Heard two songs recently that were really arresting for different reasons. You've probably already heard 'em, but in case you haven't...
Beach House - Gila
This song is so gorgeous. I feel like a baby in front of the stove. I want to touch it so badly, but it hurts. It officially comes out in February I think (?) on a record called Devotion.
Barr - Context Ender
Favorite song I've heard this year. Calling all psych bands using the word healing to describe your music... take some notes from Mr. Fowler. This song really has a healing/empowering effect because it taps into these humiliatingly human expressions.
