Mixtape | September 2018

The great thing about being so late to releasing the August mixtape is that September is here, and the mixtape is ready to go. It goes without saying but I think this mixtape is really great, and I’m digging the heck out of the songs that are on it. Please do let me know if you’ve heard stuff that we missed this month.

Mixtape | April 2018

The month of April is over, and we’re finally getting out from under our winter form and into the allergy season. There was tons of new great music, and I slipped in a cover on this mixtape.

2013 | Kyle’s Top Records 5 – 1

5. Okkervil River – The Silver Gymnasium [youtube][/youtube] [S]o Will Sheff gave up the reins on this record after producing the last record, I Am Very Far, which had quite a bit of a different soundscape. What’s great about this album? It gets back to what these guys do so damn well. Make a record for songs, not just sounds, and as I’m a huge huge fan of 07’s The Stage Names, one could only guess that if they go back to that that it will sit very high on my list. I think Sheff is one of the best…


Top 50 Albums of 2011 45 thru 41

We all love lists, and we all love sarcasm.  Though, I think its important to reflect upon the last year of music, I’m going to do so through the use of a list.  It was a fantastic year full of awesome albums, and I’m going to count down a bunch of my favorites, and give you something to listen to while reading. 45.

Video | Okkervil River – Wake And Be Fine

The new video for Okkervil River’s Wake and Be Fine premiered today, the song is from the upcoming album “I Am Very Far” by Okkervil River, out May 10 on Jagjaguwar. The dark contrasty visuals complement the dark side of the song, and give you a really good opportunity to hear and read the lyrics to the song. Okkervil River has really stepped up the level on the music here, and its only that much more exciting to get to hear the rest of the album out in a few weeks.
