PT-Music surf-rock fave’s the Allah Las recorded a set for So Cal radio station KCRW. In it, they played some of hits (“Tell Me (What’s on Your Mind)”, “Catamaran”, “Long Journey”), but also debuted some new material. Check out the stream below:

Real Estate played Coachella. p4k filmed it. Check it out:
Absolutely in love with this Brooklyn group (or, more particularly, lead singer Molly Hamilton), and yes they WILL be making an appearance on my year-end Best Albums list. Check out these killer videos of them live in Copenhagen from the dudes at They Shoot Music (the same people who also brought you those dope Ganglians acoustic jams).
Lefse Records just posted this pair of acoustic gems from Ganglians, recorded live in Copenhagen. Kind of surreal seeing one of my favorite bands, touring half a world away, playing at a bar I used to go to when I was living in Denmark. #Reminiscing
Hands down, Real Estate is my favorite band of the past five years (and I seem to not be the only one). Ever since their first EP, Atlantic City Expressway, graced my ears I’ve become an insta-fan. Their new record, entitled Days, which has garnered quite the attention as of late, features the track “It’s Real” which is probably my favorite Real Estate track they have ever recorded. The band first performed this song live in Japan about a year ago, and since then I’ve compiled quite the collection of mp3s/videos of this track performed live. You can check out my favorites below:
I have deliberately not bought the LP yet because I knew the band was going to swing by Salt Lake City in early November (today, in fact) and I wanted to make sure that they got the maximum percentage from my buying the album. Also, I haven’t listened to any other songs that have been released from Days because, frankly, I don’t want to be disappointed. When you record something as great as “It’s Real,” I can only see it going down hill from there — but who knows, hopefully I’m wrong!
If someone asked me what are my three favorite micro-genres of music that I enjoy most at the moment it would be beat-laden electronica, “witch house” (in quotes), and girl-driven garage rock. Adding another hyperlink to the latter is Oaklander/LA-uh-er and recent Art Fag Recordings signee Colleen Green.
Admittedly, I don’t know much about her biography (and it seems like I’m not the only one), however, for all those that have been jaded by the recent transformations of one Bethany Cosentino will find a home with Green’s don’t-give-a-fuck songs. After blazing through what she has posted on her bandcamp — nine tracks, mostly covers — it makes me excited to hear what she has in store for her six-track Art Fag EP. After scouring the internet for mp3s from the new release, I could only dig up an acoustic version of “Cujo” Green did for Washington State University’s KZUU radio back in March, which you can hear below, and a link to what sounds like the vinyl ready version of the same track over at blahblahblahscience. Enjoy!
