It’s so nice when you listen to something new which is genuinely brilliant. Discovered these guys, The Babies, through Brooklyn Vegan and listened to their new album Our House on a Hill, which you can stream in full at Spin. They’re made up of ex-Vivian Girls and Woods members plus bassist Brian Schleyer and the guitar on the track below, Get Lost, is insane.
Having a down day, or in need of some instrumental listening…these Canadian progressive-rock stalwarts are an excellent remedy.
Do Say Make Think
Of the same Canadian rock ilk as Godspeed, couldn’t not share.
M83 – Teen Angst
TUNE. Of the popular electronic variety.
RNDM – Walking Through New York
Another chance discovery, ‘Random’ is a new collaboration between Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament, singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur and drummer Richard Stuverud. I found this track via One Little Indian Records and believe it to be great.
