Tunesday: Vast Space by Gulp

The first of what I hope to be many breezy summer albums for 2014, Season Sun is the debut LP from Gulp, the sunny side up project of Super Furry Animals bassist Guto Pryce and wife Lindsey Leven. “Vast Space” is a danceable track that gets you moving you yet is about as far removed…

Tunesday: Slow Motion by Phox

“Slow Motion” off of the album Phox from the Baraboo, Wisconsin-based sextet of the same name gets my head nodding selection for Tunesday this week. Of course, the first thing you might ask is, “where the heck is Baraboo?” Well, here you go…. Perhaps there is something in the water up there in Wisconsin, or maybe it’s…

Tunesday: Hotel by The Antlers

I’m going to stay quiet on this one so you can listen as immersively as you can. Today sees the release of The Antlers‘ Familiars and this week’s Tunesday pick “Hotel” is an early favorite for me as I think it will be for you too. Peter Silberman, chief songster of the group, continues to channel…

Either way, if one were to find themselves stuck…

Tunesday: Alexandra by Hamilton Leithauser

Hamilton Leithauser, frontman of the Walkmen, releases his first solo effort Black Hours this week and it’s not unexpectedly, an excellent debut. While “Alexandra,” my Tunesday choice cut this week, may seem very much cut from the same Walkmen cloth, it has its fun surprises. Hamilton talks often about his desire to do something different, have…

Tunesday: Do It Again by Robyn & Röyksopp

Robyn and Röyksopp come together again to give us a too quick glimpse into their world of northern light soaked and melancholy tinged techno. Do it Again sparkles with earnest anticipation; the Swedish solo artist Robyn and the Norwegian duo Röyksopp unite as a trio that we all wish would give us more than just five songs this time around….
