The One A B-Side on “Heart In Your Heartbreak,” released December 14th on Slumberland, this single features indie-poppers’ the Pains of Being Pure At Hearts signature sparkling, jingly pop. It’s a quick 4 minute track that reminds me very much of the Cure. Buy the single on itunes.

Comin’ Back Home 90 year old blues legend T-Model Ford will be releasing a new LP entitled Taledragger January 11th on Alive Records. The single “Comin’ Back Home,” is as gritty and bluesy as it comes. A delta blues track that beckons a few listens, sounds like it could have been lifted straight from Green Onions. This track oozes cool and will have you in hypnotic state after a few listens. Recorded during a US tour this year, the new studio album will be available through Alive Records on color vinyl (limited to 900 copies), 180 gram vinyl (limited to 100…
Not Enough “Not Enough” is the first single from J Mascis’s forthcoming album ‘Several Shades Of Why.’ Best known as the songwriter for Dinosaur Jr., Mascis is releasing this acoustic collection on Subpop and will be available March 15. Mascis’ trademark raspy, dry voice is all over this, and brings the 90’s nostalgia back to me. I eagerly await the entire album.
Holiday Face Dent May does it again with his Christmas track, “Holiday Face.” Its got a similar feel to his other tracks, a smooth electronic feeling christmas track, that you’ll be humming along to. More Dent May

Bad Books, the Andy Hull & Kevin Devine project were recorded playing their fantastic song ‘Baby Shoes’ at CMJ earlier this fall. Their self-titled album was released in October and it is just fantastic. They’ve been offering it up for $5 for a while now, and is well worth twice that. Buy Bad Books
Come Correck The do it yourself album does not come easy to many. Especially if you are a one man show. Multi-instrumentalist, Kurt von Stetten is such an artist. Playing every instrument on every song, he embodies a complete musician. His latest effort, Pyramid, is one of those albums that has a little bit of everything. Its got a down-tempo ballad in the aptly named ‘Love Song,’ its got a fun, quirky indie rock son in ‘1st Base.’ These songs are just plain fun to explore and its completely surprising that from what I’m told has limited music training, to…
The Palace Guards Camper Van Beethoven frontman David Lowery just announced that he’d be releasing a solo project of his own. The album entitled, The Palace Guards, will be available everywhere February 1st, 2011 through 429 Records. Being released as a solo project, gave Lowery creative freedom without being shackled stylistically by his other projects (Beethoven, Cracker) and that shines through on this eponymously named track. I look forward to hearing the album as a complete piece as this only whets my appetite for more. More David Lowery http://davidlowerymusic.com
