What better way to force you to listen to my favorite song than to post their recent video for “Don’t Move”. It features some post-Halloween creepiness and a mystical cube! Great hump day present.

Citizen – Young States

No Comments 31 October 2012

I went out to a local show that happened to feature ; the new album Young States is out, on iTunes, and is delicious. Get it if you don’t have it, listen to it here streaming if you want, but always, always, always, support what you like. I got the chance to ask them a few questions about their influences and upcoming shows.

is an interesting choice of a band name for the Minneapolis duo of Lizzie Brown and Danny Burke. Originally meaning “a behavior or style that spreads from person to person in a culture” (the non-internet version), the band do not come across as simply a style passed down. Though they do make electopop in the vein of contemporaries with the swagger of they infuse a trip hop approach allowing their music to grow and take its own path. This leaning can be heard heavily in the below “Fallen”. In addition to making music Danny Burke also made the impressive music video for the more straightforward “Young” above. The two tracks are from their recently released album Young which can be streamed and purchased along with the rest of their catalog HERE.

The Killers – “Runaways”

No Comments 11 July 2012

Those polarizing Las Vegasans (Vegasites?) are back with the first track from Battle Born due out this fall. No one was sure if we would even get a new Killers album but fortunately for us they’re back with “Runaways”. Landing equidistant between the sounds of ’06′s Sam’s Town and ’08′s Day & Age, the track is, of course, larger than humanly possible proving that maybe Flower’s and company are just dancers. With the gritty guitar chugging of the former, a dash of hooky synths via the latter, and overall bombasticness of, well The Killers, “Runaways” has pleased this fan.

Cat Power – “King Rides By”

and boxing may seem an odd pairing at first, but recent video collaboration between Chan Marshall’s music and Manny Pacquiao’s fists feels quite right.  In it Marshall takes another stab at her 1996 song “King Rides By” sprucing it up with reverb sprung guitars while Pacquiao’s stunning precision is displayed in slow motion.   The song is available for download with a monetary charitable donation of your choice HERE.  All proceeds go to Festival of Children Foundation and The Ali Forney Center.

Look forward to hearing the full EP The Secret Languages in a few months. Download both “Love Teeth” and “Melee” for the price of an email after the jump.
