We make nature make-out music.
We are not on Twitter, but for a little variety in your Voreplay this month, here are 140 character (or less) takes on the albums we’ve been spinning recently.
Adele, 21. Watching to see if “Grey’s Anatomy” or “Desperate Housewives” features “Rumour Has It” 1st. #betterthantheKYDerby!
James Blake, James Blake. Consider us dubstep skeptics. In fact, we refudiate dubstep. There.
Broken Bells, Meyrin Fields EP. Danger Mouse sneezed and out came this EP. It was only four bucks.
Fleet Foxes, Helplessness Blues. A 50-minute time capsule from 1972. This is what a field of wildflowers would listen to during a makeout session.
Mittie Root, Till The Cows Come Home. Kids music that grown-ups can appreciate too. Like Pixar! By our friend Cindy Hostetler.
Raphael Saadiq, Stone Rollin’. Sweet-sounding, timeless retro soul and R&B. h/t Erik Brueggemann. Yes please may we have another.
Radiohead, King of Limbs. A minor contribution to the Radiohead canon, KoL is the sound of a band capable of great things noodling around. #creepyartwork!
tUnE-yArDs, w h o k i l l. Weird capitalization and spacing are fair warning! This is quirky, radio-unfriendly but insistently catchy music. It’s growing on us.
TV On The Radio, Nine Types Of Light. “Second Song” may be confused about what track it is (one), but it’s still a great song. #thesaxisback!
The Walkmen, Everyone Who Pretended To Like Me Is Gone. The only Walkmen album we own, which needs to change after we heard them open for New Pos @ Bogarts. #Bogartssux
The sax is back!
