new music for the new year

Thanks to Christmas, and stocking stuffers in the shape of iTunes’ gift cards, I get to start off the new year with new music. I could use the money to buy a whole album of a favorite artist, but I much prefer taking a chance on music that, based on 30-second previews, sounds kind of interesting. This year’s spree includes a lot of solid beats, mostly alternative, but with a little Disneymania thrown in for pizazz.

I mean, why not?

1]  Intro – The xx

2]  Can You Tell – Ra Ra Riot

3]  Horchata – Vampire Weekend

4]  Only You (Imogen Heap Mix) – Joshua Radin

5]  Love Lost – Temper Trap

6]  Nostrand – Ratatat

7]  Good Ol’ Fashion Nightmare – Matt & Kim (also, awesome little kinetic typography vid)

8]  Little Baby Pines – Sunbears!

9]  Kiss the Girl – Colbie Caillat
