let's talk about sex, bb


one of the topics on Twitter got me thinking yesterday. best sex songs? HMM.

now I've not had a lot (or any) sex, but when I imagine it, with Swedish supermodels, this is what's usually going on in the background:


Jeff Buckley!

"Grace"

I'm not allowed to embed videos, but between that voice and those looks. holy shit! Jeff Buckley will always give me a (metaphorical) erection.

anything off the "Grace" album should get you into the mood. esp. if your significant other is a laydee. guys! listen up!


Broken Social Scene



I would say either this or "Swimmers." shit, anything by BSS really. have you heard their cover of Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart?"

IT'S TIME THAT WE GREW OLD AND DID SOME SHIT

Feist!


mostly, just this song, her cover of the Bee Gees' "Inside and Out":



Gwen Stefani in this video:


"4 in the Morning"

Phoenix (and Air, sometimes)

"If I Ever Feel Better"

Annie



who, let's face it, I want to marry.

The White Stripes



and basically anything French:

Serge G + Jane B and their orgasm song



their daughter's, "The Operation:"


Camille




okay....maybe I'm too easy.

SO WHAT PUTS YOU IN THE MOOD, READERS?

p.s. apologies to Al! I was working on this before I left for MEADVILLE/GOD'S VAGINA this morning and my computer crashed.

  1. whoa great post Britt!!!!!
    And no worries.

    My music for the mood is Labyrinth's "Kathryn."
    Shakira Spanish lyrics versions, "Pepper" from Butthole Surfers, Journey, and most MacDonald's jingles.
    "You can't more for your money because MacDonald's makes it RIGHT!!" I love it.

  4. Love this post!

    MGMT's "Electric Feel." Humping (the air, the wall, another person, a small dog) is imminent.
    "Backstroke" by The Evening Episode. It's like an aural orgasm. Pun very much intended.
    Also, TV On The Radio's "Staring At The Sun" and "Wolf Like Me."

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
