Free MP3 Download: Here We Go Magic – "Hands In The Sky"

Mar 9, 2011 12:05 PM by Staff

Here We Go Magic is the brainchild of veteran Brooklyn folkie Luke Temple and began as the name for a collection of songs Temple recorded on a laptop in his bedroom and released last year. Since then he kept the name, formed a five piece band and expanded the sound. Following up last summer’s impressive sophomore effort Pigeons, New York indie rockers Here We Go Magic will release The January EP this May and are set to perform at Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival.

SXSW Artist Spotlight: Yuck

Mar 8, 2011 2:00 PM by Staff

We think they sound like a well-rounded Nineties indie rock mixed tape.
Rolling Stone
Young British indie-rockers Yuck will be among the hundreds of acts to grace the stages at this year’s South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas (March 16-20, 2011). Though the average age of the group about 20 years old, it’s clear that they’ve been heavily influenced by the shoe-gazers of the early ’90s, who were big when the members of Yuck were probably just learning about the man on the sticker that they would one day identify with. The influence of Pavement, Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine is clear in the group’s sound, but Yuck brings their own energy and song-writing skills to the table. The result is a collection of fuzzy, catchy gems that would satisfy the biggest shoe-gaze craving.

Free MP3: Jordan Knight – "Let's Go Higher" Plus Interview

Mar 7, 2011 8:00 PM by Anngie

It’s hard to say whether Jordan Knight of New Kids On The Block would be glad to hear that his first single “Let’s Go Higher” from forthcoming album Unfinished sounds a bit like Lady Gaga or Chris Brown. He’d probably prefer Lady Gaga–and lucky for him, both are true.

Simian Mobile Disco

While bands with “disco” in their names are in right now (Shitdisco, Panic! at the Disco), more importantly, so is electro. Simian Mobile Disco prove less can be more with minimalist big beats. The group is known for both their original live material as well as their DJ sets. Never seen them? You’re in luck! We received an exclusive mix from the duo to give to you before they flock on over the West Coast for a few shows. Plus we’ll give you the deets on where to download other exclusive live recordings.

I want it to sound like we're Cuban or Cambodian kids in this crazy sing-along.
Jim James
My Morning Jacket heads back to its roots to cut sixth studio album Circuital. The band turned a local church’s gymnasium into a make shift studio, an upgrade from the Kentucky grain silo where they recorded their first three albums. Set-up in a circle, one of the reasons for the album title, they recorded the basic tracks live to a 24-track tape.
