Good, old, rock’n’roll with some breezy vocals that don’t take themselves too seriously. I love the new album from The War on Drugs on the Secretly Canadian label. Do yourself a favor and revel in the ease of some guitars playing together to remind yourself that the universe is much bigger than you are.

Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles have been on repeat this week. Their 2013 LP Heat is a fun, original mix of garage rock and romantic pop, just how I like it.
I am obsessed with this chill cover of Jay Reatard’s Nightmares. Perfect for a lazy afternoon in August. Covers released this month have been on point from several bands. Check out an old UW-Madison friends’ band On An On and their new covers of Bjork and Cut Copy.
It’s a Strange Boys kind of day today. Cloudy summer days call for humid, growly garage rock music. Strange Boys have been around for awhile, but to less fanfare than other Austin bands who released albums around the same time.
Take a listen and relish in the summer sounds with me.
Devin came on the scene a year or two ago in Brooklyn. I saw him at Bowery Ballroom and new he’d be my go-to when I was in the mood for some leather jackets and pomade tunes.
He brings a lot of energy to his music and his shows. Definitely someone to keep on your playlist for the summer.
Was feeling nostalgic this morning walking around SoHo, which in the morning is all empty streets, steam from bakeries getting ready for the day and sunlight peaking through the original beatnik facades of lower Manhattan.
Started listening to some old-timey rock and roll immediately when I got to work to go along with my On the Waterfront viewing last night. Brando is it…
One of my favorite bands right now. Saintseneca out of Columbus, Ohio.
