The Maccabees – “Love You Better”

The Maccabees – Love You Better

The Maccabees – No Kind Words

“Love You Better” is the solid first single off UK’s The Maccabee’s new sophomore release Wall Of Arms. “No Kind Words” was our early indicator, and “Love You Better” seals the deal. it’s always a great feeling to hear a new band and become genuinely excited hear the rest of the record.. sadly far and few between qualify nowadays. we’ll keep you posted…

Jason Lytle – “Yours Truly, The Commuter”

Jason Lytle – Yours Truly, The Commuter

Grandaddy’s front man goes solo. substance abuse, band breakups and record companies couldn’t hold Jason back from doing what all great musicians yearn for… yes moving to montana. “Yours Truly, The Commuter” proves yet again that sadness is an emotion that evokes some of the most inspiring art. “I may be limping, but I’m coming home”. brilliant lyrics and a great melody. grandaddy, please come home?

Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson – “Relator”

Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson – Relator

Pete Yorn & Scarlett Johansson Breakup. not that it’s true, because they were never together. it’s just the title of their duet album due September. damn it. feeling like a tmz gossip whores right now – so while we’re at it… how about this picture?

anyways, the duo’s first single “Relator” is a solid pop tune with a classy old fashioned rock ‘n’ roll swing to it. Pete Yorn pens yet another gem, and Scarlett’s sultry almost raspy alto adds the right tone. blahblah yeah she’s an actress who’s doing the music thing… but fuck it’s better than hearing Feist do another damn duet.

our vote, she sticks with lucky bastard pete, and stays away from tom waits and jeff buckley covers.. Ghost World = pizza party.

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..
