Posted By on Mon, Dec 13, 2010 at 1:25 PM

Chris Tolle.
  • Chris Tolle.

I'm not going to say the Christmas song Chris Tolle just put up on his Bandcamp is a classic, nor would I burden it with a comparison to that untouchable Wham! song, but it is jangly and catchy as shit, with hella pop harmonies. And it's free! Get some!

  • Monta, Saturday at RecordBar.
Last week, Dedric Moore of Monta sent over an advance of Fuoco Infernale, the band's latest album of downtempo dream-rock. It's good stuff -- look for a review here soon -- and it's out November 9 on Upstairs Recordings, a boutique label based in Vancouver.

In the meantime, Moore and Jeremiah James (who plays in local acts Mannequin Skywalker and Be/Non) have started up a monthly mini-EP release series that they're calling "Vortex of Sound."

The new Smashing Pumpkins song sounds like a Beatles song

Posted By on Tue, Sep 14, 2010 at 2:03 PM

Billy Corgan Smashing Pumpkins has a new song.
  • Billy Corgan Smashing Pumpkins has a new song.
Smashing Pumpkins are sweeping through town in a few weeks, when they headline the Buzz Beach Ball on Saturday, September 25. Tickets are still available. 

Today, the band released a free download of a new song. It's called "Spangled," and between the harpsichord and the melody it sounds like something the Beatles might have done circa 1967. (Teargarden by Kaleidyscope, which is the name of the evolving album "Spangled" will eventually appear on, also has a certain hippie-phase Beatles ring to it.)

Pick it up at Sweet Relief, a fund that raises money for musicians.

Stream the new White Flight track, 'Children of the Light'; beat by Ratatat

Lawrence-ish solo act White Flight, will be putting out his sophomore album, White Ark, sometime in the near future via Range Life

Back in May, White Flight released "Panther," the first single on the album, and today we bring you the second single, "Children of the Light," which you can stream right here. It's a big, fat, happy psych-folk jam, with a beat courtesy of Ratatat. It's experimental music in that he's piecing together a lot of disparate sounds and influences. But it's also got groove and melody. A hard trick to pull off.

Belle and Sebastian
  • Belle and Sebastian

​Beloved indie mainstays Belle and Sebastian are as warm, comfortable and classic as your favorite worn-in pair of sneakers. (That is, if your sneakers comforted you through breakups, depression and most of your young adulthood angst. Ahem.)

The band's new album, Belle And Sebastian Write About Love, the follow-up to 2006's The Life Pursuit, is due out later this year. (You can watch a live video of the band playing new tracks "I Want the World to Stop" and "I Didn't See It Coming" after the jump.) 

Today, you can download a song from Belle and Sebastian's new album: the simply-titled "Write About Love." The song will be available from the band's website for a limited time -- it'll be released officially on October 25. Click here to download "Write About Love."

Posted By on Tue, Aug 31, 2010 at 6:45 AM


​Kinetic Brooklyn girl-and-guy duo Matt and Kim rock the Granada in Lawrence on September 23. You won't be able to hear a full recording of the band's third record, Sidewalks, until it comes out on November 2, but here's the first single, "Cameras." Listen to it hereIt's rich with instrumentation, including horns and synths! (Thank the album's producer, Animal Collective's Ben Allen.) 

But let's talk about what everyone really thinks of when we mention Matt and Kim: Remember when the band got naked in Times Square, for its "Lessons Learned" video in 2009?

Ha Ha Tonka's new tour dates, free download

Posted By on Thu, Aug 12, 2010 at 6:31 AM

Ha Ha Tonka practices what they preach.
  • Ha Ha Tonka practices what they preach.

We like these guys -- they're from Missouri! Hoo-aaa. Ha Ha Tonka has recently been on the road with fellow alt-country movers and shakers Murder By Death and Langhorne Slim. They're swinging back through these parts on August 28, when they're headlining a date at the Replay Lounge. And, as a random non-sequitur,  bassist, Luke Long, divulged this time-worn nugget of wisdom in the band's newsletter:

Life is always better with your shirt off. When backed into the corner, remove the cloth from thine back. It makes the good great, and the bad better. P.S.: This is not gender specific.
