Sigur Rós - The Rains of Castamere (Game of Thrones Season 4)

Tonight’s Game Of Thrones is a must-watch, not only because of some huge events that take place but also because Sigur Rós will be scoring some of said events. Their version of traditional Westeros folk song “The Rains Of Castamere” (which was previously covered by the National) will appear in tonight’s episode. Their ethereal take on things isn’t as entertaining as HBO’s mixtape of rappers going on about the series but it’s certainly good at instilling a deep sense of foreboding.

Chromeo - Ezra’s Interlude (Ft. Ezra Koenig)

One of my revelations during Coachella’s first weekend was that Chromeo has become a really big deal, in part because the duo’s eternally throwback electrofunk evokes many of the same sensations as the EDM festival-killers who now rule the summer. They’re masters of putting a smile on the faces of everyone around, themselves included, and despite their kitschy inclinations they’re absolutely serious about their craft. In a show of strength and versatility, this latest preview of Chromeo’s upcoming White Women leaves the sense of humor behind in favor of muted melancholia. Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig duets with Chromeo singer David Macklovitch on “Ezra’s Interlude,” a piano ballad gone digital that wouldn’t have sounded all that out of place amidst the synthetic wonders of Modern Vampires Of The City.
