Anyway, check out this song from Dent May. I absolutely love it.
This is a seriously fantastic remix of Morning Benders’ “Cold War” by Wallpaper.
And then go and download it here. While you’re there check out the song “Go Grab a Stranger”. It’s awesome, of course.
If that isn’t enough for you to handle, the Morning Benders will be playing in Georgia next week, twice! First in Atlanta at Center Stage on Thursday, June 10 (Sold Out!) and then in Athens at the 40 Watt on Friday, June 11 (Tickets are still available, purchase over the phone at School Kids). Both shows are with Broken Bells.
Okay so, M.I.A. is suppose to have a new album out this summer. If this is a taste, I guarantee you its going to be AMAZING!
Check it out and listen:
New M.I.A. on Pitchfork.
I think it’s awesome and I’m sure you will as well.
Alright, so I love Rancid. I really love Rancid. And I really love Vampire Weekend. When the two are put together, it just makes it that much better. I’m not too sure how I didn’t know about this until about 20 minutes ago, but nonetheless here it is. Vampire Weekend doing a fantastic cover of one or my favorite Rancid songs, ‘Ruby Soho’.

You can get a link to the download from Abeano music blog.
But wait, there’s more! Vampire Weekend has also released a music video for “Giving Up The Gun”. The video is directed by The Malloys and features cameos from Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers, Jake Gyllenhaal, Lil’ Jon and RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan.
I can’t believe I am just now posting something about this. Anyway, Sasquatch Festival in Washington state is going to be so awesome. I want to go so bad, but I live on the other side of the country and I’m broke. If you have the means or live in or near Quincy, WA, you need to go. And then report back on how freaking awesome it was.

I think this is great. Everyone’s favorite French and oh so cute band Phoenix has covered Bob Dylan’s “Sad Eyed Lady of The Lowlands”. I must say, it’s pretty incredible. If you haven’t heard, you need to and if you haven’t downloaded for free, YES FREE, you need to. Now.
