When The Drums brought out the first single for their new album, I feel like we all let out a collective “uh oh”. Because…and I’m being nice…It wasn’t good at being music.


Then they went and released this. And TOTALLY redeemed themselves and made me realize I’m a big jerk.

Whoa, is this fantastic. Sometimes I wish I just lived in an 80’s teen film montage.

The last two posts (this one included) are strong front runners for songs of the summer for me, personally.

Outrageously gorgeous song. 

And his name is spelled in a silly manner, which is a bonus.

Hopefully you’ve still got a little bit of summer left, wherever you are. 

If not, here it is in song format.

It’s even got boobs on the cover.

Everything that was good about The Underdog + Gary Glitter = this.

Go buy this album. Spoon just gets better with age.

That Mac Demarco summer sound, though.

AM I DOING IT RIGHT, KIDS? DO I NEED TO REMOVE THE “UGH” to make it a cooler “tho”?

God damn do I love this band.

My brother went to school down in southern california and would send me their stuff and there’s something about how an older brother’s music shapes your own interests. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE their sound.

New album out October 7th. Get after it, folks.

Look. I like canadian people a lot. Do I think this is white rap? You bet.

But this dude is incredibly talented and that beat is fucking phenomenal. 

Pretend not to like this. I DARE YOU.

Everyone keeps making better Kanye West songs than Kanye West. Which is oddly in no way surprising these days.
