El Perro Del Mar - "Walk On By"

You're probably thinking from the title that this is a cover of that song. It's not. But it's still worth stopping for.

Freelance Whales - "Spitting Image"

And I quote: "ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh." Yup. Sixteen "oohs" in that chorus. As someone who has always been a sucker for horns, handclaps, oohs and ba-ba-bahs, this is a song I can get behind.

YN RichKids - "Hot Cheetos and Takis"

Maybe, if you don't read Grantland, or visit the internet much, you haven't heard this yet. If so, let me be the one to present you with  Y.N.RichKids' ode to snacking "Hot Cheetos and Takis."

"my hands are red like Elmo" has found a place in my favourite rap lines of all time list.

The Men - "Candy"

To borrow from Natalie Merchant; "Candy everybody wants..."

Mount Eerie - "Ocean Roar"

Friends, I have been to the ocean, and the ocean does not roar like this. But it does rule like this.

Shortcircles - "Take Flight"

I'm about to book it for the weekend, but before I take flight myself, I figured I'd share this delicate gem with everyone...

Mock and Toof - "My Head"

This has been running around my head today...

  'My Head' by mockandtoof

Vocals by Ghostape, from the forthcoming album Temporary Happiness.

Chrome Canyon - "Generations"

This feels like it could have been on the soundtrack to the original Tron, or maybe on one of those PBS science programs in the early 80s.

Dum Dum Girls - "Lord Knows"

Lord Knows I loved the Dum Dum Girls last record, Only In Dreams. And after hearing this first new track, I can't wait for the End Of Daze.


Alice Russell - "Heartbreaker"

The heartbreak for me was that when I met Alice Russell in person, I discovered my musical crush was just too short for me - but she's head-and-shoulders above the competition when it comes to slaying a vocal like she does here.

I will be writing about the new Evening Hymns album at some point on Ear To The Sound, but for now, check out the first video from the forthcoming record, Spectral Dusk.

Grizzly Bear - "Yet Again"

If Grizzly Bear keep posting songs from the record one at a time, any readers I have will be uttering the title of this one...

Land Observations - "Appian Way"

I have no idea what the "Appian Way" actually is, but after listening to this new track inspired by it, I'm willing to adopt it...
