Stubborn Heart - Do Tomorrow
oof. I’ll let this speak for itself.
EP out now on One Little Indian Records.
This band makes me really happy. So many whimsical jams they have. There sound is undoubtable lush and sway-worthy. I remember hearing this song live when they came through DC opening up for Cavemen, and thinking to myself, “Damn this is gonna be a hit”. I still think it will be.
These fine folks will be releasing an album Moon Tides at the end of August through Partisan Records [US] and Memphis Industries [UK]. To say I’m stoked for this album would be an understatement. You can pick up their S/T EP through one of my faves Father / Daughter Records.

They’ll also be selling cassette compilation containing rare and unreleased songs from each of the musicians involved, which will be sold for an additional $5 with admission, with proceeds going towards traveling expenses for all the out-of-towners.
ZOMG. Do not listen to this without headphones or a good set of speakers. If you do we’re not buds anymore and you should stop reading this blog.
I don’t think the chills that have entered my body since the first time I watched this will leave my body all day. All I want to do is sit in the middle of a field stare at a lone tree and hope to god the light hits the hill it sits on like I’ve always dreamed. I believe when we reach the new heaven and the new earth this is what music will sound like.
This video serves as a teaser for Julianna’s upcoming album ‘Nepenthe’ due out August 20th, 2013 thru Dead Oceans. Can you imagine being the producer/engineer of this album?
For the record, this is NOT a Fleetwood Mac tribute. However, it is something that brought me out of the disappoint that is the new Daft Punk album [Just so you know, I liked 2 songs on it, the rest was meh]. This seems to me to be a daydreamy solo project/creative outlet for Oliver Newton, drummer for Yndi Halda, to where the sound is very enervated, he just seems tired and worn out. But not in the worse way but more due to living life.
From what I can find out there is a proper release, Icescapads, due out in August on the Sonic Anhedonic Recording Company.
Can I just tell you how good this band is live? They killllllled at SXSW. Carmen has a great stage presents. Not to mention. Sax solo.
Give it more than 30 seconds. Yes, the intro is what it is, but make sure you’re listen to the drone filled track from the coast that is left [LA to be exact]. I get this sense he’s pretty hung up on a chick, but neither of them know it. Everything as slowen down to the point to where he can feel his hair grow. It seems to be about that epiphany in which the dude realizes he misses her.
You can downloadz this fur free at his bandcamp.
In the most respectful way I could say this, there is a lazy sound to this LA duo. Vocals a la a Mazzy Star and a tonal quality of a say a Beach House. Sleepy in the best way possible. Like those 30 minute cat naps where you wake up feeling amazing ready to take on whatever comes your way.
They were just recently signed by Stones Throw so their first LP should be coming out this summer. I will be picking it up as soon as it does.
I don’t have much to say at the moment, too much to do and too much going on. I will say, I love new things that sound old and the kaleidoscopic Elephant Stone satisfies that love.
