Things You Should Be Listening To:
Warpaint's "The Fool"
Oh my lord, this may be on my top ten list (the first half, anyway). If Melissa Auf der Maur and Karen O had a three-way with Jessikca Fodera, and then locked themselves in the studio with a bottle of vodka this might be the accompanying soundtrack. It's dabbling in dark places without drowning.
This reminds me of Ben Folds and Harvey Danger. This might get on my nerves later in the week, but for now I'm enjoying the change of pace
Matt & Kim's "Sidewalks"
Dance-y and quirky and snare drums and tubas and candy and...
You know I totally adore these guys, right?
It's like a gigantic wall of Erasure and bass guitar.
Atlantic/Pacific's "Meet Your New Love"
Soft and sensitive pop (without channeling Chris Carrabba)--perfect with the weather we're having. Atlantic/Pacific is a semi-supergroup (maybe a Super B-Group?), and I really like where they are going with this. It's the Radio Dept minus the Scandinavian Fuzz.
I'm sorry to say The Autumn Defense's latest, "Once Around," put me to sleep. Maybe I just have questionable taste, but meh.
Danbert Nobacon's "Woebegone"
Black Dub's debut.
...I don't even want to talk about it.
