Yeasayer is such a great band and this track come from the solid compilation Dark Was the Night. The album was put together in support of the Red Hot Foundation which is an AIDS-related charity. Great cause and I'm psyched to hear something new from these Brooklyn boys.
Crystal Antlers' 2008 EP is on regular rotation on my Zune, but this track is huge! Also anticipating the release of full-length release Tentacles.
Such feel good music. The Pains... reminds me of the first time I heard Peter, Bjorn and John's "Young Folks". I immediately wanted to sing along.
Handsome Furs kinda sounds like Wolf Parade, for obvious reasons, but substitute the prominent keys for sampling. Really loving the new album Face Control. Sheer danceable rock music. If you have a chance to see this group live, DO IT. Last night I saw them here in Ottawa and it was one of the most energized shows I've seen in a while.
She's Quebec's answer to Adele. I know she was featured on Perez Hilton and Coeur de Pirate is not for everyone, but I love the feel-good vibe and her voice is cute as hell!
Have a great weekend ladies and gents!
