The Belgian dream-pop crew are still shrouded in mystery to us; a fresh-faced band whom we are dying to hear more about.

Spend your Monday getting to know Soldier’s Heart through ten of their personal fave songs.
Laurens: “Jenny Hval is a real story teller, her lyrics are so good. Her voice is so pure and so weird. When she sings her high notes, I always want to cry—not because I’m sad, but because it feels like such a relief.”
Sylvie: “It was hard to pick a favorite song from her last album; the production sounds so good.
I love the way she tells her stories, it’s very cinematic. She sounds naive, but in a beautiful and powerful way. I’m a big Lana fan!”

If you listen to the production (for example, the effects on his voice), you can see they are forerunners for a lot of contemporary music.”
Benjamin: “It’s a beautiful and coherent mix of studio experiments, psychedelic drones (a year before The Velvet Underground’s debut) and simple songwriting.”

My first month of college, I wasted $1000. First of all, I never cooked my own food, even though my parents kept my dorm stocked with groceries. I also never used coupons or bought things on sale. I just swiped my debit card first and asked questions later, like when my entire savings account was empty. I
This morning, at 11 AM EST, Lana Del Rey released an two and half minute long trailer for her new album, Lust For Life. Over a mysterious sounding instrumental track, a spectral-looking Lana playfully blurs the line between fact and fiction, as she tells us she lives “right inside the middle of the H of the
