F-f-f-favorites of the week!

Hello gentle readers,

We now bring you what I'm sure all (five) of you have been waiting for*...our favorite picks for this week! Oh yes. It is time.


WOW BEIRUT, quite possibly the most unique band of today. The band's amazing Eastern European-esque sound weaves a brass-ukulele-piano-percussion-and now electronic mix together effortlessly.

The following is my formula to describe the new Beirut double album, March of the Zapotec/Realpeople Holland:

1 part March of the Zapotec [19-piece Mexican mariachi band + Beirut recording in Oaxaca = beautiful and classic music that seems to defy categorization]

"The Akara" - Beirut
"La Llorona" - Beirut

1 part Realpeople Holland [synths/electronic experimentation + Beirut mastermind Zach Condon crooning = OH MY GAWD]

"Venice" - Beirut
"My Night with the Prostitute from Marseille" - Beirut

Supah fine music!


Find the speakers nearest to you. Got them, good? Now turn them up loud. Crank up the bass (trust me, having the furniture in your room rattle is a good thing).

Now listen to these tunes from Goldfrapp.

"Happiness" - Goldfrapp
"Ride a White Horse" - Goldfrapp

You're welcome.

*Thom would like to add that she extended the deadline of the poll on the right. So vote! Confirm your existence to us!

  1. Few universities have a better reputation worldwide than Oxford. It is England’s oldest and bright youngsters aspire to either taking their undergraduate degrees there or to do post graduate study having graduated from elsewhere. | | | | |
