Icky Blossoms - 90s Grunge Meets Grouplove

KCRW DJ Chris Muckley introduced me to the Icky Blossoms.  There's something sort of Breeders/Pixies meets Grouplove about them.  This song, "Perfect Vision," felt immediately nostalgic.  The video is a bit dark but WOW, it was probably a fun one to film!

The original is fantastic, but I was super stoked to find this remix by Them Jeans!  You can download it for FREE!  Is it just me or does free always sound better? 

Happy Monday my friends.  It's October.  In case you didn't know.

I've got roses..and some daisies..and dandelions!

I love Daughn Gibson.  There, I said it.  He might be my hero.

It's rare to come across a truly unique voice paired with an unmatched sound - we'll call it Post-Modern Truck Driver Indie Rock.  There's a hint of deconstructed Magnetic Fields-esque sound with a bit of Richard Swift quirky yet clean production value.

I love waking up to Gibson's song "Dandelions."  I feel like I'm in a western prepping for a stand-off where we shoot flower petals instead of bullets.

Hope you enjoy and take the time to check out the rest of his upcoming album All Hell from the White Denim label.  It's definitely making my "Best Of" list for 2012!  Where did this guy come from?  And when is he going to take his shirt off?  What?!  Who said that? 

Oh, and you can snag a free download of "In The Beginning" HERE

Enjoy friends.

Thank You Eau Claire, Wisconsin

For The Daredevil Christopher Wright.  Their song "I & Thou" has been in my earphones for a few weeks now.  I thought this live version deserved a place on the old bloggy boo.

Hope you enjoy them giving Fleet Foxes a run for their money as much as I do.

Can't Go Wrong When You're Gaye

Marvin that is.  And all other forms of gayness.  Hope you're enjoying this "sunny" season my friends.

Sorry I've been absent for so long.  I have no excuse.  Quarter life crisis?

Depeche Mode, RAC Style

Oh how I love RAC.  They've created a delightful remix of Depeche Mode's "Enjoy The Silence," which can only rightfully be described as a tribute to the band complete with reverbed trumpet goodness.
