The Kills released “Pale Blue Eyes” on the b-side of the single, “The Last Goodbye,” which was released on the 13th of February 2012. The track was originally released by the Velvet Underground in 1969. Enjoy.
I know what you’re thinking. Quirky, catchy indie rock? Really? Yeah, I thought it was extinct too… But of course, some bands still need to supply Apple with catchy commercial music. Enter Hospitality. A Brooklyn-based trio (of course they’re from Brooklyn).
Arrested Development fans should be familiar with the appearance of Alia Shawkat AKA Maeby Fünke. Besides the stereotypical image/background of the band, the track is actually pretty good… and damn catchy. Don’t be surprised to hear it in a commercial or indie flick soon.Read More
On March 6th, Andrew Bird will release an album titled Break it Yourself. It features “eyeoneye,” a track leaked on his SoundCloud earlier today. Judging from the sounds of the track, the album should be a little rockier than previous folkier albums—in fact, the newly released track is completely void of Bird’s signature string sections (violin, cello, etc.)Read More
It seems like The Shins are somewhat of an ancient relic nowadays… It’s been a good 5 years since the release of their last studio album Wincing the Night Away. Their latest single shows that the band seems to still have their shit together, unlike the plethora of reunited bands that seem to have lost their musical “it” factor. Port of Morrow represents the bands 4th studio album and is slated to release on March 20th. Judging from the single, it looks like it’s gonna be another great Shins release.
You can stream their latest single, titled “Simple Song” below. In the day that it’s been leaked, it’s already racked up over 120k views. Simply incredible.Read More
I had the pleasure of seeing Fitz & The Tantrums last night. Walked in in the middle of their opener’s set—an upcoming band from Ohio called Walk the Moon. I was pleasantly surprised by the quartet. They had that poppy indie-rock sound reminiscent of bands like The Kooks, Two Door Cinema Club, and The Strokes.Read More
