The Walkmen's "Heaven"

Below is the new video from The Walkmen for the title track of their new album Heaven, which came out last week. The song basically sounds like every other Walkmen song. Which means it sounds fantastic. I got to see them live in the winter of 2010. A real treat, don’t miss them if you [Read More...]

"Hey! The Zooey Deschanel Show"

Noël Kristi Wells does a mean Zooey Deschanel impression: That’s her take on acting, here she is on music: More episodes: Episode 3: Womanhood Episode 4: Christmas Episode 5: Love Episode 6: The Internet Episode 7: Fashion and (bonus episode 7 laugh outtakes) It’s worth noting these parodies began before Zooey’s show “New Girl” premiered.

"Sorry OK Yes" Reminds Me of the Black Keys

Check out the catchy crunchy electric guitars on this song “So” by the band Sorry OK Yes. Especially give this a listen if you love the old school Black Keys (as I do). That’s the basic vibe here. Their stuff can be purchased here, though I don’t see anything for this song there. I haven’t [Read More...]

Beach House's "Zebra" (Camels With Hammers Blogathon Insomniac Theater)

I saw Beach House at the Pitchfork Music Festival in 2010 and they were incredible. This song is from the excellent album Teen Dream [CD + DVD] Your Thoughts? [Read more...]

Tegan and Sara in "Body Work" and "Carpool Confessional"

The song is credited as primarily Morgan Page’s but all the singing is Tegan and Sara so mediocre lyrics aside, I’ll consider this one a Tegan and Sara song. It’s great to see and hear them again: AND they’re recording their new album finally! And they’re filming all their trips to and from the studio [Read More...]

My Apartment's Very Clean Without You

A new Garfunkel and Oates song with a neat animated video: There’s also now a hilarious official video for “Save the Rich”. I think it’s funnier than the song itself: Both songs can be found on their new album Slippery When Moist. Your Thoughts? [Read more...]

A Little Friday Afternoon Harmony

Covering the Jason Mraz song “Lucky”, sisters Camille and Haley Harris come off as a really sweet and charming pair of young women with gorgeous, well harmonized voices: Wasn’t that beautiful? Okay, the ugly complications of politics are below the fold. Skip that stuff if you’d like to end your experience of these talented and [Read More...]

Shelley Segal on Her Religious Producer and Pseudonymous Band Members For Her Atheist Album

Kylie recently interviewed Shelley Segal who wrote An Atheist Album (which I very much liked and recommended you pick up). Particularly notable revelations were that the album’s producer was religious and that the band members, fearing for their careers in America, opted not to have their names listed in the credits of the album rather than [Read More...]
