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 [...]

The National – Bloodbuzz Ohio (video)

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 [...]

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 [...]
