Why am I afraid to dance, I who love music and rhythm and grace and song and laughter? Why am I afraid to live, I who love life and the beauty of flesh and the living colors of the earth and sky and sea? Why am I afraid to love, I who love love?

alt-J — Every Other Freckle

Tonight, alt-J’s highly anticipated sophomore album, This Is All Yours, was released. With fourteen tracks, the English band carefully navigates a dirty tongue, beautiful indie and ethereal electronica.

A slow, folksy beginning tumbles into a drumming baseline but it’s Joe Newman’s lead vocals that orchestrate this song: a testament to her form, her taste, her rawness. His voice travels up and down her body, it’s in her hair in crooning promises, on the inside of her thighs in echoing harmonies and the twinges of electronica gives her goosebumps. It makes the song imperfectly sexy, as it follows her curves from indie anthem to marching band rock to pop-electronica.

It takes guts, talent and raw sex appeal to pull off a hot serenade like this one, such a combination might only come around once a year. 2013 was Beyoncé’s “I want you to turn that cherry out” and 2014 will be alt-J’s “turn you inside out and lick you like a crisp packet.”

Miley Cyrus - Babe, I’m Gonna Leave You

If you can get over the lo-fi quality, the poor mixing, and the fact that this is Miley Cyrus covering a song written by Anne Bradon and made famous by Led Zeppelin, there’s actually a lot going on here. The singer/rapper/actress/sculptor shows a great dynamic range, powers through the high notes, and has a spot-on intuition for when to bring it back down. We would go on, but we think one soundcloud commenter summed it up pretty well:

"Robert Plant would twerk for this."

i mean, she sounds pretty damn good.
