"Llorando" in "Mulholland Drive."
"Sail" by AWOLNATION. Color me obsessed.
"A Real Hero" by College & Electric Youth from the "Drive" soundtrack. See the film, get the soundtrack. Both are excellent.
Best Coast’s new music video kicks it.
Movie star Drew Barrymore has even caught sight of them, and has now directed a music video for the group. Both Barrymore and Best Coast have pulled out all the stops here and created a remarkable music video for the song “Our Deal.” Featuring actors Donald Glover and Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat, this is quite an impressive endeavor.
The video reminds me of a mix between 1970’s cult classic The Warriors and Francis Ford Coppola’s The Outsiders. It tells the story of two rival Los Angeles gangs with Glover and Shawkat leading one, and actor Tyler Posey running the other. The story finds its stride when one of the gang members, Kick Ass’s Chloe Mortez, falls in love with rival gang leader Posey. With the opening shots of trains going along the outskirts of a crime ridden city, it imitates the Walter Hill directed movie perfectly. The final showdown between the two rival gangs is similar to the best scenes in Outsiders, and the narrative ends in an unlikely twist, proving that Drew Barrymore is a talented director.

"Unknown Brothers" by The Black Keys + writing + not leaving my ACed room + entertaining a teenage runaway = my Sunday.
"So Well" by Dawes. Love new album. First album is brilliant.
