damon albarn : heavy seas of love ft. brian eno (stream)

no disrespect because i mean this as a compliment and because i've really enjoyed every track i've heard so far, but this is most definitely going to be a record sold at starbucks.

mac demarco : salad days (album stream)

listen to the whole wacky thing over at npr.

the black keys : fever (stream)

from the band's followup to the very commercially successful el camino. produced by danger mouse, who produced the band's fifth lp, attack and release, which everyone seemed to hate but is still my favorite black keys album.

the orwells : let it burn (video)

rec'd if you like the idea of jim morrison fronting a garage rock band in the suburbs of chicago.

the black keys. turn blue. 5.13.13.

lewis : i thought the world of you (stream)

not much is known about the enigmatic canadian artist lewis (not his real name) aside from the fact that he released a gorgeous record of achingly soft synth-laced ballads called l'amour around 1983. record label light in the attic will be re-issuing the album digitally on april 8 and on limited vinyl on june 24. do yourself a real favor and take a listen.
