Listen Up! (Week 1)…

Kicking off our weekly spin list; we will let you know what albums have been getting the most plays from us this week. Click album covers for some tasty music…

Sigur Rós - Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust

Sigur Rós - Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust

Icelandic dream-pop collective Sigur Ros has been garnering a lot of attention this week. Known for their dreamy landscapes and lush music arrangements, this is pretty much the perfect album for a rainy afternoon.

Dr. Dog - Fate

Dr. Dog - Fate

Dr. Dog has creeped right into my favorites, which is a feet in and of itself. These guys need your attention. Melding feelings of nostalgia and swank, Dr. Dog have made an album that will be in many year end lists. An album for a joy ride. (Look for a full review very soon)
Fleet Foxes - S/T

Fleet Foxes - S/T

The Fleet Foxes seemingly came out of no where, with their high octave vocals and penchant for Beach Boy’s-esque harmonies. I have found myself coming back to this again and again. They even inspire artists.

The Botticellis - Old Home Movies

The Botticellis - Old Home Movies

Not many people know about this band yet, and that is quite a shame; they are on my short list for album of the year. The sweet morning melodies, the knack for harmony, and the ability to just put a smile on your face.

[That’s all for this weeks edition. Check back every weekend for a new ‘Listen Up!’.]

  1. Hey there!

    I’m really enjoying the Fleet Foxes album-White Winter Hymnal is a gorgeous song-have you seen the video?

  2. I second that comment about the Fleet Foxes. It has been my staple album the last few weeks. Anthony is this your blog? If so, it’s amazing! If not, it’s still amazing.
