1. Q-Tip - Work It Out [Stint Remix]

     

  2. 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.

     

  3. 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.

     

  4. Never-before-seen Parks & Rec audition footage. Turns out Amy Poehler was not such a shoe-in for Leslie Knope’s character.

  5. Snoop Dogg poster by Kii Arens. Kii, you’ve done it again.

     

  6. Nate Duval’s Unknown Mortal Orchestra poster for Austin Psych Fest. Is it me or is this poster breathing?

     

  7. MGMT poster from November 2013 by Kii Arens. I love this.

     

  8. Rodrigo y Gabriela just killing it in their new video for the song “The Russian Messenger”.

  10. Ablum art created by Shepard Fairey for two singles he created with John Goff and Merritt Lear. They named the project NØISE. Not sure what it sounds like but the album art is lovely.

  11. The Black Keys have released another track called “Turn Blue” off their upcoming Danger Mouse produced album of the same name.

     

  12. Sufjan Stevens gets awkward in the new video for the Sisyphus song “Booty Call”.

     

  13. Wikipedia describes The Stepkids as Psychedelic Soul. I got the opportunity to watch the documentary Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton yesterday and have been inspired to do some digging into the legendary record label Stones Throw. I have started my search with The Stepkids who signed with Stones Throw in 2010. Check out this great video for their song “Legend in My Own Mind” from 2011.

     

  14. Been listening to a lot of Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside lately. They’ve been around for a handful of years starting up in Portland Oregon and have really captured a swinging 50s rockabilly sound. Apparently lead singer, Sallie Ford is the daughter of a famous puppeteer named Hobey Ford. How bout that?

     

  15. Tristan Eaton poster for Eddie Vedder at the Sydney Opera house last February.
