Moon King

Wow, I miss the Toronto music scene. Daniel Woodhead (not Benjamin…) and Maddy Wilde (together they are aka Moon King) bring another bad-ass tune into existence, going harder into some weird corner of shoegaze (Sunny Sundae Smile-era My Blood Valentine, perhaps) and the results are phenomenal. Fuck. (via Pitchfork)

Lovelier Other

Sorry, rippin another from P4k, but this one really impressed me – minimal, whispery dream-pop(?) and their early Beach House makes sense. Lovelier Other. When you see this dude, send me the secret EP you’ve got in the works.

Shit guys. Sometimes it’s like tempting to let this blog die but nay, I’ve worked too hard and this music must be shared, even if all I want to do when I get back from the army is watch Girls (why is this show not, like, daily?). Trying to keep up with the music world by reading the Pitchfork reviews, hitting up the forkcast, going through my emails, and listening to my favourite blogs’ posted mp3s on Hype Machine. Stumbled on these guys Shellshag on the Forkcast and they’re awesome, 90s-style lo-fi husband-wifey shit. Apparently they’re in their 40s and have been doing this shit for a while.

They got the tunezes. That’s all that’s important. New album drops in April.

Some very sweet indie-pop from first rate Toronto people’s Jon Lawless & Mary Cassidy.

If you’re wondering why I’ve been sucking at posting lately, it’s because the army schedule is not one conducive to an indie rock blogger. Also shuttling back and forth across the country and staying in different homes all the time makes shit even more hectic – and yet I shall persist to the greatest extent to blog! So here’s more Israeli indie-rock via Tel Aviv punk-rockers HAXXAN!

It seems as though slowly people here are starting to catch on that there’s a (perhaps?) cool blog pushing good Israeli shit, which is great cuz now it’s finally coming out of the shadows and revealing itself to me. If you’re in a legit Israeli rock band – follow suite.
