And the band plays some song about forgetting yourself for a while.

The Airborne Toxic Event is an American indie rock band, named after a section of the book White Noise.
 I’m a fanatic for strings, lyrics, and broken hearted love songs. This one have all  the three properties. Then it's probably not surprising that I am captivated by this..

I can’t believe that guy’s married to her. I would get her so pregnant.

Holiday, at last! Ok, let's go

I've always thought that the songs themselfes was maybe a little weak, and I would most likely had forgotten them. If it wasn't for the videos. The videos remains rather fantastic!

OK Go – Here It Goes Again
OK Go – This Too Shall Pass

Ok, here it goes again!

Dance yourself clean

For the eye and the ear!
Three cool songs and three cool dances.

Yelle, belle, do you want to ring my bell?

Hardcore Girls, and maybe one not-so-hardcore boy? 

The Coaster. Yeah, I guess this must be for the eye ... (although I love the song!).

My heart longs for Roskilde ..

As you might see (if you had read my blog), there were several bands that charmed me at Roskilde Festival.
Beach House, was one of them.

Beach House – Zebra
Beach House – Norway
Cool story about how they made the song "Norway". After a visit in Bergen, they got challenged to make a song on the train journey from Bergen - Stavanger. And they did! Hence the title, Norway.

Broken Bells is another band who did the same with me, charmed me completely.
Broken Bells – The High Road

They heard me singing and they told me to stop

.. did they?! Well, I don't.
What a song. What a text. What a group. They know how!

Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock ..

We run away, but we don't know why

Freeze this frame. Now call down your dark and your cold and be damned.

My new favorite!
While I let it spin, I lean back and start dreaming away. To the time in Hawaii...

May it be

North Shore ... What else is there?

Svensker ass...

Jag gillar!

Pallers – The Kiss

For the ear ...

This is quite different (and much better) from the electronic universe I normally associate with Trentemøller.

+Sycamore  Feeling (Trentemøller Remix)
This remix of Sycamore Feeling is brilliant, but the rest…???

The Brooklyn trio does it all: psych-pop, post-Apocalypic new wave to epileptic space disco.

Sensual Harassment – Fever

When everything he says is wrong and all you want to feel is “gone” ...

... say no to love.

+Say No To Love

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – Higher Than The Stars
The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – Young Adult Friction

For better and for worse.

It became a spontaneous favorite when I heard The Kissaway Trail the first time a year ago.
So now it must be honored. Congratulations you have been with me for a year!
And I will be with you for better and for worse....

If this is the last dance, then save it for me baby

Does this imply that the Danish duo is about to become ... mega big?
I, as a fan of texts with delicious phrases and words, could not ignore these great ones here:

I adore you
I always have
And everytime you overdose
I rush to intensive care

+ The last dance
The Raveonettes
