No, I wasn’t at SXSW this week. But I still have some tunes for you, so enjoy!
What have you been listening to? Let me know in the comments.
Admiral Fallow: “Squealing Pigs”
This Scottish six-piece opened for Frightened Rabbit on tour a few months ago. They’re cut from a similar mold, but Admiral Fallow is driven by a more acoustic sound (with woodwinds!) than their former tour mates. AF is playing Mercury Lounge tonight.
Royksopp: “The Girl and The Robot”
Tomorrow night, Norwegian electro kings Royksopp will be at Webster Hall. I can’t wait for this one – Royksopp is one band I didn’t think I’d ever have a chance to see in a live setting.
Cults: “Go Outside”
We had three days of fantastic sun and warmth in Washington while I was away from Brooklyn for the week. Here’s a reminder of what I did to celebrate them. Cults will be at Mercury Lounge on March 31.
Theophilus London: “Why Even Try” (Feat. Sara Quin)
On Wednesday, we got tickets to the Sweetlife Festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion in June. The bill is filled with some familiar names – The Strokes, Girl Talk, Cold War Kids – and some that I didn’t know. I checked out Theophilus London to find out what we’d be in for during the rest of the day.
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart: “Belong”
And lastly, on the pop front, here’s the title track off the upcoming album from The Pains. Interesting to hear the influence of producer Flood on this one – definitely brought in a heavier sound, and the Smashing Pumpkins resemblance is there for sure. This record is one of my must-listens for 2011.
