Frightened Rabbit is a Scottish band that steadily continues to impress, and their latest release, Pedestrian Verse, is no exception. At its core, it is a somewhat pedestrian release, in that it represents common people’s issues, problems, and experiences.
Though it may be cruel to wish ill on those you admire, I sort of want Mark Oliver Everitt (E) to channel his tragedy to make another masterpiece. Like many aging musicians, he’s gotten more peaceful and cute on his recent endeavors.
Very excited to bring you what I think so far about Lana’s new release. Her newest addition to her musical arsenal, “Born To Die – Paradise Edition” is a force to be reckoned with. Now, now, now. Let me speak my peace for a second… I have been a fan of Lana’s since the beginning. [...]

If I had to describe this album quickly… English Black Keys with a bit more funk and soul. There you go.
I have to say that I am VERY impressed with Animal Collective’s new album, Centipede HZ. I have been a long time fan of their’s, so it is always nice to get new stuff from them.
Fantasmes – Redness Moon Lately, I have really been into psychedelic 70′s soundin bluesy rock… yea, that’s it. The likes of Tame Impala and The Black Keys… can’t miss for me. So I am absolutely in LOVE with this album. To me, it seems like a great combination of the two. It has the [...]
Kitten – Cut It Out EP When I saw that the RIYL for this album included Cat Power AND Yeah Yeah Yeahs… I was automatically intrigued. And after listening, I was hooked. This is Kitten’s debut EP, and they are surely killing it. Frontwoman Chloe Chaidez can definately hang with the likes of female [...]
Sunburn EP – Baio This new EP from Vampire Weekend’s bassist Chris Baio is very appropriately titled. I say so because this album would be perfect for a lazy day at the beach just baking in the sun all day.
