Even though they cancelled their Salt Lake City show, got to rep the band with the best.name.ever. Smooth sailing with this track:

Real Estate played Coachella. p4k filmed it. Check it out:
Between the Bon Iver song and my in-laws recently relocating to Perth, I have never had such an acute interest in Western Australia before! Mark from YVYNYL pointed me in the direction of another thread to my newly found regional interest by spotlighting the band perth (I assume they are taking the moniker of their hometown).
This Aussie quartet makes some chilled-out, slow-burning tunes that seem ripe for airplay in their coastal setting. Check out the ungoogle-able track “Original Food” (via: their bandcamp) as well as a video of them performing the song live for the first time:
J. Spaceman doing his best Jeff Tweedy impression on a new song called “Little Girl” — a cut from his upcoming LP Sweet Heart Sweet Light.
Man I really love this Tokyo dude to death! Jesse Ruins makes some of the chillest ambient, post-chillwave jams out there nowadays. Yesterday, I about ran though all of the archive.org-based videos people have been posting to youtube for a couple of months now (some official, most unofficial). Killer! Below are two of my favorites. You should probably head over to Captured Tracks and cop his new 12” EP.
Been a while since I did a jj post (like, two months, but still…) Here’s a quick rundown of different bits of news concerning my two favorite Swedes:
- According to this weird interview, jj is going to continue their Roman Numeral-ed series and release an EP, IV, later this spring and are working on their latest LP, V.
- If you don’t follow jj’s blog, you should because it’s fucking golden!
- You can watch jj perform an acoustic rendition of 2012′s Song of the Year “VI” as well as last year’s “Let’s Go” on some Swedish TV show right here.
- Somehow I missed a track that jj collaborated on last year, entitled “The End”, which you can stream below.
It’s been a while since I’ve looked into what the good folks over at Gold Robot Records had brewing (mostly because I’ve fallen off the hemisphere). Turns out, PT-Music fave Roman Ruins has a new LP, entitled Homebuilding, that’s slated to come out at the end of the month, and from what I’ve heard so far, it’s set to be quite the record! The opener, “Mighty Love,” recently got the video treatment from the same dude who did the bad ass vid for Monster Rally’s “Surf Eerie” last year. Chill song, great video — what more could you want?!
As if I need another Swedish musician to follow, out pops Molly Nilsson. Her songs are equally simple and beautiful, creating some dreamy synth-pop tunes that are sure to put you into orbit. All of the tracks below are from her new LP, History, but you can check out some of her earlier stuff from her label Dark Skies Association (founded by Nilsson herself).
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).
