Now, Now

Instant gratification, this is what I get from listening to this new Minny band.   Loving the dual guitar power action, followed up with slick stripped away tender vocals.  This is a great song to have playing to go along with your Monday morning instant coffee!

This creature, the opussum, is one that is ever unappreciated and underrated for it's benevolence to where it chooses to reside. Much like it's name sake, the musical group Opussum bestows many gifts for it's listeners. Have a listen and enjoy your Opussum.

This song is like a tasty soup of sound, thick with flavors that swirl in and out of the ears and when its over... I feel I need to go back for seconds, it's just that good!

It's almost as if they took many of the great elements of 60's and 70's rock, blended it with some modern hipness , shook, stirred and came up with this great track & video!  Here I am loving the retro yet again thanks to Pond!

Lissy Trullie

This is the first song by a New York artist that I've posted on this blog so far I can honestly say sounds like the city.   The beat and desperation and imploding instrumentation just remind me so much of life inside the big apple.  Neat video too!

Covers, can't always say I like them.  Usually the original spirit of the song is stripped away.  That is not the case with Beck's near flawless rendition of "I only have eyes for you."  His love for this song is crystal clear. I know because I love this song too!

Happy 4/20 everybody! Today I bid you munchie up all this week's kitties with Crocodiles!  This tune kept me glued to the screen with its ultra catchy nod to Jesus and Mary Chain-styled sonicular delights.

Cats on Fire

These 'Cats' have absolutely mastered the jangle pop sound, I have listened to this particular track a half a dozen times now in succession. It is a tremendously well constructed song that grows in beauty as the seconds tick away. I'll be back, I have to hear it again!

Beta Frontiers

Very simply, it is a brilliant slow synth song which maybe sometime in the future will be performed in a ballroom of very futuristic looking people, all adorned in the latest technologies and dancing gingerly to this electro gem. Due out today!

Zebra Katz

With a sound piece stripped down to it's bare essentials, its Zebra Katz, and this thick brooding masterpiece that haunts me and makes me go back to it again and again to somehow understand how something so basic can have such enormous power! Thanks Sharlyn for showing me this one.

Real Estate

"Those endless drives,"  on peaceful roads that had some sort of great destination, yet where the journey ended up being the best part due in part to musical accompaniment of fantastic musical acts such  as Real Estate.  Green Aisles will be treasured indeed.

Wait!    There is a combination of familiar sounds in what seems to be a link to a fragmented memory in this track.   It is quite the interesting listening experience.  I hear the voice of the Yeah Yeah Yeah's singer and what I think is new order guitars on some parts.     There are many other things in this auditory soup that I just can't make out, but I feel like I should keep trying.    Superb.

Youth Lagoon

One more for the daydreamers and believers that hold on to the theory that nice things can  happen to you, if you only had the right song for it.  This is one of those songs and it does fit the image of looking upon a cascade of rainbows descendent upon a dreamy meadow.

Sleigh Bells

Not everyone is going to like everything the same, and with Sleigh Bells it is a text book case.  You are either going to love it or hate it.   The choice is yours.  I happen to be on the thumbs up side for this band, mostly because of their originality.  Decide for yourself!

Kid Krule

Just can't say enough about Kid Krule, here he is merging a bit of jazz sensibilities with a bit of old soul lyrics meanwhile utilizing a very peculiar and original vocal style.   It is mind boggling how young he is, I look forward to big things from him in the future.  This is him performing live in January 2012, do yourselves a favor and look at his current material, I really can't say enough positive things about him.

Midnight Magic

Nostalgia &  Deja Vu, they are powerful tools indeed.  This video has all the retro-ey sounds of the 70s and early 80s combined with video effects that seem to be time warped directly from that era as well. This writer will take a moment to look back on his birthday memories with this new, albeit historical video as his musical backdrop.

Listening to this feels like a note somewhere I sent out in a bottle into the ocean a long time ago was finally snatched by someone just moments before smashing into rocks and sinking into nothingness.  What was read from my note?  I don't want to say, but it would go absolutely perfect with this tune this band has created.  Just listen.
