Myspace // "Real Love" [mp3]
American Princes' song "Real Love" was easily the anthem of my trip through the Himalayas. I listened to it probably four or five times a day, as I quickly determined that it's the perfect four minute accompaniment to sadistic physical and mental pain. I don't know if it's the inherently quotable lyrics ("my heart doesn't know, it still hasn't learned to break like it should"), the huge sing-a-long chorus, or something else entirely, but the song works on so many levels. The lo-fi video is also a riot, though not what I was expecting for the song whatsoever. Their third album Other People was released on April 15 through Yep Roc, so make sure to pick it up.
