Groove Tunes

What songs make you feel good? The sun is shining, the city is moving and I'm chillin' in my room, so I ask again, what songs make you feel good? Here are a couple of jams I've had on repeat today.

Department of Eagles is the collaboration of Daniel Rossen (Grizzly Bear) and his NYU roommate Fred Nicolaus (who produced The Killers' Hot Fuss). An active duo since 2000, Rossen didn't join Grizzly Bear until '04 when Nicolaus was tied up with work. Over the years Nicolaus and Rossen would email each other song ideas, snippits and continue to make music - much of which Rossen felt was too personal for Grizzly Bear. This brings us to the long awaited In Ear Park which released quite recently and has quickly become a contender for my favorite album of the year. I can not recommend this album enough, neither can I praise Tobacco's Fucked Up Friends enough. The albums speak for themselves.

Just three years ago TV On The Radio played Coachella, not to mention the most incredible rendition of "Ambulance" I could ever imagine, to a nearly empty Mojave tent - all eyes were on Imogen Heap. Now just a blink of an eye later what was once a grossly under-appreciated band from Brooklyn has become our nation's independent royalty. Still sticking to NY grassroots I have only grown respect for TVOTR as time as passed and with their release of Dear Science it is safe to say that nothing has changed...except the music...for the better.

Both of these albums are a must own, please do not hesitate on picking these up for your collection.
