This is for me because I needed to hear it.

Converging In the Quiet

Crystal Stilts – Converging In The Quiet

I don’t know a damn thing about this band other than the fact that they’re from Brooklyn and that I love this fucking song!

Starlight Mints

Starlight Mints – Paralyzed

I had to hear this song about a dozen times before it clicked.

The Walkmen

The Walkmen – On The Water

I don’t think I’ve really loved a Walkmen song since “The Rat,” but I’ve gotta say that “On The Water” is fucken brilliant!

This is the second best video of the year.

You’re a song.

Band Of Horses – The Funeral

I associate a song with just about every single person I know. Yes, even YOU.

Some people are more than a song to me.

I hope you outlast the song and not vice versa.
