So much to mention, I’ll get to it.
–Strokes lead singer Julian Casablancas is set to release a solo record called ‘Phrazes For The Young’. Head here for a preview. Or watch the vid.
-The new Dodos album leaked on to the net 2 months before the street date, so the band decided to put it online to stream. I haven’t had the chance to sit down with the whole record, but I’m warming up the the third track ‘Fables’, which P4k has online.
Waves – Holly Miranda[audio:http://www.indiemusicfilter.com/audio/Waves.mp3]
Need that song for the 2:44pm daydream at your desk? Check out Waves from Holly Miranda, lead singer from Brooklyn’s Jealous Girlfriends. A beautiful combination of organs melting into walls of reverb, a sexy voice and a distant tambourine fighting to be heard against the backing drums. It comes from her debut record, which was produced by TVOTR‘s David Sitek. Both the Tripwire and P4K have another track from the album, Slow Burn Treason, featuring another TVOTR member Kyp Malone. For fans of Mazzy Star, Beach House, Karen O.
If you’re lucky enough to live in NY, check her out at one of her tourdates below, more info on myspace.
