I've been told that Dive are as close to the text book definition of a buzz band in 2012 as humanly possible, and I'm not so sure I can disagree. The first word out of nearly everyone's mouth is "hypnotic", they started as the side project of a band that's already established buzz , and of course they signed to Brooklyn darlings Captured Tracks without an EP to their name. OK now that that's out of the way, I can cut the cynicism. Captured Tracks is a really fantastic label, and Dive totally [...]

There's a new Beach House song... which means its safe to say the internet just exploded. "Myth" is the first single from their new album Bloom, to be released later this summer. The percussion feels colder, and the synths are slightly less cloudy than most of Teen Dream, but in general, "Myth" isn't too much of a departure. If the rest of Bloom sounds this good though, no one will be complaining.
Youtube cover star turned original musician (think Indie Justin Bieber?) Colin Caulfield will release his 3rd album as Young Man. Although he's been touring with a full band for over a year now, Young man was always Caulfield's solo venture in the studio. The new album, Vol 1 is Young Man's first full band project and the rhythm section is a welcome addition. On his first two releases moments of bliss floated in and out of focus, but the etheral wanderings tended to drag on past their welcome. Anchoring Caulfield's knack for breezy melodies into a more committed form, Vol [...]
Cloud Nothings seem to have a thing for consistently bizarre music videos . Their visual style on the new video seems to take a hint from their beefier new album, with unnerving realism and a bit of a Paranormal Activity vibe. Its still pretty weird though. Check the video out (thanks to Urban Outfitters?) on vimeo. Cloud Nothings - "No Future / No Past" Official Video from Urban Outfitters on Vimeo . Cloud Nothing's incredible sophomore album " Attack [...]
Originally the solo project of Alex Schaaf, Yellow Ostrich might finally get the recognition they deserve. In the last few years, the band has been making big moves, expanding to a trio (that contains one of indie music's finest multi-instrumentalists ) and signing to Barsuk Records. Last year the Barsuk re-released their latest album , and 2012 brings their official label debut. "I am a Marathon Runner" is the first single off of that album, "Strange Land" and a huge artistic leap for the band. Easing off the expressive vocal loops that characterized most of his early work, [...]
If the concept of a local super group is even possible, Aircraft fit the bill. Some of Tallahassee's finest musicians, including Jake Tobin ( Fruit Flesh ), Malee Brigardner ( Moonlasso ), James Folker ( Water Brother ) and Ben Varian all take part in the collective. Last March I got a chance to check them out at Total Bummer, and their sound was more than ambitious enough to match the skills of their members. Taking cues from the most anthemic of indie bands (think Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene) the band tore through one of the best [...]
For anyone out there afraid 2012 isn't off to a great start, Tuesday January 24th is looking like the first big day of the year. Two of the most hotly anticipated releases of the winter are both being released that day, Cloud Nothing's Attack on Memory and Porcelain Raft's Strange Weekend. Over the weekend, both albums were made available for streaming for those of us who prefer to listen before we buy. Coincidentally, both albums mark exciting new production styles for the bands. Porcelain Raft's first proper LP adds a professional layer of studio gloss, without fundamentally changing his warped, [...]
South Carolina's twee-folk rascals Those Lavender Whales release their debut album January 17th, but decided to let us all hear it a few days early. Tomahawk is filled to the brim with songs that just make me smile, and I'd highly suggest it to everyone. Stream the entire album over at Fork and Spoon's website , and expect a full review on Athid in the very near future.
Real Estate - "Easy" from Tom Scharpling I think this the first time I've posted a a music video that premiered on Funny Or Die. The internet is a strange and wonderful place though, so hopefully this won't be the last.
Mauro Remiddi continues to build the hype surrounding his full length debut "Strange Weekend" with the release of his second single. "Unless You Speak from the Heart" follows in the high fidelity footsteps of the album's first single, and unwinds most of the nervous tension. Centering around a bouncing, whimsical synth line, the track is the first Porcelain Raft song that's unabashedly fun. The keys and percussion bring to mind a sugar coated Walk in the Park , but (not unlike that song) the guitar part is the real joy. The soldering iron line breaks through around the half [...]
A few months back the lovely Avis Elizabeth asked me to contribute to her super rad arts zine. I gladly accepted, and since I don't know how to do anything else I made a mixtape. The zine also includes much more exciting contributions like short stories, poetry, art and photography. To quote Avis, the issue revolves around "Identity. How people, places/your environment, experiences shape self." It can be a bit of a downer at times, but then again so can life. If you'd like to check out the zine you can read the whole thing for free online right [...]

UK synth pop group Labyrinth Ear are prepping to release their second EP on February 7th. The band starting gaining buzz around their Arthur Russel cover last year, but they had all but disappeared from my awareness until I saw their single floating around various blogs today. Humble Bones is a subtle improvement on their current sound, exuding a level of confidence like nothing they've released so far. A fine introduction to the band's dark tropical pop that's sure to gain momentum. &amp;lt;p&a mp;amp;amp;gt;&amp ;amp;lt;a href=" http://labyrinthear.bandcamp.c om/track/humble-bones"& ;amp;amp;amp;gt;Humble Bones by Labyrinth Ear&amp;amp;lt;/a& amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;&am p;amp;amp;lt;/p&am p;gt; [...]
