1. How to Fight Loneliness «

    Good read on Jeff Tweedy and his new solo project with his son.

  2. Time Shows Fools - Justin Townes Earle

    This is about as close as JTE gets to rockin’ out. Sounds like Jackson Browne to me.  

  3. Why the New Pornographers are talking about Captain & Tennille

    "We’re the indie rock band that’s not afraid to sound like something from the ’70s, like Captain & Tennille, or whatever you want to throw in there," Mr. Newman says. "If our only influence was what’s happening now, it wouldn’t be very much fun."

  4. Time After Time - GRMLN (orig. by Cyndi Lauper)

    Happy Cover Friday!

  5. Sophomore EP from alt folk band Del Water Gap.
    Produced by Del Water Gap in the East Village.

  6. On My Mind - Liam Bailey

    Another choice Soundcloud find.  Blues rock on a Sunday morning.

  7. Classic - The Knocks (feat. Powers)

    Perfect groove for a summer weekend.

  8. I Just Don’t Understand - Spoon (orig. by Ann-Margaret)

    Cover Friday pick is Spoon reviving this track from 1961.  (Check out the original here.)

  9. Knock Knock Knock

    Spoon

    Knock Knock Knock - Spoon - They Want My Soul

    Love the new Spoon release.  Really solid all the way through.

  10. Neverminders - In The Valley Below

    This track’s mix of synth and guitar is just what I needed for a Thursday morning.

    Strand of Oaks “JM” / Out Of Town Films

    Timothy Showalter and his band Strand of Oaks came to record a session on the brink of the release of his new album, HEAL. There was a particular energy in the air during the shoot, as if we all knew some good things were about to come for these folks. It was the calm before the storm.

    Showalter couldn’t have been nicer and more appreciative that we were taking the time out to film these songs. And to be honest, we were more than happy to collaborate with a fellow Philadelphian who happens to be creating some rad music. 

    We have several songs to share with you, the first being the epic “JM”.

    With this rainy weather, I’m tempted to stay in bed and plug in the earphones.

  13. I Like You Man - Bonsai

    Hard to resist this bouncy folk pop.

  14. How We Be - Sinkane

    I can’t get enough of this groovy bassline.
