Welcome to ICYSU

So I'm a little slow at this whole "blog" thing, and recently found out what ICYMI meant, very clever guys... so here's my edition of ICYSU - In Case You're Still Up ;) You heard it here first (hopefully.) el oh elz
Here's a few gems that I'm currently digging on at the moment & felt like sharing with y'all! 
P.S. We're almost at 500 Likes over on Facebook, please feel free to keep spreading the word about Let Your Ears Decide. It means a lot! 

Austra - "HOME"
I know, I know... I've already posted about this magnificent song, but I have a good reason as to why I'm talking about it ... again. Today we were graced with the official music video for "Home",  the first single off Austra's sophomore release Olympia, and boy was it a good one. Not only does the video feature EVERY member of the band, but timed in a manner that when each member appeared in the video, their instrumental (or lyrical) contribution to the song started.....yes, I went there in the realm of nerding out on a music video.  Yesterday via Austra's Facebook page we were given a fair warning that the video would be released today, as well as "A simple and intimate concept, we hoped to capture the sadness and longing of the track in one take through a two-way mirror." Simple & intimate indeed. You can pre-order Olympia now on iTunes, Domino Records, or over at Paper Bag Records!  

Marina and the Diamonds & Charli XCX - "JUST DESSERTS"
Right before these two head on tour together, Marina (of Marina and the Diamonds) & Charli XCX released "Just Desserts"earlier today. Tomorrow night (May 2nd) they play in Seattle, Washington & if you're curious to see if they're coming your way - here ya go!
They're both experts in making pop music & writing about the ultimate heartbreak in their own unique way.. but to have both of them on a single track is every girl (or guys) dream. Also, Charli XCX's debut album True Romance was released this past month and take my word for it - for a debut album it's pretty solid from beginning to end.. listen to it on Spotify now! 
P.S. You can download "Just Desserts" for free here!

Young Galaxy - "FEVER"
Through an exchange of e-mails with a friend a few weeks ago, it was brought to my attention that I needed to check out Young Galaxy & i'm glad that I did. I'm a huge fan of their latest studio release Ultramarine that dropped just last week via Paper Bag Records! This is album number 4 for the Montreal 5-piece, and after you listen to it (featured below) I highly recommend checking out their previous albums!

  Young Wonder - "ELECTRIFIED"
Gearing up for the release of their sophomore EP Show Your Bones, Young Wonder was nice enough to let us in on another new song called "Electrified". It's been a solid year since the release of their self-titled debut EP & in less than a week Show Your Bones will be officially here (May 6th) via Feel Good Lost Records!  In case you missed it (or are not familiar with LYED on Facebook) YW released a stellar music video for the first single off SYB called "Time". It's without a doubt one of the best & most impressive music videos (along with "Home" by Austra) released this year, check it out here!
So far this EP is 2 for 2 in my book. :)
