Brill Bruisers is probably the album I’m most excited about this year. Neko Case, A.C. Newman, Dan Bejar, Kathryn Calder and friends are the band The New Pornographers – one of those bands that I want to tell everyone about. I don’t know what it is about Canadian musicians but I just dig em the most! The title track to this album sounds FLIPPING PHENOMENAL and I’m dying to hear more:
The album comes out in August!

“The Worst Is Yet To Come”
I cannot stop listening to this song today. I just keep hitting repeat. Pairing these bleak lyrics with such FUN, catchy, upbeat music makes this track perfect to me. It’s from Keb’ Mo’s new album Bluesamericana.
“I got a bad bad feeling…that the worst is yet to come”
Love love LOVING the latest Ray LaMontagne single…even more than the lead single (and title track) from his new album Supernova. Fittingly, “Drive-in Movies” has this beautiful throwback sound with a catchy hook and killer guitar riff:
“Rent I Pay”
Have you heard the new Spoon single? I’m psyched to hear that they’ll release a new album in August! This track is very Spoon-like, with fuzzy guitar riffs and a heavy beat…can’t wait to hear more!
“Higher and Higher” [featuring JJ Grey]
Have you heard this new Galactic single? Simply put – it kicks ass! So much raw energy in this track…check it out:
“One In A Million”
I’m loving this single from Welsh singer/songwriter Judith Owen. The melody takes a few unexpected turns and the lyrics are a nice reminder that we are not alone…
“My Silver Lining”
Swedish sisters First Aid Kit will release a new album, Stay Gold, in June and here’s the single:
