my new car came equipped with a free subscription to Sirius radio for three months, and while at first I thought I wouldn't really use it, I'm now mildly obsessed with a few of the alternative/collegiate-minded stations and they've turned me on to a few new songs from my favorite bands.  here are a few songs that I can't stop listening to right now:

Fun - We Are Young ft. Janelle Monáe

Air - Kelly Watch the Stars

Dr. Dog - Heart It Races

(a song originally done by Architecture in Helsinki)

Coconut Records - West Coast

(side note - Coconut Records is basically just actor Jason Schwartzman having a great time.  and did you know he was the drummer for Phantom Planet?  any fan of The OC out there? California?)

Miike Snow - Black and Blue
