THE NEW GRIZZLY BEAR DROPPED THIS WEEK



hardy har har, not a real bear. THE BAND FROM BROOKLYN OBVS.



THAT is a good song. my god! I might buy this album today 'cos I feel like wasting money. and I have to buy socks anyway. I wish I could harmonize like Ed Droste and the rest of those well-dressed young men. I don't care. I wouldn't mind being able to sing like Stephin Merrit, either. I DON'T CARE.

"Vecktamist": you can download "Cheerleader" from their website here. http://grizzly-bear.net/music

"Yellow House" was SUCH a good album. it was like stepping into a sonic bath. I'm still kicking myself in the head for missing them when they opened for RADIOHEAD last year (I will always be a diehard Radiohead fan). And I much rather have seen them open for Miss Feist than Rogue Wave.

The new Phoenix also came out this week, which, as we've discussed before, is amazing. "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix" wha wha? with a title like that it has to be good.


NEW GOOD MUSIC
FIERCE

  1. The new Grizzly Bear is super amazing! I should have bought my tickets to see them while it was still not sold out, damn!

    I have a feeling this is going to be on everyone's year end "top 10 albums of 2009" list except for pitchfork. They'll be too cool to list it because.. they are too cool.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
