Let's listen to some new music. And fight...sexily.


Well, that was fast...Alaska In Winter is back on November 18th with their sophomore album, Holiday! "Berlin", I have to say is sounding a little more Bright Like Neon Love Cut Copy...

"Eine Kleine Nacht Musik" is the name of a famous Mozart piece and also the alias of Henry Smithson, aka Riton. The name for Riton's new project is quite appropriate - in German, "Eine Kleine Nacht Musik" roughly translates to "A Little Night Music", and krautrock influences are abound. On "La Serenissima" we hear EKNM updating the classical piece with Justice-like results...a little night music indeed!

The Standard is back today with a new album, Swimmer! "Hotel" finds the Portland-based rockers exploring their more sentimental side and experimenting with roomier production.

I'm currently enjoying the work of Norfolk, Virginia band 1888. I think their sound sits comfortably between Pinback, The Sea and Cake, and Kings of Leon. Probably good for a late night chillout!

Antibalas has been on my mind recently - mainly cause I'm excited to see them this weekend at the Treasure Island Music Festival! Did you know that they contributed guest horns to TV On The Radio's Return To Cookie Mountain and Foals' Antidotes? Conveniently, both those bands are also on the bill on Saturday...

The internets told me today that the new +/- album, Xs on Your Eyes comes out on 10/21. The first single, "Snowblind", features fantastic guitar tone, driving percussion, and a marvelous build. Mark your calendars!

When Death From Above 1979 broke up, Jesse F. Keeler went off and continued to explore his dancey side with MSTRKRFT while Sebastien ducked out of the spotlight for a while. I'm glad to report that Sebastien is back with a new solo project! He's got an album coming out on October 21 entitled, "Sebastien Grainger & The Mountains". It's not quite as punky, it's a little more anthemic, but most importantly, it still rocks!

After four long years, The New Year is back today with their new self-titled album. With the time off, they seem to have taken up the piano as an additional songwriting tool and grown more confident on vocals!

Some quick highlights:

  • "Folios" starts off the album perfectly with a four minute instrumental build. It's sort of like warming up to an old friend you haven't seen in a while!
  • "The Company I Can Get" waltzes into everyone's sentimental side.
  • The resigned yet optimistic "Seven Days & Seven Nights".

    The Dan Le Sac Vs. Scroobius Pip cd was released officially in the States this past Tuesday. It's some pretty addictive spoken word over electronic beats. A lot edgier than The Streets!

    Gruff Rhys is the lead singer and guitarist of Super Furry Animals. Taking time out from his main focus, he's managed to record a couple solo albums that also involve singing in Welsh!
