Justice – “Civilization”

If this doesn’t get you excited for the new Justice album, I don’t know what will.

Fleet Foxes – “Grow Ocean”

Fleet Foxes’ new album is quickly becoming my favorite music for the winter/spring transitional season here in New York. Their Millennial re-imagining of the Baby Boomer folk music aesthetic is so nostalgic yet manages to be new and original at the same time. Nothing captures it better than this delightful new gem of a video for the track ‘Grow Ocean’.

Tame Impala’s Trippy New Video – “Expectation”

Tame Impala does more than live up to our expectations with this awesome new video directed by Clemens Habicht.

Tame Impala – ‘Desire Be, Desire Go’

I was really excited to see Tame Impala at Bowery Ballroom yesterday and they did not disappoint. Despite the lead singer having lost his voice, they put on an incredible show. This video really doesn’t do it justice – I had to shoot it in vertical because there was someone blocking my view – but it gives you a taste. Check out their daytrotter session for free jammed-out tracks.

Stardeath + White Dwarfs – ‘The Birth’

This was the most epic opening act performance I’ve ever seen; I was completely floored by Stardeath + White Dwarfs last night at Bowery Ballroom. Fronted by the nephew of Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne, they descended from a far corner of space (aka Oklahoma City) to fulfill their destiny as prophets of the psych rock revival.

Dirty Gold – California Sunrise

It’s undeniably chilly here in Manhattan, so naturally I’m in the midst of compiling another beachy, Balearic bliss pop playlist as a means of escape. It helps me stay strong as I brave my cross town walk from home to work, which thanks to Daylight Savings Time is now in the dark. This track from Dirty Gold is making me wonder why I’m not on the West Coast…
