i have been trying to figure out who he sounds like and it finally it me, it's Jónsi from Sigur Rós.

it hit

That's not it. He sounds more like a sleepy Antony Hegarty.

i should have listened to it with the browser minimised.

I did that.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 20 March 2012 03:27 (eight years ago) link

Sounds like Kermit.

the new Lotus Plaza record (Deerhunter) sounds pretty good to me, esp. considering the fact that im not a Deerhunter fan

this Megaphonic Thrift album is better at Imperial Teen than the new Imperial Teen album.

new single by The School not bad, a bit less of a drag than the non-single tracks on their album. but the opening track is lifting part of the melody of something else and i'm struggling to put my finger on it

and she really needs to lose the fucking autotune

dieter bummer (electricsound), Wednesday, 28 March 2012 03:07 (eight years ago) link

music sounds like tramway, it's ok.

keythhtyek, Wednesday, 28 March 2012 04:10 (eight years ago) link

i like "give you the ghost" by polica a lot

TracerHandVEVO (Tracer Hand), Thursday, 29 March 2012 09:25 (eight years ago) link

the newest klaus & kinski record is really very nice. seems as if they don't get much credit for being kinda great. they churn out the records too.

keythhtyek, Friday, 30 March 2012 03:20 (eight years ago) link

listening to the compilation the rainyards put up on bandcamp. fantastic. in spite of having a friend that was obsessed with summershine once upon a time I was completely unaware of their goodness.

keythhtyek, Tuesday, 3 April 2012 02:12 (eight years ago) link

it is a thing of absolute beauty.

titanius sterlingsmith, fancyman of corwood (electricsound), Tuesday, 3 April 2012 02:21 (eight years ago) link

it is. it reminds of rick menck/paul chastain but better than that. papa topo's mini-lp is lovely as well, it is like the school record I was hoping for, in spanish of course.

keythhtyek, Tuesday, 3 April 2012 02:49 (eight years ago) link

ha. i really disliked oso panda but the follow up single was good, so i'm interested

titanius sterlingsmith, fancyman of corwood (electricsound), Tuesday, 3 April 2012 02:54 (eight years ago) link

when they buried oso panda in their next video it was cute. apparently they are like 19. they sound almost cosmopolitan now compared to oso panda. the milkyway influence.

Tomboyfriend, from Toronto, off of their new EP "King of the Animals"


Look at how funky he is! (jer.fairall), Friday, 6 April 2012 23:14 (eight years ago) link

'motoring' by toy is the best track of the year so far for me


scumulator (electricsound), Monday, 9 April 2012 22:45 (eight years ago) link

surprised more people haven't tried to emulate the newish Sonic Youth albums - great template for a young band.

skip, Tuesday, 10 April 2012 14:35 (eight years ago) link

'sleepyhead' off the new strawberry whiplash album is a cute little MBV rip

scumulator (electricsound), Wednesday, 11 April 2012 01:27 (eight years ago) link

Novella EP on italian beach babes like a better Slumber Party. lovely.

real 69 for my sham friends (electricsound), Thursday, 12 April 2012 05:26 (eight years ago) link

might not be the right thread

Bee OK, Thursday, 12 April 2012 06:22 (eight years ago) link

Love the newer Novella stuff. Pretty good live too. Although 'Don't Believe Ayn Rand' has a chorus that I can't help but mishear as 'cheese, sausage roll' (it's 'she's lost control).

