    Andy Williams - Moon River

    Andy Williams died yesterday, Sept. 25 at 84. 'Moon River' is most famously associated with him.



      Recently got the new Passion Pit album as well as the Imagine Dragons album. Both pretty good, but nothing crazy (and both sorta the mainstream alternative that's popular these days).



        "I didn't think he was going to sing "Moon River" and then BAM! second encore!"

        -Nelson Muntz



          Mad Men is where the good tunes were at:



            Stuck in my head today : Of Monsters and Men - Little Talks.




              I've been listening to a piece by Brahms I'm doing for my university chorus. "Schicksalslied." So powerful.



                @hornsup: New Passion Pit album!? Jeez how did I miss that. I was playing "Manners" non stop a few months before the new album was released so I haven't been listening to them much recently. Time to go check it out!



                  Like most people, I don't care for Kanye West's personality. That said, I won't deny he has made some great songs.

                  The video (directed by Spike Jonze and Kanye West) is a bit dark and wicked, which I think pairs great with the song. Not to mention, I think it is one of the best rap instrumentals of the past decade or more.

                  Kanye West - Flashing Lights





                    Makes two of us. I cannot stop listening to that song (and the album as a whole).


                    I feel the same way, I didn't even listen to My Dark Twisted Fantasy until last month because he's so insufferable. Hate to say it but goddamn is that a good CD.

                    That said, currently listening to Jay-Z "Diamond is Forever". Seeing him next month in Brooklyn, so I'm pretty pumped.



                      In the last two weeks I got the new Dave Matthews Band and the new Mumford and Sons albums. Both are beyond solid.



                        Frank Ocean - Swim Good




                          iTunes Festival is pretty fantastic, in my opinion.

                          Several great artists and bands are part of this year's including Ellie Goulding, The Killers, Mumford & Sons, Muse, Alicia Keys, Ed Sheeran, Lana Del Rey, and many more.

                          Check it out here (if you have iTunes):

                          Currently listening to the Lana Del Rey set:




                            New Mumford & Sons album. It's super good.

                            @Jessy - that's been stuck in my head all day too!



                              @Shift -- yeah, it snuck up on me too. I think it came out in July and I hadn't heard much about it. The reason I actually found out about it was that Doritos Taco Taco Bell commercial with the various photos of the tacos... I thought the song was good and thought it sounded like PP... Shazamed it and turns out that song is on the album.



                                Really liking this one lately:

                                Of Monsters and Men - Little Talks (grooveshark link)

                                Sort of reminds me of Mumford and Sons

                                EDIT: Crap. Jessy beat me to it. Here's another to make up for that:

                                Electric Guest - This Head I Hold - heard this as an intro to a wedding reception and really liked it
