Canada Signing In
Welcome to Bridging the Atlantic, the international blog sensation. I am coming in from Ottawa, Ontario and Andrew will be keeping your hipster playlist bumping from jolly old London, England. Periodically we'll have guest features from our friends, and though I am hesitant to forecast that our writing staff will multiply in both size and physical attractiveness in the coming months, it's safe to say that random contributions are a guarantee. Our tastes in music are diverse, so whatever it is you like from TV On The Radio to Sonic Youth to Peter Bjorn and John to Spank Rock to MF Doom, we'll do our best to accommodate you.
Klaxons - Golden Skans (zShare)
New Rave? Thanks to the good ol' NME these guys have been thrown into a blossoming pseudo-genre. Labels aside, Klaxons craft some dope shit that you can dance along with...for Rapture and Hot Chip fans.
Frightened Rabbit - Be Less Rude (zShare)
Frightened Rabbit are two brothers who take on drum and guitar duties, playing Americanized Glasgow indie. Harmonicas are probably my eighth favorite thing in the world, just ahead of bungee jumping and narrowly trailing Dave Coulier.
