Hello, Parquet Courts. Why didn't I see you around when you were around last year? Oh, parties? Yeah, I'm not very good at parties, so that makes sense. Oh, okay. But it is nice for a party, I suppose. Yes, I agree, not only for parties. Oh, really? Pretty rockin. Well, eternal youth to you as well, my friends. Eternal youth.
Trolling the internets with my Forest Gospel rake, I just stumbled across the Talibam! bandcamp page--and happily so. Seems the avant-everything pranksters have been busy transforming contemporary indie touchstones into something decidedly more dissonant. So if you ever wished that My Bloody Valentine's mbv, Frank Ocean's Channel ORANGE, or The Dirty Projector's Swing Lo Magellan sounded more like a Talibam! record, the band's Launch Pad series is for you!

Solo album by Sam of Julia Brown (and formerly Teen Suicide). The album's been released in support of Julia Brown viola player/vocalist, Caroline, to help pay for multiple upcoming surgeries. So, worthy cause, and worthy music also. Lo-fi pop stuff that's reminiscent of the aforementioned bands, if a bit stripped down. K Records throwback kindling.
