Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore’s path toward the formation of is an inspiring tale.  Dreaming of a life on the sea, the Denver-ite lovers set their minds towards purchasing a sail boat and made it happen through years of saving.  The self taught sailors embarked on a 7 month journey up the North American coastline, a 2500-mile trek oozing with the kind of minimalistic experiences most of us dream about.  After returning home and eventually signing with Fat Possum Records, we’re sure to hear some interesting stuff from them for some time.

” is the newest single from the upcoming album and is most certainly a direct product of their unique trip.  It expresses how love-filled months at sea should feel, the lo-fi sound points out the beauty in simplicity, and reminds of that retro prom you’ve always imagined.   will be released January 18, 2011 on Fat Possum Records.  Order a copy HERE.

Midpoint Music Festival – Cincinnati, OH

No Comments 18 September 2010

I learned awhile back that I could save money buying in bulk (I’m pretty sure there’s still a washing machine sized jar of pickles somewhere in my garage).  Cincinnati’s Midpoint Music Fest continues this frugal way of life.  The annual indie celebration launched in 2002 and offers over 250 acts on 25 stages from September 23-25.  For $39 concert-goers get a Thursday through Saturday wristband for access to all of the venues in downtown Cincy and surrounding areas.  Not only are there countless local talents waiting for their big break (see Enlou, Pomegranates), there are a decent amount of higher profile names that quickly make up for the ticket price.  Acts of interest include , , , , , , , , and our fav up-and-comers .  It’s refreshing to see a fest with a wide range of talents at an affordable prices.

is coming up Sep 23-25 so make sure you get check out their website to get check out the schedule or get tickets.

Two Door Cinema Club

No Comments 01 September 2010

may be the catchiest upstart on the internet right now.  With their addictive guitar riffs, Ben Gibbard-esque vocals, and programmed beats swaying between afrobeat and dance party infused, this Northern Irish threesome have pricked the ears of thousands since the release of their EP only a year ago.  They caught our attention with the single “I Can Talk” at the end of last year just prior to their debut full length release .  Two Door–getting their name from the mispronunciation of the local Tudor Cinema by one of the members–has since opened for the likes of Phoenix and Foals.  Do these youngsters have what it takes to scale metaphorical wall from internet phenom to indie club mainstay?  You tell us.  Listen to the single “Something Good Can Work” and check them out during their first headlining US tour below:
