Soft Rock Star (Jimmy vs Joe Mix)

Image Hosted by

A re-release of Metric's debut has been made available and from it we get a intimate stripped down version of what you probably know of the band. This track has always been one of my all time favorite Metric tracks and the remix just insentuates Emily Haines clever songwriting.

25 Years and Running

Image Hosted by

The Tough Alliance get pop music. They arn't trying to be ironic. They truly know that at the heart of a great pop song theres purity and innocence. So if you feel while listening the urge to play hopscotch or jump rope thats because theres still a boy/girl inside your heart.

Window Bird

Image Hosted by

At first listen I found the piecing of the softer and heavier parts quiet stange but definitely after a few listens you really appreciate what The Stars are trying to accomplish with there lush arrangments. I don't know if it gets any more heavenly then Amy's vocals on this. Lines like "Your reckless heart, You know you got it" and "I find your mouth and try to hold it" are delivered so elegantly.

The Plot

Image Hosted by

All my favorites come from New York; The Strokes, Interpol, The French Kicks and The Walkmen. Now introducing White Rabbits who sounding very much like the latter of that talented bunch of NYC rockers. The Plot has relentless drums, some Walkmen-esqe piano and some sweet "whoaaaa's". I'm impressed.

Hazel St.

Already being hailed as best live band of 2007, Deerhunter, with a "had to be there" experience at NYC's Bowery Ballroom and there domination of the Pitchfork Festival. Lead singer Bradford Cox's vocal melody adds to a certain timelessness that bands like Animal Collective and Panda Bear have endorsed.

No I In Threesome

This is definitely the standout in Interpol's "Our Love To Admire". I don't think there is any other band out there that could pull off this song, considering its context. Interpol's style and grace is what fuels this track.
