The Depreciation Guild. Recently on the radar as related to recent Sync/Master subjects The Pains of Being Pure At Heart (their drummer is one half of Brooklyn duo The Depreciation Guild. Head to their homepage and click on the yellow bar (‘Album’) to get their album for free. Pay specific attention to Darklooming. Quite nice. For fans of M83 and Nintendo.
Here We Go Magic. Tunnelvision never really grabbed me. I tried a couple times. Watched the video. The song kept on repeating over and over, and I guess I wanted it to vary. Maybe I should have heard Fangela first, because it sounds more up my alley. Squint your ears on some parts and hear Animal Collective doing Floyd. Not quite ready to call them the next big thing just yet.
Patrick Watson. Found this new track on Brooklyn Vegan, the 2nd track off the upcoming album ‘Wooden Arms‘ (May 5th, Secret City). Check out Tracey’s Waters. For fans of M Ward, Jeff Buckley, Chris Martin.
I heard about this movie from reading The Playlist. The film is getting pretty good reviews, but its also has a killer soundtrack. MGMT, Ting Tings (who played here last night, I went to Annuals), Black Kids, and some Canadian love on there with Unicorns, New Pornographers and Patrick Watson. Dawn of the Dead by Does It Offend You, Yeah? was one of my favorite songs of the moment, until it was replaced by another DIOYY track, Being Bad Feels Pretty Good. Check it out here.
Does it scream 80’s montage? Think that’s where the song gets it name…
This is the song Jeroen Van Aken by the band Gregor Samsa (video directed by Rick Alverson from the band Spokane). It comes from the upcoming release Rest, the bands’ third full-length album in 7 years. Nine pieces composed over e-mail during the course of nine months by key members in New York, Chicago, Boston, DC and Richmond, VA.
I use the word haunting a lot here on the Filter, but I really can’t help it. Quite a beautiful video as well. For fans of Cinematic Orchestra, KC Accidental, Patrick Watson maybe?
