Embedtime stories

Apropos of nothing - four songs that have given me goosebumps in the last 24 hours.

MNDR - Cut Me Out

A portion of peculiar pop from New York's MNDR (her off of Mark Ronson's Bang Bang Bang). It is available for download from something called Green Label Sound, which is probably very fashionable if you're the sort of person who thinks record labels are fashionable, ie a moron.

A Tribe Called Quest - Check The Rime

They didn't just do Can I Kick It, you know.

She & Him - Don't Look Back

Zooey Deschanel is delightful as ever in this retro throwback acoustipop concoction. But is it just me, or do her eyes look all raw like she's been crying? Zooey - you are always welcome at Discopop Towers if you need a comforting hug that definitely won't get weird and uncomfortable.

Gram Parsons & Emmylou Harris - Love Hurts

Without wanting to sound like the sort of person who writes for Mojo magazine, this is possibly the best duet ever committed to tape. Drenched in regret, this is gut-wrenchingly, achingly beautiful. If you only know Cher's version, this is going to make you re-evaluate everything.
