Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros’ Janglin (RAC Remix)

Janglin (RAC Remix) Home (RAC Remix) This came across my desk just in time, and it’s definitely one you should check out, before you head out for the weekend.  Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros’ performance at the Newport Folk Festival was one of my fondest memories of the weekend.  They are one of the most dynamic acts out there and their album Up From Below is definitely on the top of my list of best albums of the last year.

Chisel’s music has a haunting, folk-soul vocals and lyrics which are complemented by sounds of oboe, piano, bass violin, and percussion.  All together it creates a near gospel-like folk rock that will bring you back again and…

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin Lets it Sway…

Back in the Saddle Sink / Let it Sway Banned (by the Man) First off, I’ve listened to this album so much, it might be a little difficult for me to be unbiased.  But I guess that’s the point now isn’t it?  Either way, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin has just released their newest album, and it’s quickly become a go to for me. As usual, the songs are crafted nicely.  They have really found themselves to be great at making catchy indie/pop rock and on this album there’s a great blend of uplifting, anthemic songs (See Back in…
