Phantogram - Fall In Love

Alex on December 10 2013

Phantogram doing what Phantogram does best - killing it musically. I can only assume this is what they do best, for all I know what they do best is make a killer shepherd's pie.

Night Panther - Queen Bitch

Alex on December 09 2013

Dear Night Panther, I was convinced you would be a one hit (EP) wonder. I was wrong. Please accept my apology in form of internet blog post. So very sorry, Alex.

Eyedress - Nature Trips

Alex on December 06 2013

I can't wait to hear this track in Ryan Gosling's latest flick.. the one where he never speaks and plays some sort of hit man racist plumber. AMIRITE?!

Jens Lekman - A Sweet Summernight on Hammer Hill

Alex on December 05 2013

I think one of the main deciding factors of my never visiting Facebook is the fact that I don't give two shits about a list. 10 crazy facts about blueberries grown in the artic tundra during aurora borealis is hardly something I give a fuck about. Most notably I've seen the list regarding things mentally confident people don't do - I haven't read it but I can tell you exactly what they don't do - they don't need to validate themselves by reading a list. Can we please get a social network worth a shit again? I can see myself in 20 years, with the same enthusiasm my mom speaks about the 60's, gallivanting to my son Zeus about the hay day of the internet where everyone was free and you didn't have to deal with your crazy religious zealot of an aunt or your far right wing ex girlfriend's mom in your news feed just to keep up with old college friends you'll probably only see at weddings anyways. On a lighter note: this song!

Built to Spill - Time Trap

chris on December 04 2013

Let me let you in on a little secret. No matter how many young guns come on to the music scene, no one will ever be able to touch Built to Spill. They may gain notoriety and global fame, but there has never been a band with such heart. The lyrical prowess of Doug Martsch is beyond. It's beyond.

CHVRCHES - It's Not Right But It's Okay

Alex on December 02 2013

CHVRCHES covering Whitney Houston? I don't even need to listen to this to know it's amazing. Is it right? Probably not... but it's okay.

Lemonade - Skyballer

chris on December 02 2013

Hello gang. I hope not everyone had a falling out with their family. Nothing makes Thanksgiving like a knock down drag out fight with you closest of kin.

Holy Ghost! - Hold On We're Going Home

Chris on November 27 2013

Nothing like a road trip breakfast. Combos, Redbull and beef jerkey. Happy Thanksgiving for all those on the road. This one goes out to Nic and the Millhiser gang.

Alvvays - Marry Me

chris on November 26 2013

It always seems like towards the holidays, everyone at work vanishes and you are left holding all responsibility. It's like oh chris can you help me with my work and do this presentation and can you mop?

Luke Temple - Katie

Alex on November 25 2013

Thanksgiving has descended upon us like a golden eagle on to a baby mountain goat mindlessly grazing the mountain side. For those non American listeners unfamiliar with Thanksgiving its when we try to physically hurt ourselves by eating too much food.
