GOOD MORNING LUBBERS! IT’S THURSDAY! SO I HAVEN’T REALLY SLEPT! BECAUSE I’M EXCITED! AND NOW NOT EVEN MY TIREDNESS CAN STOP ME FROM JUMPING UP AND DOWN! I have found some delightful new fresh meat to chomp my musical teeth into! The Antlers and their twisted and whimsical lyrics and indie folkiness have a Fleet Foxes and Neutral Milk Order feel to them: “how can the song be so sad but sound so happy?” Despite the lyrics, great morning music to prep me for my last day of work before HOLIDAYZ. Did I mention that I love you guys?*
*Yep, I’m in one of those moods.  

If you’re in the NY area next weekend, DIPLO’s playing RCRD LBL’s holiday party. It’s December 15th @ 9pm (in case you didn’t read the flyer) and it’s free w/ RSVP. It’s also 21+ only. Sorry, kids.

Check out New Track from Matt's ME&LP album on RCRD LBL

Matthew Embree and Lisa Papineau, two musicians with quite the pedigree between them (Rx Bandits and Big Sir, plus contributions to Air and M83, respectively), have joined forces in the shape of ME & LP. An unexpected pairing with backgrounds that could have landed them anywhere on the map, the surprising result is all the more satisfying. “Bonnie Says (No Shitty Ride)” has a dance groove at its core, maracas and some well-placed plucking creating a nice foil to Embree’s seasoned crooning. Papineau’s part does much the same, offering an airy, playful flair with parallels to Thao & Mirah’s latest at times. And just as with that dream team, ME & LP showcase the mark of a worthy match-up, pushing each other successfully into new terrain. The LP, Chez Raymond, is out August 9 on Sargent House.

in which we discuss yet another cover of willow smith’s timeless dance hall anthem that leaves the original so far in the dust it’s hard to remember it exists at all.

also, i adore this trend of actual artists covering top 40 nonsense. i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again: the best way to undermine a crap song is to validate it completely. mocking something stupid by making something wonderful out of it. i’m so glad i was born in a post-modern world.
