dirty projectors

Dirty Projectors just released a video for the track “Impregnable Question” off 2012’s Swing Lo Magellen, and it basically features a dude running through the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.

I can’t decide if I’m really digging this song, or if I’m just in love with the visuals – but does it really matter? Just let me zone out looking at the landscape and wondering when I’ll have both the time and money to visit these magnificent places.

 

arcade fire afterlife

Damn this fall has been flying by.  Doesn’t it seem like just yesterday that you heard that that Arcade Fire was releasing another album?  Now that album, Reflektor, is being released next week.

As they ramp up for that release, they’ve released this lyric video for a new song, “Afterlife”:

AlunaGeorge‘s debut album Body Music has a ton of great tracks on it beyond the songs you’ve already heard, and one of them is “Best Be Believing”.

Now the duo has released a video for that track, so you can start to jam out to that too.  The video features Aluna Francis being forced to attend a “Dance Rehabilitation Clinic”, which basically looks like Girl, Interrupted plus dancing.  Read More

I was all ready to be mad at Charli XCX when she cancelled a bunch of tour dates – including her date here in Austin – to open for Paramore’s tour.  “She’ll never reschedule”, I moaned, “And then the next time she comes through town she’ll be in a much bigger venue.”

Well, Charli proved me wrong because she rescheduled the date only a few months later and in the same venue. And when she finally gets here, it looks like she’ll have some new music to perform.  Read More

dance apocalyptic

You may have heard this track back when it was released over the summer, but it’s fresh in my mind now that I’ve had a week to listen to Janelle Monáe‘s amazing new album, The Electric Lady.

Be honest, have you listened to anything except “Q.U.E.E.N.”?  If you haven’t, I don’t blame you; that track alone pushes the album into 10 top category. But you haven’t taken a listen to the album at large, now is the time.

“Dance Apocalyptic” might not be the best track on the album, but it’s certainly one of the catchiest.  Let it be your introduction to the rest of The Electric Lady:


 
Listen for: “What’s the matter? / Your chicken taste like pork? / You have triplets instead of twins? / Does your food taste plastic?”


You can also check out the video for the track, which is absolutely worth 4 minutes of your time (and then 20 more minutes when you watch it 5 more times):

summer camp

One look at the font/artwork for this new single from Summer Camp and you’re instantly transported back to 1980s.  Which just so happens to be Summer Camp’s favorite decade.

Though their music sounds decidedly less retro to me than their earlier work – particularly the Young EP – the influences are definitely still there.
