Arcade Fire :: New Album Teaser Tracks

May 25th, 2010 : by :: Tags: , ,


A. The Suburbs




AA. Month of May

Arcade Fire has presumably completed their third record and plan on releasing it later this summer. And so they have put out this nifty little widget that contains two teaser tracks, “The Suburbs” and “Month of May”. This widget is kick ass by the way, I think you’ll enjoy it as much as the two songs. I know I did.

Jape -Ocean of Frequency & Borrowed Time With Peace home demos

Jape

Here’s another gem from Ireland. Jape was formed in 2003 as a side project by Richie Egan while playing in The Redneck Manifesto (really sweet experimental rock band). They’ve made some noise since then, winning the Choice Music Prize for Irish Album of the Year 2008 with Ritual. Richie’s headin’ to the studio in June, so until then here are a couple home demos of his latest, “Borrowed Time With Peace” and “Ocean of Frequency.”

Toro y Moi – Leave Everywhere 7

May 23rd, 2010 : by :: Tags: , , ,

The new 7 inch for “Leave Everywhere” has been much talked about over the past few days.  I just wanted to add newdust’s voice to the chorus by saying that this song is great.  It is a departure in production style for Toro y Moi.  I am anxious to see if this is a summer time fling or a long term commitment to a new sound.  The new single is out July 20th on Carpark Records.  Enjoy!

Ok… its Friday.  You aren’t working.  Here is an awesome pop song by Foster the People that will have you singing along almost instantly.  I haven’t come across a chorus this catchy in a long time.  Happy Friday!

PS: Finders credit goes to Lynn S.  Cheers!

The Zoltars’ CD-R Party June 5th @ Beerland, ATX

The Zoltars

I will never grow tired of the simplistic greatness that is punk music, with its strummy guitar riffs and 4/4 drumbeats. Especially duos and trios like Austin, TX’s The Zoltars. They are having a CD-R party at Beerland in ATX on June 5th (everyone who comes gets a free copy of their new album). Check out these great tunes from the album and grab your free copy June 5th!
