|I like the C and C music company...|
Here are some awesome things happening in the indieverse:
Cut Copy just released their new album, its the tits. Sounds from all over the place. Give it a listen on their free stream here!
I thought this was pretty cool. Datarock is coming out with new music, an EP and a LP to be exact. Here's the cool thing, they are packing those two awesome things with all their other albums (including remix albums and b-sides), and a plethora (thanks word of the day calendar!) of pics all on a custom USB toy.
I'm impressed with the marketing idea. Here is a free track off their new EP called Catcher in the Rye. [via SKOA]
TORO Y MOI ROUNDUP
Toro y Moi is all I've been reading about for the past week. It's unbelievable. You'd think that ol' Chazzy is the second coming. I can't blog everyday because i have a regular job that requires my actual attention, but there was no fucking way possible to keep up with his 'buzziness'. Here's a recap of everything I've compiled from their upcoming album "Underneath the Pine" over the last few days:
Got a video to go along with it [via We All Want Someone To Shout For]:
Then here at the end of January, we got the second single. Which I have "borrowed" (for the good of the people!) [via GvB]:
Lastly, he gave the album to Urban Outfitters (you read that right) to stream away. Go nuts. I was a huge fan of Causers of This and I'm already feeling this album. It comes out Feb 22nd. Go away winter...
Here are some other equally awesome gems:
Tobacco remixes the Go Team!, makes em better...
Javelin remixes this band I've not yet gotten into 'The Holidays', I have to assume this is also better. I do that, make things work for my benefit.
The Hood Internet remixed Arcade Fire and Blondie. Works perfect.
RCRD LBL is the best thing for catching new music for free that I am aware of. If you know of something else, I'd like to hear it. Here is Holy Ghost's new joint, which is rad/free...
I managed to make it to Making Time last week to see Le Femme and Small Black. I hadn't heard of Le Femme other than Dave P telling me they've got "futuristic sounds". What else is new? I did know Small Black though. They are a electronic outfit that apparently is/was Washed Out's backing band. Anywho, Phrequency shares some sweet photos of the show (I'm in there somewhere and I look extremely composed and sober) and posted their latest video which is from Stereogum:
