Even though MizMuze has been under the weather, I felt much better after seeing Oberhofer open up for Neon Indian and Sleigh Bells [SB absolutely slayed the crowd, (or is it slew?)] at The Independent on Monday!

20-year-old Brad Oberhofer and the rest of the band put on a great show, so check them out next time they’re in town…

Song of the Day – Tuesday 12/28/2010 White Denim December 28, 2010

Sorry MizMuzers…I’ve been trying to write today’s and yesterday’s posts via my iPhone as Big Brother has blocked access to all social networking, blogs, merchant sites, and anything fun at my day job.  Please forgive any missing links, mislabeled pictures, incorrect info—basically, the post below may be total bollocks…

White Denim is a four-piece hailing from Austin, Texas.  Their music draws influence from dub, psychedelic rock, blues, punk rock, progressive rock, soul, jazz, experimental rock with home-based recording, jamming approach, intense looping work and unusual song structures…

You can download the band’s latest LP, Last Day of Summer on their official website for FREE here!

Song of the Day – Thursday 12/23/2010 The Rural Alberta Advantage December 23, 2010

Toronto’s indie rock trio The Rural Alberta Advantage are Nils Edenloff, Amy Cole, and Paul Banwatt.  They sing about summers in the Rockies and winters on the farm, ice breakups in the spring time and the oil boom’s charm, the mine workers on compressed, the equally depressed, the city’s slow growth and the country’s wild rose, but mostly the songs just try to embrace the disadvantage of growing up in Alberta…

You can download the single “Stamp” for FREE here!

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…
