i could never really get into dr. dog aside from their original-surpassing cover of architecture in helsinki's "heart it races". this is the closest they've come to catching the breezy looseness of that version.
moonface is the solo moniker of spencer krug, who is the yelpier vocal half of the now defunct band wolf parade (he's also frontman of sunset rubdown, though i'm not sure what that band's status is). his new album, julia with blue jeans on (awesome name, btw), is supposed to be just spencer, vocals and piano, which, judging by this song, is a really good idea.

i was out and about in the american southwest this past week, so i probably missed some pretty tastey nugs of music news. one of which is that (brown bear all-time top five bands) the walkmen's lead singer hamilton leithauser is working on a solo album with some pretty big guns. definitely excited about this one.

the strongest of the five tracks on bloc party's nextwave sessions ep, possibly their last album ever. this is bp in slow jam mode (think "real talk", "biko", "signs", "ion square"), which seems to be, song for song, their most successful mode over the last two albums.

sylvan esso is the new project of mountain man's amelia meath and megafaun's nick sanborn (mountain man's debut is one of my favorite folk albums of all time). but this isn't really folky at all. this is pretty synthy. borderline dancey. but still very good.

glasser released one of my favorite albums in awhile, ring, back in 2010. not much has been heard from her since, but this tweet leads me to believe a new album is imminent. pretty pumped to see what she's got up her sleeve. (side note: delorean and king krule albums are also something to be excited about, especially the latter, but we knew about both of those already)
NYC: if you wanna hear new albums by @DELOREANDANZ #kingkrule and @GLASSER_ way early come to @WytheHotel Thursday: http://t.co/ZmCBg0iGtM

photographer Lassi Rautiainen recently captured the profound partnership between a she-wolf and a brown bear in the wilds of northern finland. for days, he witnessed the strange pair meet every evening to share food after a hard day of hunting. no one knows when or how this relationship was formed, “but it is certain that by now each of them needs the other."
