This song is good! The album, apparently, not so good. Pitchfork wraps up their review by saying: “still, if they get so excited about the mundane details of travel (‘paaaaaaaaayed the bus faaaaaaaare!’), then maybe touring outside of New York will give them more material as worthy as ‘Hey Now Now’.”
The Cloud Room – Hey Now Now
Fantastic song. There are so many things to like here, but the icing on the cake is that part at the end with the uh-ohs. I love that.
Regina Spektor – On The Radio
That’s a lyric in this cool remix of the Strokes’ Ask Me Anything done by a friend of a friend.
UPDATE 7/1: I was just swinging through, updating links on a Saturday night (like you do), and noticed that they’ve posted a/the video for Poster of a Girl! It’s taking forever to download so you will have to be your own critic.
Teaching the Indie Kids posts a pretty cool Calla track today (yesterday, really): Swagger. I have to say, I’m not such a Calla fan as yet. I saw them open for the French Kicks and they were pretty blah. But it was a late show.
Update: the picture above, which used to be Stryper because I thought that was funny, is back to being Calla.
