I am in a bad mood today. I am fairly certain this music will reflect that:
1) "Hysteric" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqKjIquR5Bc). I love that this song's title implies a manic, wailing dance-jam by Karen O, but is actually a very gentle little tune. A sad one.
2) "Low Man" by Alberta Cross (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWvFjL8vs5w). I mean, this dude's voice KILLS me. This song is totally a lie-in-the-dark-on-your-bed-with-your-heart-fucking-breaking jam. That somber, slow beat on the drum and Petter Stakee's vocals perfectly represent the sound of yearning. Oh my GOD I am grumpy.
3) "Abel" by The National (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1BjndTZvQY). I know this band is famous for their weepy ballads, but I dig this song because it's ANGRIER. Well, basically The National's entire catalogue is appropriate for me today. Okay now I have to go listen to it.
Thanks for letting me try to bring you down with me this Tuesday...
