Music Crush: @white_laces

White Laces’ new single, “Nothing Clicks” is rad. Can’t wait for the full album next month. Definitely on my “buy” list.

New Music Crush: @adryelle

Dream pop that tastes like modern Kate Bush. Appropriate for rainy days.

Buy the whole darn digital album

Music Crush: New @bearinheaven Album Released Today

New Bear In Heaven Album, Time Is Over One Day Old, is available today on Dead Oceans records. 

This single, “Time Between” is drums-forward, but retains the ethereal, insistent backdrop of synth and passion that defines their sound. Other tunes, like “They Dream” sound like rolling softly in freshly washed, warm sheets.

Score the new album:

I already got mine.

Music Crush: @littletybee

They’ve got 100K views, for this video, and you should add yours. A beautiful piece of music on its own, but also an impressive view of artists in action.

Also, since it’s Throwback Thursday, here is one of my favorite Little Tybee photos from a gig I photographed a couple of years ago in NYC.

New Music Crush: @TheRosebuds

Further proof that anything Justin Vernon (@bon_iver) touches, I love. Granted, he had good materials to work with (Ivan Howard and Kelly Crisp). Vernon produced and contributes to their new album, Sand+Silence. This lovely track is “In My Teeth” 

You can pre-order it (and you should): 


Music Crush: @majicalcloudz

I bought Majical Cloudz’ Impersonator album on vinyl last year and it is a bittersweet ear massage. This live clip of them performing “Turns Turns Turns” at The Studio at Webster Hall in NYC, part of Pitchfork’s Nightcap series, gives me chills.

Pitchfork’s got my number too - my loves Real Estate performed at the Chicago Nightcap, and Posse is playing the upcoming Seattle show.  

New Music Crush: 

Happy summer pop music. 

Buy it:

New Music Crush: @bigdatabigdata (maybe NSFW)

Wanna improve your mood? Subversive electronic music from Big Data is the answer. 

Buy it.

New Music Crush: Chihei Hatakeyama + Hakobune

Getting my hit of @beatoracle this morning. The last tune from @Chi_hatakeyama_ put me deep in the work zone. Beautiful ambient electronica that sounds like a water color painting. I’m envisioning the lazy Japanese countryside. Ah-mazing.

Music Crush: @timbreapp

I love the Timbre App for a thousand reasons. But the top 3 are:

3.  It helps me find bands playing in my area. Wherever I am, it adjusts to my location.  (now serving the UK! Not that i’m in the UK right now, but good to know.)

2. It is an amazing music discovery tool. If you don’t recognize a band playing at a venue you love, you can both listen to songs from that band AND buy tickets, seamlessly. No muss no fuss.

1. The interface is beautiful AND easy to use. I love love love it. It was born out of a hackathon, so I totally dig that fact as well.
