New MGMT? You bet. This year keeps getting better, and better. Read the comments, mostly positive for this new direction for the band. You'll see a lot of people think it reminds them of Bowie. I hear Sgt. Pepper. It's a fresh sound though. A song that gets better from start to beginning. Get lost. New LP will be here in June.
Another good track here. Reminds us a lot of Fiest. Aussies The Preatures bring you their lead single "Is This How You Feel". Dance around the apartment naked. We won't tell.
Still Corners have an LP coming out on Sub Pop next month. They are also going out on a tour with CHRVCHES.
Life is looking up.
Putting yourself out there. It's easy to do nowadays.YouTubeputs you face to face with potentially millions.Sound Cloudhas a growing number of people putting up their demos. Searching through hundreds I give you here the best.
I had to search long, far, and wide for a goodPortisheadcover. Beth's songs are so hard to nail, but damn ifLehcar Thevoid
doesn't come close. This is a beautiful version of Roads that only gets better as the song goes on.From right here in Brooklyn,Eric Changives us a mashed version of theCranberrieswithEagle Eye Cherry. Love
the double tracked vocals. Well done Eric.What captured me first isbrittmesipretty awesome photo. She does a decent rough piano cover ofBat for LashesLaura.
Again props to her for tackling this tough song....And then we find the reason we sifted through hours of these. thatPoppy not only does amazing covers, she does them
on a professional buzz worthy level. Something tells me she's going to make future mixes as well.Some guy going by the name"Danz Cheng Shih Ee"from Malaysia gives a pretty damn beautiful cover of Coldplay.WhatLeila Rosalesmisses in guitar playing. (It's slightly out of tune) She makes up for it in singing. There are quite a few
high parts here, and she nails them pretty well for a bedroom recording.Someone famous makes the covers mix. Phoenixdoes their own take onAir'sPlayground Love. Nice to hear someone on a professional
level tackle a song acoustically to compare.Sometimes it doesn't work. Here is an example when everything doesn't work(on any level).Gabe FaulkI'm sad to sayyou have "no hope, and no future".
we can never finish what we started... the power in those moments remains
First up is another track that is blowing up our computer playlists. The feeling here sums up the mood lately."Can't un-dream a year, so taylor your expectations"I feel you my brother.
theStrokesnew albumComedown Machinehas had a while to digest. The consensus is we have a winner. These are a little bit of growers, but the songs are there.
Tracks like "Tap Out", "Welcome to Japan", "Chances", and "One Way Trigger" will have us coming back for repeated listens. Maybe for different reasons than in the past.
There is a groove here, a more subtle way to rock, and still the great one liners like "What kind of asshole drives a Lotus" that make this the album a success.
"You know you found your name in lights"Brooklyn's Little Daylight gives us the perfect come down to this mini set. Pure soothing bliss is coming our of our speakers here.
How 'bout yours?
Thoughts and prayers go out to Kevin, and his family tonight. This is the most brutal basketball
injury we have ever seen. Tonight in the game between Duke, and Louisville the injury occurred in
the 1st half, and brought the game to a standstill for 9 minutes. Players, coaches, and fans were in tears.
We thought we'd seen it all when Shaun Livingston went down a few years back. This injury
tonight sadly tops even that one.
Atlas Geniusradio friendly slick sounding almost to a nausiating level. This is better than most of the stuff of mainstream radio though. We can only wish these guys were the worst it got. The song is still worth adding to that spring party mix. AlbumWhen it was Nowavailable on Itunes.
This is the kind of song I thought this generation was missing out on. Sounds a little like Weezer, or some other 90's rock band.
Even the lyrics are straight out of that generation. "Holding a gun to my head, so send me an angel" This song is quite catchy, and should find it's way into some strange places on the radio. PM for details.
Wavves new album Afraid of Heights is out March 26th
"Where do you go when you're walking in the Eden"? I wish here. What an uplifting piano led track. Great female fronted vocals.
