I dug this post out of my file of half-written drafts, so consider this the Song of the Week (delayed). of Montreal is one of those bands like I’m From Barcelona and Eddie from Ohio that lie about where they’re from as they’re actually from Athens, GA. “Triumph of Disintegration” is reminiscent of 60′s psychedelia with a little britpop mixed in. I learned about it via Said the Gramophone.
You can listen to “Triumph of Disintegration” and the rest of of Montreal’s Lousy with Syvianbriar below
What new music are you listening to now, or even 6 weeks ago?
Marissa Nadler is a singer-songwriter from Boston, but I’d not heard of her before now. In fact, “Dying Breed” is not a new song, but one she released back in 2007. Luckily, German DJ Stefan Biniak is more up to date on Boston artists and has added the perfect groove to her vocals in this remix.
What musical discoveries have you made recently? Let me know in the comments.
Valerie June is another artist I learned about through NPR music and I’ll have to look into finding out more about her. She has a distinctive sound blending rock, country, blues, and hip-hop as you can hear on “You Can’t Be Told.”
Let me know in the comments what new music you’ve been listening to this week.
I’m pretty much lifting this song of the week post from The Man With the Lightbulb Head. Radkey are three teenage brothers from St. Joseph, Missouri who like punk rock and play it well. ”Start Freaking Out” leads off their recent E.P. release, Devil Fruit.
I’m always open to suggestions, so write down your favorite new tracks below.
Hip-hop emcee Shad of London, Ontario was born in Kenya of Rwandan heritage. In “Fam Jam (Fe Sum Immigrins),” Shad pays tribute to his family and immigrant heritage. Even if it’s from Canada, this track seems appropriate for Thanksgiving weekend.
What are you listening to this week? Let me know in the comments!
In my pseudo-hipster way, I tend to post songs by Icelandic bands and by bands with an afrobeat sound, so why not do both? Samúel Jón Samúelsson Big Band is from Iceland and they do play an African jazz/funk fusion style as you can hear on this track ”Ethiópían”
What are you listening to this week? Post it in the comments and perhaps it will be my Song of the Week next week.

“Each election now becomes a moment of life-or-death urgency that precludes dissent or even reflection. For liberals, there is only one option in an election year, and that is to elect, at whatever cost, whichever Democrat is running. This modus operandi has tethered what remains of the left to a Democratic Party that has long since renounced its commitment […]
