OFFICIAL VID: Syron – Here

January 31, 2013

Ack, running low on time again as always, and I need to rush off to see Local Natives live soon! I’ve raved about Syron many times before and shared the audio for this track, so let me just quickly share the brand spanking new video for the track. Mmmmmm. So good.

OFFICIAL VID: Yo La Tengo – I’ll Be Around

January 31, 2013

New Jersey indie rock band Yo La Tengo just released another full length album, this one titled Fade. The hushed, demure track I’ll Be Around got the video treatment and it’s a food themed rustic video. Oddly enough, if you need the receipes for Spicy Tortilla Soup or Spanish Tortilla, this is the video for you. It’s a novel idea and somehow, it works. Combining food and music? YES, PLEASE! Oh boy, I’m hungry.

Here’s a earnest, stark and simple acoustic track titled Safe Side from Gambles, aka Matthew Daniel Siskin (former guitarist for Levy). His is one of those voices and songwriting talents that shoots straight for the heart with raw emotion. Amazing alt-country/sad folk rock stuff. The guy wowed a ton of people with his debut single and video, Trust, which I’ll include below. Guess it wasn’t a fluke!

Brooklyn act Caveman’s new single In The City is a sweeping, mega dreamy, sunny tune off their April 2 self titled debut album off Fat Possum. It’s relaxing, beautiful, and soothing. There’s an M83’ness to the dreamy quality and a cushiony-y esoteric atmosphere to the great track.

OFFICIAL VID: Little Daylight – Overdose

Overdose is some wonderful, cheerful, upbeat pop from new Brooklyn bliss pop act Little Daylight. They’ve offered up some great remixes of other synthpop tracks by the likes of Passion Pit and Penguin Prison, but with this single, they’ve proven they’ve got the goods to make a mark with their own original music. There’s some Swedish electropop flavor to their sound not unlike that of buzzing duo Icona Pop. The lead vocals resemble that of Emily Haines’ (of Metric) in the lower registry. The song makes me want to dance in my seat. I’m loving it. I’m looking forward to hearing more original tracks by Little Daylight. A quick scan shows there’s nothing else floating around yet.
