It’s glorious.

College ft. Electric Youth – A REAL HERO

17 May

Real human beings.

I dig these guys and they’re putting me in a good mood on a Tuesday. Enjoy.

FOSTER THE PEOPLE keeps banging out the hits that nobody seems to be listening to.

12 May

I’ve been pimping Foster the People to everybody I meet. Not because I owe them anything, but because they make infectiously good music that I think should blanket the airwaves. As it stands, PUMPED UP KICKS is all over KROQ and I’m cool with that.  It beats listening to more Mumford and Sons (c’mon that album came out in 2009 and Little Lion Man is on rotation like it’s a new single).

There’s no album yet, but with the way these guys are pumping out tracks I have to imagine it’s nearly complete. This new track is called “CALL IT WHAT YOU WANT” and I dont know why but all I can’t think of is “December, 1963 (Oh what a night)” by the Four Seasons. Craaaazy.

Just another day…

Enjoy this classic cover of Radiohead’s “JUST” performed by Alex Greenwald of Phantom Planet fame (mixed by Mark Ronson)

Ivan Ives – “All My Life”

5 Oct

Ivan is a white boy with some flow. He’s been around for a few years now and gaining steam with an underground following in the vein of Murs. I like you Ivan, keep on making music.

Ivan Ives – “Got It” from Iconoclast (2007)

Mumford & Sons (Bookshop Sessions)

5 Oct

Hey you guys. I know what you’re going to say. I’m sorry. We’ve been away far too long. But we’re back. Yuppie Dance Party…is back. Start the slow clap. NOW!

Mumford & Sons – “Little Lion Man”

At this point i’m convinced everybody and their mother has heard Mumford & Sons’ debut record “Sigh No More.” That’s cool, thanks for the invite to the party, assholes. Whatever I meant to be late.

If you’re like me, and you tend to disappear into dark spaces in your apartment for months at a time playing Civilization writing badass-punch-you-in-the-ovaries lyrics, then you might be scratching your ass wondering who the hell this band is. Well fear not, I’ve got you covered:


I kid, I grabbed the info for you already: M&S is an English Folk Rock band made up of four wonderfully talented musicians who have crafted a beautiful debut record. “Sigh No More” is a well constructed folk record and I think this record will be an instant classic on many listeners shelves for years to come. There is some grit to the music, but for the most part it is very easy listening. Who do they sound like? Well I’d say take early Avett Brothers and Kings of Leon, unplug the instruments and shovel on the Fleet Foxes.

Mumford & Sons – “The Cave”

El Guincho – “Bombay” NSFW!

3 Oct

EL GUINCHO | Bombay from MGdM | Marc Gómez del Moral on Vimeo.

El Guincho – “Bombay”

This is the opening track from El Guincho’s new album Pop Negro. If you like this track I promise you’ll love the rest of the album. The music really fits in to that washed out summer sound that Beach House and Best coast have made us really comfortable with. But, if you like the music go get the album, this isn’t even the best song, I just dig the music video…

Cee-lo “F**K You”

20 Aug

We’ve been a little absent from our sworn oath to keep the world full of awesome music in our corner of the interwebs. I apologize. To kick off what I hope to be somewhat of a resurgence in content…I give you Cee-Lo. Bob your head you haters.


16 Jun

If This is Happening is truly the swan song of James Murphy’s LCD Soundsystem project…bravo sir. A truly amazing album. This isn’t an introduction to a new decade music, but a nostalgic gaze upon the great musical influences in James Murphy’s life. Eno, Bowie, Byrne, Bush Tetras, Liquid Liquid etc etc etc.

Anyway the song “All I want” is James’ homage to Brian Eno (think Heroes with Bowie). It’s a 7 minute long track that hits from the beginning and barely builds through the piece. I liked it. Hopefully you will too.

Florence + The Machine – “Dog Days Are Over”

14 Jun

We here at YDP dig the soul filled sound of Florence and The Machine so we relish any opportunity to put one of her songs back up here. “Dog Days Are Over” was originally released as a single from Lungs back in the dark ages of 2008 (really not a very spectacular year for music in my opinion). Well a year and a half later it’s back with a new vid rockin’ and rollin’… Enjoy.
