Passion Pit - The Reeling

. Wednesday, April 29, 2009

The new video from Passion Pit is of a song off of their first full length album. The Chunk Of Change EP showed lots of promise, and based on what has been released so far, the full length should build on that. The full album will be released Manners (Amazon) on May 19th

Stereogum today linked to a good remix from Calvin "I like them carrying a little-bitty weight girls" Harris. Here's the link

The Knife - Heartbeats

. Tuesday, April 28, 2009

An oldie but goodie. This song always makes me feel happy. It's on The Knife's album Deep Cuts (Amazon) (iTunes)

Here is a link to an acoustic cover that's not too bad.

M83 - We Own The Sky

. Wednesday, April 22, 2009

I realize I just posted some M83, but I figured since I finally found a link to the new video that I would post again. Like I said, this was my favorite album from last year, so it deserves extra special treatment from my perspective.

This entry was the winner in the contest to be the official video for We Own The Sky, and was ultimately selected Anthony Gonzalez himself. While I think it was a fine selection, the song itself outshines the visuals, so do yourself a favor and get Saturdays=Youth (Amazon) (iTunes)

The Delve Player doesn't come through on some RSS readers, so here is also a link to the youtube version.

Mastodon - Oblivion

. Tuesday, April 21, 2009

I'm a big fan of Mastodon. I think their new album Crack The Skye (Amazon) (iTunes) is amazing, but in my ears these guys can do no wrong. I enjoy that they change their sound somewhat with every album. I'll be seeing them when they come to town in May, so needless to say I'm excited!

Also if you're a fan of the Mastodon album artwork, most of it has been done by Paul Romano

M83 - Graveyard Girl

. Monday, April 20, 2009

The album Saturdays = Youth was definitely my favorite release from 2008, and that says a lot considering there was plenty to choose from last year. M83 recently released the video for We Own The Sky, but I can't seem to get a good link to the winning video (they held a contest), so instead we have Graveyard Girl, which also happens to be my personal fav from Saturdays = Youth (Amazon) (iTunes)

Bat for Lashes - Daniel

. Friday, April 17, 2009

Despite this year seeing releases from some of my favorite artists already, I think I've got to say I've enjoyed the album Two Suns from Bat for Lashes the most so far. Here's where you can find it: (Amazon) (iTunes)

The Black Pine - Goodbye Hollywood Forever


This band hasn't really gotten as much press or attention as I think they deserve. Then again, I'm not sure their genre holds much mainstream appeal. Nice cameo in this video by Adam Goldberg. The full album Still Life (iTunes) was released last year. I don't think they sell it on Amazon, so I don't have a link for that.

Passion Pit - Sleepyhead

. Thursday, April 16, 2009

The Chunk of Change EP (Amazon) (iTunes) has been out for a while now, and it's pretty darn good. I hope that an LP release sees them improve the engineering, although maybe that's just me.

Horsepower Productions - Damn It

. Wednesday, April 15, 2009

Liking it. This single has two songs on it Kingstep / Damn it (iTunes)

This video is mislabeled as the song Kingstep, but it's actually the song Damn it

Filthy Dukes - This Rythm


This track has been out for a few months, but their album Nonsense in the Dark (Amazon) just released in late March. I had to import it from the UK, and just received it in the mail earlier in the week.

St. Vincent - Actor Out of Work

. Tuesday, April 14, 2009

I like this new song from St. Vincent.
Her sophomore album Actor (Amazon) is scheduled to be released on May 5th.

Bloc Party - Intimacy


Bloc Party is one of my favorite bands, and I think the album they released last October called Intimacy (Amazon) (iTunes) is just excellent. Here are the videos from some of the singles released so far.

Bloc Party - Talons

Bloc Party - Mercury

The song Mercury is probably not going to be everyone's favorite on the album, but it's mine.

Phoenix - 1901

. Monday, April 13, 2009

This album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix (Amazon) will be released in late may. You can currently get an EP of some songs that will make the album including this one on (iTunes)

Apparently they played on SNL a week or two ago. I had no idea because my DVR is currently not all setup after I moved and got a new box. That exposure should hopefully get them sales, although I would have pushed up the albums release if I was the record company, because by late May that buzz might die down some.

Klaxons - Golden Skans

. Friday, April 10, 2009

I wish these guys would put out a new album. It's been about 2 years since the release of Myths of the Near Future (iTunes), but I still enjoy it. This particular song has been remixed a ton, but the original is one of the best versions.

I also like the Sebastian version from his Remixes album (Amazon) (Listen)

MGMT Remixes

. Thursday, April 9, 2009

On the heels of yesterdays Justice remix post, I decided to keep that trend going with more good remixes. These are probably my favorite two from last year's hyped and well publicized album Oracular Spectacular from MGMT (Amazon) (iTunes). That album was remixed to death last year, yet it's no surprise that these two are standouts considering they are from Justice and Soulwax, who are excellent French and Belgian (respestively) artists.

Electric Feel (Justice Remix) (iTunes)

Original version of Electric Feel (YouTube)

Kids (Soulwax Remix) (iTunes)

Original version of Kids (YouTube)

As much as I love Justice, I think I like the remix of Kids better.

U2 - Get On Your Boots (Justice Remix)

. Wednesday, April 8, 2009

A new Justice remix. I heard this a couple days ago, and I wasn't sure if it was actually the real deal. It has that Justice sound stamped on the U2 single from their No Line On The Horizon album (Amazon) (iTunes). I don't think you can purchase this remix anywhere yet, so I don't have a link for that.

Empire Of The Sun - Walking On A Dream

. Tuesday, April 7, 2009

This album hasn't been released in the US yet, but I believe it will be coming out April 21st. This is the title track, and I like it. I've heard that the rest of the album is so-so, but I'll reserve judgment for myself when it is released. Walking On A Dream (Amazon) (iTunes)

Van She - Strangers


I really like the Van She album V, and wish it would be released in the states. Their self-titled Van-She EP (iTunes) was good but the full album is great! You can import it on Amazon Van She - V

The Presets - Yippyo-Ay

. Monday, April 6, 2009

Saw these guys last week, and really enjoyed it although my hearing was impaired for a good day. I like almost all of their music, but this track is one of my favorites. (iTunes)
