Say hello to a new EP (Alternate Worlds) from Son Lux . It seems he’s called upon everyone’s favorite indie darling (I suppose she’s not quite indie anymore…) Lorde for some help on this reimagining of his last album Lanterns. The song is quite haunting and reminiscent of Gotye’s more experimental work. Check out “Easy” below, and head over to Son Lux’s band camp page to purchase and preview more of Alternate Worlds.

Thanks as always to the amazing All Things Go for pointing us to this jam.
Tuesday March 4th, 2014 22:20 Erik Hassle: Ready For You
I’ve been riding an R&B kick these past few weeks, so you can imagine how excited I was to see a new EP (Somebody’s Party) from Erik Hassle released yesterday. This song in particular is tickling my fancy, but the other five are just as smooth and listenable. Check out “Ready For You” below… damn can this kid sing.
Wednesday February 26th, 2014 21:12 RAC: Tear You Down (ft. Alex Ebert)
I don’t know exactly what it is musically speaking, but there is something so enjoyable about an RAC song. In my opinion I don’t think the man or outfit get their due credit. He might try the same move every time, but it’s a damn fine move.
Of course getting Alex Ebert from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zero fame also helps. Dare you not to play this one on repeat.
Oh by the way. RAC has a two part album coming out. All new songs. Sweetness.
Tuesday February 25th, 2014 17:27 Coldplay: Midnight
This morning Coldplay pulled a “Beyonce” and released a new single unannounced. As with most of the band’s recent output, I’m not really sure what to make of this song… (Can’t you just make A Rush Of Blood To The Head Part II and call it a day?). “Midnight” sounds a bit like what I imagine Bon Iver would if he hung up his guitar for a synth and a vocoder. Hmm…
Check out the video for “Midnight” below.
Saturday February 8th, 2014 17:44 Robert Leather: Live In Boston
That’s the delicious lickings of some local music if I ever heard it. Local that is if you live in the New England area. If you, say, live in Alaska well than you should really broaden your horizon and listen to some music from other parts of the country. Some folk, lots of love and finger thumping guitar and violin work from from Robert Leather. Listen are your peril.
Check out their goodwill on their basecamp page. You can download their album for free.
Wednesday January 8th, 2014 20:36 Lightwaves: Starting to Believe
This song is almost too awesome. It’s like the music equivalent of a step back Dirk Nowitzki shot. Listen at your own peril. Listen and get ready to repeat.
Wednesday January 8th, 2014 20:24 John Doney: Wishing Well
Back to our roots. I know it’s been awhile and we have been left this place pretty derelict. But we are back with local music to boot. I don’t know much about John Doney but his music makes me smile. Smiling is great. So is John’s music. Check it out on Basecamp.
