New Music Crush: @califonemusic

This just in. Califone’s single “Stitches” from the new album of the same name which was just released by Dead Oceans. 

This tune is spare - mournful and joyful at the same time - like the happiness embedded in a hot summer’s day when it’s too warm to move. Part of the album was conceived in Texas where sultry immobility is an art form.

Buy the album!

iTunes // Amazon

Califone is touring. Maybe they’ll be near you.

New Music Crush: @sleepykitty​band

Just edgy enough to make it good. The single is “Speaking Politely.” The two-piece indie rock band, Sleepy Kitty, is currently on their 2013 summer tour. They are blogging about it at Digital Tour Bus.

Ducktails is the brainchild of Matt Mondanile, also of my fave band @realestateband. Wickedly talented dude.  Primarily a solo project at the start, he collaborated to release The Flower Lane under Domino Records in 2012.
