the depreciation guild
Urban Outfitters are still doing their music compilations. Just checked in the other day and saw that they are on #7 now! Think I missed three or four in between. LSTN #7 features The Dodos, The Depreciation Guild, Free Energy and two tracks we hyped on Indie Music Filter Volume 6 (Calypso Gold by Princeton and Dominos by The Big Pink). As well, LSTN #7 features one of my favorite songs of the year (that I tried to get for IMF Vol 6), Feel It All Around by Washed Out. E-mailed a few times to get clearance for the track for our mix, but no response. Guess we’ll need to team up with a chic lifestyle retailer before we start going after the harder to get tracks. Hope Depot presents Indie Music Filter Volume 7?
Gotta work on that.
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.
