freshvibesmonday #4

Something Fresh, Something Old, Something Covered, Something Bold (that one is for you Lana Del Rey). ENJOY! 
BEACH HOUSE - The Hours
In honor of Bloom OFFICIALLY being released into the real world tomorrow on Sub Pop records, enjoy another track by them that will do nothing but astound your mind & body. Be sure to pick up this album that apparently matches the title, and come on - IT'S BEACH HOUSE. In "The Hours" I definitely receive a vibe that reminds me of "Master of None", a track from their self-titled first album that remains as one of my favorites to this day. 
ICONA POP - I Love It
After I found out that Charli XCX wrote this track for Icona Pop, I had even more of a desire to check it out. If you're looking for electronic dance-pop, then this might be a perfect fit. Click on the link below to download it for free!

SUPERHUMANOIDS - Too Young For Love
You can consider myself a new fan of Superhumanoids as of a few weeks ago, and i've definitely developed a liking for them the more I listen to them. I get a vibe that blends White Sea & Savoir Adore together that makes for the perfect summer day.
NEW YOUNG PONY CLUB - You Used To Be a Man
After I first heard about New Young Pony Club in high school from a classmate (back in the MySpace days to be exact). They're an English electronic band from London who's own take on their music is "We marry the dance ethic with the pop ethic, and make something that you can dance to and sing along to". If this is the first time you've heard the words "New Young Pony Club", then do yourself a favor and listen to the track "Ice Cream". 
Bands to check out if you dig NYPC: Black Kids & The Go! Team.
LANA DEL REY - Goodbye Kiss (Radio 1 in the Live Lounge)
For those of you who aren't aware, "Goodbye Kiss" is originally a track by Kasabian. I really appreciate how LDR is able to execute a track by still keeping a classic mood, but her ability to make it sound like this track was released much earlier then September of last year. You can access the original track on their latest album Velociraptor, or feel free to check out a live version of Kasabian performing "Goodbye Kiss" below.
So, what do you think? Did Lana Del Rey's cover transform it into a different sound that allows you to appreciate both tracks as separate gems? Did this cover not stand a chance to the original from the English rock band whose been turning heads on & off since 1997? 
CRYSTAL FIGHTERS - Earth Island
Just enough of a trip to take your sober mind into an incoherent paradise without the comedown. This group definitely executes electronic dance beats but shakes up the sound with cultural influence (British/Spanish). Needless to say they're what I like to call a "mixed drink".
