Music of 2013

Recommended Posts

^Great stuff! Very Van Etten :hehe:

That one and these two live tracks are all I can find at the moment, but I'm looking forward to hearing more. I think her album could be the 'Tramp' of 2013. :hehe:

So, what do we think of the new Strokes tune, then? I always feel like Albert and Nick are criminally underutilised on their more synth-driven stuff, but I've grown to like this one. Very odd but incredibly addictive as well. :)

Dirty Projectors doing a cover of Usher's Climax.

Was anyone else aware that Rostam and Ezra were both a part of Dirty Projectors (according to Wiki)? :o

^No :blink:

Speaking of them though, I just came back from the Big Day Out and drank in some tasty hour-long sets from Vampire Weekend, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Foals and Sleigh Bells :chicken:

First time seeing all of them too, which was a plus. Their new stuff all sounds great too, which bodes well for their upcoming albums.

Sleigh Bells were as awesome as they were loud (hint: they go up to eleven). I got front row too, which was kind of easy with the crowd thinned out by RHCP playing at the time. And my word, Alexis.. talk about your HAWLFs :woot::woot:

^Extremely cool! :thumbsup:

Vaguely remember reading that somewhere. I don't think they ever appeared on a Dirty Projectors recording, but they were both a part of the touring band at one point or another. Dave Longstreth was supposedly the one who got Ezra into African music. :hehe:

^I like the old-fashioned tape reel box look, especially the dirty old sticker at the bottom. :laugh: For some reason, it's giving me a very good feeling about the album. :hehe:

I really hope Tool will finally release a new album this year. 10.000 Days was released almost 7 years ago!!

And I read that Mastodon is working on new material. Hope they put out a new album this year.

They've still got a way to go if they want to equal Guns N Roses' record though. :laugh:

Here's the new one from Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Their debut album was one of my favourites way back in '11. :thumbsup:

Speaking of long-awaited music, the new My Bloody Valentine album is finally here! It appeared on their website (which promptly crashed) late last night, since then it's been uploaded to YouTube in it's entirety. :chicken:

Got another one by MØ to share too. I think I like this even more than 'Maiden'. :D

And I guess continuing with the theme of hotly anticipated albums, here's the cover of the new Vampire Weekend effort, coming May 6/7. :chicken:

I've been really liking what I've heard of Foals's new one so far too.

Of Monsters and Men did a fantastic cover of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Skeletons on the radio last Friday. Still hasn't shown up on Youtube yet, but you can see it here -> [clicky]

So excited so see them at Laneway this weekend too, especially since they initially weren't coming to this side of the country. + Bat For Lashes and Alt-J = another winning year for the festival :drool:

^I wasn't expecting that to work anywhere near as well as it did. Sounds great. :hehe:

Any Darwin Deez fans in the house? His new album is streaming here. :thumbsup:

^ Really like the sound of that band. Some place between Jimi Hendrix and the psychedelic era of The Beatles.

Interesting video :rofl:

New James Blake :Dinah:

(1:07 for song)

So I just got back from Laneway.

Bat For Lashes. Blew. Me. Away. :chicken:

She looked so beautiful, and sounded even better - I was so impressed with how flawless her voice was. Her opening of Lilies will stay with me for a long time post-19363-0-1446185200-03676_thumb.gif

Alt-J were incredible too - highly recommend catching them live when you get the chance.

Of Monsters & Men and Divine Fits were other highlights. Chet Faker and The Ruebens were pretty good too :)
