The Week in Music 6/15 to 6/21

16 Jun

I’m going to attempt to make this a weekly feature of mp3s from touring artist that are coming through town. the key word is try. You may have noticed that we used to frequently post mp3s in the “Weekly Rundown”, but the decision was made to make this it’s own separate entity in hopes of better showcasing the artists work. Please if you enjoy the music provided make an effort to either go down to your local record shop, or try one of the online retailers (amzon, emusic, itunes) to find the albums for purchase.


Grizzly Bear- Two Weeks

The first single off  of Veckatimest let’s you know from the out go that this is album is quite different from Yellow House, what with the poppy keys serving as the commanding force through the song, and the breathier vocal harmonies serving as notice that things are going to be much lighter this time around.

Here We Go Magic- Only Pieces

This song sounds as if some drunken night the guys from Grizzley Bear, and Animal Collective decided to play around in the studio, and though I know that’s a lame way to describe it, I can’t shake the feeling that it’s the perfect way to sum it up.


Camera Obscura- My Maudlin Career

Fuzzy, atmospheric and generally beautiful Camera Obscura‘s music is pure 60’s sunshine pop, and this song perfectly captures everything that’s right about this band.


Sleep Whale- Josh Likes Me

I still haven’t gotten the full story on the name change, but it’s good to know the music hasn’t changed, just “evolved” into something intermily playful, yet thought provoking.

Balmorhea- Coahulia

I can’t pronounce this bands name to save my life, but their music is quickly winning me over, the building of the instrumentalization is grabbing, as is the pace at which the songs are set to, more then that the music evokes my love Texas.

Tiny Vipers- Dreamer

Slow, smokey, and a bit spooky this track makes me think of sitting in the dark and asking questions of the drink in front of me.


St. Vincent- Now, Now (live at the Ft. Worth MoMA)

I continue to argue that nothing will top this solo show Annie Clark put on a few years back, and this blistering take on one of her most well known tracks is one of the main reasons I hold the belief. Though I hope I get proven wrong.

Pattern is Movement- Crazy in Love (Daytrotter session live Beyonce cover)

I don’t feel the need to have to explain this.


Check back tomorrow for mp3s, and insight on the bands we have playing Friday night at Annex House.


Ear Pwr- Future Eyes

This music exist for one reason, and one reason only, to get you’re lame ass on the floor and dancing. If you hate this then you hate fun.
