Grooveshark, Vampire Weekend – Run

Jan 8th, 2010 : by :: Tags: , , ,

Recently, I was at a party and someone was using grooveshark as the source for music. If you haven’t used it yet, this site is pretty awesome. It’s like twitter met pandora and had a lovechild that grew up to be better than both of them. This is just more evidence that pretty soon it’s going to be weird to own physical copies of music.
I also wanted to point out that the Vampire Weekend CD, is releasing in 4 days. There are listening parties happening all over the country, and I went to one last night in Chicago. “Run” is one of my favorite tracks. Overall, this album is easily going to be one of the best of 2010.

Jan 7th, 2010 : by :: Tags: , ,

This is my first post of 2010!  Whoo!  To start off the new year I figured I would go with a remix that has been floating around a while, but not really getting much attention.  Enjoy this Neon Indian remix of Grizzly Bear’s “Cheerleader”.  Happy New Year!

Self – What A Fool Believes (Doobie Brothers Cover)

Alright so for some reason I could not get this song out of my head yesterday to save my life. So I did some digging around and found this kick ass cover by Self on their 2000 release Gizmodgery, an album created entirely with children’s toy instruments. Good stuff, good stuff.

Metric – Collect Call

Jan 1st, 2010 : by :: Tags: ,

Metric’s album “Fantasies” is definitely more upbeat than their older stuff. Although, this album was not my favorite by them, I enjoyed it a lot. Canadian singer, Emily Haines has a lot to offer. There were many tracks to be liked from this album including “Help I’m Alive,” but I feel “Collect Call” is a track that has remnants of the Metric I remember.
