Song of the Day – Wednesday 12/29/2010 Million Young December 29, 2010

Florida’s Million Young aka, Mike Diaz is surfing the wave of Chaz Bundwick and Ernest Green—you know them better as Toro y Moi and Washed Out, so of course it’s a chillwave.    

Perhaps Diaz’s wave is a couple of years behind the rest of the chillwavers, but he’s good at what he does, plus, he’s got what the other’s don’t—he’s a musical soothsayer…

Back in 2009 Diaz was talking about what bands he was currently listening to and made the prediction about Beach House, “2010 hasn’t even started yet, but judging from the bits I’ve heard of Teen Dream, I can tell these guys already have a serious album of the year contender by anyone’s standards.”  If the music thing doesn’t work out (MizMuze predicts it will) perhaps he can make it as a fortune-teller.

Million Young’s EP, Be So True  was released on 1/26/10.

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

Song of the Day – Thursday 11/18/2010 Tapes ‘n Tapes November 18, 2010

Minnesota indie rockers, Tapes ‘n Tapes are Josh Grier on guitar and lead vocals, Matt Kretzmann on keys and horns, Erik Appelwick on bass guitar and backing vocals, and Jeremy Hanson on percussion.  The band’s third album, Outside will hit stores on 1/11/2011 and will be released on their very own label, Ibid Records

Josh Grier states, “We weren’t worried about if our label thought the mix was right for radio.  We weren’t making a record that a label was going to own.  We were just making a record for ourselves.  We feel very fortunate that we got to make it the way we wanted with such a great group of people.  We can’t wait for people to hear the record.”

Well if you can’t wait to see Tapes ‘n Tapes when they sing ‘n sing in front of a live audience, then you can catch them at Bottom of the Hill on 3/11/2011…

Song of the Day – Wednesday 11/3/2010 Deerhoof November 3, 2010

So MizMuze lost, and then found her Flip Cam recently; and while the politicians, pundits, and poll results were streaming on the tube last night, I was experimenting with more important things — like uploading concert videos.  Apologies to subscribers if you were inundated with emails last night, still trying to figure out how VodPod works. 

San Francisco indie rockers, Deerhoof are scheduled to release their new album, Deerhoof vs. Evil on 1/25/2010, and you can download their single “The Merry Barracks” for free here.

See Deerhoof fight evil when they hit the Great American Music Hall on 1/28/2011…

Avey Tare aka David Portner, is one of the founding members of Animal Collective.  His debut solo album, Down There was released today.  The album has been described as “a murky world of sound, an alien death world of soul grooves that is both honest and otherworldly.  Wait for sundown and turn it up loud.  Take a ride on this haunted boat and let yourself be guided through deep sloshy rhythms, waterlogged bass, and moonlit breaks in the canopy that reveal a crisp crystalline pop buzz.”
