Le Sheik Rhat is the latest from four-piece surf-pop rock outfit Naive Thieves, a stellar EP that somehow managed to dodge my radar for almost a year now. Great guitar licks, soft, tasty beats, and killer melodies are jam-packed into this six track EP, making for one heck of a listen. Swing over to their bandcamp to purchase a digital or hard copy.
I can’t get enough of this remix by Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend. The auto-tune, the filters, the reverb, the drums… its great. To be honest, I heard “Early Warnings” about a year ago and I am embarrassed to say it didn’t stick with me. Alas, I have come around and this is one of those remixes that makes you like the original song even more. If you like the style of the guys in Vampire Weekend you will like Foreign Born. It is catchy, sincere, and damn good. Check out their album Person to Person on Secretly Canadian. Enjoy!

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.

Vampire Weekend is getting closer to releasing their well-anticipated album, “Contra.” Earlier, I posted a track they released titled “Horchata.” This video for “Cousins,” builds upon that and gives just a little more insight into what to expect from their new album. As always with Vampire Weekend, the song is quite catchy. Unfortunately, they didn’t release the track to download. The video is very playful and simple; I think it’s the most fun anyone can have in an alley way of New York. I am really looking forward for the album to be released, January just can’t come soon enough.
