On Repeat - 5/25/2011

MP3: Low - Especially Me

Are you guys sick of this weather yet? Seems like NYC isn't as keen as the rest of us to start off the summer. "Especially Me" by slowcore greats Low has been occupying space on my iPod as the perfect accompaniment to melancholy walks through the city in abnormally gray May weather.

Sub Pop has a wayyy excellent Summer Sampler available for free download through the iTunes Facebook app. That's where I ganked this track among other beauts from Fleet Foxes, Chad VanGaalen, Mogwai and more of the label's stellar artists.

"Fast Enough" by Brooklyn dance pop outfit Infernal Devices has been making me smile ever since I learned about them through new music discovery site groopEase (pretty cool, worth checking out). The sound is a bit Depeche Mode meets Billy Idol, so that can't be a bad thing right? Also, check out their new artist profile up on Blaqbook, the blog of my good friend Justin.

Austin indie rock veterans Okkervil River have released a hell of an album with this month's I Am Very Far. First single "Wake And Be Fine" is a true rock tune that sounds like it could have come out of the 1980s.
