Sirius XMU this past week, discussing the new album. One story I wanted to share is how on the first day they sat down to start writing this album, the hurricane struck New York City and all of the power went out for days. The first song they wrote, under those circumstances, was "Fireproof," one of my favorites from this album. I don't know if I just enjoy their sadder, dark songs or something but I love it! It sounds like a song you would listen to on a dark, rainy day. If you don't enjoy the dark songs as much as I do, definitely check out "Don't Swallow the Cap". This was the first single they released from the album. It's probably my favorite. Also listen to: "Sea of Love," "I Need My Girl," "Graceless."

By far my favorite was the single that was previously released, "Get Lucky (Feat. Pharrell Williams)." I could dance to that song ALL DAY. The end of the album is interesting, it has the voice of what sounds like an astronaut, looking out into space saying "there's something out there." I was wondering if this was on the TRON Album too... but it has a cool sound, like a Ghostland Observatory song. More songs from the album to check out are: "Give Life Back to Music," "Doin' Right (feat. Panda Bear)," "Instant Crush (feat. Julian Casablancas)."
I'm sure you already knew about these albums, but they ARE "What I'm Listening To" right now ;).
