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

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.

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 [...]

The National Debut New Song on Fallon: Terrible Love (video)

Yeah, so, you know me. You know me well. I’m a huge, huge fan of The National, and they just debuted the first song off of their new album, High Violet (out May 11th), on Jimmy Fallon. And, of course, it’s awesome. (via stereogum)

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.

I have reproduced the cover below because it so perfectly captures a feeling that has become far too familiar to me in the recent weeks – an increasingly dull ache of [...]

Rafter – Sex Death Cassette

Hailing from San Diego, Rafter is the brain-child of Rafter Roberts. The music is all over the place, but all of it is good. It’s experimental, poppy, lo-fi, indie, upbeat, and ridiculous… depending on which song you listen to. I’ve included a couple of my favorites from his newest release (out in January of this [...]

Port O’Brien – All We Could Do Was Sing

This Oakland-based quartet just released their first full-length studio-recorded album, “All We Could Do Was Sing,” on May 13th. I loved it the moment that I heard it, and I still can’t stop listening to the first song on the album, “I Woke Up Today.” I’ve included both the song and the video for the [...]

Silver Jews – Party Barge

Silver Jews have been around for a while. Quite a while. The Tennessee (originally UV/New York) trio released their first album under this name in 1995, six years after they formed at the University of Virginia. Their latest album, Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea, will be available on June 15th from Drag City – and it’s [...]
