5 Songs You Need To Listen To

by amandajohogan913

New music is something that there is so much of, always changing, sometimes fading into obscurity, but always there. Here are 5 songs that are worth listening to right at this very moment.

Tomorrow it might be different.

1) M83-Steve McQueen

Off of their upcoming album Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming this song brings back the insane dance-y summer hot party vibe that their music is known for. I couldn’t find a version of the song that wasn’t live, but it gives you an idea of what the vibe at their concerts is like.

2) High Highs-Horses

A relatively new band,  this song comes from their new self-titled EP. It has a dreamy quality, something more suited to the upcoming winter months, something more melancholy and beautiful.

3) Feist-How Come You Never Go there

I’ve been listening to this song a lot on the way to work lately–I think it’s because it evokes such a soothing feeling from me, and also because her voice has such an ethereal quality; unique yes, but also like a mixture between Florence Welch and Natasha Khan (Bat For Lashes.)

4) Glass Candy-Warm in the Winter

New age-y and completely fun this song combines summer, winter, and an electronic beat for cutesy sound that reminds me of M83 and Lady gaga.

5) ANR-It’s Around You

Okay, so this song isn’t necessarily new, but it IS something you should be listening to, because the addictiveness of this tune is lost on no one (except for everyone at my Halloween party who wanted me to change it to something “more dance-y, like Britney Spears, but they don’t count.)
