Good evening everybody! It has been much too long since my last update, but do not fear, I come bearing a basket of aural gifts. SXSW is quickly approaching although I haven’t taken a good look at the schedule or lineup for this year yet. If you’re interested in finding all the free and unofficial shows for the week/weekend visit http://www.showlistaustin.com or http://www.Do512.com. I’m putting away some money to hopefully purchase a field recorder before the festival so we can get some exclusive content for this site. We’ll cross our fingers. Today I would like to share with you two tracks from a Rhode Island group named Javelin. I have honestly been jamming to them for the past week straight. If you enjoy these two tracks I encourage you to grab their 2010 album “No Mas.” It is filled with gems. On to the music!
Pick 1: Javelin – Lindsey Brohan
Pick 2: Javelin – Oh Centra!
Pick 3: Javelin – Dep
**Bonus: Surfer Blood – Swim
Lindsey Brohan brings that disco, Oh Centra brings a silly freshness to the objectification of beautiful women in rap with a touch of Belle & Sebastian, and Dep mixes the vibe of J. Dilla with a spirit akin to the Flaming Lips. Javelin is truly diverse in their art.
Until next time!
