Wilco - Impossible Germany (Live)

With limited internet connection for the summer while I work on my album with Nick, I'll be posting live videos and new music when I can. Sorry for slow updates. Regular posting will resume in late August.

Fishboy - Alyson Revere

Alyson Revere from Eric Edward Fishboy on Vimeo.

Fishboy's video for "Alyson Revere" had me smiling as soon as I hit play. I think it'll make you smile too. It's from their album Classic Creeps wich features stories about 10 different characters that are all connected.

Stray Kites - Misanthrope

Junior of Stray Kites sent me an email about his bands new singles and approaching album release. They've tagged themselves as "hipster garbage" among other things on bandcamp which made me laugh. I'll try my best to describe them: Lo-fi folk punk indie pop. Just give them a listen:

Vandaveer - Dig Down Deep

Here's a video from Vandaveer. It's nice to be hearing them with a fuller sound. I'm still a fan of the earlier stuff too though. Some of the best lyrics not getting the attention they deserve these days.

Maximum Ballon - Groove Me

I'm of the general philosophy that if you have a chill beat and Theophilus London you can't go wrong. The video is also pretty cool. Turns out Maximum Balloon is the solo project of David Sitek from TV on the Radio.

Little Dragon - Twice

My posting has slowed for two reasons: one, I have finals and two, I'm having trouble finding stuff I think I should share. I try to do quality over quantity. I'd rather give you one good band a week than five I don't really care about.

That being said, here's a great song. Another suggestion from Nick. It's a haunting tune with cool shadow puppets to go with it. None of Little Dragon's other songs seem to be like this one though.
