{THROWBACK} "unwritten"

I was watching the series finale of Pretty Little Liars the other day (who wants to talk with me about it??) and I was charmed when, as the girls walked into their fake prom, Natasha Bedingfield's "Unwritten" came on. This, of course, immediately reminded me of one of my favorite shows of all time -- The Hills.



In case you're looking for some new blogs to follow, might I suggest those of the always lovely Lauren Conrad and Lo Bosworth? And I will leave you with one of my favorite nuggets of truth: Brody is Kim Kardashian's stepbrother. Just think about that for a while.

shut up and dance!

Start off your day with the cutest video mashup of oh so many favorite movie dance scenes -- set to no other than Walk the Moon's "Shut Up and Dance." This video covers all the bases, from classics like Grease and Flashdance to our generation's classics (Save the Last Dance, Center Stage, and She's All That), plus animated darlings like Beauty and the Beast and Happy Feet. It will, no doubt, put you in a good mood for the day.

{IF YOU LIKE} daughter, the xx

(via 1/2/3)
If you like the thoughtful vocals of Daughter or the careful and beautiful instrumentals of the XX, then you should most definitely take a listen to Wilsen. Her music is quiet and sobering, creating a peace in your day that you didn't know you needed.



And she's just as magical live.



Also, her cover of Grimes' "Oblivion" is my new everything.



DC! Wilsen's going to be playing at Rock & Roll Hotel on April 7 -- grab your tickets now!

wild party is my jam

Wild Party is a band that Seth Cohen would love. When I first listened to them I was immediately drawn in because of the sense of familiarity that their music provided. After two listens through their delightful debut album Phantom Pop I finally realized that all the bands I was drawing comparisons to (Tokyo Police Club, Rooney) were posters on Seth Cohen’s wall in The O.C. … and the heavens rejoiced.

Seth Cohen aside, I’m so thankful I discovered this fun band (thanks All Songs!) from San Antonio. Their entire album is the perfect upbeat album full of classic pop and indie rock to transition into Spring. Give it a spin here and listen to some my favorites off the album below.

"When I Get Older"


"Outright"

"gold digger" like you've never heard it before

Where has this cover been my whole life? I have no words (lies, I have lots of words) to describe how sexy, sultry, stunning and badass this reworking of Kanye's "Gold Digger" is. Twin Caverns, you may just be the thing I need to get me through this work day.
