In Case You Missed It: Week in Review

Heat

Quite possibly the only time I’ll ever say this (…with sincerity): I hope you weren’t reading Knox Road this week. It’s been too nice outside, and I wouldn’t blame you – I’d actually think something’s wrong with you. Unless you’re one of our Antarctic readers. (In that case, I don’t mean to make you jealous – keep on reading!) Regardless, the rundown… [image via]

Monday:
Sufjan Stevens: Is he back? Where’s the Montana album?

Tuesday:
Sea Wolf’s “Stanislaus” MP3 plus tour dates with Sara Lov.
Matt Kanelos & The Smooth Maria on NPR!
Justin Vernon’s (Bon Iver) side project, Volcano Choir, releases solidly good “Island, IS”.
New song from California workhorses Port O’Brien.

Wednesday:
The Almighty Defenders: Garage rock gone Gospel (not really). But Jamie’s in love!
There Will Be Fireworks’ post-rock is bloody brilliant. And depressing (not really).
As Tall As Lions’ You Can’t Take It With You drops Tuesday. Lee is impressed. (Really.)
Mustachioed Man covers Passion Pit on a harp all Fantasia style.

Thursday:
Amy Millan covers Death Cab’s “I Will Follow You Into The Dark” for new album.
Legend Les Paul dies at 94.

Friday:
Lee’s metaphysical relationship to Balmorhea’s wonderful All Is Wild, All Is Silent.
Jon’s man-crush = Antony and the Johnsons. And Anima.

Saturday:
Live Anathallo videos always do the trick.

*Pick of the Week*
Chromewaves: “Forgive Me” Ida Maria and Ladyhawke finally head out to Toronto! But for a reason much to Frank’s chagrin…
