“Terrible Love” might be the most misunderstood song by Brooklyn’s The National, that’s why we love it here at PopHeart. Sure, the production on High Violet’s lead-off track is strangely terrible in it’s own right but the song sounds positively epic live. Plus the alternate mix is probably better too.
Here’s a bonus video you should watch.
The other night, Bekah and I were watching The Voice, or rather I was browsing through pedals while she watched the show that is supposed to kill American Idol.
Anyhow some of the contestants sang The Commodores Lionel Richie-penned “I’m Easy,” I can’t remember which ones, but wait that’s why they invented The Internets. Oh wait, found it.
The song took me back to the 7th-grade when everyone loved metal ballads and Faith No More’s version of “I’m Easy” popped up on young love mixtapes and I hear – junior high dances. I wasn’t allowed to go to those heathen fests.

Longtime PopHeart favorites Eels offer up a free 3 song ep from the “trilogy” albums Hombre Lobo, End Times and Tomorrow Morning. If you aren’t familiar with the band, well, what are you waiting for?
While the band may never reach the heights of Electro Shock Blues, the soundtrack to one dark 1998 Missouri winter for me, Mark Everett and supporting cast have been putting out consistently solid albums and are a live juggernaut.
This 24 minute session with Bon Iver is recorded at AIR Studio’s Lyndurst Hall and serves up some paired back interpretations of several songs off of Blood Bank EP and a cover of I can’t make you love me. Check it out here.
In this second video release from their forthcoming album Happy To You, Swedish band Miike Snow gives us a totally odd apocalyptic video that picks up where their first video Paddling Out left off. The album is scheduled for release via Downtown/Universal Republic on March 27.
A while back Jason sent me a message with Smashing Pumpkin’s “Perfect” attached to it. Remember how uncomplicated the 90’s were? he asked.
Yes, yes I do. They were glorious.
