Song Of The Day#58-Hello My Old Heart By The Oh Hello’s

4254669298-1

To be honest, I haven’t listened to this song in about a week. But I thought that it was a good song that people will enjoy.

“The Oh Hellos are Maggie and Tyler Heath, intentionally-independent self-produced music-making siblings hailing from the great state of Texas.”-Taken from the band’s bandpage.

Hello My Old Heart is very much a folk kind of song about seeing your ‘old heart’ again which is pretty much your old love. 

My favourite part is:

nothing lasts forever
some things aren’t meant to be
but you’ll never find the answer
until you set your old heart free

Song Of The Day#57-Animal By Miike Snow

images

I know what you’re thinking. Is this that amazing song called Animal by that super retro sound band? No. It is not Animal by Neon Trees. Like that song, this one is good too but in its own unique way.

Mike Snow is a Swedish indie pop band formed in 2007. The band consists of producing team Bloodshy & Avant (Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg) and Andrew Wyatt. Currently, the band has two albums out. Animal is off of their debut album, Miike Snow.

Animal is the kind of song that gets you pumped in the morning with a beat that sticks with you (literally) throughout the day. What I love about this song is that it instantly puts me in a good mood because the lyrics have that hidden meaning which changes depending on the person. This song has been my alarm clock for the past week because I actually jump up and listen to it and dance. Yes, I know I’m a very cool person.

My Favourite Part is:

There was a time when my world
Was filled with darkness
Then I stopped dreaming now
I’m supposed to fill it up with something

In your eyes I see the eyes of somebody
I knew before, long ago
But I’m still trying to make my mind up
Am I free or am I tied up?

Song Of The Day#56-Beautiful Soul by Noelle Johnson

384263070-1

What a fun song that makes me think about blue skies, sunny days, and happiness. So all around just a very happy day. Even without the lyrics, the song is just too hard to resist with its fast pace notes and sweet melodies.

Noelle Johnson is a folk/indie singer/ songwriter. Beautiful Soul is her first EP that is realised.

My favourite part is:

why are you spending all your time on it
Worrying about things, things that they say to you
You are not too big, and you’re not the ugly little thing
That you think you see across from you in the mirror
Love yourself and it will be one small step, but one giant leap
For woman kind

Song Of The Day#55-Knee Deep By Lydia

Lydia-Devil-200x200

Lydia was the first band that I posted about when I first started this meme. In anticipation for their upcoming album, Devil, I’m going to post another song y this band. I’m also posting this song a day after it was released to the public just because this band that much. Are you going to their North American Tour in the spring? I am. You should too if you know what’s good for you.

Lydia is an indie rock band from Gilbert, Arizona that was formed in 2003. In 2010, the band took a year-long hiatus because of a fight that was between Steve McGraw and Leighton Antelman. Currently, the band has four albums released with a fifth coming up. Knee Deep is off of their upcoming album, Devil.

Knee Deep is just so precious! The band has headed in a new direction, using different types of techno beats. Such an addicting song. I know that it just came out two days ago, but I’ve listened to this song at least a hundred times already.

My favourite part is:

Everything I learned I’ll soon forget it.
You tell me I fucked up well I guess I did then.
Just take me back to that day.

I don’t want to wait, I don’t want to wait, I don’t want to wait.
So I take my time. I take my time.
I don’t want to wait, I don’t want to wait, I don’t want to wait.
So I take my time. I take my time.
But if you stay it might get cold.

Song Of The Day#54-Grace by Captives

cover

If you’re a fan of Seahaven then you will defiantly like this band. Actually, I think if you like most post-hardcore bands that you will like this band too. I know for one that I cannot wait for their full length album to be released. This band has so much potential to do great things.

Captives is a post hardcore band from Eagle Mountain, Utah. “My Eyes Are Open is what radio stations would be playing if they actually had an ear for music. While listening it’s easy to pick up on their rock roots, but the further into a track you get the more layers start to unfold. A lulling baseline might kickstart a song, but by its end emotionally draining vocals are being shouted, eclipsing your first impression and morphing it into an almost transcendental experience of pain and whirling guitar riffs. This album is a deeply emotional journey that will move the listener. It’ll pick you up one moment, make you want to cry the next, and then leave you with a sense of hope for the future.”-Taken from the band’s bandcamp page.


Grace 
is a lovely song that at first, is slow and gently but then quickly speeds up with still gentle vocals and an intense drumming part.

My favourite part is:

Even though I’m young I still feel old. Like a book that’s written, a story told.

I am responsible for your pain, yes I am the disappointing summer rain.

Yes I am the crossing train, yes I am the one you need to entertain.
So we took the time and we took it back. All deaf from hearing my voice crack.

We shouted out to the heaven above, ” Have I lost your love”.

Song Of The Day#53-Drunk Girls By LCD Soundsystem

download

If you have an Ipod/Ipad/Iphone/anything Apple now, you probably have heard of Tap Tap. The amazing game that allows you to listen to your favourite songs and found out about new songs while playing a very addicting game. Tap tap is how I found this song and how I found Fun. The awesome band that has taken over the world thanks to their song, We Are Young. 

LCD Soundsystem was an American-based dance-punk band from New York City. It was fronted by American singer-songwriter and producer James Murphy, co-founder of record label DFA Records. The group released three critically acclaimed albums, LCD SoundsystemSound of Silver and This Is Happening. LCD Soundsystem broke up during 2011, their final show was in April.

Drunk Girls is just a light, fun song about how girls act much differently drunk than boys do when they’re drunk. Girls have the perks and advantages while boys have…well close to nothing when they’re drunk.

My favourite part is:

(Drunk girls)

Just ’cause I’m shallow doesn’t mean that I’m heartless

(Drunk girls)

Just ’cause I’m heartless doesn’t mean that I’m mean


(Drunk boys)

Sometimes love gives us too many options

(Drunk girls)

Just ’cause you’re hungry doesn’t mean that you’re lean

(Drunk girls)

I’ve heard lies that could curdle your heartstrings

(Drunk girls)

A couple truths, maybe burn out your eyes

Song Of The Day#52-Secrets (Hush) By He Is We

heiswe2013_400_400_70

I AM SO FREAKING HAPPY. YOU DO NOT EVEN UNDERSTAND HOW HAPPY I AM RIGHT NOW. Rachel Taylor has rejoined He Is We! YAY! I am so happy for her! Even though I feel kind of bad for Stevie, I feel that the band wouldn’t be as good without Rachel. Thank god she’s back on board! As for Trevor, No one is completely sure if he will be on board with He Is We because he has another project going on. I hope he stays and does this new album!

He Is We is an indie pop band from Tacoma, Washington. This duo started playing music in 2008. As of september 2012, lead vocalist, Rachel Taylor was forced to resign because she was diagnosed with ankylosis spondylitis. This disease is when your joints and bones in your spine join together (extremely painful). Stevie Scott was the lead singer of He Is We until Rachel rejoined the band. Currently, they have one album and one EP and are working on their second album. Secrets (Hush) is off of their up coming album.

Since this is only a teaser, I can’t really post the lyrics or my favourite part. But I am very pumped for this new album! You should be too!
