JAMAICA + I Think I Like U 2

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Produced by Justice’s Xavier de Rosnay and Daft Punk sound Engineer Peter Franco, this song reminds me of both those bands but with an undeniable love of life.  It makes me want to shake my ass.  There I said it.

The Suzan + “Home”

If I told you that your new favorite song would come from an all-girl Japanese punk band would you believe me?  Probably not.  What if I told you that said song was produced by Bjorn Yttling, the Bjorn part of Peter Bjorn and John, who has done astounding work behind the boards for Lykki Li, The Shout Out Louds and his own band among others.  Interested yet?  No?  Come on, don’t make me beg.  Look, I’m asking you to take my word on this one.  Sometimes you just have to trust me on these things.

New Band Alert: Gamble House

After a few listens I’ve determined that Gamble House‘s self-titled record is the best Grizzly Bear record of the year.  Just kidding … sort of.    Their music swells and strains with the same grace and sophistication as those Brooklynites, but without any of the nagging hype.  Throw in harmonies like Fleet Foxes and production like Beach House and you’ve got yourself a late entry into the album of the year conversation.  Definitely keep an eye on these guys and if you’re in L.A., be sure to check them out during their residency at the Silverlake Lounge.

The Soft Pack + ‘Answer to Yourself’

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The Soft Pack (nee The Muslims) are one of those bands who don’t need explanation or a wild backstory involving convoluted genres and influences. Their music is simple and fun. End of story. Even better, their debut album is set to drop of Feb. 2. Enjoy the video and this MP3 via P4K.

Museum of Bellas Artes + Who Do You Love

Just when I needed something to help get me through the weekend along comes a great, great, great song like this one.  Although I don’t know a thing about this band, I hope there’s more where this came from.

MP3 at Gvs.B

The New Order/JAMC/M83-like remix is available here.  It’s equally jaw-dropping, trust me.

Kitsune Maison 8

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Is it a fashion house?  Is it a record label?  Is it just an awesome source of the coolest music and clothes?  Probably yes.  The new preview for the upcoming Kitsune Maison 8 is verrrry promising and the first two tracks have been banging on repeat for a while now.  We’re looking forward to hearing more — and honestly, it’s been too long since a band made a fun song about surfing (why should the Beach Boys and The Ramones be the only ones to get in on the waves?)  Also, be sure to check out the Kitsune iTunes app at their MySpace page.  Enjoy.

Vampire Weekend + Horchata

horchata

Horchata is the sweet, cinnamon-y rice drink that washes away the spiciest assault of carne asada and al pastor like a wave erases footprints from the sand.  So how does this make it the title of the first song from Vampire Weekend’s upcoming album, Contra?  I’m not sure.  I just know that hearing new material from these guys is like seeing an old friend again.
