Lazy Eye//Silversun Pickups

My favorite part is when he screams, “locked and loaded” ~sigh~

*2006, Carnavas

I’ve been waiting
I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life
But it’s not quite right

And this ‘real’
It’s impossible, if possible, at whose blind word
So clear but so unheard

I’ve been waiting
I’ve been waiting for this silence all night long
It’s just a matter of time

To appear sad
With the same old decent lazy eye fixed to rest on you
Aim free but so untrue

Everyone’s so intimately rearranged
Everyone’s so focused clearly with such shine

Everyone’s so intimately prearranged
Everyone’s so focused clearly with such shine

Locked and loaded
Still the same old decent lazy eyes fixed through your gaze
That’s why I said I relate
I said we really need to fight to relate

It’s the room, the sun, and the sky
The room, the sun, and the sky

I’ve been waiting
I’ve been waiting for this moment

 

Seasons (Waiting On You)//Future Islands

I luv Future Islands and I’m obsessed with this jazzy funky remix of their song, Seasons (Waiting On You) by BADBADNOTGOOD. I’m not one that’s too keen on remixes but this one is pretty amazing.

aaand who can forget the original. Their performance on Letterman is classic. I swear, every time I hear this song I just want to dance like him. Have you tried? It’s a friggn’ workout!

*2014, Singles

Seasons change
And I’ve tried hard just to soften you
Seasons change
But I’ve grown tired trying to change for you

Cuz I’ve been waiting on you
I’ve been waiting on you
Cuz I’ve been waiting on you
I’ve been weighing on you

As it breaks, the summer will wake
But the winter will wash what is left, of the taste
As it breaks, the summer will warm
But the winter will crave what has gone
Will crave what has all
Gone away

People change
But you know some people never do
You know–when people change
They gain a peace, but they lose one too

Cuz I’ve been hanging on you
I’ve been weighing on you
Cuz I’ve been waiting on you
I’ve been hanging on you

(Chorus)

I’ve been waiting on you… 

 

Totally hooked.

Thanks to A Cup of Jo, I am now addicted to listening to the true-crime podcast on Serial. If you like watching or reading crime novels like I do YOU WILL LIKE THIS.

It’s Baltimore, 1999. Hae Min Lee, a popular high-school senior, disappears after school one day. Six weeks later detectives arrest her classmate and ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, for her murder. He says he’s innocent – though he can’t exactly remember what he was doing on that January afternoon. But someone can. A classmate at Woodlawn High School says she knows where Adnan was. The trouble is, she’s nowhere to be found.

This is a true story. What are your thoughts? Do you think Adnan is innocent or guilty? I keep teeter-tottering. All I know is this case is bizarre.

Movin’ On Up//Primal Scream

*1991, Screamadelica

I was blind, now I can see
You made a believer out of me
I was blind, now I can see
You made a believer out of me

I’m movin’ on up now
Getting out of the darkness
My light shines on
My light shines on
My light shines on

I was lost, now I’m found
I believe in you, I’ve got no bounds
I was lost, now I’m found
I believe in you, I got no bounds

I’m getting out of darkness
My light shines on
I’m getting out of darkness
My light shines on

Baby//Devendra Banhart

*2009, What Will We Be

Baby, I finally know what I’m going after
I’m learning to let in all the laughter
Holy moly, you’re so funny
You crack me up, you crack me up
Look out for dreams that keep returning
‘Cause magic in the whim yearning
You feel it, you want it
The way I want you, babe
Traveling by choo-choo train
We know where
We just don’t know when
Like some everlasting onion, that I love
Never heard a better bad joke said out loud
You flip, flap and I wild out
Can you believe it?
I can’t believe it but it’s true
You’re giving eighty billion years of giggling
A whole new world to live in
But this one’s real, this one’s real
This one’s real Like a bow-tied kangaroo
You be one and I’ll be one too
Play it goofy or play it cool
I don’t mind

Everything that happened
You know it don’t mean a thing to us
‘Cause so much is going to happen

Because you showed me
A sunset overflowing
But who cares where it’s going
As long as you’re next to me

Allah-Las

I love Allah-Las and their groovy ’60s garage rock, surfer sounds. I’ve never seen them play live before so I’m super stoked to check them out tomorrow night.

Arctic Monkeys Cover Tame Impala’s “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards”

Um yes please! Alex can sing the ABCs and I’ll still swoon. I think he did a decent cover of Tame Impala’s perfect song.

Happy Monday guys, if you live in LA like me you know it’s going to be a scorcher. Stay cool ☼

It feels like I only go backwards, baby
Every part of me says, “go ahead”
I got my hopes up again, oh no, not again
Feels like we only go backwards, darling

I know that you think you sound silly when you call my name
But I hear it inside my head all day
When I realize I’m just holding onto the hope that maybe
Your feelings don’t show

It feels like I only go backwards baby
Every part of me says, “go ahead”
Then I got my hopes up again, oh no, not again
Feels like we only go backwards, darling

The seed of all this indecision isn’t me, oh no
‘Cause I decided long ago
But that’s the way it seems to go
When trying so hard to get to something real
To feel

It feels like I only go backwards darling
Every part of me says, “go ahead”
I got my hopes up again, oh no, not again
Feels like we only go backwards, darling

It feels like I only go backwards baby
Every part of me says, “go ahead”
I got my hopes up again, oh no, not again
Feels like we only go backwards, darling

It feels like I only go backwards baby
Every part of me says, “go ahead”
I got my hopes up again, oh no, not again
Feels like we only go backwards, darling
