Few things brought me more joy this week than this new music video from Wolf Parade. There's more where that came from if you explore the work of James Kerr. And there's more music coming from Wolf Parade if you wait until October 6 for Cry Cry Cry.
Awake, My Love! from Childish Gambino dropped last December and the track "Redbone" has followed me ever since. Popping up at birthday parties, coffee shops, and even in my own home. It's time to acknowledge its power over me and embed it onto this webpage, this playlist, and my soul.
John Congleton and the Nighty Nite
Speaking of following me around, John Congleton's name has been all over some of my favorite recent albums from St. Vincent and Angel Olsen to The Districts and Future Islands. To pay tribute to his impressive catalog of work, here's a jam from his own band, John Congleton and the Nighty Nite from last year's album Until The Horror Goes.
