Here's a huge announcement: Quit Mumbling, Guns In The Sun, Hit City USA, & MFG present Spring Break, an unofficial SXSW event. Collectively, we're bringing you some of our favorite music from the last two years. The Men's sophomore release Open Your Heart has quickly jumped to the top of our favorite releases so far this year, with a killer tracklisting of melodic, full throttle punk rock. By year's end, we are sure this will still be on rotation, and for that reason, we can't wait to host them. Hooray [...]

We've joined forced with fellow New York City dwellers Cantora Records , Pianos , Modern Art Records , Round Hill Music , and Black Bell Records and put together a big ole day drinking party we're calling BANNERS. BANNERS is a free day party sponsored by Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum featuring Hooray For Earth , Stepdad , Fort Lean , [...]
New music here, new music there, new music everywhere! By now you've probably read my headline and you know where this is going, so let's get right to it: The Atlas Moth - whose 2011 record An Ache For the Distance was my absolute most favoritest album of the year - have followed up their [...]
En serio, wtf? The Atlas Moth covereando Hooray For Earth ? esta es una de esas cosas que jamas me hubiera imaginado pero por otra parte, The Atlas Moth ya se ha aventurado a hacer covers aun mas extraños como uno que hicieron hace un par de años de "California Dreamin'" de The Mamas And The Papas. Pero bueno, esto digamos que es un tanto diferente ya que ambas bandas han estado sonando bastante en los ultimos 12 meses y seguramente muchos de ustedes estan familiarizados con alguna u otra banda ya que Hooray For Earth [...]
This is happening… megablaag: #MEGABLAAG SXSW 2012 Sponsored by exfm YVYNYL and Ears of the Beholder are bringing the MEGABLAAG vibes back to... (Visit my blog for more!)
"I was going to town with this mod'd delay and tape deck", Hooray For Earth 's frontman Noel Heroux wrote in the track description that he uploaded a few hours ago via the band's official Soundcloud . Being quite different from the punchy drums and blown out synths we're normally used to hear from Hooray For Earth, this psych-electronic, experimental track is seriously worth a listen if you feel like being in a zoned-out mood, as he wrote us himself. Whatever this guy (or his band) does, I can't deny it's done with utter perfection each bloody time. [...]
Hooray for Earth - "True Loves" . The notion with the laser-guns is that you'd get this device, point it at someone, and make that someone disappear. They'd be detonated, demolished, turned into spray. The first laser-guns were gigantic, big as rooms, but the scientists were certain that they'd improve. The laser-guns would get smaller, small as guns, and space-cowboys'd be able to carry them in holsters, swaggery. Unfortunately the laser-guns never got smaller. The technology just didn't scale down. So we haul our laser-guns, big as rooms. in wagons the size of dance-floors. They are heavy and cumbersome. They [...]
I fully understand that my best of the year list is usually published far after many of the hip new kids. The World Forgot has long been a dessert blog, if you will, that might not provide enough sustenance on a day to day basis to get you through life, but I do provide a sweet finish. On top of that I've been able to listen through all of the albums I heard in 2011 for an extra month. In all reality this is the definitive list. Enjoy the music. 01 : Fleet [...]
Tweet vaso link Here is the latest video from Hooray For Earth, off my third favorite record of 2011.
Editor's Note Happy New Year! Some of you are probably wondering what happened to us. Well work, family, and of course organizing our little (not so little anymore) variety show Snob Theater has taken quite a bit of time away from the website. We've had probably the best year so far and I'm happy to announce my favorite records of 2011 to launch the reboot of Kata Rokkar. I don't review albums at all but i do listen to a shitload and it's been a great and surprising year for new music. [...]

In today’s day and age, the ability to obtain access to music producing software and creating multiple remixes of songs has become as easy as finding a dubstep version of Adele ’s “Rolling in the Deep”. Although most remixes turn out to be really shitty, there are a handful of amateur artists, and professionals alike, who have the keen ability to take simple elements of one song and transform into an original piece of art, 17-year-old Davis Johnson is one such individual. Johnson is the mind behind his experimental Rain Rain Man project. While attending [...]

Hooray for Earth - No Love (Rain Rain Man Remix) Noel just passed me this re-imagination of his track with the following description: “ just yesterday got this remix from a 17 year old kid I met during tour in Salt Lake City… he approached me at the show and was really enthusiastic about recording and making records. I think he’s really ahead of the game at his age, he sent me some other stuff he’s working on… His name is Davis, he goes by Rain Rain Man…” Absolutely.
For the holidays, Cymbals Eat Guitars ' buddy Noel of Hooray for Earth remixed their song 'Keep Me Waiting'. You can grab it here. We've been remiss not to post the actual promo video for the song, so watch it in the embed below. (Warning: youth hooliganism - of both sexes - up ahead.) Martin reviewed the whole of 'Lenses Alien', which you can read over here. Click here to view the embedded video.
