LCD Soundsystem - Disco Infiltrator

I have been obsessively listening to LCD Soundsystem’s first album. I liked it when it first came out, but I love it now. If you have ever liked LCDS but haven’t recently given their first album a good listen to, do it.

The Drums - Lets Go Surfing

Happy summer! This seems appropriate since I am currently obsessed with surfing. Also check out Girls for great summer tunes if you have not already.

This new single goes from great to amazing just after the 3 minute mark. Whoa, I love this.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - Otherside

Wow, I didn’t see this coming. Great rap on top of great samples. From two guys I haven’t heard of in Seattle? Sick. Check out the whole album.  Thanks Keith.

Phantogram - When I’m Small

Made something new and lovely with influences from electronica and hip hop.

Broken Bells - Vaporize

Well said. Ditto.

Vaporize - Broken Bells - Broken Bells

After living with the album for half a week, I’m sold.  James Mercer and Danger Mouse have put together a solid debut.  Those folks wanting to hear the old Shins will be disappointed.  This is a new direction, with just Mercer’s vocals sounding familiar.  But considered as a new entity without the comparison baggage, Broken Bells shine.

Local Natives - Airplanes

Yes, I suck at posting. But I swear I will get better. Honest!  I have ~10 albums I want to post from so just bug me if I forget again. ;)

Oh yeah and Local Natives rock! Check out the whole album. And buy tix to their show, at BotH soonish.

Alvin Band - Temple Pressure

Sounds like Animal Collective is an influence. Which is a good thing in my book.  Thank you music friends, it only took me 3 months to start catching up on year end recs.
