El Perro Del Mar :: “Hold Off The Dawn”


It seems almost ages ago since we first heard of the announcement of El Perro Del Mar’s forthcoming album, Pale Fire, in September of last year. It wasn’t until mid-August that we heard the first single titled “Walk On By,” and thankfully a second single has been released shortly before the new album hits next month.

While I do miss the more quirky, folk-pop sounds of her debut, I’ve come to except the more synth-laden aesthetic that she has seemingly embraced over the last couple albums; I imagine taking cues from fellow Swede, Lykke Li. Swedish divas, I tell you!

Check out the new single “Hold Off The Dawn” below, and keep your calender open for November 13th as Pale Fire is set to be released on that day.

[Video] La Sera :: “Real Boy”/”Drive On”

Katy Goodman’s solo project La Sera released a new album today  — which I’m currently listening to right now and enjoying — and has another music video that seems to kill two birds with one stone, as the video features both singles “Real Boy” and “Drive On”.  Clever usage of the songs as they segue into one another with two very different themes (one about a trapeze artist, and the other a b/w noir-ish romp through a city that ends with some plastic surgery mishap).

I don’t watch music videos that often, but I’m beginning to enjoy these creative takes on a medium that has honestly become stale over the years.  This along with the “choose your own adventure” type of interactive music video that Chairlift did with their single “Met Before” is beginning to make me a believer in videos again.

[Listen] Projectionists :: Self-Titled EP


It seems to only take one post to get myself into the groove of wanting to blog, so I figured while I’m at my computer I’d mention something else I’ve been excited about lately: Projectionists, the newest project of ex-Pipette member Rebecca Stephens (aka RiotBecki).  She now joins former Pipette member Rose Elinor Dougall in going forward with their own solo endeavors — both of which are quite good.

The band seems to embrace that 60’s girl pop sound that made The Pipettes so appealing, which is perfectly fine as far as I’m concerned.  The new self-titled EP came out in January, so definitely check it out!  Links to it on Spotify as well as the song “Falling Into You” can be found below.

[Listen] Sigur Rós :: “Ekki Múkk”


While Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi has kept himself busy with his solo work, the band has been sort of quiet since their last album in 2008.  But with the release of Inni last year (a DVD and double CD of the band’s live performances in London) and the announcement that the band would be hard at work on a new album and subsequent tour, it gave us fans reason enough to be patient.  That patience has paid off as we now have confirmation of a new album titled Valtari due out on May 28, with the first single titled “Ekki Múkk” being released earlier today.

At seven minutes, the song effortlessly floats along with a kind of minimalist beauty that we’ve come to expect from Sigur Rós over the years.  It’s interesting how much of a distinction can be made between the band’s music and what Jónsi has done with his solo material.  While both are uplifting in their on respective ways, there’s something about hearing a song from this band that really hits you to your core.  If music can encapsulate such things as beauty, emotion, and nostalgia — than Sigur Rós are at the forefront of bands that do it best.

[MP3] Alpine :: “Hands”

Just heard this song through Rawkblog’s excellent "Best of SXSW 2012" Spotify playlist, and have been playing it on repeat for the past hour or so.  If you’re curious, Alpine are a six-piece based in Melbourne, Australia and are set to release their debut album in March.  Incredibly addicting song and one that is sure to be a favorite as the months roll along.  Check out an MP3 below, as well as the weird interesting video that seems looks like outtakes from an American Apparel shoot or something.
