I've been recently enjoying the power pop stylings of Surfer Blood. Part Weezer, part Dodos, and part Shins, it's the music of a good time being had. Their debut Astro Coast is due out January 19th.

Been thinking about maybe switching away from the blog format and going to a facebook/twitter feed. Any thoughts? My time for posting has been dwindling recently, new job and wedding prep and all.
Anyway, been recently enjoying the dream pop/chill wave sounds of Washed Out. Really soothing.

Shy Child will be back March 1st with a new album entitled Liquid Love. They've generously released their first single, "Criss Cross", which features a longer form composition and LCD Soundsystem-like patience!

Today marks the release of the first solo album from Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas! The album is called Phrazes for the Young and has a broad musical sound, encompassing Strokes-lite to 80s to R&B. First single "11th Dimension" sounds like Julian's trademark deadpan singing over very 80s synths...
