Step aside Chromeo, Daft Punk and Cut Copy! Please make room for Miami Horror.

I just stumbled across this tasty, funky collective from Melbourne, Australia, and they’ve been in my head all day.

The quartet have been together producing their bespoke indietronica since 2007. They released their debut Illumination in 2010, which included a track in collaboration with Kimbra called “I Look To You,” which has tallied up nearly 5-million views to date.

The real gem I’m going to share today, however, is one of their more recent tunes called “Colours in the Sky.” It’s truly gorgeous, and I hope you enjoy :)

Breaking-Bad-Season-51

Felina // Breaking Bad’s Epic Finale

Breaking-Bad-Season-51

After 6 years of painful Breaking Bad related stress and anxiety, AMC’s dramatic story of a high-school teacher gone bad came to an end.

When I say gone bad, I mean really bad – probably the worst imaginable transformation of a person. From Walter White, the family man, sweetheart, high school chemistry teacher, downtrodden by circumstance but upheld by a good heart; to Heisenberg. Vengeful murderer and leader of a massive meth empire. It’s the kind of opposite Bildungsroman that sends shivers all over.

For the first time in a long time, I felt satisfied. I didn’t think that would happen.

(COVER) SONG OF THE DAY // HAIM covers Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball”

HAIM-608x341

The first thing I saw when I woke up this morning was that sister trio HAIM have covered Miley’s latest offering, “Wrecking Ball,” which has become more iconic than I would have ever imagined.

The LA sibling indie rock outfit delivered a raw performance on BBC’s Live Lounge, an equally emotional version of the tune sans the surprising hammer licking and overly literal wrecking ball swinging on set. They were also fully clothed.

Please watch this, it’s really something special.

If you don’t know HAIM here’s a crash course of 22 things you should know courtesy of BUZZFEED.
