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.

Neko sings on nearly half of this upcoming LP from The Dodos titled, No Color and has shared her favorite cut from the disc with her twitter followers.

Free "Tiny Spiders" From Post-Punk Outfit, The Soft Moon

Feb 28, 2011 9:11 PM by Anngie

Album Cover: Soft Moon (Captured Tracks)

Call it post-rock or just good ol’ shoegaze, albeit with a experimental flair. Either way, San Francisco’s The Soft Moon has one eye on the future while the other searches for new ways to zigzag between darkwave and EBM (electronic body music).

On their self-titled album, the band bring the melodrama of Bauhaus, the ache of Joy Division, and its very own wit and talent to richly dark depths. Moody, brooding, and visceral, it’s like discovering a long-lost recording.

Like My Morning Jacket? Try Chamberlin (Free Music)

Feb 23, 2011 2:30 PM by Anngie


Elements of My Morning Jacket‘s most frenetic moments merge with the National‘s melancholy yet anthemic choruses about love, and paranoia as well as contain hints of Band of Horses alt-country stylings. The result? It all collides into this brilliant synergy from one song to the next.
