The four fabulous Frenchmen of Phoenix gave us a lil prezzy today in the form of the title track from their new album “Ti Amo” due out next month! This is the second song they’ve released from the album, following the first release “J-BOY”. I’m biased here because Phoenix is my favorite band but both of these songs are blowing my mind. Out of the two “Ti Amo” has my heart with its dancey beat and the lyrics, trés sexy! Open your legs..I mean EARS ;p and listen to the song below and get excited because we will have that glorious album in our hands in just four weeks! And while you’re waiting head here to pre-order it! Woo!
It feels like it’s been AGES since Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter (aka Phantogram) started teasing that they were working on something with Outkast rapper Big Boi on Instagram in the way of very promising photos with not much to the captions other than “in the works” and “coming soon” (not soon enough Sarah and Josh, not soon enough). Pure torture is what those pictures were. Not only do I love every piece of music Phantogram has delivered to my eardrums, but then there’s Outkast. Oh Outkast, a very important piece of the puzzle that is the soundtrack to my youth..you feel me? (Of course you do).
Today Death Cab released their fourth single from their upcoming album Kintsugi [pre-order here] , due out March 31st on Atlantic Records. The track is called “Little Wanderer” and it’s a sweet yet sad account of being in love with someone who is far away. Benjamin Gibbard is such a great story teller. When I closed my eyes and listened to this song I could see the story play out on the inside of my eyelids. Poor Ben having trouble with network connections and opposite sleeping schedules trying to stay in touch with his “little wanderer” who is away on a grand adventure while he stays home, being quietly supportive, and waits for her “but someone’s gotta be the lighthouse and that someone’s gotta be me”. So many movies come to mind: Going the Distance, Like Crazy, and Boys & Girls. And in most of these movies there’s almost always resentment which isn’t so present in this song when he sings “you’re my little wanderer, won’t you wander back to me” and “standing tall on your horizon, guiding you home to me” who knew Death Cab could be so romantic?
With the closing line “when our eyes meet passed security, we embrace in the baggage claim, when we kiss in the baggage claim” I cant help but think of the iconic end scene of Garden State…
“Little Wanderer” is my second favorite thus far from the new album which I never thought I’d say after hearing “No Room in Frame” wand “Black Sun which are both incredible too. Now that I’ve rambled it’s time for YOU to listen to the track and see how you feel about it. Check it out below and I hope all my fellow music lovers out there have a great Monday!

I think by now you all know how I feel about Death Cab and their upcoming album Kintsugi (which drops in just 35 days!). You’ve also hopefully by now heard their first single Black Sun from the album…which let’s just say was INCREDIBLE. Well music loving friends, Death Cab decided to give us a present today! Exciting I know. This present comes in the form of their next single from Kintsugi titled “No Room in Frame” which shocker (not really) is UHmazing! Check it out below and let me know what you think!

This last couple of weeks have been crazy ones! I have been planning/working on an upcoming event for work and have had little time to post on IMHB and this makes me very very sad. During this crazy time Zach Braff and Entertainment Weekly released a stream of the Wish I Was Here Soundtrack. This is some SERIOUSLY awesome news, unfortunately I am a little late on sharing it with you. To be honest I hadn’t even listened to it myself until today. I can’t tell you enough how warm and cozy inside it made me feel to hear all of the reasoning behind each and every song on the soundtrack (if only he could’ve done this for Garden State). I had chills goosebumps and even shed a teeny tear or two listening to Braff talk so passionately about the music and his film. What a cool guy he is! Please take the time to listen to this start to finish, you won’t regret it! And just in case you are NOT keeping track…only THREE more days until the movie premiers! Get excited people!
