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.
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.
Last year at the Pitchfork Music Festival fans experienced a reunited Pavement and (among other great sets) a ferocious performance from LCD Soundsystem. This year we can look forward to Fleet Foxes, TV on the Radio, Animal Collective, and the return of Dismemberment Plan, who are headlining the annual three-day festival in Chicago’s Union Park, July 15-17.
On My Morning Jacket‘s highly anticipated sixth studio album Circuital, the band turned a local church’s gymnasium, set-up in a circle, and recorded the basic tracks live to a 24-track tape. In celebration of the forthcoming full-length, the band will give away six weekly downloads beginning now! The first five downloads will be live songs from New York’s Terminal 5 the band recorded last October. On the sixth week, the band will offer up a brand new song from the album.
Like the soul of Madonna with the ego and heart of Lady Gaga, Gossip singer-gone-solo Beth Ditto‘s upcoming EP is a brew of vocal-house and modern soul laced with romanticized synths. Produced by UK dance duo and production pioneers Simian Mobile Disco, Ditto’s latest will make you go, “Ooooo-wee, that’s funky, let’s dance!”
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.

The song “Love and Leave” by Scattered Trees is 7th on Hype Machine right now, but telling you that won’t necessarily get you interested in listening. We get it — there’s a lot of music out there.
What if I told you they had a music video? Sure, there’s lots of those too. But what if I told you this video had Boba Fett on drums, sad stormtroopers and princesses getting rescued from cramped apartments?
Intrigued, right? Good. If you love Star Wars and you love good music, this video is a must see. It’s hilarious, and also a bit sad.
