Recommended Wednesday Show: The Walkmen, Ted Leo, Freelance, Whales, Here We Go Magic, The Blow, The Wrens, Jimmy Fallon, Michael Showalter, Eugene Mirman and more for Haiti at The Bell House

My Favorite Albums of 2009: 10-1

Well, this is it.  My top ten favorite albums of 2009.  There was so much great music this year that it feels strange to narrow it down to so few albums.  I really did love each of these though, and I hope you do, too.  Let me know what you think.  I probably won’t be […]

My Favorite 50 Songs of 2009: 20-11

To recap:  As for My Favorite 50 Songs of 2009, I made a few rules for myself.  First, a band can only appear once.  Also, this is purely about singles I enjoy.  For instance, I would never put Harlem Shakes’ Technicolor Health on my favorite albums list, but “Sunlight” made it pretty high on this list […]

CMJ: Tuesday Night's Recommended Show

This isn’t the kind of little CMJ show where you go and discover a bunch of great little gems that you’ve never heard of before.  This is one of those CMJ shows where you all you can think is, “Wow, a bill this weirdly awesome would never happen otherwise.”  Here We Go Magic, Titus Andronicus, […]

Recommended Weekend Shows: The Holiday Breakdown (plus four great MP3s)

Of course the one weekend when I decide I’m going to take a break from indie-rockdom and get out of this city is the weekend that someone decides to pack every sweet band into all at once.  Doesn’t it always seem to work that way?  If your 4th of July plans aren’t taking you away […]

Recommended Thursday Show: Grizzly Bear and Here We Go Magic at Public Assembly

  [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjecYugTbIQ&hl=en&fs=1&color1=0x234900&color2=0x4e9e00] Veckatimest, blah, blah, blah, 9.0, blah, blah, album we’ve all been waiting for, blah, blah, blah, blah.  So yes, Grizzly Bear’s new album Veckatimest is finally, officially out, and yes, everyone is talking about it.  Yes, Pitchfork gave it a 9.0 and it feels like Animal Collective all over again.  I’ve listened to […]

SXSW Sampler, Part I

I’ve been a bit busy this week preparing for SXSW.  I want to bring you the very best coverage I can (partying it up with Racheal Ray and The Hold Steady) so I’ve been lacking a bit on the writing this week.  I’d like to attempt to make it up to you by putting together […]

Recommended Tuesday Show: Here We Go Magic at Le Poisson Rouge

It’s been a long weekend.  The snow totally threw me off my game plan today, though having a snow day at 22 years old was a pretty great feeling.  Unfortunately, most of the day was spent trying to figure out how to get back to New York from Northern Virginia, so I was left without […]

New(ish) Song/Video – Here We Go Magic's "Tunnelvision"

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fer4JUpYWV0&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0] This song has been kicking around the blogosphere for awhile now, and this neat video came out for it last week.  Here We Go Magic (some of you might recognize the band as Luke Temple’s project) is definitely going to be one of the next big buzz bands, so stay tuned for more from […]

Recommended Monday Show: Department of Eagles at Bowery Ballroom

Imagine a couple members of Grizzly Bear form a side project that’s more intimate and emotional, with equally good songwriting.  Sound like the best thing ever?  That’s pretty much Department of Eagles.  I’ve never seen them live or even seen any video, but I’m impressed enough by their latest album, In Ear Park that I can […]
