(31) Days of Good//12.4.15


“The Providence-based, bilingual band Downtown Boys specializes in frenetic saxophone punk. It’s breathtaking breakout single ‘Monstro’ opens with a blistering political tirade performed by front woman Victoria Ruiz. Ruiz shouts and sings with an unfiltered energy we also see in Perfect Pussy’s Meredith Graves. As we see it, punk always needs more saxophones, and we always need more raw, restless voices like Ruiz’s to capture the young and bursting energy of any era.” (via NPR All Songs Considered)

Downtown Boys – Monstro [from Full Communism]




Bright. Cheery. Awesome. Easily one of my favorite pop songs of the year.

Toro y Moi – Empty Nesters [from What For?]



purity ring - another eternity

So happy to have Purity Ring back this year. NZ Herald’s Chris Schulz describes it best, “Passion Pit making out with The xx while Ellie Goulding films things quietly in the corner.”
