Currently Obsessed with: Cold War Kids - Dear Miss Lonelyhearts
Yeeee-hoooo! Cold War Kids are back! Bam! Their latest album, Dear Miss Lonelyhearts is a ridiculously fun album to listen to. Yes, this record is less gritty than what you’d hear on Robbers & Cowards or Soho Sessions, but it shows growth in the bands production quality. Front man, Nathan Willet sounds a bit over polished than what you’d hear from him live on tracks such as, Bottled Affection, and Bitter Poem, but still delivers on pulling heartstrings with his beautiful voice. Overall, the album is grood (good…almost great). We recommend putting on your stomping shoes, turning up “Miracle Mile” and wiggling your body aimlessly for your first listen to Dear Miss Lonelyhearts.
Video of the Week: Cat Power “Manhattan”
Meee-ooow. Bleached and pixie-cut-clad, Cat Power is as dainty and rad as ever in her latest video for, “Manhattan.” Perusing her favorite spots around the island, Cat Power shows off her bond with one of the greatest places through this nostalgic adventure around town from subway cars, bars, and brownstone stoops.
Watch Out For: Gin Wigmore
With a rock-harshness like Amy Winehouse mixed with Sallie Ford, Gin Wigmore definitely has a sound all her own. Her voice isn’t changing as she evolves as an artist, which we prefer, but her music is definitely improving. We listened to “Black Sheep” off her latest album “Gravel & Wine Track By Track,” and were stoked on hearing what else she can do. Introduce yourself to her bad-ass-ness and keep an eye out (or an ear open) for her this year.
Freshies: The xx - Sunset (Jamie Jones Remix)
Jamie Jones upped the intensity behind Sunset with fast and muted bass for a trance-like intro giving The XX’s already ominous sound even more gloom. The remix picks up halfway through with increased energy created by added clap-infused tempos. This is not a remix for the light-hearted. Best listened to when processing a long day on a long drive.
