Here’s some new tunes for y’all to check out… Leave comments and let me know what you think. Enjoy!

Mp3s are below text

1) ART MUSEUMSS.h.o.p.p.i.n.g. I just caught wind of this SF duo and so far I’ve been really enjoying the Brit jangle pop that’s very similar to the beloved Television Personalities. The band has an album scheduled for release on Woodist (home of Real Estate) on February 16, they’ll also be playing at the Rickshaw in SF on March 14. I  heard that they’ll hopefully be playing at this year’s SXSW, so keep an eye out.

2) THE RADIO DEPT.Memory Loss It’s been 4 years since their last record and I must say, it’s been worth the wait. Their new album, Clinging To A Scheme due out in April this year on Labrador Records, is ruling my world. I’m very pleasantly surprised, fans old and new won’t be disappointed.

3) TAKEN BY TREESAnna One of the standout tracks from last year’s album East Of Eden. In case you aren’t too familiar, Taken By Trees is Victoria Bergsman from the Concretes‘ solo project. She’ll be touring starting February 13 with El Perro Del Mar, which is a pretty big deal since she hasn’t played the States in quite some time. For tour dates click here.

4) THE KNIFESeeds There’s been a lot of buzz circulating recently around this new Knife+Mt. Sims+Planningtorock collaboration “electro-opera” album entitled Tomorrow, In A Year, based on the Charles Darwin book The Origin Of Species. Seeds is one of the stand-out tracks from the album evoking more thudding dance beats and a little less opera (although it’s definitely present).

An oldie but a goodie…

5) SPIZZENERGIVirginia Plain I love this cover of the Roxy Music classic. It was featured as the B-side to Spizzenergi’s “Soldier Soldier” 7″ which was released on Rough Trade back in 1979.

New Tunes For A Rainy Wednesday!

Posted in New Music with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 20, 2010 by pauliepalooza

Howdy folks!

Here’s some new tuneage for y’all on a lovely rainy day… enjoy!

Uno: Four Tet “She Just Likes to Fight” (click on “LINK” to DL “LINK”) This smooth track is off of the upcoming new Four Tet album entitled There Is Love In You (available 1/25/10 on Domino). So far, from what I’ve heard of this new album, I’m really enjoying it’s atmospheric, chill sound. Make sure you catch him live, he’ll be on the road in February. For more info click HERE

Due: Sister Crayon “Souls Of Gold” (click on “LINK” to DL “LINK”) One of the more poppier tracks from this Sacramento quartet. I was lucky enough to catch them at the Echo in December on one of the Manimal Vinyl residency nights. I really enjoyed their set and their songs. If you’re a fan of Bat For Lashes, you will definitely love them (although you can’t really tell with this track). They’ll be performing with Tycho and other amazing electronic artists on January 30th at the Sacramento Electronic Music Festival. Also check out this more sultry, mellow track by Sister Crayon called “Here We Never Die” (click on “LINK” to DL “LINK”)

Tre: Memoryhouse “To The Light House (MillionYoung Remix)” (right click on “LINK” to DL “LINK”) I’m super keen on MillionYoung (as you probably can tell considering I devoted a whole post to the guy) and this MillionYoung remix of the Canadian duo’s “To The Light House” is super slick and definitely adds his flava to the song.

Quattro: Pantha du Prince “Stick To My Side (feat. Noah Lennox from Animal Collective)” (right click on “LINK” to DL “LINK”) I’m lucky to have come across the new Pantha du Prince album called Black Noise (available 2/8/10 on Rough Trade). This track is effin’ tight! So is the whole damn album actually. Check it!
