It must really be different in LA. Though they take their name from a Herman Wouk novel about a writer moving to New York, everything about Youngblood Hawke screams California: palm trees, skateboards, bleach. With ‘We Come Running,’ the new band is unapologetically itself. The result is what you might call disco Nickelback: a precisely produced, candy-like single, poised to build momentum for the Aug. 14 release of their debut album on Universal Republic.
The Dirty Projectors are gifted with one of the most unique sounds in expanse of indie-dom, an aesthetic that’s distilled in ‘Dance for You,’ the second track released from their upcoming sixth studio album ‘Swing Lo Magellan.’
With a bassline made with a gigantic musical fence (only in Australia!), Gotye‘s ‘Eyes Wide Open’ is arguably more tense than ‘Somebody That I Used To Know,’ though it lacks quite the same charge as the song that (has almost) made he and Kimbra stars. Nonetheless, ‘Eyes Wide Open’ is a sincere, exciting cut, not destined to conquer charts, but sure to make its home in more than a few hearts.
Remember that episode of ‘South Park’ where Stan and Kyle find a guy frozen in a cave? Remember how he after he thaws out he’s dumbfounded by 2003, so the boys house him in a 1996 habitat to preserve his sanity? From the sounds of ‘Not Your Kind of People,’ Shirley Manson and her Garbage gang must have been frozen in that same Colorado cave, because ‘Not Your Kind of People’ is stuck in ’96.
The Counting Crows’ new album is all covers — and the long-lasting alt-rock band’s giving away a sampler via BitTorrent. Grab the download bundle of ’Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did On Our Summer Vacation)’ here.
