Oscar Isaac - Hang Me, Oh Hang Me

Sound: Folk

How I Feel When Listening to It:

I didn’t think I liked Inside Llewyn Davis when I saw it. And then I thought about it a lot the next day. And the next day. And the next day.

Then I got the soundtrack. And I listened to it. And the next day. And the next day. And the next day.

I guess I loved it. I think the movie hurt my feelings. It showed talent and how sometimes success just isn’t in the cards. And that hurt.

This song is wonderful. 

Ellie Goulding - Heartbeats (Cosmonaut Grechko edit)
Sound: Indie, Folk, Pop, Chiiiiill, Cover, Soft Female Vocalist

The Knife made a crazed dance track. Jose González turned it into a romantic slowjam. And now Ellie Goulding bridged the gap, with the help of Cosmonaut Grechko. The female vocals, back beat, and male/female tag team from The Knife’s side. The smooth melody and guitar from Jose González’s side. The track is great. Take a listen, or 5.

For all you visual people, I venn’d it:

James Vincent McMorrow - We Don’t Eat
Sound: Singer/Songwriter, Folk, Piano, Country, Soulful Male Vocals

You guys! Why did no one tell me about James Vincent McMorrow? Finally Tunage stepped up and told me. 

To say I have had this song on repeat wouldn’t be fair to repeat. Usually repeat gets a coffee break or a union mandatory 30 minute lunch. I have given no suck luck to my repeat button. Sorry about that, Petey. (I named my repeat button.)

This song hits my sweet spot of a piano and drum combo. Then it hits my other sweet spot of letting the strings come in and take this to some next level shit. It builds beautifully.

His album (Early in the Morning) had a few more incredible tracks:  ”If I Had A Boat" & "Sparrow And The Wolf.” He does a great job of towing the line between country and singer/songwriter. Listen now!
