1. New tUnE-yArDs video for the song “Water Fountain”.

    "You might expect Pee Wee Herman to turn up in the video for tUnE-yArDs’ “Water Fountain,” which takes inspiration from children’s TV shows, jazzercise and 8-bit video games.” - NPR Music

    This is amazing and beautiful in so many ways. Artist Sofia Mattioli shows the relationship between silence and music in collaboration with 13 members of the Manchester Deaf Centre.

  6. Once again I find my head nodding to a band from Austin, TX. This time it’s a track called “What’s On Your Mind” from a band called Greyhounds. The track comes form their latest album called “Accumulator” which came out earlier this month. This two-man operation is made up of Texas native Andrew Trube and Anthony Farrell of Los Angeles who met in 1999 and released their first album together in 2000.

    When they’re not working on Greyhounds material, both fellas can be found moonlighting for JJ Grey and MOFRO, helping out emerging artists with studio production and writing music for other bands such as Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, and Ruthie Foster. Busy schedule.

    The best description I have read of the Greyhounds sound is “Hall and Oats meets ZZ TOP”. The song below is super groovy but the rest of the album is solid as well. Listen here on Spotify.

  11. I saw this two-person band open for Shakey Graves at a sold out show at the Hi-Dive in Denver last Thursday. The gentleman on guitar and vocals is Franklin Russell Hoier and the madam on percussion is Moselle Spiller. Together they are Crushed Out. Great sound.

     

  12. The War on Drugs’ latest album “Lost in the Dream” is pretty incredible. I have grown especially attached to the albums’ single, “Red Eyes”. See the music video above.

    Happy Friday.
