Listen :: Places – Peaceful Conditions

Nico of Places sent me this track, “Peaceful Conditions,” on Friday. It’s a new jam their playing at their live shows, which by the way there’s one tomorrow at The Cottage in East Atlanta, but we can talk about that later. Right now, you should listen to this track.

The fuzzy vocals are consumed by the metallic beats being tossed around, while the guitar soars around in the background. And if even though I’m making it sound somewhat disconnected in my description, these sounds actually come together quite brilliantly. Listen for yourself below.

mp3 :: Peaceful Conditions – Places

Okay, so the show that’s happening on Saturday, October 8 (THAT’S TODAY!) will take place at The Cottage in East Atlanta. The address is 1300 Skyhaven Rd. Atlanta 30316. In addition to Places, you’ll get to spend the evening with three other insanely great acts:Gem ClubHoly Spirits, and Vocabulary. The show is at 8:30 pm, it’s $5 and I promise it’ll be worth every penny. Stop by, say hello and check out some really great music. I’ll see y’all there!

Listen :: Levek

I’m excited to announce that Levek aka David Levesque is releasing a 7″ on Father/Daughter Records. This self-titled 7″ is the first release for Levek and it’s coming at you on November 16. “Look on the Bright Side” is the A-side, “Slow” is the B-side and the record, limited to 400 is pressed on red vinyl. Red vinyl! And check this out, each vinyl order will include a digital download bundle with both songs from the 7″ and his previously unreleased song “Chief” as well as two brand spanking new tracks.

I could ramble on for days about how great Levek‘s sun soaked tunes are (seriously, great.), but I think you should take a listen and let this lovely tune warm you up. Then head on over and pre-order the 7″. Links and whatnot will appear below.

MP3: Look on the Bright Side

Pre-order it here.

Also, might I suggest you follow Father/Daughter Records on Twitter for all the latest and greatest updates. I understand that more amazingness is coming in about a month or so. I’m excited! Are you?

Best Coast :: Boyfriend

Lo-fi indie beach bums Beach Coast released the title track from the upcoming debut, Crazy For You. The track is entitled “Boyfriend” and you can listen to it here.

Then go over to Gorilla Vs. Bear and download it here.

Crazy For You will be available on July 27 on Mexican Summer. Get it.

And guess what Atlanta? Best Coast will be at the Drunken Unicorn on September 10.

Also, can we please talk about the amazing cover art? I can’t wait to own this on vinyl.

Band Crush :: Sunny Ali and The Kid

A couple of days ago Philly-based blogger Mark of  Yvynyl updated the Internet about this new EP available for download. Because I love discovering new music and because I trust Yvynyl, I clicked the link. What I found was Sunny Ali and The Kid and I can’t get enough. Seriously.
Sunny Ali and The Kid are a Philly-based kind of country, kind of punk and whole lot of awesome band. They recently released a digital EP called Try Harder, which you can download here. It’s available for free, but the band does accept donations, which I recommend you do because according to Mark they are great live. Monies = Tour. That’s what I’m talking about. Also, if it’s good (and it is pretty darn good) it’s worth buying.
Check out these tracks below, they are my favorites from the EP.

Try Harder

The Best For You

I’ve seriously had this EP on repeat for the past two days. I love it.

Check out Sunny Ali and The Kid all over the Internets.

TWO new songs from Arcade Fire!

So I am already freaking out about how awesome this record is going to be and they keep teasing us by releasing songs and videos of them performing these songs live. Well, follow this link to the Consequence of Sound and listen to the UK single, “We Use to Wait”, and the US single, “Ready to Start”. Amazing. Seriously.

And can we talk about how awesome the cover art is?!

Band Crush :: Burnt Ones

Thanks to the lovely people at Daytrotter, I have been listening to the same four songs on repeat for almost an hour. The Burnt Ones is the band I’m talking about. They’re from Indiana and they totally rock. They have full length LP entitled Black Teeth & Golden Tongues coming out on Roaring Colonel Records in August.

The Burnt Ones are Mark Tester on vocals and guitar; Amy Couch on drums; and Brian Allen on bass. They’re indie rock ‘n’ roll at its finest. Their songs will make you want to get up and move your body.

They are playing some dates on the east coast with Peter Wolf Crier. On June 22, they’ll be in Rock Island, IL and you know what that means? A Daytrotter session. We all know there ain’t no party like a Daytrotter party, well, I’ve never actually been to one, but I’ve listened to pretty much everything on their site. I also have the handy dandy iPhone app. Worth it.

If you don’t believe me when I say, “Burnt Ones are awesome”, go to their Myspace and then tell me you don’t listen to those four tracks over and over and over again. Go on now. Listen to some good music. By the way, they’re on Facebook. Like them because Wholly Roller said so.
