Meet Dallas' Conner Youngblood and Download A Few Other New Treats.
We're taking a break from themed playlists this week to get some new music to you. None of these would be a bad accompaniment to the sunny, breezy weather we're expecting this weekend after today's rain. So right-click on these links, download the songs, pop them in your figurative tape decks and enjoy.
“Proportions” – Conner Youngblood
Dallas' Youngblood is back again with his latest single. He's about to finish school, which I'm assuming means he'll have a lot more time to devote to music, so look out for new works in the months ahead.
“How Come You Never Go There (Clock Opera Remix)” – Feist
As far as I'm concerned, English band Clock Opera can do no wrong. They make beautiful melodic pop and are just total expert stylists, as they demonstrate on this Feist remix.
“Warrior” – Mark Foster, A-Trak, Kimbra
Mall retailer Journeys has been sponsoring a music gimmick for the past year or so where they commission three separate artists for a collaboration, and then use the songs in their ads. This one is the best so far — 90 percent of the reason being that it features DJ master A-Trak, Foster the People's Mark Foster and my future best friend, Kimbra.
“Forgotten (TEEEL Remix)” – Selebrities
Do you like dream pop? Look no farther than boutique label Cascine, whose Selebrities are one of the acts leading the label's extremely solid pack.
“King of the Decade” – White Fence
All I know about White Fence is that they were the band I ended up really loving after my horrendously awkward experience at the Weekly Tapedeck showcase at 35 Denton. Honestly, though, I don't think I need to know much more, as the music speaks for itself.
