Hi. How’s your night going, Hart Beat? It’s finally warmer here in Brooklyn tonight and I’m so thankful for that. Pedro and I drove up to Greenpoint tonight to get some of my things and I forgot how much I love driving past the Manhattan skyline at night.

For once in Hart Beat’s history, the song I’m sharing with you here is NOT about what’s going on in my life. Instead, it’s just a new track that I can’t stop listening to because of the amazing singer that is behind the song. Liza Anne, a Nashville based singer and songwriter, is a new artist to me but this song “Lost” is hauntingly beautiful and just the kind of thing that I love to listen over and over again to. I first heard her voice when her song “Room” was included in my favorite Austin 100 this year. Not only is the song amazing but the official video has a beautiful choreographed dance for the song. What do you think, Hart Beat? Are you as much of a fan as I am?

If it wasn’t for you, I’d be alone

This song, Hart Beat. THIS SONG. I can’t stop listening to it and I know each and everyone of you is going to like it as much as I do. I don’t know who Mapei is but I will love her forever if she keeps making music like this. “Don’t Wait” is exactly the song that I wanted to hear right now. Thank you universe.

Brooklyn’s Aly Tadros

Hi Hart Beat. I am so happy to share this song with you tonight. This is one of my favorites lately, and the best part? Aly Tadros is a fellow Brooklyn resident! We actually met last spring in the my Brooklyn running group and ever since looking her music up after meeting, I can’t stop listening. Not only is Aly an amazing artist but also the nicest person ever. This year Aly and fellow musician Ben Balmer released the song “Whim” that they co-wrote together. I am floored Hart Beat, I love this song so much. Aly’s playing in Manhattan on Saturday night, who wants to come with?

I’m miles from where you are

I was listening to the official Hart Beat playlist in the car today and I realized that I’ve never shared one of my favorite, most Hart Beat appropriate classics. I think tonight is a good night to share it with all of you. Anyone who can guess what movie trailer features this song will win all my love and devotion. Just kidding?

Honey, it’s alright

Hi Hart Beat. I have a song for you to listen tonight. Do you know Gregory Alan Isakov? I think you might like him Hart Beat. His newest album, The Weatherman, was released this past July and it’s a good place to start with. This man’s voice woos me like no other. I could listen to this song all night long.

Los Angeles, let me back in

I can’t believe it but I’ve only just discovered Rkives. If I didn’t love this song so much then I probably wouldn’t be telling you that Hart Beat. Sometimes it’s hard to write about something you love so much, like this song. I feel so nostalgic, sad, happy, and excited at the same time when I hear Jenny Lewis sing this song. Even more, I love this video of collected fan video from Rilo Kiley’s days touring back in the day.
From the Eastern seaboard, the landlocked Midwest
The Keys, the Alps, the Black Hills and Budapest
With my heart in a sling, tail between my legs a-swinging
I’m sorry for leaving
 
But when the palm trees bow their heads
No matter how wrong I’ve been
L.A., you always let me back in

Leaving You Behind

Hi Hart Beat. I wanted to share a new song with you really fast this Saturday night. If you’re on your way out too we can listen to it together. What do you think, Hart Beat? You in?

“I Should Live in Salt”
Think about something so much
You should know me better than that
Start to slide out of touch
You should know me better than that
Tell yourself it’s all you know
You should know me better than that
Learn to appreciate the void
You should know me better than that

I should live in salt for leaving you behind

Sweetheart I already miss you

Hi. How’s your Sunday night going, Hart Beat? I felt like a little romantic music tonight to offset the horrible Breaking Bad outbreak that is about to hit the internet. You with me? This is one of my favorite songs to play on the guitar and I finally found a decent youtube version of the song for you.

“I Already Miss You” by The Kooks
You know I hate talking on telephones
I’m so sorry it’s just my way
And now that I’m a little older
There’s so much to you I’d like to say

Babe I already miss you
Sweetheart I already miss you
Sweeteyes I already miss you
And you only just walked out the door
