Seriously, why aren’t you at the record store?

Yesterday marked one of the better new music Tuesdays in quite a while. All of these fine records are now available at your local retailer.

The Rosebuds, Birds make good neighbors, Merge records.
Me likey. Check out “Blue Bird” here (mp3; right click, "Save Target As").

Sigur Ros, Takk, Geffen.
The latest from this crazy Icelandic crew leaked a while back (of course) and somehow, Scenestars has been streaming it since early August. Hear it for yourself here (stream).

Devendra Banhart, Cripple Crow, XL.
More on this record here.

The Dandy Warhols, Odditorium or Warlords of Mars, Capitol.
Heard my first cut from this record yesterday on a fine radio program called In House out of Pocatello, ID that I only discovered a couple weeks back. Check it out, it’s on from 4-5 pm, Monday – Friday, but sadly, you have to stream using Real Player, which is always a headache. Give “Down like Disco” a listen here (mp3).

Iron + WineCalexico, In the Reins, Overcoat recordings.
My favorite track is definitely “16, Maybe less” (mp3). What do you think?

Apollo Sunshine, s/t, spinART.
Second full-length from these Massholes. Several mp3s and streams are available here.

The Like, Are you thinking what I’m thinking?, Geffen.
Not completely sold on these ladies yet, but you can check 'em out live from yesterday’s KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic podcast, something you should probably already be subscribing to anyway.

Four days and counting for DMo's SLC departure.

I was lucky enough to be invited to a secret Iron & Wine (Sam solo) show at NYU last week. It was unbelievable. All those little trustfund brats were transfixed.

And yeah, that one's my favorite too.

Speaking of MP3s, here is a mash-up of Sufjan Stevens and Kanye West, if you're into that sort of thing: Zombies Walk.
