Interpol | Lights

Interpol are back, and so is there Joy Division summoning with "Lights." Not quite the anthem the filled Antics or the bleakness that colored Turn On The Bright Lights... but, it's promising.

MP3: Interpol - Lights

Not hailing from Norman, OK or a tubby Boston alcoholic, no... neither of these things. Norman hail from the great Northwest where there are forests and rain and rain... and rain. But, their blend of alt-ish country and folk-pop are catchy and upbeat.

Sure, the vocal sound of Eric Nordby rides a razor thin line between mimicry and outright similarity to Fleet Foxes Robin Peckhold. But, in a post-Fleet Foxes world it's to be expected. He even sounds a little bit like Matthew Gray of Matthew and The Arrogant Sea... only with out the holier-thou-hipster attitude.

MP3: Norman - No Clouds

Sundress | Two Tones

Sundress continue to defy my expectations. Maybe it's the second name change... but, probably not. They continue to sound like absolutely nothing coming out of the North Texas, Golden Triangle of Music.

Their music shares more with gazer of shoes across the see than they do anyone in the region. At this point they are bordering on being the y'all version of The Coral or The Delays out of the UK and the new songs from their upcoming debut prove it--gently, reverb soaked guitar screeches matched with warm vocals.

Oh, and I should probably explain this too... Sundress was This Old House, but had to change their name so they chose Odyssey and for now they've settled on Sundress.

Holy Ghost! | LCD Soundsystem | Coming To The D

It's amazing it's taken this long for Dallas to bring our favorite Brooklyn disco-redux-hipsters to town, but, alas the boys over at the Palladium have done it. Holy Ghost! are coming to town with label mates LCD Soundsystem. They've even remixed LCDSS to boot!

June 9 LCD Soundsystem w/Holy Ghost! @ The Palladium Ballroom

Under The Cover | Girl In A Coma "Transmission"

Not as blah as Ian Curtis would have liked, but, it give the version a bit of a kick.

Gone Too Soon...

Over at DC9 this afternoon they posted what a very shocking story, and a very sad one. One of our favoritest bands, 100 Damned Guns, has broken up.

Beck | Devil Inside

Since this is the first record of Mr. Beck's record club I actually know or give a "rip" about, I found this particular video pretty interesting. Beck and friends take on INXS' "Devil Inside."

Sarah Jaffe Premier | Watch Me Fall Apart

We're pretty excited to exclusively premier a track from Sarah Jaffe's new album Suburban Nature. We're pretty big fans of hers and we absolutely love this track. Sure, there are more than a few really good songs Jaffe's debut LP, but, this song that comes next-to-last on the track listing is probably the best song on her album. It's one that could actually become a big hit if it found it's way to the radio.

All that being said, check out "Watch Me Fall Apart" below.

Survive | Lunar Eclipse

What do you get when you take the synths from dark House and mix them with broken beats? Sometimes a mess, but, not with "Lunar Eclipse." Survive have managed to blend the two sounds and mix Burial with dark house sounds that are astounding. Slowed down, not chill, but could soundtrack any storyline involving Patrick Bateman.

MP3: Survive - Lunar Eclipse

Ariel Pink | Round And Round

After seeing the Ariel Pink kicked around the blogosphere for a while I thought I'd finally give them a shot, and honestly, I shouldn't have waited so long. "Round And Round doesn't spin you around like a record baby. But, it does take you back to the early days of music videos... at least that's the picture I get when listening to it. It's easy Europop before Take That, Cathy Dennis and their kind took it over and introduced a 110 BPM 4/4 beats. Imagine Hall & Oates channeling Abba and Kraftwerk.

Mos Dub

After hitting it out of the park last year with Jaydiohead, then whiffing with Jaydiohead: Encore and Doublecheck Your Head, Max Tannone is back and hit a triple and is rounding the bag for home with Mos Dub.

Yeppers, Mr. Tannone has mashed up up Mos Def with dub Reggae and the effect come together like chocolate and peanut butter. There isn't a missed opportunity on the 10 tracks. If you're uninitiated with Mos, there is no better way to get to know him. If you know him, get to know him in a different way.

MP3: Mos Dub - Ms. Vampire Booty

Sarah Jaffe | Two Intangibles Can’t Be Had (Working for a Nuclear Free City Remix)

Sarah Jaffe is getting some fresh pub from a very unlikely source, Filter magazine. The electronica 'zine premiered the Working For A Nuclear Free City remix of "Two Intangibles Can't Be Had." The song isn't anything new, it's been featured on her Myspace page for quite while now. But, it's seeing the light of day thanks to he upcoming debut LP release.

Das Racist | Shut Up, Dude!

When SXSW was getting ready to jump off and Spinner was showcasing a lot of the artists participating the name Das Racist completely jumped off the screen at me. I mean, really... how could it not?

The NYC duo get on the free mixtape wagon and, well, give away a mixtape. If you like early Beasties and are a fan of non-sequitors in your everyday conversation then you will prolly like their jamz. That being said, download away here...
