This Year's Best New Song... of the Week is "Tonight You're Perfect" by New Politics.
The guys of New Politics, David, Soren and Louis, stopped by ALT 98.7 earlier this year and instantly became one of my favorite bands. They engaged the audeince and managed to get everyone involved and singing along. Lead singer David even did some breakdancing!
Their album, A Bad Girl In Harlem, was one of my favorites of the year. "Harlem" proved to be a great single, and there are a few more great songs on the album, including "Berlin," "Fall Into These Arms," and This Year's Best New Song... of the Week, "Tonight You're Perfect."
We’ll being playing "Tonight You're Perfect" Monday through Friday this week at 8:10a, 12:10p, 6:10p and 10:10p.
Check out New Politics performing "Tonight You're Perfect" on the ALTstage and download it below:

We've been playing "Team" by Lorde for some a few months now, and today she released the music video for the song. It actually overloaded the servers and many people were unable to watch it for sometime. And it's understandbale, and it's one of the standout songs on Lorde's debut album, Pure Heroine.
Here's what Lorde had to say about the song on her Facebook page:
"WE'RE ON EACH OTHER'S TEAM
this video was borne from a dream i had a few months ago about teenagers in their own world, a world with hierarchies and initiations, where the boy who was second in command had acne on his face, and so did the girl who was queen. i dreamt about this world being so different to anything anyone had ever seen, a dark world full of tropical plants and ruins and sweat. and of this world, i dreamt about tests that didn't need to be passed in order to be allowed in: sometimes the person who loses is stronger. enjoy xx"

It was just over a month ago at the Life Is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas that Brandon Flowers of The Killers revealed to Kade the details of The Killers' annual Christmas song. (Watch the interview here)
Brandon mentioned that he had just left the studio where they were working on "Christmas In L.A." with local LA band Dawes. Watch the brand new music video for "Christmas In L.A." with Owen Wilson.
Since The Killers' are on hiatus... I wonder if this is the last new song we'll hear from The Killer. What do you think?
