music video of the day: "Rapt" by Karen O

by Kate Killet in


"This is about someone who became a habit that was hard to kick."
Karen O. My darling. Thank you. Yes. More. Yes. Fucking yes.
Her solo album Crush Songs is due out September 9th and I'm praying for a tour. 

Obligatory lyric posts below because my girl deserves it... 
Bright as a star be the light
Strobing down on me,
Suddenly I was free,
Let me go on these
Show I can cough I can choke
On this kind of smoke
Off went the switch
Love is soft,
Love’s a fucking bitch
Do I really need
Another habit like you
I really need
Do you need me too
I believe it’s gonna leave me blue
Bright as a star be the light
Strobing down on me
Suddenly I was free
Let me go on these
Show I can cough I can choke
On this kind of smoke
On went the switch
Love is soft
Love’s a fucking bitch
Do I really need
Another habit like you?
I really need,
Do you need me too?
I believe
It’s gonna feel like new

 


music video of the day: "Today More Than Any Other Day" by Ought

by Kate Killet in


Because they just played the Drake and I caught them live for a second times since the release of their fantastic debut record. It's called More Than Any Other Day and it came out on Constellation Records at the end of April. It's really fucking good and even better live. Totally tangled up on purpose and with purpose. Wired, weird and wonderful as heck.

Ought are currently playing a bunch of shows about you shouldn't miss them.
I'm for sure going to their next Toronto show & seeing them a third time this year...
