Stream Best Coast – Crazy For You

It’s yet another dreamy lo-fi beach / surf – pop act, but this one in particular shines in a crowded room.  Their music is a mix of california breezes, the beach boys and a near gospel like vocal styling.  This album is a definite recommendation. The album will be released July 27 on Mexican Summer. Best Coast Blog Myspace

These United States – Everything Touches Everything

Will it Ever The Secret Door Night And The Revolution I’m not sure how these guys slipped through the cracks with this album but Everything Touches Everything is one superb album.  These United States tackle that americana folk style that drips with pedal steel strings and great vocals. I think the stand out track on the album is Will it Ever, it features Jesse Elliot’s succinct lyrics, sweeping pedal steel sounds that will drag you around the room, and some real great energy moments that are near anthemic.  His vocals touch the range of high notes but stay within a…

Langhorne Slim Blows Your Mind

So Glad I’m Coming Home Back to the Wild Diamonds and Gold I was introduced to Langhorne Slim just before the release of his newest album Be Set Free in 2009.  I generally have an affinity towards folk music and Langhorne Slim is right at the top of my list.  He’s one of those singer/songwriters that writes some of the most gut wrenching songs you’ll hear.  He does it with a charisma and energy that almost seems unparalleled. I remember last.fm popped on Diamonds and Gold, and from the moment I heard that song, I knew I had to hear…

Devin Davis – Lonely People of the World Unite

Turtle and the Flightless Bird Iron Woman Deserted Eyeland Back in 2005, Devin Davis, a Chicago based American indie musician released this great album Lonely People of the World Unite that it seems no one knew about.  It’s a real shame for Devin Davis that this album wasn’t more successful.  Had he received more exposure, this album would have been a real break out for him.  But for the select few that stumble upon this record, by word-of-mouth or just plain luck, it’s a treat. I personally had not received the album until a few months ago, it quickly made its…

I revisit The Felice Brothers

Run Chicken Run (Yonder is the Clock) Penn Station (Yonder is the Clock) Frankies Gun! (The Felice Brothers) I had bought the Felice Brothers’ self titled album and was absolutely floored by their ability to recapture a turn of the century feel with their music.  It seems as though their style mixes many music styles; delta blues, folk and americana.  Their self titled album really got a lot of play out of me and then in 2009 they came out with a brand new album, I was straight to the store to purchase Yonder is the Clock.  After one or…
