King Krule - Out Getting Ribs

chris on August 19 2013

Never have Alex and I been so spot on in terms of predictions. This is King Krule's re-recorded and razor sharply honed version of Out Getting Ribs. He's no longer a 16 year old zoo kid, but a 19 year old ginger king.

Cloud Control - Scar

chris on August 19 2013

This song is made up of excellent moments, that come together into a supreme whole. Gestalt baby. The wholeness.

Wise Blood - Alarm

Alex on August 16 2013

Well here we are again, the weekend is upon us and New York and still showing off it's recently acquired awesome weather skills. As I was writing this I bit the crap out of my cheek - why can that happen? We can build fucking spaceships but are still capable of eating the inside of our mouth? Design flaw if you ask me.

Washed Out - Pull You Down

Alex on August 15 2013

New York's weather recently has been killing it 75 and sunny - what more could you ask for? Well maybe a little less human urine and feces on the street but hey-we can't have it all, right?

Au Revoir Simone - Somebody Who

Alex on August 13 2013

She needs somebody who can stay awake... challenge accepted.

I feel like Au Revoir Simone and Haim are in this band battle for 3 piece chick band supremacy. Honestly its a close fight but Au Revoir Simone may have edged out Haim with this single.

Gauntlet Hair - Simple

Alex on August 12 2013

Bit of a Glassjaw vibe to kick off your week. If you're looking for a creative upbeat album to rock out to Gauntlet Hair's new album Stills should hit the spot.

In other news: I've been thinking a lot about the zombie apocalypse - nothing new there - BUT a stroke of brilliance hit me yesterday. After the zombie apocalypse is squared away with the human race should totally harvest energy from zombies. Zombies make for a great energy source - it's like The Matrix meets 28 days later meets Thor (I just really like that movie).

Fear of Men - Doldrums

Alex on August 09 2013

I love when a song starts off as if they're mid song. It's like walking into an absolutely raging party and someone hands you an ice cold beer. This track has Urban Outfitters written all over it. I think I'm going to change left as rain's slogan to "left as rain: before you heard it at Urban Outfitters."

Mitzi - Who Will Love You Now

Alex on August 08 2013

If Holy Ghost and Erland Oye had sex in the back of a Volvo this would be the baby band it produced. Check out their track All I Heard on Soundcloud for another banger.

In other news: When I'm president I will mandate all douche bags must wear a fedora hat to identify them as pricks. Kind of like if the scarlet letter and the situation from jersey shore had sex in the back of a Volvo.

My New Favorite Tribe - Wake Up

chris on August 06 2013

Chris here, coming at you with bad news. Well good news for me. Starting tomorrow I'm officially on island time. I'll be Georgia bound first thing tomorrow morning. St. Simons Island here I come, my old friend. Alex will be man handling the LAR control panel while I'm away.

Lindsay Lowend - It's George

Alex on August 06 2013

Some heady beats for the people. It's like 8 Bit met up with his cousin A Million Bits and they went out together for ice cream - that's a totally legitimate description for a sound, right?
