Shugo Tokumaru – Hidamari (music)

Hidamari is a song that has been with me for years now, and every once in a while it comes on while I’m working – as it just did. Today I decided that it was the right time to share the lighthearted, hopeful, completely delightful, and probably indecipherable Shugo Tokumaru with you. Shugo Tokumaru – [...]

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

Sun Airway – Waiting On You (video)

This is the first I’ve heard of Sun Airway, but I really like it so far. They are from Philadelphia, and this song is off of their forthcoming record Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier. I’ve reproduced the mp3 below for your listening convenience. Stylistically I haven’t seen a lot recently quite like this video. They [...]

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 _____, [...]

Future Islands – In Evening Air (audio)

and i hold your hand as i’m walking through that door I have to admit, even with all of the incredible albums I’ve stumbled upon in the last three weeks, Future Islands still took me by surprise. The synth combined with the pop, all cobbled together with a bit of raw emotion that begs at [...]

Frightened Rabbit – Nothing Like You (mp3)

i could claw back my heart and soul, as the size of this tumour diminishes, so we fill that black hole Frightened Rabbit have released two wonderful albums over the last several years, but with the advent of The Winter Of Mixed Drinks it has become apparent that both were simply a slow build. To [...]

Cut From A Different Fur: The Morning Benders “Excuses” (video)

Delightful video of one of my favorite songs from The Morning Benders’ new album Big Echo. Absolutely wonderful. If you like good, honest, heartfelt music, this is required listening. The Morning Benders – Excuses

The Morning Benders – Cold War (Nice Clean Fight) (mp3)

I came across The Morning Benders‘ new album, Big Echo, on my portable around a week ago while I was walking the streets of Highland Park in the rain looking for something to spruce up the day (not that it could have been much better, it was raining after all). Specifically, this side of town [...]
