wild nothing : paradise (mp3)

80s radio vibes in heavy portions here.

wild nothing :: paradise

the xx : chained (stream)

this album's going to be a doozy.

mumford & sons : i will wait (stream)

first taste of the sophomore album from the uk folk-rockers. more of the same, but i suppose that's sort of what you want with a band like this.

grizzly bear : yet again (stream)

this one blows "sleeping ute" out of the water.

father john misty : only son of the ladiesman (letterman)

father john misty, formerly known as j.tillman, also known as the second drummer for fleet foxes, released his debut under the new moniker not too long ago, but it's taken a bit of time for it to gain some traction with me. this one didn't take long at all, though. and letterman seems pretty psyched about it, too.
