We Get Ferocious

One of the most important songs of 2016 finally gets its video, and . . . Thao dances!

New Spoon

During the early to mid 00s, Spoon probably did as much as anybody to rekindle my interest in current music, and now they've announced a new album which is probably exactly what I need to snap me out of this Trumpian depression.

No Atlanta dates announced yet for 2017, but they will be playing the Georgia Theater in Athens on May 3.

Jimmy Mack

Animal Collective were performing their cover of Jimmy Mack during their most recent tour in support of Painting With, and now it appears they're including a studio version of the song on their The Painters EP, which drops, like, tomorrow.

Shaky Knees

2017 Shaky Knees Lineup By Day

It looks like Friday (LCD, Wolf Parade, Car Seat Headrest, Temples, and Preoccupations) is the day to be there, but other than The xx and Mariachi El Bronx, there's not much on Saturday.  

The Shins, Whitney, Warpaint, Pond, and Fruit Bats have Sunday looking good, but LOL Third Eye Blind.

In any event, we already have a ticket for the entire weekend - VIP level at that.

Not My President

The Our First 100 Days project, started last month with an Angel Olsen song, continues and will continue through the first 100 days of the Trainwreck Presidency.  Today's song, Trump Talkin' Nukes by Tim Heidecker, is especially notable and worth your listen.  The widget is updated daily, so if by the time you read this it features some song other than Trump Talkin' Nukes by Tim Heidecker,  then rewind back to Day 21 and give it a listen.

You might find some other good songs in the mix, too.
