One of my favorite parts of being a smaller music blog is that we don’t get caught up in the pageview race. We don’t have to just post stuff that will garner views, we can post the songs that are awesome or amazing or truly appeal to our ears and hearts.
I lead with that paragraph because this song and the new Cults song were back-to-back in my listening queue. This song is awesome to me; the Cults song not so much. But I don’t see this song at all as frequently as the Cults song. That just doesn’t seem right. Granted, Cults have earned a fanbase with their discography, but it’s like people are posting it just because it’s Cults and not even listening. The goal, in my mind, should be to share the best that we discover and come across musically. Take my thoughts with a grain of salt, though, because this is just one man’s opinion of two songs.
Nevertheless, I think you should listen to Easy Lover’s The Sweet. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that it definitely seems to recall a personal Beach House favorite, Take Care, because of the lyrics and the production. That and the vocals are swoon-worthy–the last minute and a half is why we fall in love with music and in general.
