The Mary Onettes have a new EP coming out on April 29th entitled, Dare. Generally, they sound very Cure, Smiths, or New Order-ish. Their new single is is no exception...I imagine this is what a cool prom song would sound like! Sorry, just saw "Adventureland" (great movie) and I've got the 80's on my mind.

Went to a birthday party last weekend, had the pleasure of seeing Wallpaper perform. They brought the party for sure, channeling late 80's and early 90's hip hop, but with some more electronic sounds and vocoder action!

Iron And Wine's got a new album coming out May 19th entitled, Around the Well, a collection of out of print and unreleased tracks! "The Trapeze Artist" is a 9 min epic, and the closer to the album. Throw it on, get lost in it...afterall, it is a beautiful day outside.

Whew, got those taxes done on time! In my rush, I forgot to mention that Metric released their new album, Fantasies, this week. The PR push continues! Following their clever video for "Gimme Sympathy" we have a great remix of "Help, I'm Alive" by The Twelves. It's solid!

Suckers are an indie pop band from NY. I really think they are the kind of band you throw on the speakers on a lazy summer day. I sorta imagine them as a less dancey, and more horn focused Arcade Fire. It's anthemic, but not too brash. Like, let us celebrate this awesome weather without forcing you to dance...by the way, their self-titled cd is out today!

The new Junior Boys album, Begone Dull Care, was released yesterday. Sounds like the boys are still doing their cold and sexy electronic pop thing, except the tiniest bit happier! "Hazel" is giving me sort of a Howard Johnson vibe...

Well, the time has come - Let's Sexy Fighting is going to be DJing between sets at Annie's Social Club in SF this Thursday night, supporting King Loses Crown, Death Valley High, and DJ KRRTEZZ. Prepping my electro-rock set - don't know if this one is going to make it, but it's a catchy remix!
