I’m speachless. This is new Sufjan. Yes I said NEW Sufjan live from Ithaca, NY recently. It’s hard to even recognize this as the Sufjan we last heard four years ago. Nonetheless, exciting!

Really interesting video from Grizzly Bear’s latest single, While You Wait for the Others. Still the only track to receive a score of 10 on Pitchfork’s track reviews. I’m a huge fan of stop motion and fencing ensembles, so obviously this video pleases my eyes.

I’m constantly looking on Pitchfork for the “best new albums”. I was pleasantly surprised to see Wild Beasts new album Two Dancers on the list. I immediately gave it a listen and was hooked. It’s nice to see modern day glam-rock doing successfully. Their video for track 2 (Hooting & Howling) is phenomenal. Enjoy.

Thanks to Britticisms I just discovered a new artist/musician. Ernest Greene aka Washed Out makes some really great underground lo-fi bedroompop music and has an amazing blog full of the best photos (above). His music is definitely something that will be up and coming soon. Take a listen before everyone else beats you to it!

My good blogging friend Greg Enemy showed me this clip a while back. I think Lykke Li is amazing and she’s definitely one of my favorite artists right now. I’m pretty sure this video will make anyone like her 5x more…at least
