Surfer Blood recently came by our store in Philly to discuss their music, time travel, our founding fathers and our spirits ROOT and SNAP. Check it out:
We recently caught up with the awesome LA “cat-rock” band Best Coast at their recent Philly gig and discussed their music, their teen idols, eggs, our organic spirits ROOT and SNAP and since lead singer Bethany is a huge Seinfeld fan, we decided to play a little game of F**K, MARRY, KILL using characters from the show. Enjoy!
While in town to promote their new album Hexadecagon, Austin psych-pop band The Octopus Project will be stopping by our store this Thursday (10/7) at 2pm for a FREE in-store performance. Space is limited, so be sure to tweet to us @artintheage or RSVP to our Facebook Event Page to make sure you reserve a spot! Download their newest mind-bending track below and check out more MP3 samples on their website.
Last night I caught Nurses play in Philly and was definitely blown away. It wasn’t that they have the most original sound around, (Grizzly Bear x Animal Collective is the most common comparison) but they sounded amazing. Their new album, Apple’s Acre, is a breath of fresh, North-western air and the perfect soundtrack to begin the Fall season. It was exquisite how those layered, quirky pop songs gained a new dimension of depth and made the band sound as though they were playing in a stadium rather than a small club. I suspect you will be hearing a lot more from this Portland-based trio in the future. For now, you can download a track from the album below.
The Lo-fi, fuzzed-out Glam Rock of The Smith Westerns‘ new B-side “Girl in Love” from their fourth 7″ owes as much to T-Rex as it does early Elephant 6. Blown out guitars mixed with thumping snares shoot this power-pop gem straight into your heart. (via GvsB)
Pre-order the ‘Be My Girl” b/w ‘Girl in Love” 7″ now at Pure Groove.
The Big Pink‘s new single “Dominos” has all the makings of a brilliant pop song — a head-bobbing rhythm, quality production and an addicting chorus that actually gets more awesome upon repeated listening. If you like The Stone Roses and other like-minded brit bands as much as we do, then you’ll be pressed to find another new UK group better than these guys.
