Beach House "Irene" (Video)

So this video was put up back in February but I find myself going back to it almost two to three times a day. It's nothing short of amazing. The repetitive keyboard that echos through the entire song, but is most notable between the 3:20-4:30 marker, is beyond haunting. Once that guitar starts tearing through you like a fucking hack saw it's kind of hard not to start ripping all the shit off the walls and starting a bonfire in your living room.... I've listened to this version of the song four times today. So, needless to say I'm covered in war paint and my fire alarm has been blaring for the last 30 minutes. Listen with caution.

PS this is only one portion of a complete, beautifully executed, half hour performance, titled "Forever Still", that I highly suggest you watch here.

DIIV "Dust" (rough idea demo)

The fact that this song isn't even finished being written makes me pretty excited. This Jam has more hooks than a fucking tackle box. press play and get this little ditty stuck in your head. Then go Skateboarding.... It's international skateboarding day!

The Coathangers "Derek's Song" (Video)

Peep the new Coathangers video, shits pretty dope. The keys in this song are stellar. These skanks know how to party btw. This video should be labeled as a documentary. I've definitely come out of my bathroom to these chicks blowing lines in my living room after a bitchen' show at Soda Bar.... Party on Wayne.

Local Natives "You & I" (Video)

The New Local Natives video released today and it's one of the most incredible videos I've ever seen. It deals with how the world would react if the last dog on earth passed away and one dudes mission to find more puppies...... All in all it's fucking amazing. Oh yeah and it's a total plus that it's to one of my favorite songs off that new album. Grab some tissues lady's.

Pure X "Thousand year old child" (Video)

This is one of the best Pure X songs off that new album Crawling Up The Stairs. I'm stoked they made a video for it and I'm even more amped that they got a dewd who looks like an even older version of William H. Macy to play the lead. I love how it starts out with a straight up repetitive acoustic strum and then out of nowhere a hazy flood of distorted electric guitars pour in. This band is what "it" is all about. 

Unknown Mortal Orchestra "(Sittin' on) The dock of the bay" (Otis Redding Cover)

This is a pretty badass cover. U.M.O. did a pretty good job of being true to this untouchable classic groove. All the while still giving it their fuzzy warm instrumentation's. All in all it's about as good as you can get trying to cover one of the best songs ever written. Not gonna lie though, they should have replaced the whistles with a  loopy ass guitar solo. Ain't no one can whistle like my man Otis, hommie's untouchable to petty much everyone outside of Andrew Bird.

Alpine "Lovers 1"

I can't tear myself away from this track. I've made it pretty obvious in previous posts about how big of an obsession I have with the female voice being used solely as an instrument. The harmonies that scatter over these beautifully spastic guitar rhythms match perfectly with the bass line that creeps in from the back end of the intro. It's something to be noticed. Enjoy dewds.... Also, sorry I haven't been posting, I've been stuck on my own musical ventures but I will be making more time again to blast all the tunes I can get my hands on. Love Dom
