The perfect Sunday, in my opinion, would involve eating a delicious breakfast of freshly made waffles, exchanging a few kisses, and reading the newspaper (all without leaving bed, of course). The soundtrack to this perfect Sunday morning would be the Toronto band Ohbijou. The seven-piece group plays delightful music that’s quiet but not too quiet and generally puts listeners in a pleasant mood. I think this has something to do with the plucking of string instruments. Check out their playlist for gettin’ frisky on land and water after the jump.

Remember Craig David? He was that hot, suave soul singer from the U.K. who had a huge hit in 2000 with the song “7 Days”. He hasn’t been big in the U.S. since, but his star has continued to rise in his native country. His newest record, Trust Me, which critics are seriously buzzing about, came out in American on May 6 and the single off of it, “Hot Stuff (Let’s Dance)”, was a Top Ten single in the U.K. We think it’s time for Craig to make a comeback in the good ol’ U.S. And who better than Craig to give us a list of his favorite booty jams — we’ve certainly used his in the bedroom. Playlist, after the jump! Keep reading »
This British soul band has been described as sounding “like Curtis Mayfield’s ‘Pusherman’ resurrecting Led Zeppelin and the exiled spirit of Cassius Clay” making it hard “not to fantasize about Pam Grier fighting off her pimp with a broken bottle.” Heavy, indeed. Their debut record, Great Vengeance & Furious Fire came out in the U.S. on April 8th and they launch on U.S. tour in May. But if you’re freaks for the HBO show Californication than The Heavy probably caught your ear when their song “That Kind Of Man” came blaring out of the stereo when David Duchovny’s character Hank Moody took a Porsche — and a Porsche sales rep — for a ride. Check out their list of songs for those times when love has really got you down. Keep reading »
Chances are, you probably remember Nina Persson as the angelic front woman for the band The Cardigans — remember their hit “Lovefool”? That was some goodness. Nowadays, Nina is still a member of The Cardigans (who released Super Extra Gravity last year), but she’s also got an amazing side project called A Camp, described as “a minimalist fusion of eclecticism and Americana.” A Camp’s self-titled debut record won four Swedish Grammys and Nina is hard at work on a follow-up. Hopefully this one, thanks to the loads of critical praise the last one received, will be available stateside (without having to pay for an import). In the meantime, the melancholy wonderment which makes Nina’s voice so special is also present in her list of “Top Ten Heartbreak Hymns.” Enjoy her picks, after the jump!
