You can't not like a song that starts "Oooooh, Poooour meeeee another drink. And punch me in the face. You can call me Nancy."
Yeah, the video is just, if not more, kinkier than that. It keeps it mostly PG-13 but is a nice dream like, sex free, fetish hooker hotel experience. I hear you pay extra for the studded leather bra. A...a...a guy I...a friend told me. Back to the video...
It has more of a story to it than just that and ends with a jaw dropping twist. And, I believe that was a nipple. Yes, we have nipple conformation. So listen and watch, or just listen, or just watch. Either way you shouldn't be disappointed.
Not too long ago I used another Father John Misty song as the Song of the Day. If you liked this one, check out the "Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings" video featuring Aubrey Plaza.

As of yet, I have not listened to much of the Fleet Foxes' collection. I did give a former member's new solo act a try recently though. Josh Tillman the former drummer and a vocal provider is Father John Misty and Father Jon Misty put out his first album, Fear Fun, earlier this Spring. I must say it is pretty awesome. What's also awesome is this video for "Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings". Rarely do I feel anything from a music video, but this song perfectly encapsulates the emotions of losing someone you love. I would imagine at the least. I picture myself watching this video in the future, at a time of loss and bawling my eyes out. It doesn't hurt that Aubrey Plaza plays the part perfectly. Give it a listen and watch. I promise, you will enjoy.

Again, Frank Turner is one of those names I've heard thrown around on Twitter for a few months and never got around to listening to. And again, a huge mistake. Frank, an English folk singer-songwriter, has recently come out with a new album, England Keep My Bones. It reminds me quite a bit of Frightened Rabbit, and in some ways a "harder" Mumford & Sons. It's probably because of the whole United Kingdom relation though. Give "If Ever I Stray" a listen. If not, instead "Take me down to the English Channel" and "Throw me in where the water is shallow". Please don't forget to "drag me back to shore".

This is now the third Sufjan Stevens song that has made it's way into our "Song of the Day" feature. The first two being "I Walked" and "Seven Swans". "Holland" comes off his 2003 album Greetings From Michigan, The Great Lake State which I have been listening to constantly. It makes me feel special because I'm from Michigan. This video was put together by some fan who took pictures from around Holland, MI. Which is neat. Enjoy.

Ever since a friend sent me "Little Talks" by Of Monsters and Men, I have been hooked. Listen to that song here. Recently I saw this live rendition of "Your Bones" on the Subreddit /r/ListenToThis over on reddit and really enjoyed it. /r/Listentothis is a great place to find out about some new music that isn't that mainstream. Hipster points! If you are into Indie Folk music, such as Mumford & Sons, be sure to have a listen.
Of Monsters and Men is an Icelandic band from, get this, Iceland. They speak perfect English, most likely better than me, or yous. So don't worry about having to speak Icelandic, or whatever ever crazy stuff they speak over there. Check out their Facebook, Twitter, and Myspace where you can listen to their music. This is also their website, http://ofmonstersandmen.is/ (The '.is' stands for "Is from Iceland". The more you know!).
