Good For Gotye

As some of you may know, I used to DJ a ton, and music is still a HUGE part of my life. That’s why I LOVE  Spotify, and spend all day listening to it when I’m writing the stories and making the Internet. I’ve made a bunch of great mixes on there — like seriously great mixes — that you guys should subscribe to and check out! It’s also a great place to discover new (and sometimes old) music you might have mixed. (My user name is julie.gerstein). One artist I missed last year is Gotye, an Australian musician whose jams may veer a little on the easy-listening side of things, but whose cutting lyrics more than make up for the less-than-tough-guy jams. I’ve been obsessively listening to “Somebody That I Used to Know,” which also features vocalist Kimbra, and is about a breakup gone bad. “Told myself that you were right for me, but felt so lonely in your company,” he sings. The rest of the record is kinda whatever — actually, really whatever, but dang, that song is so good. [$9.99, Amazon]
