Happy New Year from!!!

To kick of 2012, I’m sharing a link to Stereogums “most anticipated albums of 2012.” New albums from Andrew Bird, The Shins, Bloc Party, The XX, and the Twilight Sad almost make me forget about this awful hangover. Happy 2012!Read More..

#1. Cut Copy-Zonoscope

2011 was no doubt the best year of my life and there’s no way in hell I’m not going out dancing. Australian electro pop band, Cut Copy, have come quite a long way since their last album in 2008 In Ghost Colours. If you haven’t heard that album, then I definitely suggest you add it [...]Read More..

#2. Bon Iver-Bon Iver

Thank god for that bitch Emma dumping Justin Vernon or we wouldn’t have the Bon Iver we know and love today. Bon Iver, meaning having a “good winter”, is one of the best names symbolizing a band’s origin that I can think of. After the breakup of his previous band and full of heartache, Vernon [...]Read More..

#3. Fleet Foxes-Helplessness Blues

Sorry for the delay on today’s post and the site being down for a little while. was undergoing some maintenance to make it more rad. Back in 2008 Fleet Foxes showed me folk could be cool thanks to their self-titled album. “White Winter Hymnal” allowed hipster men to show women their “seRead More..

#5: Drake-Take Care

#7. Saintseneca-Last & #6. Washed Out-Within and Without + a Surprise

#7. Saintseneca- Last Columbus may have Jeni’s Ice Cream, but it’s also lucky enough to have local folk band, Saintseneca. Brought together, according to the band, by chance and friendship…Saintsenca is a heartfelt musical experience that is filled with incredible talent. The instrumental aRead More..

#8 Neon Indian-Era Extraña

What happens when the band who pretty much branded chillwave comes out with a 2nd album? Well, they redefine it. Their last album Psychic Chasms was an incredibly unique experience, but sometimes felt a little too chaotic for its own good. Era Extraña takes everything I liked about Neon Indian, and creates Read More..

#9: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart-Belong

I don’t think the definition of “indie pop” can get any clearer than with NYC based band The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. Another fantastic example of an amazing sophomore album, whenever I want to be in an exceptionally happy mood I put on Belong. Catchy guitar and lead vocals from Kip Berman about [.Read More..
