Song of the Day – Monday 12/20/2010 Young Prisms December 20, 2010

San Francisco psychedelic/shoegazing/garage/beach-pop quintet Young Prisms are preparing for the January 18 release of their debut full-length Friends For Now on Kanine Records who have described the Young Prisms’ sound as “this music will make you want to drop acid and become a recluse. Or it will make you even less excited to work your shitty day job. Or it will make you jump up and down in a dark crowded room while your eardrums bleed. Or it will make you feel something secret like happiness, minus any sentimental whimsicality. Or it will make you want to read Sarte, or graphic comic books, or maybe Hunter Thompson. And in one hundred years when people want to know what it felt like to be young on the West Coast in the early new millennium, they might just put on this record, by these rising kings (and queen) of Psychedelic Slackerdom.”

The single “These Days” was released as a 7″ split with Mathemagic on Atelier Ciseaux.

Song of the Day – Tuesday 9/7/2010 Bethany Cosentino, Kid Cudi, and Rostam Batmanglij September 7, 2010

It’s the day after Labor Day and you know what that means…it’s the symbolic end of Summer.  So put away your white pants and let’s listen to one last song to commemorate our favorite season…

Creating an exclusive track for Converse, Bethany Cosentino from Best Coast, Kid Cudi, and Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend sing an ode to waiting all year long for Summer.  So now that Summer’s over, you’re just now realizing how good you had it, how great Summer made you feel, and how much you took it for granted.  Now, of course, you want Summer back.  But don’t despair, you’ll get back together in 9 months, but until then, download “All Summer” here.

Song of the Day – Wednesday 6/30/2010 Magic Kids June 30, 2010

One part Polyphonic spree, one part Phil Spector, and one huge helping of Brian Wilson and that’s the recipe for Memphis Tennessee’s Magic Kids.  Their debut album, Memphis will drop on 8/24/10.   

The Magic Kids will be supporting Ariel Pink on 7/10/10 at Bimbo’s in San Francisco.

Song of the Day – Thursday 3/11/2010 Best Coast March 11, 2010

In one week (6 days to be exact) more than 1,800 bands from all over the world will converge on Austin, Texas from March 17-21 for the South by  Southwest Music Festival!  Sadly, MizMuze can’t leave her day job to attend this year’s SXSW…but, we can all be there in spirit as MizMuze will be featuring a must-see SXSW band for the SOTD for the next two weeks.

Today’s band, Best Coast are a duo from LA fronted by Bethany Cosentino who brings her breathy, muffled, lo-fi 60’s garage rock/surf pop sound to the SXSW scene.  Bethany describes Best Coast best as “songs about summer and the sun and the ocean and being a lazy creep with drums, beach boys’ bass lines, and other amazing things.”
