Vampire Weekend’s Modern Vampires of the City is named Best New Music; read Ryan Dombal’s review.
unashamed about how much I love their album! I’ve seen a few drab live versions, and nothing’s as catchy as on Contra but their new instrumental direction and sound plays are grabbing.
“Brennisteinn” by Sigur Ros
“Default” by Django Django
Recently one of the top tracks for my daily jaunt through Cambridge.
Tom Waits and Anton Corbijn release a photo book featuring more than 200 shots of Waits by Corbijn taken between 1977 and 2011 on May 8.
One case where the voice profoundly matches the face.
“Stood Me Up” by DWNTWN
New favorites. They only have a teeny four-track EP out though.
Do it anyway.
Adore Ben Folds, great song, amazing a capella cover.
Watch Sufjan’s I’ll Be Home For Christmas on Vimeo. Released today and produced by We Are Films.
His artistic direction is creepy lately, but as always, equally lovely & inspiring to me.
Listen to our latest Best New Track, “Northern Lights”, a taut stunner from Swedish electro-pop newcomers Kate Boy.
Swedish electro-pop is my new favorite genre. This is addictive.
Sufjan Stevens - Happy Karma Christmas
The shops started playing holiday tunes this week, which is hella annoying, but I welcome all these yuletide newbies from Suf!
Toronto three-piece Metz’ brutal, riff-ready self-titled debut album is our latest Best New Music pick. While you’re at it, check out our Rising profile on the band as well.
Grunge bliss! Can’t get enough of these new fellas; I’m in a weird rock mood.
