I didnt know that The Cool Kids had a date on their new album. Or that its dropping like, next week. LoL.
Swipe from the kids over at Potholes. Because they’re awesome and I’m lazy.

The Cool Kids are back promoting their July 12 release, When Fish Ride Bicycles. Mikey Rocks and Chuck Inglish look to come together on an 11 track, playground four square battle, chock-full of cherry bombs and Pharrell beats. For now the duo swirly the N.E.R.D.’s production, “Summer Jam”, featuring Star Trak soul-singer Maxine Ashley. It follows the summer track formula: catchy drum pattern, stabbing guitar and smooth e-piano. It’s a glass of icy lemonade at 100 degrees outside with Neptunes flavor. “Gas Station”, has a Southern a la Outkast, Killer Mike, and Dungeon Family feeling. The track helps itself by adding UGK’s Bun B to the mix. Both songs are easy listening, cool kid, summer anthems. Stay chill in the heat by listening to these tracks. [via]

Hit the skip to stream the tracks.

Enjoy.

Holly Miranda and Rachael Cantu Live at The Bootleg Theatre – 7.6.11. Link:

leave a comment »

If I haven’t previously spoken on the amazingness that is Rachael Cantu in all her glory… forgive me. But she’s basically one of the illest female indie acts to come out of Southern California lately. While I’m backed up with multiple concerts to go to, you might want to go check out Rachael with her friend Holly Miranda opening at the Bootleg. Definitely worth the measly $10 ticket. Swipe from LA Weekly:

Holly Miranda’s enchanting vocals float through a shiny sea of swirling synth tones and layers of shimmering atmospherics on her latest album, The Magician’s Private Library, which was produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek. The ethereal soundscapes often evoke the Cocteau Twins, but Miranda puts her own distinct stamp on such engrossing interludes as “Waves” and “Slow Burn Trea-son.” A track like “Joints” comes off like a Pink Floyd reverie, but it’s brightened by Miranda’s airy vocals, thoughtful lyrics and compel-lingly feminine mystique. The O.C. native Rachael Cantu has a more straightforward pop-folk style, but her songs are more intelligent than most waiflike singer-songwriters, and her spare version of Tom Waits’ “San Diego Serenade” is both intimate and haunting.

Check out her Facebook page for more music and info on the show tonight, and go have some fun.

You might actually rock is what this is

After making a somewhat decent album a few months back, Wilco immediately returns to the scene with this fresh, upbeat and kickass summer indie jam I just wasnt expecting out of them. I kinda needed this in my life; Music Nerdery need this kinda great indie shit from the established kids to remind me why I love rock in the first place. Supposedly to be released in 7in vinyl format… its like they know exactly what I’m into. With indie and Retro Influence and Wilco Awesome all over it… “I Might” is my indie rock jam until something different comes along. Thanks, Nicholas!

Download and enjoy.

Happy 4th and alladat.

Radiohead: Staircase – Under The Stairs. Amazing Live Footage.

leave a comment »

I’m mad this has been out for a minute, and I’m just now finding it. I’m even more mad that one of you didnt tell me all of this live musical awesome was going on. Taken from their “King Of Limbs” project and featuring several amazing musicians whose names escape me right now,  this live version of “Staircase” basically shows you why Radiohead is more talented than your current top 10 favorite artists put together, frankly. The older they get… the more musically powerful they become. AWESOME.

Welp, I’ll be watching this for the rest of the night. Hit the Like button or Retweet this awesomeness.
You Enjoy.

Cage The Elephant: Around My Head – Music Video. Link:

leave a comment »

I love this fucking photo.

Yay! So if you know me, you know I have a history of loving Cage The Elephant deeply. And you should already know my thoughts on their last album, “Thank You Happy Birthday.” So anytime they drop anything new, I’m probably going to make a short blog and feature it here for you to see. Behold… the newest, weirdest video for the new single, “Around My Head.” Still more laid back than that first album, but good quality nonetheless.

Never hurts to throw in amazing brand new (to me) live footage that reminds me why I fell in love with this intense, wild, musically kickass band to begin with.

That first album is still the soundtrack of my life and travels from ’09 to ’10. LoL.
Enjoy.
