Ready, ready? Lately, I’ve been drowning in good music. It’s not a bad problem to have, but it builds up until I get this menacing posse of tracks scheming on my desktop. As it grows larger and larger, the intimidation factor gets to me. Loose ends post, right? Here we go.
Hit the jump for lots of music…
We’ve been talking a lot about Wiz Khalifa lately, and a lot about Ellie Goulding (look, we interviewed her). So why not put some Wiz in some Goulding and see what happens? Erm… Shoutout to DJ Fergie Ferg.
This one will be appearing on DDot‘s Show Of Hands mixtape and Spitta’s Muscle Car Chronicles. Both out this month. Jets, dumbass.
Sam Friend is from Miami, but he’s got a down-to-earth indie rock sound full of life and energy. This one is from his album Lady Madly – he’s currently back and forth between MIA and NYC recording his next album.

The mysterious Swedish duo dropped a new one with little information, but who needs information when you’ve got beautiful, ghostly Swedish pop, complete with a Swedish (I think?) rap section towards the end? Nobody. Nobody needs information. More jj here.

Brooklyn based singer/songwriter Jon Bell has a folksy, mellow, soft tone. It’s the kind of stuff that’s great to listen to late at night with your headphones on. It is not the kind of stuff that should be included in a post with “Brinks”, but Pigeons and Planes, right? Right. If you’re a fan of Sufjan or Iron & Wine you might want to give this a shot.

Shoutout to the Shoutbox!! (It’s that little box where you can chat, on the right side of the blog.) You guys have been raving about these guys, and believe it or not, I listen to you crumbs. Mostly, you are stupid and have horrible suggestions – “Check me out, me and my uncle made a beat and put Kayne West raps on it”. So bad, dude, quit your life. But sometimes, you know what you’re talking about. You were right about this one. Credit to We’ve Got The Jazz.

Here’s a new one from Sondre Lerche from his upcoming self titled album, due June 7th (My birthday! Send me shit!). I’ve always liked Sondre for his melodies, but this isn’t the strongest I’ve heard from him.
