Song of the Day : [10/29]
Wild Yaks : River May Come One of the most exciting and enthusiastic bands I’ve ever encountered has been Wild Yaks, fronted, surprisingly, by a balding, 30-something, self-proclaimed “shoe salesman from New Jersey” named Rob. Rob is dedicated to his craft and dedicated to his fans. He sends out semi-regular emails to pretty much everyone […]

SONG OF THE DAY : [10/25]
Neon Indian : Deadbeat Summer Alan Palomo is Neon Indian, the male musician who albeit being recognized only recently will have already toured the world come 2010. His music is melancholic and memorable, based around childhood events, high school crushes, and hopeless romance. Deadbeat Summer feels like a stoned summer of youthful daydreams, warped and relaxed. Palomo’s album […]

Juliet Commagere : Overcome Juliet Commagere may appear to be a brand new face in the music world, but like many of the surprising engenes that seem to pop up out of nowhere, Commagere has some thick roots in the industry.

La Roux : I’m not your toy I won’t even bother with an introduction or description here. If you are still unaware of La Roux then this track will introduce you to their 80’s 8bit vintage synth driven style. What more can I say, some think La Roux may not have delivered as solid a […]

Song of the Day : [10/16]
The first track on this 1968 album holds the same name as the album itself and for well-deserved reason. It is French pop at its finest even for those who do not know a word of French. Though it is about saying goodbye it seems to raise spirits with its light and playful charm. Comment Te Dire Adieu is infective in every way - from the drums to the lyrical melody, the words to Françoise' sweet fragile voice.

Röyksopp : This must be it (Thin White Duke Remix) The Norwegian duo Royksopp never fail to amaze me when it comes to delivering fresh new innovative material. With accompanying vocals from Swedish singer Karin Dreijer of Fever Ray they have once again hit the mark. Since the album version of this track has been […]

And it seems this is one highly anticipated film that will live up to expectations. In anticipation for the actual movie, I suggest you listen to its soundtrack. A compilation […]

Song of the Day [10-11]
Billie the Vision and the Dancers : A man from Argentina Billie the Vision and the Dancers. The brainchild of Lars Lindquist and some honest friends. This track typifies their simple and sincere approach to music. A great song to  smoke cigarettes to.
