This is a great song. Really digging it.

No love for James Vincent McMorrow’s Post Tropical? It’s a fantastic album in my opinion. Later Bon Iver/James Blake territory, but also something fresh about it. Highly recommended.

Arctic Monkeys are the band with by far the most quality B-Sides, and also among the more generous bands in terms of sharing non-album tracks. They probably have another 2-3 albums worth of quality songs available.

So is the Arctic Monkey’s…

There’s a band called Lightning Bolt with an album called Pearl Jam? What a weird coincidence!

I like Alt-J, but they should really add some touring members. Their sound is so thin live. It really doesn’t do the songs any justice.

You guys actually posted a link to a live full band version of this song at SWSX this year. It sounds great both ways!

I really dig this. Get it? You get it. But seriously, this is good.

This is pretty awesome. It sounds like a post-rock take on The Social Network soundtrack.

I was just thinking that. The only difference is, I think this is better than Los Porcos. With Yuck, it seems like they are both continuing the carry the torch of the first albums sound for the most part, which I’m glad about because now it’s just more music I like. With WU LYF, I like Ellery’s song (though I still think it would be better as WU LYF), and I’m not totally digging Los Porcos, so I feel like they’ve watered both projects down.
