New Bon Iver Released Today

Bon Iver, Bon Iver - via jagjaguwar

Bon Iver, Bon Iver - via jagjaguwar

Do yourself a favor today and go pick up the new Bon Iver album, Bon Iver - via Jagjaguwar. The album is a quick forty minutes in length, but it is fantastic. NPR has been streaming the new album for a few weeks now, and I absolutely love it. Some early standouts are Perth and the heartbreaker, Holocene. Compared to For Emma, it is optimistic - but not lacking Justin Vernon’s signature sensitivity. Go. Purchase. Support midwestern music.

Benoit Pioulard - Idyll

Fleet Foxes - Grown Ocean

Loudly. In headphones. <3

Maximum Balloon - Groove Me ft. Theophilus London

I was just over at ModCloth and they posted Groove Me on their blog - which made me watch the vid again and eventually dig through my Theophilus London collection. This track from Maximum Balloon (Dave Sitek/TV on the Radio) is aesthetically awesome. Don’t get me wrong - it is a jam in its own musical right - but I just love looking at it. And let’s not forget the video superstar: Mr. Theophilus London. I fell head-over-heels in love with Theo as soon as he started showing up all over theFADER. I am particurlarly in love with this Brooklyn tour for Nike and of course, Accept the New. It must be painful to be so cool; he had no choice though - his name is Theophilus.

Jonsi - Icicle Sleeves

Very much in love with this version of Jonsi’s Icicle Sleeves - from the Go Live DVD. I downloaded the album and dvd - they are divine.

Benoit Pioulard, “Lasted”

The latest vid for “Lasted” from one of my favorites, Benoit Pioulard, is so quiet and brooding. It is a bit sad, but Pioulard’s voice is always so rich and simple that it just ends up being pretty. (via the Fader)

Evolution of a Hipster

Lol. I think hipsters are adorable. This timeline of their modern bohemian progression is right on.

Twin Shadow - Castles in the Snow

Love. The more I listen to Twin Shadow’s music, the more I am in lust. The whole album, Forget, is fantastic.

Holly Miranda - Ex-Factor

It must be said that the original version of Ex Factor from Lauryn Hill cannot be outdone; however, Holly Miranda does a damn fine job trying. Check out the Black Cab Session.

And…”Waves” from Holly Miranda. Stunning.
