I’ve been on pins and needles looking out for my copy of Odesza’s new album A Moment Apart since its official release on Friday, and I can finally find some peace now that it’s sitting right next to me, having arrived on my doorstep this morning. The esteemed Seattle duo teamed up with a diverse list of guest talent on the album. I last shared their collaboration with alt soul sensation Leon Bridges. Let’s now dive into track number 10, an utterly enchanting dreamscape featuring anti-folk and indie pop heroine Regina Spektor. Just A Memory is a beautiful flight across night skies, where twinkling stars keep us company as we gaze down at a vast world asleep, in hopes of spotting the one person we’re longing for so deeply. A Moment Apart is available from all major retailers, here. Odesza kicked off their world tour on September 3rd. Find out more about its dates, here.

Regina Spektor – You’ve Got Time

July 11, 2013

Netflix is upping the game on the on demand streaming video scene with another original series. Orange Is The New Black boasts a brand new song by Regina Spektor for it’s theme. You’ve Got Time isn’t as artsy as a lot of Regina’s other work, but it’s a pretty cool track. There’s a very Karen O quality to the rockin’ moments and some Metric quality too within moments that are more pop leaning. Hmm. This reminds me. I still have to watch House of Cards on Netflix! That Kevin Spacey is such an incredible actor.

Time to end the days’ shares (for now) with something beautiful. Kishi Bashi’s wistful A Sunday Smile is a spectacular cover of Beriut with extra layers of lush chamber pop. The fantastic strings on this just take me far away. The expressiveness of the always morphing track is incredible. From the romanticism of the lush strings, it moves into the playfulness of a plucky banjo. The artist behind the complex solo act is K Ishibashi, who’s also the founding member of Jupiter One and tours with Of Montreal and Regina Spektor. Obviously a masterful instrumentalist and producer, I can only imagine how he sounds live. Of course, we must listen to the original Beirut song after that. I must say though, I do miss the horns on the cover. Me and horns. Sigh.

New Tom Odell

February 2, 2013

UK musician Tom Odell is a rising star. And I got to see the guy live last night in San Francisco. He’s immensely talented and wonderfully astute on the piano. Go check him out while you can before he starts playing the big venues. Odell is a treat live. Recorded too, of course. Hold Me is a new preview off his upcoming debut album Long Way Down. It’s more upbeat and more Keane like compared to some of his slower tracks. I even hear some Regina Spektor in there.

OFFICIAL VID: Regina Spektor – How

October 19, 2012

Earlier this week, Regina Spektor released a new video. “How” is the third single and one of many lovely songs from Regina Spektor’s current album What We Saw From The Cheap Seats. In fact, it might be the prettiest song on the album overall. The piano pop ballad is solemn, but gentle and melodic. How times flies. I feel like it wasn’t that long ago I caught this live at Outside Lands 2012, but Treasure Island Music Fest is already past us!

Regina on The Tonight Show

August 18, 2012

I was only able to catch part of Regina Spektor’s set at Outside Lands last weekend from fairly far away, but she was incredible and mesmerizing. There’s no doubt that I must, must, MUST catch her headlining the next time she stops by San Francisco. Last night, she graced the stage of The Tonight Show and put in a heart moving, gorgeous performance of How.

Geez, it’s like there’s an onslaught of Regina Spektor material after a long, painful drought. Here’s the video for Don’t Leave Me (Ne Me Quitte Pas). It’s a cute little video to match the cute little very French ditty off of the brand new album What We Saw From The Cheap Seats.