Cragenham Craig (Craigo Boingo), Sunday, 15 April 2012 12:43 (eight years ago) link

that toy track is pretty good but gosh they are an awkward looking bunch. straight out of my junior high school talent show. be better without the intro.

keythhtyek, Sunday, 15 April 2012 22:56 (eight years ago) link

heard a new Allo Darlin' track on the radio yesterday. Sounded pretty good. Anyone heard the album?

stay in school if you want to kiw (Gukbe), Tuesday, 17 April 2012 20:39 (eight years ago) link

Pitchfork gushed over it. Usually their acceptable definition of indiepop is something turgid like summer hymns so that review is a surprise.

keythhtyek, Wednesday, 18 April 2012 00:43 (eight years ago) link

i disliked the opening single (though liked the b-side) and slumberland/fortuna pop have yet again conspired to ensure i can't get it off emusic so i don't think i'll be hearing it in a hurry

real 69 for my sham friends (electricsound), Wednesday, 18 April 2012 00:55 (eight years ago) link

i love them. i am sure i will love the album when i hear it.

keythhtyek, Wednesday, 18 April 2012 02:38 (eight years ago) link

going to go see them live in a week or so!

the girl from spirea x (f. hazel), Wednesday, 18 April 2012 03:29 (eight years ago) link

listening now, more substantial production, still utterly charming, smart and terrific. my one tax refund splurge.

keythhtyek, Wednesday, 18 April 2012 04:00 (eight years ago) link

ah i just worked out that school song 'never thought i'd see the day' rips the melody from 'let your freak flag fly' by the hummingbirds

real 69 for my sham friends (electricsound), Thursday, 19 April 2012 05:22 (eight years ago) link

ringo deathstarr pledge drive

62% of their goal in under 2 days. these guys have some pretty serious fans.

beer in heaven (electricsound), Friday, 20 April 2012 02:05 (eight years ago) link

Yeah, I wonder why...

emil.y, Friday, 20 April 2012 02:08 (eight years ago) link

i pledged, but only for the demo package. the 'make us cover a song of your choice' option went in like 15 minutes

beer in heaven (electricsound), Friday, 20 April 2012 02:11 (eight years ago) link

i would have made them do i kill everything i fuck fwiw

beer in heaven (electricsound), Friday, 20 April 2012 02:12 (eight years ago) link

Ha, good choice. Though I doubt the ilxor's cover of that could ever be bettered.

I'd have made them cover 'I'm a Terrible Vacuous Imbecile Who Uses My Body to Sell My Mediocre Records'. I'd have to write it first, obviously.

emil.y, Friday, 20 April 2012 02:24 (eight years ago) link

of this story i am thankfully unaware. dandy warhols related?

beer in heaven (electricsound), Friday, 20 April 2012 02:25 (eight years ago) link

ok now i know. seems.... pointless.

beer in heaven (electricsound), Friday, 20 April 2012 02:31 (eight years ago) link

Weird Dreams "Choreography" album is a total joy, tasty indiepop goodness

beer in heaven (electricsound), Friday, 20 April 2012 06:40 (eight years ago) link

i wonder if elizabeth darlin' has been listening to the hummingbirds a lot for this latest record

the sunno)))boys (electricsound), Tuesday, 24 April 2012 00:12 (eight years ago) link

have i already raved about rex or regina on this thread? their ep is utterly gorgeous

the sunno)))boys (electricsound), Tuesday, 24 April 2012 00:13 (eight years ago) link

is this thread title a lfo reference?

Sennen are about to realese their third album, produced by David M. Allen (Cure, Depeche Mode, Chameleons):

Bee OK, Tuesday, 24 April 2012 05:11 (eight years ago) link


UnderControl, Tuesday, 24 April 2012 05:48 (eight years ago) link

i'm really that Sennen song, i liked their last album but this sounds nothing like that. interested in hearing this album now.

Bee OK, Wednesday, 25 April 2012 03:51 (eight years ago) link

Cool song til the vocals come in

poxen, Wednesday, 25 April 2012 14:29 (eight years ago) link

Oberhofer "HEART" is pretty good, debut album this month.


Bee OK, Saturday, 28 April 2012 06:00 (eight years ago) link

This is very relevant to my interests

Straight From the Harp - Dancing Slow

Johnny Fever, Monday, 30 April 2012 06:43 (eight years ago) link

good song.

Bee OK, Tuesday, 1 May 2012 05:25 (eight years ago) link
