Calexico, TV on the Radio, The Lovely Feathers MP3 Previews

Here's a taste of three highly anticipated albums to whet your appetites (oh, GOD, how I wanted to say 'wet your pants!').

Calexico - Garden Ruin - the Tucson based band give fans their poppiest album to date.

+ roka

TV on the Radio - Return to Cookie Mountain - I haven't delved deeply into this one yet, but many, MANY, are already hyping it as an album of the year candidate.

+ blues from down here

The Lovely Feathers - Hind Hind Legs - This eccentric band of Montrealers has nothing in common with the 'name' bands from Montreal, but they surely deserve a much larger audience and this release, a rehash of their best self-issued music and some very strong new songs should open some ears.

+ ooh, you shocked me


  1. The Lovely Feathers were fantastic at Club Deville during their official SXSW showcase. Here's to hoping they get some real traction soon.

  2. Thanks for the Lovely Feathers track! Can't wait for Hind Hind Legs.
