I mean, we here at tuneage think it’s unlikely that any of our readers haven’t seen heartthrob Ryan Gosling’s new film, Drive. It is a work of cinematographic genius. And the soundtrack? Pure perfection. It stands alone but once you see the movie - every song is perfectly linked, if not intertwined, within the film’s plot.
Now, many would argue that “A Real Hero” by College is the breakout hit of the compilation and they aren’t necessarily wrong. But Desire’s Under Your Spell has a special place in my heart. Admittedly, both songs fantastically use a mix of 80s synth and modern indie with simple, repetitive lyrics.
Milo Greene - 1957
Bon Iver and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros have ushered us back into an era of soothing tunes where folk is no longer a dirty word. Milo Greene is a triple threat stepping onto the scene with perfect harmonies, strategically placed tambourines jingles and poetic lyrics.
Their symphonious chemistry makes it hard to believe they’ve been a band for under a year. Their mellow sound reminds me of a moment at dusk that is warm and inviting.
I had a very hard time deciding which song of theirs to post; with only four songs on their website, Milo Greene bets big on winning you over quickly and oh do they ever.

Disculpa mi Corazon por aver palpitado tan rápidamente cuando nuestras almas cruzaron camino.
