A brilliant, haunting song by Haelos, this trio has been on my playlist since I saw them at SXSW earlier this year. Their moody, dark debut reminds me of bands like the XX as well as 90’s era trip hop. This track is just one of many good ones on their album and it’s worth your time. Listen.
Not gonna lie, I picked this song because of the title. It’s a pretty smooth tune. You can probably set this as your alarm clock thing for when you wake up and it’d be something you wouldn’t mind. This dude also has songs called ‘Airplane mode’ and ‘Breaktfast Poutine’ so his song titling game is strong.
Don’t know how, but Jack Bauer has a new music video out. I guess it doesn’t come as a surprise, since Kiefer Sutherland is
a) From the west
b) In Young Guns (Blaze of Glooooory)
C) in the Cowboy Way (that movie where he was a cowboy in the city)
D) A new cowboy movie called the Forsaken
So basically, he is probably a cowboy in some shape or form, and while this is a perfectly passable country song (according to Paul), I can’t believe he didn’t throw some wink wink nudge nudge lyrics from 24 on here, for his diehard fans.
Here’s what I would have included
- CHLOE! CHLOE!
– We haven’t got the time dammit!
– I don’t want to hurt you, but I will, if I have to (could actually be a country music lyric)
– Get me President Palmer!
– Why’s my daughter being chased by a mountain lion?
I miss 24, such a good show. Here’s the video. It didn’t even start with the CTU countdown (do do dooooo doooooo)
Keifer’s new album Down in the Hole drops in April.
Chicago post-rock outfit Tortoise are back with their latest release, The Catastrophist. It’s a welcome return, as the band hasn’t released a full length studio album since 2009’s Beacons Of Ancestorship.
In the time between those albums, it`s like they haven`t missed a beat, continuing on with the heavily synth based sounds of their last few releases, but also expanding their sound by adding vocals for the first time in their career. Alongside their cover of David Essex`s “Rock On,” Tortoise also collaborate with Yo La Tengo`s Georgia Hubley on “Yonder Blue,” a pretty little number that brings to mind her main band`s 2000 release And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out.
Tortoise are currently on a tour that brings them to Toronto for a show at Lee`s Palace on March 12 alongside Mind Over Mirrors and Last Ex.
