Love Goes to Buildings on Fire is wonderful so far.
Some nights you’ve just got to pretend Converge and red wine make sense together.
People are already calling Arcade Fire’s new album “epic,” but it’s worth remembering that most folks will experience it in un-epic ways. For example: Yesterday, a few hours after the band posted Reflektor to YouTube, I listened to the Canadian rock act’s fourth album from portable speakers as I folded laundry.
My surf / pop / rock band Girls of the SEC re-built / covered / re-played Katy Perry’s “The One That Got Away.” Drake shows up too.
Here’s a nice Grizzly Bear b-side from the initial Shields sessions, which were conducted in Marfa, TX. I think I get why “Will Calls” didn’t make the album, but it has nothing to do with the quality of the song. I’d be stoked if they made a whole record of this sort of broken jazz/folk/lounge/rock stuff. Droste’s voice, especially in the quieter parts, is scaling in such an intricate fashion. It’s a nice look for him.
One last push for friends and others passersby to grab the Girls of the SEC EP Lost Summer for $4 via Bandcamp. (Link to video for last song in profile. Vid points to Bandcamp.) Your support means so much. I’m already deep into the next collection of Girls’ songs, which will probably include vocals. Turns out I really enjoy writing pop music. Help me keep it up.
