Jan 20, 2007

Countdown to Tuesday

Tuesday, January 23rd is a big day for the music. We're really getting this 2007 started.

MP3s included where available.

I probably don't need to remind you of this one:

The Shins
Wincing the Night Away: streaming right now at MySpace.
Sounds Shinsalicious!
No DC date set yet.

The Tiny
Starring, Someone Like You! (US Release): I love what I've heard on MySpace from this Swedish trio.
The Tiny doesn't look to have a US tour lined up, but you can catch Hej Hej, DC's only DJ night dedicated to Scandinavian pop and rock, next Thursday at Saint-Ex. Maybe Seeking Irony or WeirdCurves will play a little.

Of Montreal (of Athens, GA)
Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?
Heimdalsgate Like A Promethean Curse >>mp3
Will play the State Theater on March 6 (via MySpace)

Ghost Stories
I've been listening to cuts from this album since November 20, so I'm excited it's finally out to the masses. It's got lots of competition for attention, but it's a worthy effort and possibly my favorite of the bunch.
The Upper Ten, The Lower Five >>mp3

Friend Opportunity
+81 >>mp3
Will be at the Black Cat February 11.

Animal Collective
People, a Fat Cat EP
People >>mp3
I just read they signed with a new label, so I assume this is a must-fulfill-contract-duties-EP. Purely an assumption.

I'm listening to The Tiny, thanks for the recommendation!

A little mellow for DJ music, but I'm enjoying it.
