Veronica Falls - Teenage [VIDEO/MP3]

MP3: Veronica Falls - Teenage

Great song from Veronica Falls' sophomore album Waiting for Something to Happen. I think this band is fanfuckingtastic; I dug the hell out of their last one and I am really into this new effort. No pressure to you, dear reader. Just sayin'.

The Best Song Ever: Mick Fleetwood - You Weren't In Love [MP3]

MP3: Mick Fleetwood - You Weren't In Love

Mick Fleetwood's solo album The Visitor is a weird one - he doesn't sing on it, he just drums while other dudes belt it out. There are plenty of cool moments on it though, and "You Weren't In Love" is chock full of them. Enjoy.

Sally Shapiro - Starman (feat. Electric Youth) [STREAM]

Always glad to hear new pop music from Sweden's Sally Shapiro, and their newest single "Starman" comes packaged with bonus all-stars: Electric Youth (whom we all fondly remember from the genius Drive soundtrack) co-wrote and appear on the track, giving it a little extra shine... and boy does it.

Keep an eye open February 26th for Somewhere Else, coming out on Paper Bag Records.

Pissed Jeans - Cathouse [MP3]

Here's another taste from Pissed Jeans forthcoming album Honeys, out Feb 12th from Sub Pop. No worries - it rules.

The Best Song Ever: Bromar - Call Me Up [MP3]

MP3: Bromar - Call Me Up

My friend Derek B. posted this Bromar song on Twitter last week and I've been obsessed with it since: "Call Me Up" comes from a 12 inch single, released back in 1985. and that's pretty much all that's known, but these dudes are too cool.

Colleen Green - Time in the World [MP3]

MP3: Colleen Green - Time in the World

One of the many things 2012 lacked was any new Colleen Green material, but do not fear: this glorious  new year has redeemed the past with March 19's Sock it to Me, and it is quite anticipated by me and probably the whole world too.

HOT TRAXXX: The Men - Electric [STREAM]

It's a new year, which means we can count on The Men releasing another killer album - New Moon comes out March 5th, while the first single "Electric" will be released as a 7 inch later this month, with non-album cut "Water Babies" on side B. Oh yes, I like 2013 very much.
