{PLAYLIST} halloween 2014

Happy Halloweeeeeen, you halloweenies! We love this spooky scary holiday around these parts (as evidenced by our Halloweens of past, found here and here and here), and this year is no different. But what is different is that we're narrowing our focus to just wolves. Move over, skeletons -- when it comes to Halloween creatures, wolves just may be the spookiest.

Press play below for some wolf-inspired jams, including the classic "Werewolf Bar Mitzvah":

{PLAYLIST} best of october 2014

October was a busy one for us! With the changing of the leaves came new music and new concert correspondents in our life. In October, we:
some october favorites from instagram
And in October, we jammed to:

"Take Me Back" - Paperwhite
We may have missed this duo at CMJ, but we cannot get enough of the few songs they've released.
"Reckless Love" - Sean McConnell
When someone sounds like Jason Isbell and Matt Hires, you know I'll love him.
"Flashed Junk Mind" - Milky Chance
This has been a fall favorite that we've been craving almost as much as PSLs this month.
"Nowhere to Run" - My Brothers and I 
Brother band = automatic love.
"One More" - Elliphant, MØ
Whenever I've needed an extra dose of "cool" this month, this song did the trick.
"Rolling in the Deep" - Aretha Franklin
Oh me, oh my, I just cannot get over this cover.
"Warm Foothills" - Alt-J
This beautiful jam off Alt-J's latest album is too beautiful and calming
"Billie Jean" - The Civil Wars
One of my favoritest covers. Ever.
"Awakening"- Aurora
This 17-year-old Norwegian took us by wonderful surprise at CMJ and we can't wait to hear more from her!
"Crazy" - Nashville Cast
Favorite song ever. And this cover by Juliette Barnes is incredible.

{THROWBACK} "i put a spell on you"

Happy (almost) Halloween you goblins and ghouls!

Did you guys know that She & Him did a cover of this song?? No? Me either! Until now...

a comment on the new one direction video for "steal my girl"

The other day I received the following gchat from Kristen:

Kristen: swear to god, and this is a sentence i never thought i'd type before, but i think the sumo wrestler we met is in the new one direction video

Turns out, she's totally correct! The sumo wrestler we met years ago at sushi and sake event at Living Social's 918 F Street (RIP) stars in the new, ever so ridiculous One Direction video "directed" by non other than Danny DeVito. Watch the video below then click ahead to see the photographic evidence!

Click ahead for confirmation that we are now only one degree of separation from these boys.
