On Repeat - 6/1/2011

MP3: White Denim - Street Joy

Whenever I hear this band's name I think about the crisp, fresh-to-death bleach-y white pair of jeans I owned when I was in the 5th grade. Similarly, White Denim's "Street Joy" is a bit of a throwback. Psychedelic guitars are the background to frontman James Petralli's gentle yet raspy Southern drawl. D, the band's fifth album, dropped last week.

UK buzzies The Vaccines finally released their debut What Did You Expect from The Vaccines? stateside yesterday. Usually categorized by fast-paced and short-in-length songs like previously released favorites "Wreckin' Bar (Ra Ra Ra)" and "If You Wanna", the filler songs on this album are much slower and less spastic, complete with warm background vocals and more sophisticated lyrics. Still, The Vaccines manage to remain consistent in writing simple songs that are fun to sing along to and require no embellishment to achieve listener satisfaction. "Wetsuit" displays this new experience of The Vaccines' sound. Also be sure to check out "Family Friend." Heartbreaking song (in that good kind of way).

So yeah, I guess you could say we like Savoir Adore. You can grab newest song "Sparrow" from Neon Gold. Usually it's Deidre's voice that gives us chills, but Paul is the one who stands out on this track. So great to hear new stuff from them.
MP3: Foster The People - Call It What You Want

Yes, I am aware that Foster The People are totally a guilty pleasure band. My affection for them is completely due to the tall drink of water that is their bass player and the fact that it's impossible to get "Pumped Up Kicks" out of your head for about 3 days after hearing the chorus. Unfortunately, new album Torches does not live up to the expectations set with their Foster The People EP. "Call It What You Want" is basically the only think salvageable from this record. If you already have the EP, you can forget the rest.

Another guilty pleasure. She's never been before, but seriously I can't stop playing Britney Spears' new tune "Till The World Ends." I hope you guys are still my friends.
