Belle and Sebastian’s latest album, The Third Eye, is a compilation of rarities and remixes from over the years. It’s an upbeat, eclectic romp through top-fan-picks from their last decade of music. So have a listen right here, courtesy of Rough Trade.
I met Kirkis about a year ago through mutual friends, and we got talking a bit at the café he was working at. At some point he casually mentioned that I should come along to one of his gigs. I didn’t realize he made music, and as every other kid in Melbourne seems to be […]
Fuck Buttons have a new album out called Slow Focus. It is their first new album in four years and well worth the wait. Check out the first video off the album, The Red Wing, then go grab the album for the rest of the electronic tripiness inside.
Can you even remember the last time you were totally floored by an album? Not a single, not a playlist, not a mashup – AN ALBUM. Well, if you’re like me and spend most of your time hop-scotching through an iTunes library, allow me to introduce you to Colin Stetson, the avant-garde saxophone juggernaut behind New […]
Waste Away is the first song on our new EP, High Gain. It’s probably one of my favorites because it’s very new. We wanted one more song for the record, so we wrote the basic idea very quickly and pretty much learned it in the studio. It’s about sitting around doing nothing and being fine […]
Andrew Wyatt (from Miike Snow) enlisted the entire Prague Philharmonic Orchestra for his new album. It’s amazing. It feels vintage and cinematic, yet new and fresh all at once. The album, Descender, won’t be released until April 30 in the States, but in the meantime, you can stream the full saga in all its glory here.
My favourite album of recent years is In Dust by Roll The Dice. It’s an electro-acoustic affair full of piano, heavy bass, ear-pleasing effects and space. Gently emotive, it makes aimless, middle-of-the-night driving feel like bathtime.
We released our second album this month. Check out our new video and single, Love Your Friends, Hate Politicians, which was filmed and produced by ACTOP (Alvaro P. Posadas and director César Pesquera) and shot between Barcelona and New York.
This mixtape is the first project I have put out in a couple of years. I made all the beats and produced it. I think it’s a pretty raw and personal record and very different from other projects I’m currently working on. But it was definetly an album I needed to make.
Jeff Leopard is my new song for the week, but I’m loving the whole album. I’ve been waiting on it since I heard them a few months back. The video by Jonny Sanders is also great. If you like Holy Fuck, Battles, and LITE, you should like Gallops.
One of the most anticipated EPs of the year was released recently. Kendrick Lamar made his debut with the release of M.A.A.D city. As a fan who’s been following Lamar’s music for over three years, I think his acclaim is well deserved. Most importantly, the debut EP actually actually lives up to the hype. Bonus!
It’s been a while since their 2010 album Total Life Forever, and UK band Foals has announced a third studio album, Holy Fire, to be out on 11 Feb 2013. Inhaler is the first sonic glimpse the world has had of the album. It’s accompanied by a music video featuring some very twitchy people in […]
After a career spanning nearly two decades, The Sea and Cake have released their tenth studio album, Runner. As a little gift for fans, they have also released a demo version of their track, A Mere. The arrangement feels soft and intimate, full of Sam Prekop’s breathy, angst filled vocals. Being drained of any sounds […]
Marina Lambrini Diamandis, better known as Marina and the Diamonds, has recently dropped her sophomore album, Electra Heart. A departure from the indie folk sound of her debut, the album captures the kind of synth driven pop that makes me dance like a idiot in my car, most notably to the brilliant single Primadonna.
Hailing from Iceland, this six-piece band, whose fantasy world is brought to life in their music, have been compared to the likes of Arcade Fire, Laura Marling, and elements of Bat for Lashes, and a sweeter dash of The Vaselines. They meld traditional sea-shanty folk, using male and female vocals, and beautiful harmonies, with tales […]
