(31) Days of Good: 12.10.12

Some experimental pop and electro-funk sounds to brighten up your Monday.  First up, this year’s Mercury Prize winners, alt-J, followed by the always impressive and ambitious experimental psych-rock of Animal Collective (back with their ninth studio album).  After that, the energetic indie pop and fusion sounds from the London based quartet, Django Django, along with the infectious party-pop sounds of Anthens, GA, based Reptar.  Last, but certainly not least, the global sounds of dance pop duo, The Very Best, and Brooklyn’s experimental rock trio, Yeasayer.  Enjoy.

(31) Days of Good: Day 28

Today’s GOOD features four acts with very distinct and fascinating sounds.  First up, the rich sound of authenticity that is Bon Iver (arguably the Arcade Fire of 2011).  After that, the sensational sounds of Athens (GA) based groovesters, Reptar (big thanks to Ethel for turning me on to these guys).  Next up, the solo stylings of the very talented Merrill Garbus, aka tUnE-YarDs.  And last but not least, some lo-fi folk from Brooklyn’s Woods.

[on the road] Phantogram
