Wow. It's been a long time since I made a post. For all of our 3 dedicated followers I apologize. But I've got some new stuff I want to share, so I'm back. The band I want to share today is Seatraffic. I saw them last week up in SF at a free hipster concert and they were awesome, easily the best band that played. The band consists of two dudes (I don't know their names, but their both from SF), one guy on drums, the other on synth/vocals. They classify themselves as synth-pop, I would add that they have a touch of something like Explosions in the Sky, it's just kind of deep and slow. Anyway, here is one of their songs called "Beach Life" from their EP that releases at the end of this month. Check it out and let me know your thoughts.

CTR kids. CTR.

Sea Wolf

Sea Wolf is an LA based band led by Alex Church. It's some sick indie/folk. Also, they have a pretty sick name, it makes me think of this:

This song is from the "Leaves in the River" album released in 2007. Just listen.

I got a new toilet this week. I couldn't be happier...Enjoy the little things in life.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.

I think my favorite part about this band, beside the music is the name of the band. It reminds me of "Everything is Illuminated" and Sammy Davis Jr. Jr., you know, grandfather's seeing-eye bitch. With that said, the music is great and they just released an album called "It's a Corporate World."

This song is called "Nothing But Our Love." Give it a listen, now.

Live a little, drink a mountain dew today and be happy.

The Besnard Lakes

The Besnard Lakes is a four-person Canadian band formed around a husband and wife duo in 2003. I would categorize their music a melodic shoegaze or maybe a mix between The Radio Dept. and Sigur Ros plus the addition of a female singer. All-in-all it's some pretty great music with some beautiful sounds.

"Albatross" comes from their newest album released last year called "The Besnard Lakes are the Roaring Night."

Lack of understanding is the cause of fear, distrust, and hatred.

Lost in the Trees

I don't know much about the band, but I know there are 7 members and that they have two albums. I also know that this song happens to come from their album "All Alone in an Empty House." Lastly, and most importantly, I know that they create some legit music. This song is very powerful, I love the changes in the beat and the tone of the music. Then add the beautiful vocals and you got a darn good song. So give it a listen.

You have a duty to help those around you. It's a duty called life.

Peter Wolf Crier

Peter Wolf Crier hails from Minneapolis and is made up of the duo Peter Pisano (vocals/guitar) and Brian Moen (percussion/back-up vocals). They make one hell of a duo and create some beautiful indie/folk-rock style tunes. They came out with a new album last month called "Garden of Arms," and while I've only heard one song from it so far, I think I'm going to like it just as much as their first album.

The song of the day is "Hard as Nails" from their first album "Inter-Be" released last summer.

Bacon is good for me!

Midnight Musing: Hooray for Earth

Little is known about this band.  I say that because my regular sources for music knowledge didn't say much about them.  Even their own website states under their info tab, "Hooray for earth is based in New York City,  started in Boston MA.  Formed in 2006 (or 2005 possibly)."  So.. They have had an EP called Momo out for awhile.  In May they released their first full-length album titled True Loves.  It is a fantastic bit of music compared to MGMT, Yeasayer, and Passion Pit.  My favorite song from the album is called 'Same' but the only video on Youtube is a really bad live recording so instead I'll show you the single from their album which is still very good. 

Smile at somebody today, seriously. Do it.
