It’s 12.54am and I’m finding it difficult to sleep. I’ve got post-gig excitement pulsing through my veins and I can’t get his voice out of my head. But I don’t mind. Who cares about waking up early for work and responsibilities when you’ve just come home from watching an amazing Icelandic specimen like Jonsi. What […]

I was first drawn to MGMT by the awesome Ausgang album cover for Congratulations, and they did not disappoint. They are like a secret spaceship hidden in your garage waiting to jet you away to world smoothed over with imagination and magic.

By Michelle Wilding in New Music on Monday 15 March 2010

So MGMT are set to bring back their flutes, horns and psychedelic falsetto melodies on their forthcoming album, Congratulations. But this teaser track seems to cram every imaginable genre into the space of less than five minutes, resulting in an interesting sound, to say the least.

Yeasayer’s Ambling Alp

Zolton Contributor

By Zolton in Video on Tuesday 1 December 2009

Forget MGMT, well, for the next five minutes anyway. Yeasayer are the hottest band out of Brooklyn, and they have a new video to prove it. Their single, Ambling Alp, sounds like Nik Kershaw locked in a wind tunnel.

SXSW: bands to watch

Ari Stein Reader Find

By Ari Stein in New Music on Saturday 22 March 2008

So here are my picks of acts to watch in 2008 from this year’s SXSW — Jeremy Jay: New K records signing. Sounds like The Microphones meets Buddy Holly; David Banner: political effusive Hip Hop from the heart; Iglu & Hartley: the next buzz band. Epic new wave pop from Hollywood; The Dodos [above]: the most talked about band at SXSW. Everyone wants a piece of this ethnocentric psych band.
