Ra Ra Riot + Vampire Weekend = Discovery

Members of esthetic twins Ra Ra Riot and Vampire Weekend have teamed up to form Discovery. A sort of M.Gaye by way of neon-futuristic Japan . Both these songs rock, just waiting for the whole EP to drop.

New Camera Obscura!!

Love the orchestral pop from Scotland's Camera Obscura... New album is My Maudlin Career. Great melodies, and perfect doses of cynicism and romance. Not to mention strings for days.. Try these..

Bang, Bang

Phil Spector found guilty of second degree murder.

My Swag, My Life

Sincerely Yours can do no wrong. Between the Tough Alliance, Air France and now JJ, the Swedish label is hitting on all fronts. The dreamy My Swag, My Life, not to be confused with My Life, My Swag, floats with you upwards, till you have to just turn around and take the trip again.
