Low, the husband and wife duo of Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker, have been making beautiful music together for 20 years, and on The Invisible Way, their 10th full-length studio album, the lovely, haunting harmonies and melodies that highlight their distinctive sound are once again in strong evidence. Produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, the album’s sound… Continue reading Low: The Invisible Way (Album Review)
Alright. Let me just say that this Beach House video is totally amazing. It features Ray Wise, best known for his role as Laura Palmer’s father Leland Palmer in David Lynch’s epic Twin Peaks series. “Wishes”, directed by Eric Wareheim, is equally as imaginative, other-worldly and surreal as Wise’s famed role.
Last October, we received a taste of London band Still Corners‘ follow-up to their 2011 debut, Creatures of an Hour, with a new single called “Fireflies”. The song was the first to be released from the band’s forthcoming 2013 sophomore LP Strange Pleasures. We now have “Berlin Lovers”, the second taste.
Aubrey Plaza is one of those actresses that has a pretty intense following. And I fit that mold; she is among my favorite actresses thanks to her roles in Parks & Rec and Safety Not Guaranteed. Plaza stars in the video for “Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings” by Father John Misty. Emotional and destructive, she does… Continue reading Father John Misty: Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings (Video)
Have you heard this yet!? I’m talking about “Kingfisher Call Me” by The Ruby Suns off their forthcoming LP Christopher. The song is giving me intense chills right now! It’s easily the best thing I’ve heard ever from The Ruby Suns. Check minute 3:08. It’s like the end of “TMNT Mask” by Chad VanGaalen (off… Continue reading The Ruby Suns: Kingfisher Call Me
Taking notes from electro-pop bands like Purity Ring, Still Corners add some heavier beats in their new song “Fireflies”. However, songwriter Greg Hughes and vocalist Tessa Murray don’t stray too far from their origins off Creatures of an Hour.
You know, I remember picking up Love And Distance by The Helio Sequence upon its release way back in 2004. The band was young then; well, younger. Funny to think the release date of that album is rapidly approaching a decade past.
Sera Cahoone is back with a new LP on Sub Pop called Deer Creek Canyon, and with the announce of the new album comes a song from it. With “Naked”, Cahoone sounds more confident and self-aware than what we’ve heard in the past — even the phenomenal title track to Only As The Day is… Continue reading Sera Cahoone: Naked MP3
Teen Dream, Beach House‘s last LP, came in as my number 2 album of 2010. Within its cover are 10 songs, not a single one weak. Beach House is back with Myth off their forthcoming album Bloom and if this song is telltale for what we can expect, the new album could be a solid… Continue reading Beach House: Myth
Of all Fleet Foxes‘ collective works to date, none have impressed me as much and as thoroughly as “The Shrine / An Argument”. Off their latest LP, Helplessness Blues, the song is a medley of sorts, an elongated story with various movements. It’s downright exciting to see the song played out in an eight-minute video,… Continue reading Fleet Foxes: The Shrine / An Argument (Video)
