Claire’s Column: Royksopp and Starfucker

Hi Everyone,

It’s been a while since I last posted but I thought I would check in. In the span of one week I will be traveling up and down the east coast (for various important family birthday parties) four different times. (CT-DC, DC-CT, CT-DC, DC-CT). Now if my multiplication skills are correct that means that I will be spending over twenty four hours on the train and therefore will be in need of an adequate soundtrack for my multiple trips. I won’t burden you all with every song I plan on listening to (that could even be a little embarrassing) but here are a few songs that will definitely be on the playlist.

The first song, “German Love,” I loved immediately upon my first listen (which is rare for me). I have literally been playing it on repeat since I came across it a few days ago. My only complaints are that it’s not long enough and I’m not a huge fan of the band’s name.

The next song “Questions and Answers” is a song I’ve loved since junior or sophomore year of high school and recently rediscovered. While I’m hesitant to say it’s unbearably cute for fear of sounding too much like Zack…it’s unbearably cute. Also it makes me happy because it reminds me of the many hours spent in the Death Cab with Suz, hey Suz!

Finally, I found Royksopp’s new song weeks ago and since then it’s popped up everywhere but if you have yet to hear it, it is absolutely worth listening too. It is already my favorite Royksopp song by far and truly lives up to its title, “Happy Up Here” as it is one of the most upbeat, happy songs I’ve ever heard.

MP3: Starfucker – “German Love”
MP3: The Apples in Stereo – “Questions and Answers”
MP3: Royksopp – “Happy Up Here”

Love,
Claire
