Come to this show

The Feelies - Crazy Rhythms [1980]

So kids my age know all the mainstream hits of the late 70s and early 80s-- but did you ever wonder where the good shit was? Wonder no more!!

This band is so fucking awesome. They're kinda like the B-52s meets the youthful nerdy fun of Northport bands like Palmkite and For Serious This Time-- topped off these beautifully endless "rhythms" where the band jams on the same chord for like five minutes. It gets you so pumped. Perfect for exercising. Great great stuff here. Also Georgia Hubley and Ira Kaplan from Yo La Tengo met at a Feelies show!

enjoy- link valid until May 14th. =]

Allone - The Inevitable Effort [2012]

This hip hop record has been really inspiring for me lately. It's definitely not for everybody. But if you like Eyedea & Abilities... I'm certain you will absolutely love this record. It's uplifting through the self conscious struggle that I'm sure we all can relate to at this transient point in time. To me, it's about leaving home, being lost, and trying to keep your head up in the process.

Name your own price on bandcamp.

favorite tracks-     "Homesick is Where the Heart Is"       "I Get Down"

Mac Demarco - 2 [2012]

Hey! I feel like a lot of you friends will love this album. It's a ton of fun. Excellent guitar work and captures that summer groove. Kind of loosely reminds me of Real Estate but with a badass behind the mic.

 Actually catching this dude tonight in LA. Let me know what you think of him.
