dunebuggy is definitely a party band. im way down with their groovy vibes and lo-fi feelings. Their cover of wild thing is worth the download. organ, drums, and far away vocals. perfect.

Get the Hell Out of the Way of the Volcano

This is the blow's first music project. its much more acoustic and focused on the vocals. Its very different from Khaela Maricich's newer releases, but not any worse.

Grouper- Cover the windows and the wall

Ambient harmonies, reverb doubled vocals, and unique samples are what flow out of Liz Harris's body and mind and into ours. purely wonderful.

Math the Band- Math the Band Banned the Math

Two kids from the east coast making the most badass music ever. this album seriously gets me PUMPED for the day, night, school, sleep, anything, anytime. Fast beats, crazy synth and the most ridiculous lyrics i have ever heard can be found on this album. Seriously the best show i have ever been to.

Charles Bukowski-Poems and Insults

Poet-author Charles Bukowski amused a lot of people by getting drunk, behaving badly and then writing inspired half-truths about it. Here’s his greatest hits package. Recorded at the city lights poets theater in san francisco, 1973. 

get this

Black Lips- Let it Bloom

While listening to the static mixed with upbeat melodies, i find myself in a better mood, singing a long to all the great songs and dancing in my car. its pretty lo-fi but with great instrument playing and catchy beats to sing a lot to.

Radiohead- Amnesiac

This is one of Radiohead's most experimental albums and it is absolutely glorious. Every song on this album has a different feel, but all of them are epic and powerful. You and Whose Army is my favorite song on this album, probably my favorite Radiohead song. The album comes off somewhat melancholy and blue and is a good listen on a rainy drive.

Yann Tiersen-Amelie Soundtrack

This soundtrack is just as wonderful and breathtaking as the film itself. Yann Tiersen is a unique sound that is so beautiful, I cant help but get lost in it. His piano melodies and accordion takes me back to the streets of France where I can people watch and wear a buret. Its powerful and subtle all at once. Every song is just as grand as the others.


the film trailer

whip it soundtrack

I didn't expect to like this movie as much as i did. A lot of it was chicks beating each other up, which is always pretty sweet. The story itself, and the cinematography captured  me in a way that hardly any other movie did this year so far. Along with an enlightening film, the soundtrack was just as delightful. I would recommend seeing this film before listening to the soundtrack, it feels so much better when listening. Kudos to Drew Berrymore, her first directing of a film.

too good

fever to tell


I dont know what Karen O was thinking on her latest album, but it definitely wasn't the influences for this album. Fever to Tell collides harsh guitar and beautiful female vocals for the outcome of amazing, punkish songs. Every song on this album is different and  gets this listener into their unique and creative melodies. Everybody should listen to the whole album at least once.

The Traditional Fools

This is Ty Segall's wonderful lo-fi surf band. Although Ty's music gets you on your feet and makes you groove, this is even better. if you have a chance to seem them live, i highly recommend it; their almost too good live.


Mount Eerie-Singers

These songs were recorded over a 5 year period in Olympia and Anacortes, Washington, during the in-between times at recording sessions and shows. Phil Elverum does not let me down with this album. He summons his friends to accompany him and harmonize the melancholy melodies that make you want to put this album on repeat on a rainy day.

Aeial Pink's Haunted Graffiti-The Doldrums (2004)

After years of recording in relative seclusion in the hills of Los Angeles, Ariel Pink (the first non-Animal Collective member on the Paw Tracks roster) made his official Paw Tracks debut with The Doldrums. Recording at home with a guitar, bass, keyboard, and 8-track (the drum sounds were created with his mouth). Aerial Pink invents a new type of genre with his unique sounds. This album is definitely an acquired taste, but if you acquire it, you will not stop.
