Telekinesis – “Coast of Carolina”

telekinesis2

Telekinesis – Coast of Carolina

psychokinesis may you live forever. seattle’s Michael Benjamin Lerner and team released their self titled debut Telekinesis! via Merge in April. the album produced/engineered by Chris Walla was recorded one track to tape per day. the world needs more drummer fronted bands, this one’s churned out one of our favorite tracks of the summer..

Justin Towns Earle-“Midnight At The Movies”

Justin Townes Earle – Midnight At The Movies

the more i listen the more i dig it. typically i hear ballads and instantly think lame. but this song, for a lack of better words, keeps it real. it’s honest and there’s nothing… lyric, vocal, instrumentation, arrangements, whatever that doesn’t feel genuine. Justin and chicago staple bloodshot records couldn’t be a better match..

Depeche Mode – In Sympathy

how many bands together for 30 years are still making relevant music?

the next official single off Depeche Mode’s 12th studio release Sounds of the Universe is “Peace”. although the mid-tempo “In Sympathy” is what really stands out..

You’re bright, you’re strong
You know your right from wrong
At least to some degree
You’re wise, you’re tough
You’ve heard their lies enough…

getgetget here..

been a fan of the video and their current single “Wrong”.. worth a gander if you haven’t yet

other depeche mode news… recently front man Dave Gahan was rushed to hospital on May 12 after suffering a severe bout of gastroenteritis. Tests revealed a low-grade malignant tumor in Dave’s bladder, which has since been removed. world tour resumes June 8th…
