New Release Update

Yeasayer – Odd Blood
Secretly Canadian / buy!

Odd Blood is the second studio album from Brooklyn’s experimental rockers Yeasayer. Fans haven’t seen a new LP from the group since 2007’s All Hour Cymbals, which received a slew of positive attention from all the “right” places. First single “Ambling Alp” was released by the band in late October.

Hot Chip – One Life Stand
Astralwerks / buy!

One Life Stand is the fourth studio album from London-based synth-pop quintet Hot Chip. The album has been held in pretty high anticipation after the success of 2008’s Made In The Dark, and is promised to sound more or less from the same vein.

Angelo Spencer – Et Les Hauts Sommets
K Recs / buy

If you aren’t quite sure why you recognize the name Angelo Spencer let me try and help – he is Kimya Dawson’s French Alp-born husband, who has opened for or been at any Kimya show you might have caught (especially during that wonderful Juno phase. Well, Angelo is more than capable of standing alone on his own two feet – which is obvious upon first listen to Et Les Hauts Sommets (translation: At The High Peaks), an instrumental piece you’ll be happy fell into your lap this month.

New Release Update – January 18

Spoon – Transference

Merge Records / buy!

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like Austin-based, Britt Daniel backed Spoon. Music lovers tend to come from one of two viewpoints on the foursome – they either absolutely love them or are luke-warmly interested. Either way, I have a feeling their 7th release, Transference, is going to be a crowd-pleaser.
MP3: Spoon – “Written In Reverse ”

Surfer Blood – Afro Coast

Kanine / buy!

Every year there is a bucket full of over-hyped, Pitchfork-approved, blogged-to-death groups that put out a few good singles and one mediocre album. Surfer Blood seemed to be a good candidate for this category, but after hearing their debut Afro Coast , I have to say – this time the hypers got it right. These Palm Beach, 90’s throwback rockers are worth listening to.
MP3: Surfer Blood – “Swim”

Eels – End Times

Vagrant / buy!

When it comes to Eels, you pretty much know what you’re going to get. E has his scratchy, melancholy vocals and minimal guitar/piano/drum sound set in stone, so you’ll either like it or you won’t. The four track recording sounds bare and personal, and that’s because it is – one listen to the lyrics will have you uncomfortably involved in E’s loneliness and misery… just the way you like it.
MP3: Eels – “Little Bird”

News Briefs: New Arcade Fire, Rivers Crashes, Tour Dates and More

Cuomo & Co. in Tour Bus Accident; Doesn’t Travel With Bandmates?


Rivers Cumo, his wife, baby daughter, nanny, and driver were in a fairly serious tour bus accident that lead to some broken ribs and cancelled shows. Apparently the van hit black ice and the bus crashed into a ravine, harming mostly Rivers and his wife. Although this is definitely distressing news, and I hope nothing but a speedy recovery to all involved, it made me wonder: do many bands travel in separate tour buses? Am I the only one surprised none of the Weezer band-mates were in the bus with Rivers?

KEXP Join The iPhone Craze; Life Continues To Be Good For Apple Users

iPhones have been getting better and better with the release of various Apps for your favorite music streamers. Cincinnati-gone-Austin Internet-only radio station WOXY have an App, as do Chicago-based Daytrotter. Next to join the list? Your favorite (not your) Community radio station, KEXP in Seattle. Go get you some of that, and while you’re at it check out that one iPhone App where you point your phone at music and it tells you what’s playing…crazy!

Arcade Fire Talks New Album; World Becomes Better Place

If you’ve been crafting a best-of-the-decade list, then you’ve probably got Arcade Fire on the brain. You might not be sure how you’ve survived since 2007 without a new release from the Canadian Orchestral sensations, but trust me when I say you only have to wait a little bit longer. There’s no album cover, or track listing, or sample mp3’s (yet), but word on the digital-street is that Arcade Fire’s third release is set for a May birthdate. The only other savory detail as of yet is that Markus Dravs is producing (see: Engineer for “Neon Bible”) and has apparently gone on the record saying that these new songs are “better”. Commence hyperventalation.

CSS and Tilly Make A Porno; Er…Live Concert DVD


Your favorite tap-dancer-backed indie band Tilly and the Wall hit the road with CSS last year, and someone taped it! The resulting 73-minute DVD hits shelves January 12th with behind the scenes footage and on-stage antics of the music making variety. For a full set list, click here.

New Release Update

Here’s What’s Hitting The Shelves This Week

STS9->
Ad Explorata
1320 Records->

Sound Tribe Sector Nine (or STS9 to their best of friends) is an instrumental “post-rock dance” 5-piece that’s been around since 1998. Ad Explorata is their 6th studio release on their self-run label, 1320 records. If you like their multi-sound infusion, be sure to check out one of their many side projects. In the meantime, stream “Oil and Water” below. [I’ll buy that!]
MP3: STS9 – “Oil & Water”

The King of Rocksprings->
The Milkman Vs. The Postman Problem
self-released

The Milkman Vs. The Postman Problem is the debut EP from Brooklyn artist and musician Scott Sosebee. Sosbee has drummed for bands all across the board, including (most notably) Athens, GA’s Little Red Rocket. After relocating to New York and getting in a pretty serious trapeze accident, Sosbee decided it was time to release some solo work. Sample “The Perfect Guy”, opening track from The Milkman VS. The Postman Problem, self-released tomorrow. [I’ll buy that!]
MP3: The King Of Rocksprings – “The Perfect Guy”

Yuuki Matthews ->
Music For Savage Imagery
Asthmatic Kitty ->

It’s pretty rare that Sufjan Stevens backed Asthmatic Kitty Records puts out an album that I’m not a fan of, which is why I’m not surprised to be digging the debut release from Yuuki Matthews. Music For Savage Imagery is a part of Asthmatic Kitty’s “Library Catalogue Music”, a collection of instrumental albums being released by the label. Seattle-based Matthews released this album in hopes that it may be used as the background of movies or digital projects in the future. Check out track “Conquerors”, below. [I’ll buy that!]
MP3: Yuuki Matthews – “Conquerors”
