Today's Musical Obsession: Holy Esque - "Ladybird Love"
These guys from Glasgow wrote two of my favorite songs from this year. “Ladybird Love” is from  their 2012 EP, and it’ll likely be obsessing me in 2016. This is one of the roughest, dirtiest voices (Pat Hynes) you’ll ever hear, and it’ll make you want to run out and bang down a door somewhere.

Today's Musical Obsession: EELS - "Mistakes of My Youth"
Alright, there may have been one or two, Mistakes of My Youth. Don’t ask, for example, about the night with the capes. But I’m not going to obsess about it.

Today's Musical Obsession: The Courtneys - "Lost Boys"
Chunka-chunka-chunka, train music, highway music, is what tends to get me obsessed. Trance music, gnaoua sung by a 50’s girl group who’ve left a “vampire teenage boyfriend” behind.
