My friend Alix was cleaning out some old records the other day and asked if I’d make a good home for them. She has a good taste in tunes so I said, “ok.”

One of the records she dropped off yesterday, Explosions in the Sky‘s The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place.

A beautiful record.

I want to shout out to all the free radicals that check out the blog, “heart” some of the songs on Hype Machine, or throw me a “like” on Facebook.

I read this study on Nat Geo about how success breeds success… and those first few likes or attention can snowball to greater attention. The article might be worth your time if you’re in a band or any sort of attention industry.

Still loving Waters.

My man Pol was saying that Courtney Barnett was pretty choice on Jimmy Fallon last night. You should watch that.

Lastly, The New Arcades remixed Kyla La Grange’s “The Knife.”

There we go….

Go with yourself.

 got an email the other day alerting me to a KCRW 4 songs you should listen to right now blog post.  The group they were highlighting is called Gold Spectacles.  The London band is still pretty new, just 300 “likes” on Facebook but some positive hype translating to some spins on soundcloud for their song “Steal You Away.”  I think KCRW called it baroque-pop?  Groovy beat…I could get into this song if I were on a mission.

London is a big place, so it stands to reason we’d hear from another group form the Capital.  New Arcades so a synth dream wave.  I kinda hear some Hot Fuss era Killers on this song “Don’t Let Go.” They say, “Think of blue skies, urban nightlife and hazy sunrises…”

Finally a band from Leeds aping the style of Vampire Weekend.  The group is called Marsicans.  This song is right good fun.

Go with yourself.
