Five Fall Singles


St. Vincent – “Cruel”

Opening with an eerie orchestral and choral sound, “Cruel” builds up a beat and makes for a great song. St. Vincent’s voice and the reputable guitar shreds are something you must respect. And if you watch the video, you have to dig those creepy suburban family vibes, right?

Lana Del Rey – “Blue Jeans”

Could I not love this song more? Lana Del Rey’s tangy voice makes a perfect ballad. You kind of wish you could eat her voice. And if you think the start-up is too slow, just wait until about 45 seconds to fall into Del Rey’s trap.

M83 – “Midnight City”

If you happened to be listening to a concert of the world’s most talented and musical robots, you would probably be listening to the opening of M83’s “Midnight City”. And Anthony Gonzalez’s voice sounds like it jumped off a time machine from the ‘80s. That’s a good thing.

Florence and the Machine – “Shake it Out”

We already have come to know and appreciate the music of Florence and her supposed Machine. The group’s second single, “Shake It Out”, from their new album, “Ceremonials”, lives up to the band’s already almost-perfect reputation. Another well produced track from a good band.

Lana Del Rey – “Video Games”

Lana Del Rey (again! She’s that good!) produces a spellbinding single titled “Video Games”. She takes your brain and possess it with crazy thoughts of love and nostalgia and everything that’s happy. It’s definitely worth a listen.
