BANK HEIST "I Said Please" MP3 (Project of Teen Daze Guitarist)

Bank Heist

The live guitarist for Teen Daze also has a project and an album coming out tomorrow titled The Kingdom. There are hints of some of Teen Daze’s glorious ethereal compositions. But as demonstrated in the track “I Said Please” there’s much more live instrumentation going on. The live drums and bass makes the song sound organic. And once the chorus it begins to take you on a soulful rocket journey as the vocals cry “1 2 3 4 let’s go.” If you enjoy Teen Daze, you’ll enjoy what Matthew Joel aka Bank Heist has conjured up.

THE KILLS "Satellite" MP3 + TOUR DATES

The Kills

I used to travel around Florida going to see the punk rock group Discount. Alison Mosshart’s emotive vocals were always enchanting in the live setting. Once the band disbanded a few years later there was word of Alison Mosshart’s new band The Kills. The band was much more bluesy and soulful in comparison to Discount. But they still contained the same hard hitting edgy aesthetics. Their first album Keep On Your Mean Side was great. Now six years later their fourth album Blood Pressures coming out on Domino Records has been announced.

From the new album “Satellite” has been chosen as the first single.  It has that jagged edge that the band has always been known for. The song rumbles like a bar fight that you wouldn’t want to get yourself involved in. And if you don’t pay attention you just may get punched and staggered by it’s army marching like ending.

PETER BJORN AND JOHN "Dig A Little Deeper" MP3

Peter Bjorn And John

Alright, I was skimming over the wonderful blog Pretty Much Amazing. I saw that there was a second track from Peter Bjorn and John’s Gimme Some that has been “released.” Now, I wouldn’t agree with calling it “surf pop.” But there is a definite bigger jangle to the track compared to the rocking “Second Chance.” I would say it’s much more similar to what Vampire Weekend has been doing with their music. There’s a little bit of a Caribbean-tinge to it; especially in the breakdown of the outro. So in the end, I wouldn’t picture myself surfing to this track. But I can see it being a sunny beach day accompaniment.

LISSI DANCEFLOOR DISASTER "Glowing Hearts" OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO + STREAM

Lissi Dancefloor Disaster

From Uppsala, Sweden this “ekotronica art pop” duo has a new music video for their new single “Glowing Hearts.” The song itself is the usual electro dance affair. Dark haunting bass synths, beeping keyboards and emotive trashing female vocals. It’s got a groove and a beat. But the music video is a little different. It follows the day-to-day of the usual man. His life is gloomy. It’s as if his soul has almost been drawn out of his being suffering from the heartless cold that surrounds him. It’s eerie contrast to the song.
