SUPER TUESDAY:  New Album Releases (April 7) (photo)

Posted by on

Whew, what a day for new releases! Bat For Lashes drops her sophomore album, Neil Young rocks out, The Thermals get a new drummer and record label, Bob Mould shows some impressive productivity, the “big midget” leaves Def Jam in the dust, and The Veils get inspiration from the Sooner State:

Bat For Lashes, Two Suns (left)
Just like in Star Wars!

The Thermals, Now We Can See
The perfect blend of punk and indie-rock.

Bob Mould, Life And Times
Two full length albums in two years–you go Bob Mould!

Neil Young, Fork In The Road
He chose the side of the fork that rocked!

The Veils, Sun Gangs
Used The Flaming Lips’ garage to make demos for this album (would’ve loved to have been a fly on the wall while that was happening).

It Hugs Back, Inside Your Guitar
Catchy little UK band. Pesin sisters, what do you think?

Doves, Kingdom of Rust
Wonder if this is in reference to the four-year span between full-length albums?

The Felice Brothers, Yonder Is The Clock
If you like a little twang with your indie rock…

Lady Sovereign, Jigsaw
The self proclaimed “big midget” leaves the land of major record labels behind and drops new album on her own Midget Records.

The Tragically Hip, We Are The Same
In Canada–where The Tracially Hip are national treasures–people are probably taking off work today to celebrate the band’s latest release.

Gliss, Devotion Implosion
If you dig that fuzzed-out, murky, reverb-drenched kind of indie-rock.

Crystal Antlers, Tentacles
Former chimney-sweeps channel their inner 60’s rocker.

Vs. Children, Casiotone For The Painfully Alone
Best album title of the week.

Eulogies, Here Anonymous
Classify under “cereb-rock.”

Mims, Guilt
This is the album where we find out if Mims is more than just “hot.”

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.

It’s the final countdown to Christmas and thanks to IFC’s movie marathon all Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, you can revel in classic ’80s films AND find inspiration for your last-minute gifts. Here are our recommendations, if you need a head start:

Musical Instrument

Great analog entertainment substitute when you refuse to give your kid the Nintendo Switch they’ve been drooling over.

Breakfast In Bed

Any significant other or child would appreciate these Uncle Buck-approved flapjacks. Just make sure you’re not stuck on clean up duty.

Cocktail Supplies

You’ll need them to get through the holidays.

Dance Lessons

So you can learn to shake-shake-shake (unless you know ghosts willing to lend a hand).

Comfy Clothes

With all the holiday meals, there may be some…embigenning.



Get even more great inspiration all Christmas Eve and Day on IFC, and remember…
