Built to Spill

Built to Spill, an indie rock band from Boise, Idaho, has a new album, Untethered Moon, that is certainly worth checking out. The whole album is solid and fun to listen to.

Built to Spill were one of the most popular indie rock acts of the ’90s, finding the middle ground between postmodern, Pavement-style pop and the loose, spacious jamming of Neil Young.

“Living Zoo” may be the quirkiest new song which is the one below in the video.

Lord Huron, Fool for Love

Lord Huron’s Fool for Love is a great little catchy tune with a fun, entertaining music video and a cool easter egg. The video is a short story of a “The Fool” confronting Lily’s (his lover) other man, “Big Jim.” This is a classic bar brawl scene where the Fool gets everyone in on the action.

The Sour Side Of The Lemonheads (It’s A Shame About Evan)

Let me set this up by saying that I am a big The Lemonheads fan.  I am even a fan of Evan Dando as a solo artist.  I have been a fan since the release of It’s A Shame About Ray, which came out in 1992, and by this time already their fifth album.  It was released during the summer leading into my senior year of high school….Geez, now I am telling my age.  I never had an opportunity to see them live back then, but on the night of March 4, 2012, I would get my chance.
