for the first time in ages, i woke up ready to take on the week. no case of the mondays set in today. maybe it’s because the passing of easter and the arrival of april has me feeling lighter. maybe it’s the sunshine. maybe it’s plans for another weekend trip. all i know i’ve wanted to dance all day. to something like this.
smooth criminal // michael jackson
i found this song in the back alleys of youtube last summer and have been obsessed with it ever since. kyla la grange reminds me a bit of florence welch – while they both have distinct sounds, both artists have gorgeous vocals paired with swelling accompaniments. ‘vampire smile’ is dark and romantic; hope you enjoy this acoustic version as much as i do.

fitz & the tantrums have a new single out and i can’t get it out of my head. their debut album, pickin’ up the pieces, was an instant favorite of mine and i’m eagerly awaiting their upcoming record.

monday, monday. i always need a solid playlist to start my week off right and i’ve been digging this track from of monsters and men lately.
