Save September (Crissi Cochrane)

Save September is the solo singer/songwriter project from Crissi Cochrane, a Halifax, Nova Scotia native. If it seems we’ve been featuring more and more Canadians on this blog, well, it’s because we have – their music is stellar (stars), and so much of it is unknown (the two minute […]

New British Sea Power: “Come Wander With Me” [MP3]

British Sea Power revealed the first look at their new album today with “Come Wander With Me.” Oh, btw, by “album” I actually mean a soundtrack to a 1934 documentary about an Irish fishing community called Man of Aran. Sure, ok. The song is actually really cool and creepy, yet uplifting? […]

In Case You Missed It: Week In Review

I really hope you didn’t put any faith into that creepy old guy from the internet. Because he harasses people now (lame). Sexually (GROSS). However, I do hope you love seeing naked wizards get what they deserve, because this was the week for you!! Oh, and Oklahoma is stupid. […]

I hope you’re not reading this

I’m sure every person on the East Coast has twittered, changed their facebook status, and blogged about this crazy (in a good way) heat, but if you are reading this post, you shouldn’t be (and I shouldn’t be writing it, wtf?) Unless it’s to get some music for your iPod to […]
