Dec is the Place

Two Lids, 2011.

Welcome back campers. Here are some tidy sensory blips for the benefit of your imagination, and future generations. I seem to be finding new music more and more through movies and TV these days, so here are some of those selections.

Aloe Blacc – I Need A Dollar – The theme song, for the now cancelled HBO show How To Make it In America otherwise known as the Vice Magazine show.

Hoagy Carmichael – Stardust – From the movie and trailer for Mike Mills’ Beginners. One of the better films of the year. This song also fit perfectly with my wedding this year.

Nina Simone – If I Should Lose You – I got this track from a bar scene in the AMC show The Killing. A bleak murder mystery that takes place in rainy Seattle which adds to the overall misery and suffering that every character seems to wear like a noose.

Bon Iver – Michicant - A somewhat more light-hearted? second release, and a great album if not for the John Hughes inspired last track.

Shigeto – Look At All The Smiling Faces - A nice soundtrack for the cold weather that has arrived with rain nowhere to be felt.

The Middle East – Blood – First heard from It’s Kind Of A Funny Story, and more recently in the somewhat surprisingly good Crazy, Stupid Love. The band is from Australia, and comes recommended by the FDA and Consumer Reports.

Bye.
