LISTEN UP: Formed a (Lovable) Band

|

Art Brut orig

  • There simply isn’t another band right now that rocks like Art Brut while maintaining an unpretentious, legitimately laugh-out-loud sense of humor. Except maybe Keane. (Idolator)
  • Yay! New Animal Collective album coming out this fall! Their last two cds have been pretty ridiculous, but I’m going to boldly predict that this entire new album will be comprised of three minute swing songs. Who wants to bet? (The Music Slut)
  • Merry Swankster delivers an appreciably nerdy exploration of the numbers 14 and 15 in music, complete with a track from one of my favorite bands, Wire. Do I smell another awesome Jim Carrey movie in the works?
  • The Pelican’s Perch honors the end of the schoolyear with an mp3 of ELO’s “Mr. Blue Sky,” a video of The Decemberists covering “Mr. Blue Sky,” and The Polyphonic Spree’s “Light to Follow,” which is super uplifting despite never being featured on a Volkswagen commercial then every movie trailer for the next four months.
  • My goodness, there are a lot of mp3s available at Sonorama.NET, from AC/DC to Johnny Cash, to Beck, to Daft Punk, to “The Clsah“, to Ween, to an audio recording of this sentence I have just written.
