerfield Scene, so I would feel rude posting it here. So here it is, Tom’s Diner by Suzanne Vega.

Listen to it with speakers or with good headphones or in the car or something and hear all of the NOISE. Have a heart! I have next to no idea what she’s really saying, but it’s a dope song and video. Infinity Guitars (also by Sleigh Bells, duh) is really good too. 

Peace,

This song seems uncharacteristic for Miss Flo, but it’s super fun.  Another jump-around-the-kitchen-and-dance.  And even though I know I’m jumping on this wagon a little late, I absolutely love Dog Days Are Over.  Because I saw it on Glee—THERE I said it.

Kind of a creative idea for a video. Enjoy!

I had a party dancing to this in the kitchen while doing the dishes.
