Even I’ve taken my chances. Are We There is due May 27 via Jagjaguwar.
Seriously. Oxymoron is due Tuesday.
Dirty Projectors’ Nat Baldwin does some beautiful things with a bass violin. Please refer to 2011’s People Changes if you haven’t already and watch this video. “In the Hollows,” the title track from Nat’s new album (due April 29 via Western Vinyl), is available for download below and is straight up f*cking amazing.
I’ve seen Phantogram twice now (a small stage at a street fair and a sold out show at the Hollywood Bowl) and would bet that this song sounds super good live. The NY band’s sophomore album Voices is due February 18 via Republic.
Arcade Fire violinist and composer of all the pretty stuff in Her has dropped a trailer for his new album, featuring Brian Eno and this phenomenal song. In Conflict is due May 12 via Domino Records.
