Of Montreal, Skeletal Lamping (left)
Of Montreal is pretty freakin’ awesome on their own indie budget, but imagine if they had money to throw around–we’d see set-pieces and on-stage costumes that would blow peoples’ minds. Album-wise, Of Montreal make another fun one!
Sebastian Grainger, Sebastian Grainger & The Mountains
I really wanted to hate this, just to justify why Death From Above 1979 shouldn’t have broken up, but I can’t. Well done Sebastian.
The Dears, Missiles
Just in time for CMJ.
Electric Six, Flashy
Dick Valentine once played badminton in my backyard–he was pretty good too!
Tommie Sunshine, Relax This Won’t Hurt
This compilation album will turn any room in your house into a dance club. I know cause it just happened to me.
Roll The Tanks, Suffer City
Don’t know much about this group, but I like what I’ve heard so far. Just indie and mainstream enough to make both groups of people happy.
The 88, Not only…But Also
Escape The Fate, This War Is Ours
Haste The Day, Dreamer
Brett Dennen, Hope For The Hopeless
