Week In Review (3/6/15)

Action Bronson – “Baby Blue (ft. Chance the Rapper)

*

Toro Y Moi – “Buffalo”

*

Best Coast continues being Best Coast and wrote another song about California (but it’s still good)

I dig the Nightcrawler feel (in style and not in Jake Gyllenhaal’s creepy eyes).

*

NEW MY MORNING JACKET YA 2015 YOU GO!

The Waterfall comes out May 4th.

*

The “Blister in the Sun” guys are back with a new song called “Love Love Love Love Love”

You know, that one song.

*

Brent Faiyaz – “Be”

*

For Esmé reminds me of CHVRCHES and it makes me so happy

*

Got 12 minutes to spare? For Föllakzoid’s new music video for “Electric”, you should make time

This is what Chilean psych rock sounds like.

*

Watch Ryan Adams play Patrick Swayze and Natalie Prass play Wendy Fraser on this live Dirty Dancing cover

I would buy an Adams/Prass cover album of Dirty Dancing songs in a heartbeat. Here’s the original.

*

Another week, another great track off the upcoming Chromatics album

The fact that this album still doesn’t have a set release date is breaking my heart while I groove on the dance floor in my scorpion jacket.

*

This Carmen Rizzo remix of Low Roar’s “Breathe In” is so good

Think if Thom Yorke wrote songs for Sigur Rós.

*

Braids – “Taste”

*

Week In Review (1/23/15)

Get excited for the new Toro Y Moi album.

What For? comes out April 7th via Carpark Records.

*

Daniela Andrade does Childish Gambino right with this acoustic cover of “Telegraph Ave / Sober”

A great acoustic cover of a rap song is a beautiful thing.

*

Another great Title Fight song to get you excited for their upcoming new album…

Listen here via Stereogum.

*

…And another great Quarterbacks song to get you excited for the American Football-inspired emo revival (which isn’t a bad thing).

Listen here via NPR.

*

Gengahr – “She’s A Witch”

How do you pronounce it? Eh who cares, I dig this song.

*

Sharon Van Etten already rules 2015

As if 2014 wasn’t a big enough year for her. Hopefully “I Don’t Want to Let You Down” is an indication of a new album in 2015.

*

The first album of 2015 that I love is a 4-way-tie between Viet Cong’s debut, Sleater-Kinney’s reunion, Belle & Sebastian’s dance-party, and Cloakroom’s shoegaze

Do yourself a favor and listen to all these albums (they’re all up on Spotify). The Sidekicks also get a shout out for their great new album that you should also check out on Spotify.

*

Little Daylight – “Be Long (Twice As Nice Remix)”

*

Imagine a less annoying, but still strange, Death Grips song that you really liked and you get Liturgy’s “Quetzalcoatl”

The Ark Work comes out March 24th via Thrill Jockey Records.

*

Alex Winston – “We Got Nothing”

*

I have no idea how to describe this new Ava Luna song but it’s so great and unique that you should really listen to it like right now

New album coming out this year!

*

With a song this catchy, Allie X is allowed to make its music video as trippy as possible

But seriously, where do you get those glasses?

*

If this song sounds like 1960’s garage psychedelics, it’s because this band is one of the founders of 1960’s garage psychedelics

The band that brought you “Strychnine” still kicks ass after all these years.

*

The Rotaries – “Town Light”

*

Roy English – “Julianne”

*
