“Anything in Return” by Toro Y Moi

“Anything in Return” by Toro Y Moi

Anything in Return, the third album by Toro Y Moi, is a collection of electropop songs built from an amalgam of diverse elements; house, R&B, and even funk come to mind when listening. The record seems clearly to be striving for an air of nostalgic sensuality, which it successfully borrows from the 80s. Its most […]

“Beta Love” by Ra Ra Riot

“Beta Love” by Ra Ra Riot

When it comes to the latest music releases, apart from recommendations by friends and trusted sources, the artwork of an album is so important in deciding what we take the time to hear. When looking at Ra Ra Riot’s three full-length LP’s, their album art has been actually incredibly well representative of what lies within […]

“Things I Should Let You Know” by Seth Glier

“Things I Should Let You Know” by Seth Glier

Seth Glier’s 2012 Grammy nomination came as a massive surprise.

“End of Daze” by Dum Dum Girls

“End of Daze” by Dum Dum Girls

With the Dum Dum Girls release of their fourth EP, End of Daze, the girls amp up their dream-pop sound with a little more dream and a little less pop. As a follow-up to 2011’s Only in Dreams, the EP samples a group of songs that were originally recorded for last year’s full length release […]

“Haunted Man” by Bat For Lashes

“Haunted Man” by Bat For Lashes

English singer-songwriter Natasha Khan, better known as Bat For Lashes, came in to prominence in 2009 with her sophomore album Two Suns. On that album, Khan created lush soundscapes and paired them against her elegantly haunting vocals to create a sound distinctly hers. After 3 years, Khan has followed up Two Suns with the highly […]

“Hands of Glory” by Andrew Bird

“Hands of Glory” by Andrew Bird

Self-proclaimed “singer, violinist, whistler,” Andrew Bird has come to be recognized as one of the more refined, yet accessible musicians in today’s popular indie rock scene. This classically trained artist’s instruments are not sopping wet with effects and reverb, his concerts don’t utilize gaudy light displays, and his poetic lyrics don’t make contemporary pop culture […]
