Song of the Day – Tuesday 12/21/2010 Psychic Powers December 21, 2010

Psychic Powers are Nik Brinkman (Over the Atlantic) and Alejandro Cohen (Lanquis) who met in LA in 2007 and created their songs through internet jam sessions as Nik was home in New Zealand.  In early 2010 they met again and completed their debut album, Infinity which is scheduled to be released this month. 

Drawing on influences from labels such as 4AD, Flying Nun, Sarah and Creation Records, the duo blends electronic pop music reminiscent of the 90′s, but with a totally modern twist…

Song of the Day – Monday 11/29/2010 OMD November 29, 2010

Yawwwn…stretch.  What’s going on?!  Am I still in a turkey-coma or am I having my favorite John Hughes dream?   You know what dream I’m talking about: It’s 1986, and I’m driving around in my pink Karmann Ghia, hanging out with Duckie and listening to The Smiths, New Order, and OMD!  I love that dream.  

Wake up!  OMG, it’s 2010 and OMD has released a new record!!!

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark released their 11th studio album, History of Modern on 9/28/2010 which is their first album since 1996, and the first album featuring the classic 4-piece line-up since 1986’s The Pacific Age

So go on, download the new album, transfer it to cassette, and let’s drive on over to TRAX and kick Steff’s preppy little ass!

Song of the Day – Wednesday 8/25/2010 Twin Shadow August 25, 2010

Brooklyn’s Twin Shadow (aka George Lewis Jr.) has released his debut album, Forget on Grizzly Bear bassist/producer, Chris Taylor’s Terrible Records label.

Now if you’re looking for an unFORGETtable deal, MizMuze has just what you’re looking for!  For a limited time, you can get the entire Forget album here for just $1!!!

Sounding a bit like Bauhaus and The Smiths, the video is a parody of the 1990’s Calvin Klein porn casting couch commercials…check it out and see if Twin Shadow really has “BIG talent”…

Vancouver’s synthpop duo, Nic M and Aja Emma formed Cosmetics in the Summer 2008.  Their debut 7” “Soft Skin” b/w “Black Leather Gloves” was released by Brooklyn label Captured Tracks in January 2010.  Their self-titled debut LP is scheduled for release this fall…

Sounding a bit like Miz Siouxsie Sioux on this minimalist darkwave track, so pull out the white face powder and black eyeliner from your “Cosmetics” bag and get dancin’ on this Monday morning…

MizMuze is one happy little muse and has been going World Cup Crazy this morning!!!  U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!  It was a 90 + minute nail-biter but now that we’ve won our group and are advancing to the Final 16, I now present you the SOTD (the short, celebratory version)…

LA recording artist, Ariel Pink and his band Haunted Graffiti released their album, Before Today on 6/8/2010 which received a 9.0 on Pitchfork’s Best New Music list…they play Bimbo’s on 7/10/2010.
