To your indifference your father left $30,000 and an oak box to shoulder with your three younger brothers.
But you had grown complacently fond of the $-62.38 that reads like a weak groan on bank statement after bank statement.
I am watching you, from…
We’re all in check with when our favorite and well-established artists are releasing new music each year, but some of the greatest surprises often come from bands we just simply didn’t see coming. Today PropertyOfZack is stoked to take the wraps off of our five Artists To Watch In 2014 Discussion. Feel free to reblog with artists that you think are going to take us by storm in 2014 and check out our list below!
If Hop Along releases something this year I will die happy.
« winter city sadness »
this mix is for white skies and chillier days, hand warmers and the 3 year old coat you found in the closet you haven’t worn in years. for fights with your friends in puffs of cool air, you could see your breath and you still don’t feel satisfied. it’s a mix for being sad in the coldest of days, in the biggest of cities, in the middle of winter. made of 13 songs. enjoy!
This is all great.
The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die - Ultimate Steve
The world will destroy me.
Our voices will flood rivers and valleys.
The world will destroy me.
I am the mountains crumbling.
God this year sucked.
Here is a list of things that kept me from crawling under my bed and never coming out.
#6 - Little Big League - These Are Good People
Not a female fronted band, a person-fronted band (Who just happens to look slightly different from the other members)…
Super glad to see I wasn’t the only one with Marietta at the top of my list.
CASA DEL TOP 10 ALBUMS OF ‘13 BUT THE ORDER DOESN’T MATTER.
9. The Albatross // Foxing
I think, if I may speak on behalf of fellow shitty music nerds like myself, we kind of look forward to what our last favorite album of the year will be because it’s usually the thesis to the kind of year it’s been. 2013 was the year I traveled the world, spent a summer falling somewhere between being a teenager again and working like a corporate drone, and tried figuring out how to be an adult human being-like thing in my final months of collegiate learning. Accordingly, I needed an album that sounding like getting my guts beaten out followed by the most sincere hug possible. And, as November began to prove fruitless on that front, Foxing came out of nowhere with a debut record that attacks every emotional hurdle with such force, you’re not sure who deserves the hug more.
Lord knows I hate having to spit out genres that sound close to a band as much as I hate having a concrete Top 10 list at the end of the year (ed. note: I already want to move King Krule’s place on this list), so to say The Albatross attempts mathy emo meeting earnest folk songwriting is about as far as I’ll go into that. Honestly, start with “Bloodhound”. The strings atop pained vocals and choirs should warn you how heartbroken this one’s gonna leave. From there, I don’t really want to spoil this one, so I’ll just leave it suggesting you take the album’s 32 minutes and wonder how these guys somehow tapped into your every insecurity emotionally with such massive beauty lyrically and sonically.
Best songs: “Bloodhound”, “Inuit”, “Rory”
