LISTEN UP: A Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever



  • Big ups to Rolling Stone for posting this amazing Arcade Fire cover of New Order’s “Age of Consent”.
  • In a sheerly genius move, some band called Sprites wrote a clever song called “I Started a Blog” that every blog in the world will now post about. I think that’s what they call “meta” – hear it for yourself over at Catbirdseat.
  • Milk Milk Lemonade spills the new track from Brazilian Girls. Kinda froggy, but still pretty awesome.
  • Our lovely friend over at You Ain’t No Picasso has a lovely new tune from The Lovely Sparrows, which is just lovely.
  • Swan Lake is the indie rock version of Damn Yankees, a supergroup featuring members of Wolf Parade, Destroyer, New Pornographers and Frog Eyes. Go to Obscure Sound and prepare to have your thick glasses blown off.
