JD SAMSON & MEN - "MAKE HIM PAY"
This song is from their NEXT EP which came out in February and they have already announced the release of their next EP (haha) which will be titled TIME and was produced by CHAINS (Alex Saurez of Cobra Starship); out May 8 on MEN Make Music.
GRIMES - "OBLIVION"
I don't even want to say how many times I've listened to this record since I saw Claire Boucher perform at the Drunken Unicorn a little over a month ago. Spaced out loops and vocoder usage are her game and it works oh so well.
ACTIVE CHILD - "PLAYING HOUSE (FEAT. HOW TO DRESS WELL)
Creepily sexy video from choir-boy-turned-indie-musician, Pat Grossi. I was taken aback by the performance I was lucky enough to catch when Active Child was touring with M83 last fall and am very much looking forward to hearing that beautiful harp plucked on stage again May 7 at The Earl. More to come on this.
TOTALLY ENORMOUS EXTINCT DINOSAURS - "TAPES & MONEY"
Every now and then I come across a gem that reminds me why I started a blog and asked a bunch of publicists to put me on their mailing lists. TEED is one of those. Debut record, Trouble comes out June 12 on Casablanca Records. Mark the date to throw this one under the needle and start a dance party in your living room.
FIXERS - "CRYSTALS"
Trippy video. Great song. Some good ol' poppy indie rock.
