Find Me On:
Wow, awesome. I had never listened to Angel Olsen before “Hi-Five” was released, and now I’m hooked. This song reminds me a lot of Sibylle Baier.
No Joanna Newsom either.
Actually, they lent their song “Sweet Talk, Sweet Talk” to Amazon for a Kindle commercial last year, too.
Uhh, you sort of forgot one of the mainstage acts: The Head and the Heart.
There is absolutely ZERO chance that they won’t sing that song. So, RIP…
I can’t even watch N*Sync for 10 seconds without laughing! It’s incredible that I ever took them and their “dancing” seriously. I mean, I was 13, but I don’t really think that’s an excuse!
I thought this would be when my millionth suggestion of The Head and the Heart would finally get noticed… But with them just signing to Sub Pop back in November and re-releasing their debut on Tuesday, I guess you’ll just count them as a 2011 discovery, right?
Come on! The Head and the Heart!
Pretty sure “The First Snowflake” came out TWO Christmases ago.
I was all prepared to buy a few songs (my MP3s are crap versions) until I saw they were selling for $1.29.
The show at the Croc was last night, and he also played two covers with Zooey: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSKUl0aypO0
Just an aside: What is it with all-caps band names relating to water? BOAT, YACHT, POND? I think I’m going to start a band named PUGET (as in Puget Sound) to follow the trend.
How did The Head and the Heart not make the cut?!
Too bad they canceled their set in Seattle, after leaving us waiting around for an hour and a half after Beach House’s set. “An illness in the band,” indeed…
What do you mean by Neko traded verses with Kathryn? Kathryn has always sung lead vocals on that song.
Anyway, it was a pretty great performance, and you could tell they were happy to be there!
You’re going to hate me for saying this, but the beginning of The Suburbs sounds like She & Him’s “I’m Gonna Make It Better.”
New songs are great, but I’m just glad that the unspoken sideburn battle between Colin and Ben Gibbard appears to be over. (It’s probably been over for a long time, I just hadn’t seen much photographic evidence of either musician until recently.)
The New Pornographers, definitely.
I sure hope she adds a Seattle date, and plays “Good Intentions Paving Company.”
I’ve been playing “Good Intentions Paving Company” on repeat, but I’m definitely loving “81″ and “Kingfisher” as well. Can’t wait to hear the rest of the album!
I don’t think any news can top this today. I’m really excited to hear this album, and super glad Neko found time to contribute.
Thanks for mentioning this! I had no idea!
The 88 have a new one, and it’s free on iTunes right now. (It’s not the best, but…better than nothing.)
I’ve also been listening to a bit of Be Still’s “Sounds Like Snow.”
I don’t understand this whole Animal Collective thing either.
