Dream Trip

I'm happy for Ernest Greene, aka Washed Out, as his success in the past few months has meant that all of us have had a chance to hear his music. His Life of Leisure EP is definetely tops for me, I only wish I would've paid more attention to it last year in order to give it props sooner. I've been on "Feel It All Around" for forever, and the rest of the EP is just as good. Here a song from the upcoming Kitsune Maison Compilation that we blogged about last Saturday.

So Hot Right Now

Probably (hopefully) blogged a million times already. Loved it when they were Poney Poney, like it as much now that they are Jamaica. The video is great, it gets me yearning for the days of The Strokes, when they hit everybody so hard, we had trouble getting up afterwards.

Some Things Never Fail

Kitsune Maison is coming out quite soon, just in time for the spring.

For Your Consideration

If you haven't listened to Neon Indian's Psychic Chasms, then you don't know what you are missing. Recently, Alan Palomo, the man behind Neon Indian, released a song on Mountain Dew's Green Label Sound (just as Chromeo and other folks have) and it's definitely the kind of stuff that will keep Neon Indian in my iPod for a long time.
