A of all, get Santogold's album. I've been listening to it for a few weeks now and it's awesome. Idolator marked her more Tegan & Sara dance mix than all the critics marking her M.I.A.'ish. I agree, and add in a splash of ska-girl Gwen. I'm so into it, and have been rocking it on the commute to work for the past month or so. [Buy via Amazon or iTunes!!!!]
Erica has been pumping The Ting Tings. This morning I may or may not have had a slight beat to my step on my way into work while listening to their song, "Great DJ." The drums! The drums! The drums! The drums! They're British fun. And you've probably heard their song that Apple commercial ("shut up and let me go!"). I love fun albums. [Buy via Amazon or iTunes]
Next up, I uploaded Take the Crown's latest, Relapse React. I remember reading through my G-Reader a couple of weeks ago and reading about Take the Crown (and five other bands) being sponsored by Denny's, and I was like, "how do I know that band??" Last summer I'd met the keyboardist Ryan through mah girl Perry when the band came through New York. Rock out stuff. Absolutepunk.net approved! [Buy via Amazon and iTunes]
And, finally, I've been listening to the new My Morning Jacket, Evil Urges, which apparently doesn't come out til next week? Interesting. I'm into it. If you don't listen to MMJ already, you should get into it. They're solid, and I have a feeling I'm going to come to love this album. [Preorder via Amazon and iTunes].
On a related note, I'm sad to report that muxtapes have been blocked at work, so I can no longer enjoy it during my work day! But Rick, Erica, and Keller have all updated their mixes! Check them out! I'll try to update mine soon, lo prometo.
Has anybody also been rocking out to the above? Whatchoo listenin' to?
