We’re just two full months into the year but there’s already been a surprising amount of good music to have been released.
Here are some things I’m enjoying at the moment:
Kaputt from Destroyer (thanks Jon for the recommendation):
Secretary Song from Go! Team:
Youth Knows No Pain from Lykke Li:
Thrones by Dears:
The Last Living Rose by PJ Harvey:
Need You Now by Cut Copy:
Seafarer by Tennis:
Civilian by Wye Oak:
I was going to included Ocean by Asobi Seksu, Still Sound by Toro y Moi and Howlin’ For You by Black Keys (yes, I know their album came out last year, but this video just came out and is really worth watching, plus I’ve just recently really gotten into the album), but their labels think that the best way to market their music is by not allowing Youtube to share their content, so fuck ’em.
