Radiation City is a Portland four-piece influenced by 60s bossa nova and girl group pop (with bite). Their debut album, The Hands That Take You, is coming out on Tender Loving Empire (Typhoon, Loch Lomond) on September 27.
This is a fun new video by Toro Y Moi. Like scenes cut from that 1990s movie, The Frighteners, it’s a perfect goof-off, with colors from outerspace and funky animation on top of a great end of Summer song. How I Know is taken from the album Underneath the Pine.
Our new EP is due to be released early October. It’s a five tracker, trying to capture the social struggles that I witness within our Western society. The songs challenge the faults in our education system, our addictions to medication, and mechanical uniform fashions, amongst many other things.
Okay, this is greatness in all forms. This is why I make art and I can’t hang out with most human beings. The emotions, the music, everything. Even if you’re not a fan of rap music, you should have this album. Pure excellence.
Bjork is back with a new album, and here’s the new video from the single Crystalline. It’s directed by Michel Gondry, who has directed her videos before, and it’s awesome.
Chicago’s The Luck of Eden Hall is a long-running psychedelic rock outfit. The band has released music on the indie labels Limited Potential, Walrus Records and Fruits de Mer. The Luck of Eden Hall’s latest album, Butterfly Revolutions Vol. 1, has recently been released.
Listening to Cities Aviv reminds me of my first summer with a car. Aviv’s flow does whatever it wants on top the dreamy beats of Digital Lows. Float On is a perfect example of this. I imagine Aviv heard this Modest Mouse cover and knew exactly what to do with it.

Set to a reworking of Nick Cave’s immortal ballad, The Ship Song, this short film and song features performances by Neil Finn, Kev Carmody, Sarah Blasko, Angus and Julia Stone, Paul Kelly, Temper Trap, Martha Wainwright, Katie Noonan and Daniel Johns.
Although performing on stage with the likes of Nicole Atkins, A.C. Newman (the New Pornographers), Parlor Mob, and Craig Wedren (Shudder to Think), Stephen Warwick is a musician most of us haven’t heard of. He hails from Charlotte, NC, one of the largest banking cities in the southeastern United States. Not the most likely of places for a musician to grow creatively.
We love the new Mountain Goats video for their single Estate Sale Sign, which was directed by Brooklyn-based animation team Awesome and Modest: the video was made ‘using mixed media and handmade techniques to craft the eerie landscapes and anthropomorphic creatures at war over a snow globe’.
Yeeha! Another groundbreaking video from the best in the biz. For this latest effort, OK GO worked with director Trish Sie (who is the sister of lead singer Damian Kulash), the dance troupe Pilobolus, and the guys at Google to ‘create the latest HTML5 Chrome Experiment and musical experience. The project showcases the latest in […]
Joe and Honey’s crunchy sound takes you on a trip along the American highway, going through dusty desert landscape, and every now and then stopping at a dingy bar. Their EP is fantastic. Hopefully there is more to come.
Founded last year, and with only two releases out so far, Sanna La Fleur feel no stress to keep up release time. The graphics are as good as the music quality. Knowing that the first release was picked up by whatpeopleplay and got remixed by Spencer Parker, you know the this vinyl shine.
In this new music video for Melbourne indie-rock trio Celadore, an 80s wedding goes bad when guests from hell hijack the proceedings, to the horror of the unsuspecting wedding band. It went from concept to post in fifteen days and was shot on a Canon 7d and 5dmarkII DSLR.
Youn Sun Nah is not your typical jazz singer. Yes, being Korean does add to her unconventional appeal in the world of modern jazz. But what is really interesting about her is the way she uses her powerful voice.
Pusha T is far and away my favorite rapper out there right now. You probably know him from the records he made with his duo, Clipse. Since then, he’s been brought into the GOOD Music fold by Kanye and I’m psyched to be seeing him get even more exposure than ever. His Fear of God mixtape has been getting me through the summer. Can’t wait for Fear of God 2.
Sublime Frequencies are a label based in Seattle that release music that would just never see the light of day without their hard graft and passion. Releasing new talent and discovering music from tropical kingdoms never explored, they really know what they’re into and put things out that are so carefully researched and beautifully put […]
I typically hate YouTube, based on the experience of hanging out with friends and someone says, ‘Hey, check out this video’, and three hours later, you’re bored as hell watching things that someone else thinks is hilarious. Anyway, I like Bruce Springsteen, so here’s a video that was sent to me by a friend a […]
We dig the electric, pulsating sound of the new single, Amber Hands, from London band S.C.U.M, which dropped this week. The band are Guest Posting for Lost At E Minor this week about their favourite cultural discoveries.
The mix from Beats in Space 04.05.11 contains the longest clip I could find of her remix of Max Essa’s (ft. DC Mathias) How Do You Feel (starting at 12:18). And that remix is the shit! Such nice sounds, such nice groove, such nice hi-hats. Dreamy, laid back house that just keeps flowing like a […]
