"Soft-spoken A.C. Newman doesn’t seem like a braggart. Yet he feels so strongly that his rock band, the New Pornographers, has just made its best work that a simple good review won’t do. “I haven’t seen any negative reviews,” Newman said. “But I find myself getting pissed off at reviews that I don’t think are positive enough.”"
Wealth of riches fuels rock band New Pornographers
Durutti Shores - Lemonade
Pink Rabbits - Strand of Oaks (orig. by The National)
Back to back Fridays of me posting a cover of this great National track. Enjoy.
Flake Music - Spanway Hits - When You Land Here, It’s Time to Return
Before James Mercer and the Shins were the Shins, they were Flake Music. They are re-releasing their 1997 album (again). Still good.
The New Pornographers - “War On The East Coast” (footage courtesy CBC, “First Play Live”)
Dig the Dan Bejar performance here, and how he just disappears at the end of this video.
She Wants - Sunset Sons
Tons of good stuff coming out of Vagrant Records lately.
"Who is U2 and why they weak ass music on my phone"
Who is U2?
Lots of great tweets there.

Happy Cover Friday. I hope everyone drinks their own pink rabbit today to celebrate the weekend.
Kidnap Me - CRUISR
Hold on to summer a little bit longer with this bouncy track.
New Name - Sinkane - Mean Love
This Brooklyn artist just released a new EP, and the whole thing is worth a listen. If Genesis had a doppleganger from Africa they might sound like this.
I dig the horns on this track.
