Even if you didn’t buy any vinyl on Record Store Day this past weekend, you must be thankful for all the releases that came out of that special day. Icelandic singer songwriter Ásgeir also released a magical new single for RSD 2014, and as always, it’s a beautiful composition. Ásgeir’s vocals are as angelic and weightless as ever on Here It Comes, and his shadowy, at times Radiohead like electronic-meets-classical production is astonishingly organic and fluid. But it’s no surprise to me, considering how much I’ve championed this amazing artist and his debut album In The Silence earlier this year. He’s huge back at home in Iceland, and he certainly deserves a lot more attention here in the US. I mean, seriously, just listen to this…. amazing.

The Pixies sure are busy with new music lately, and I ain’t complaining, not one itty bitty bit. Though I’d caught them on tour recently (and was THAT a treat!), I tuned in to their live webcast from Coachella weekend one the other day and greatly enjoyed watching them rock out. Over the weekend, I also purchased the special Record Store Day vinyl version of their very first album in 23 years, Indie Cindy, which comes out April 28. The RSD version of the LP comes with a surprise seven inch bonus with this fantastic tune, Women Of War, a noisy, grungy ode to female soldiers. I love you, Pixies!
