Sun Airway – Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier (music)

every word my lips suggest, that’s between my lips and the american west Sun Airway is a delightful little thang from Philadelphia. Delightful because of their sound, and because they finally came out with their (at least by me) much-anticipated first album, Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier. I’ve already posted a song or two from [...]

School of Seven Bells – I L U (video)

Really fantastic video for one of my favorite bands of the year. Definitely check out School of Seven Bells and their most recent album Disconnect from Desire if you haven’t had a chance yet. The first in a series of posts that have been building up in my drafts over the last month.

NSFW: El Guincho – Bombay (video)

Awesome song, rocking video. El Guincho is playing at La Cita this Wednesday (October 6th) and Spaceland this Friday (October 8th) in Los Angeles.

Deerhunter – Desire Lanes (music)

when you were young and your excitement showed Deerhunter has a new album, Halcyon Digest, and this track is certainly my favorite after two weeks of listening. On repeat right now. Deerhunter – Desire Lanes

The Hundred in the Hands – Pigeons (video)

There are a lot of different decisions made by the director/cinematographer in this one that make for an interesting watch. Very pretty. Check it out.

I’ve reproduced the mp3 below for your listening convenience. Stylistically I haven’t seen a lot recently quite like this video. They [...]

The National – Bloodbuzz Ohio (video)

stand up straight at the foot of your love Bloodbuzz Ohio is the first single from The National‘s new album High Violet. The rest of the album is great, and in spite of my general dislike of performance videos, this one goes in a different direction than most and I like it. Check it out.

Kisses – The Heart of the Nightlife (mp3)

so keep your heart strong, and love long and give kisses when you can A friend of mine turned me onto Kisses about a month ago, and I’ve gone back to the album time and time again. From Los Angeles, this duo really captures a sound that I didn’t think I’d be hearing again and [...]

Future Islands – Tin Man (video)

and time goes by, and you’ve got a lot to learn in your life, and the heart’s not inside, and I’ve gotta find the one, who’s just right I posted about Future Islands a little while back, and since that time they have become one of my very favorite bands of two-thousand-ten. This song happens [...]

Free Energy – Dark Trance (audio)

do you love her… do you wonder… why the starship shines above do you love her… do you want her… have you ever had enough? When you hear a song, and it sounds like something else you’ve heard, generally one of two reactions follows: Either “Wow, these guys are lame, they sound just like _____, [...]
