I will never forget the first music video I saw on MTV. I was standing in our family room, ready to give up on whatever was on, ’til the soft strokes of “The Scientist” suddenly rang forth persistently from the set. Chris Martin had appeared, walking in reverse, traversing the stage of some faraway land, and my love for Coldplay became solidified in those four-odd minutes.
It has yet to abate, especially with this latest, a Bon Hiver-esque, smoky nighttime song released as a preview for their May album. I waited out the first week in hopes of a masterful rework to spring up, and it is Urban Contact I found success: an Adrian Lux type synth and sharp snare beat. Killin’ it.

My absolute favorite off the new Above & Beyond Acoustic album is “Miracle”. Its delicate beauty truly shows off the talents of Tony (playing guitar), Paavo (cello), and Jono (vibraphone) and their newly-adapted album in a remarkable way. Couldn’t sleep without sharing.
