Jenny & Johnny are Having Fun Now

My Pet Snakes Scissor Runner Big Wave It’s hard to endorse a perfect duo such as Jenny Lewis & Jonathan Rice.  Especially when you’re in love with Jenny Lewis.  I’ve had a big crush on her, she’s an indie rock darling, she’s cute, she makes great music, and unfortunately she’s taken.  Sigh. Regardless of how I feel about her, its her music that is truly important here.  What appears on this album is a connection of two energies, that creates a lot of fun music.  At this point you’ve probably heard, Big Wave, and Scissor Runner.  Two solid singles, that were…

The Morning Benders – “All Day Day Light” from Jack Ferry on Vimeo. Big Echo, the Morning Benders’ newest album came out months ago, and its really great; it has some of the best moments on any album I’ve heard this year.  And now that they have re-highlighted a track that I really enjoyed, I’m forced to give Big Echo another listen. Check out the video for their track All Day Light, and if you haven’t already, get out there and buy Big Echo.

The Drums: Down By the Water video

The Drums new video for their track Down By the Water seems to be a video for a early 60’s based Happy Hands club.  The song has a slow chilled out echo vibe that’s good for listening on these last days of summer.  Check the video, and if you want grab the mp3 as well. Hear Down by the Water.

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…
