Duh.

Although I actually am pretty ambivalent about NMH. I'd probably end up going just to feel superior to my friends, which is definitely the wrong reason.

I thought feeling superior to everyone else was the only reason people listened to NMH? I mean it can't be the music surely?

Also to the guy who recommended The Weeks; you are awesome and this band is awesome, thought I wouldn't classify The Weeks as folk-rock.

Said the Whale dropped a new single called I Love You pretty recently. Huge departure from their old style, but it's very catchy. I'm not to sure on how I would compare it to their other material, but I'm excited to hear the upcoming EP.

What the gently caress Daniel left Yuck? That's not the kind of news I like to hear. Their self-titled was on repeat endlessly for me last summer so I'm real sad to hear it.



Anyway, here's some poo poo I've been digging since I posted here last.

The Thermals - Born To Kill
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLlonHZP9Fk

Now We Can See
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJu611UdfxA

I've never heard of these guys before but I love the energy of their songs. Their lyrics are a little curious and I'm guessing 'Born To Kill' has some kind of religious meaning behind it. Regardless, they make some catchy as hell songs that are perfect for summer



Born Ruffians - Needle
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQGoLBqgNVM

I'm sure there are fans of Born Ruffians here, but I just listened to their recent album and it's kind of blowing me away. This song in particular, 'Needle' gives me the tingles. The way it progresses into this really groovy foot stomper with little drum, guitar, and keyboard subtleties contrasts well with the alternating sparseness. This song is loving brilliant.



FIDLAR - Gimmie Something
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=US_dyNEOmm8

These guys have been getting their tracks played on Sirius XMU here and there. Their entire self-titled from February is awesome. Songs like 'Cheap Beer' and 'Stoked and Broke' give this angsty, "hardcore" feel, but 'Gimmie Something' and '5 to 9' are really smooth and melodic. The entire album is tight and good at what it's supposed to be, which is the music of and for bastard L.A. kids making bad life choices.



The Soft Pack - Tallboy
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPjK_TNaac8

I'm a sucker for synths and smooth melodies.



Palma Violets - Best of Friends
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=poFXWUTEs1k

I guess lo-fi, distant vocals are making a come back. Love the drums in this track.




Fitz and the Tantrums - Out Of My League
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZm51YTAFiE

Beautiful song. The band's guitarless, but they more than make up for it. Heard a live session with these guys and they seem really down to earth and kind too. Good stuff.



French Films - All The Time You Got
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPM02tQGTuY

I loved this band's previous album 'Imaginary Future'. It's pretty run of the mill upbeat rock with synths thrown in here and there. Their new release 'White Orchid' isn't as good, but it's still got some solid tracks. This one is my favorite so far. If you like it definitely check out their last release. Here are a couple tracks from 'Imaginary Future' that really got me into these guys.

Golden Sea - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HrysKg1te0
Convict - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ViO_hZV4epo



Gonna definitely shout out that the new Vampire Weekend album is great and so is Local Native's new release. I never could really get into Local Natives but Hummingbird is so god drat good. The music video for 'Heavy Feet' made my heart sink a little :/ Phoenix's Bankrupt! is stellar, but I'm gonna have to agree that Dinosaur Jr.'s cover of 'Entertainment' just might be better than the original.


Other than that, Surfer Blood's single 'Demon Dance' has got me stoked for their new release coming up too. It's gonna be a great summer.

This to me was too funny/ridiculous to not post it. The best part is the fact they deleted it like some E/N bullshit within ten minutes. Classic.

I wouldn't be surprised if Payseur wrote this. I love Beach Fossils, but I'll admit Clash The Truth was underwhelming, whiny, and almost made me feel like I was back in my high school post-hardcore, 'deep' music phase. Disappointed to see them reacting like this to the mediocre, and rightfully so, reviews.

Hell yeah. This song is great. I just love that lyric "we don't think we're special sir, we know everybody is!" Its so corny but its great. They seem to me a kind of punk/indie band. Not too many indie bands directly tackle political issues outside of Oberst's various bands.

Yeah same with me. I liked the first lp enough, and thought the What A Pleasure EP was great start to finish. I could barely make it through Clash The Truth.. I thought it sucked.

I met them once after they played my college's free spring concert held every year (At a bar the other band they were touring with played at later that evening) and got the elitist vibe from them quiet a bit. (The DIIV and Heavenly Beat guys were still in the band and there as well.)

Also, anyone who invalidates the opinion of other's in that manner is one huge tool. The part about making an "honest living" touring across the world was a joke too. He acts like it isn't loving awesome doing such, just stupid.

A while back somebody posted about an Australian indie-pop-whatever group named Alpine, the group responsible for this video that resembles what I'd imagine an American Apparel work retreat to be like

Anyway, their LP A is for Alpine was released stateside this week. It's a decent listen if you're into that sort of thing.

Also, I don't think anyone has mentioned Mikal Cronin yet — normally I wouldn't gravitate toward someone with "Ty Segall collaborator" as a description, but his new album, MCII, is full of solid, straightforward rock music.

Washed Out was...interesting the last time I saw him/them. He doesn't use the same vocal filtering as the album and the songs are more uptempo. It honestly kind of ruins it for me.

I saw Washed Out like...2 years ago? And they were just okay. I really dig the albums, but yeah, seeing 'em live is a pretty different experience than just listening to the albums, which I normally like when bands do that, but it didn't work out that well in this case. Thinking back on it, it was a pretty forgettable show.

I think, if my youtube exposure to their live sets is any indication, that they've come a long way. I remember seeing a version of Feel it All Around right as the song blew up that was just embarrassing. They did the same track (and others) on KEXP recently and it was really polished - just far enough from the studio version to hold your interest, but at the same time a more faithful and tuneful rendition.

So the new Portugal the Man album is streaming. And I'm really impressed. I've seen some skepticism from some about Danger Mouse being involved, but the album sounds like a natural progression from the last two albums. So far, I'm really liking it. The title track is definitely one of my favorite songs right now, along with "Waves".

Did I misread all the signs?

Alright, so hopefully I am not committing and cardinal sins with this one. I did a quick forum search for this band's unique moniker and didn't find anything so hopefully it's somewhat new to people.

French? Check. Indie? They don't even have a wikipedia page. Deceptive name pronunciation? Roger.

The Aikiu (pronounced eye-que) is a French new-wave band I heard about a few months back. They had a semi-infamous video for the song 'Pieces of Gold' that was interspliced with shots from gay porn. Fast forward to a few days ago when I check out their website and saw they had an album coming out in June. I liked their first song so I checked out the new single and love it. So here is a bit of their stuff, with an album Ghost Youth coming out June 17th.

Oh gently caress yeah, finally! And they won't just be sheet music?

That single's pretty cool. If the rest of the album is akin to this, it's going to be pretty experimental and different than Modern Guilt. Which is cool, because I really dig his more experimental stuff. I also really dug Modern Guilt, but it's been long enough that I want to hear something different from him, and that single proves that I will.
