Now's the time of year when I start trying to cram in listening to all the stuff I've missed from earlier in the year before I finish my best-of list. Here's one of those that will probably end up on said list.
But some of them will be "start" songs. And some of them will be The National.
Greetings. I am a new DJ. I look forward to spinning some tunes for your enjoyment. Let's get...started.
FTLT (the citizen that alerted the citizenry to the likes of Alabama Shakes and Courtney Barnett long before everyone else figured it out, who also used to be a DJ, contributor, and frequent commenter as well as being known as somewhat of a basketball enthusiast (in the case that anyone is unfamiliar)) causally dropped a mention in a FMD a little bit back. I've learned to listen when the hitman does so.
A collaboration between the lead singer of The Walkmen and one of the main cogs of Vampire Weekend, their album is a whirling plunge through genres, eras, and textures, but all with a distinctly original sound that I hope they explore on another album or two. Anyway, this song has been between lowkey to rock-climber's grip stuck in my head for the past few weeks now.
Enjoy the long weekend, everyone!

New Angel Olsen!
29 Aug 2016
The clever name got my interest, but the music got my attention. Here's one from the new album.
Happy New Year, you guys. Hope it's a good'un.
Here's the new collaboration between Matt Berninger (of the National) and Brent Knopf (of Ramona Falls), doing the title track from their record on Conan. Also, their touring drummer has been Andy Stack of Wye Oak.
I can't play my favorite track off this album, since this is a family website, so instead, here's a stripped-down version of the closing track, "Careless".
I hope we're not all supposed to be putting our 2015 lists in these, cause...mine's not totally ready yet.
Weird music I haven't had a chance to listen to since I'm at work? Sure! Why not?
