Song of the Day – Tuesday 12/7/2010 PJ Harvey December 7, 2010

PJ Harvey will release her eighth album, Let England Shake which is scheduled for release on 2/14/2011 in the UK and on 2/15/2011 in the US.  She made the following statement to the BBC regarding her new album:

“I think a lot of my work has often been about the interior, the emotional, what happens inside oneself.  This time I’ve just been looking out, so it’s not only to do with taking a look at England, but taking a look at the world and what’s happening in the current day world affairs.  But always trying to come from the human point of view because I don’t feel qualified to sing from a political standpoint.”

Miz Polly Jean will embark on a mini-European Tour (which is already sold out) in February, and will hit the festival circuit this Summer…

Harvey – Written on the Forehead




Song of the Day – Wednesday 12/1/2010 These New Puritans December 1, 2010

So NME came out with their Top Ten of 2010 on Monday (guess the Brits are sure that December will not yield any contenders…Hello?!  What about Daft Punk’s and Jessica Simpson’s albums that are scheduled to drop next week?!).  Who do you think made number one?  Drumroll please…

Congratulations British art rockers, These New Puritans, you’re album Hidden just made NME’s number one!!!  You beat out MizMuze’s top-three contenders for the number one spot.  Spoiler alert: Beach House, Arcade Fire and LCD Soundsystem will most likely be my number one—but stay tuned, a dark horse (or deer) may just take the lead. 

So what are your favorite albums of 2010? 

These New Puritans – We Want War

Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs Officially Drops Today August 3, 2010

The most anticipated album of the year is finally here!

Arcade Fire’s third LP, The Suburbs was released today.  The concept behind the album began in 2009, when front man Win Butler received a letter from his childhood friend from outside of Huston, Texas:

“He sent us a picture of him with his daughter on his shoulders at the mall around the corner from where we lived, and the combination of seeing this familiar place and seeing my friend with his child brought back a lot of feeling from that time. I found myself trying to remember the town that we grew up in and trying to retrace as much as I could remember.”

Pick up this amazing album, and for today only, Amazon is offering the MP3 format of The Suburbs for $3.99 and the CD for $7.99!!!  Click here to download and get the deets.

Arcade Fire – Ready to Start

MizMuze is all about supporting the home team, therefore Thee Oh Sees (formerly The Ohsees, OCS, Orange County Sound, Orinoka Crash Suite) are a San Francisco underground garage rock band who may be very well be one of the hardest working bands out there—in the past few years they have released six full-length LPs and four EPs!  Their latest album, Warm Slime dropped on 5/11/2010…

Thee Oh Sees – I Was Denied



Song of the Day – Thursday 6/10/2010 The Joy Formidable June 10, 2010

The Joy Formidable are Ritzy Bryan, Rhydian Dafydd and Matt Thomas, a three-piece band from London via North Wales.   Their music has been described as “primal epic grunge rock á la The Breeders, Arcade Fire and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.”

Song of the Day – Tuesday 5/18/2010 Broken Social Scene May 18, 2010

MizMuze had some upload issues (most likely user-error) and had intended on featuring Band of Horses’ song “Factory” today (see the next post for more info). 

So instead, please enjoy a tune from Canada’s Broken Social Scene; a musical collective (sometimes as large as 19 band members) which include members from Stars, Metric, Feist, and Jason Collett.  The band’s fourth studio album, Forgiveness Rock Record was released on 5/4/2010. 

Look!  Up in the sky…it’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s Supergroup, Broken Social Scene!
