[on repeat] Phosphorescent//Song for Zula


I know we’re only three days into the new year, but this is my favorite song of 2013 (for now at least).  Had Johnny Cash ever collaborated with Enigma, I imagine it would’ve sounded a bit like this.  “Song for Zula” from the forthcoming album Muchacho, which will be available March 16th on Dead Oceans.


[on the road] The Luyas

Canadian indie rock outfit, The Luyas, are hitting the road this month for a North American and European tour.  They’ll kick things off in Montreal on February 24 and finish things up in London on May 19.  Along the way, they’ll be joined by Ra Ra Riot, Liam Finn, the Dodos, and GIVERS (check dates below to see who plays when).

The Luyas are touring in support of their latest release, Too Beautiful to Work, available now courtesy of Dead Oceans.
