aaaannnndddd we’re back.

16 May

Sorry dudes!  We were busy with finals for the past month. So we kinda forgot about our blog.  But we’re now back on track giving you your daily dose of hipster.  Don’t worry, we’ll take it easy at first.  Just listen to this band for now.  They’re called Postiljonen.  They’re from Sweden.  They’re good. 

New M83 – “Oblivion” Soundtrack.

Rather than taking the conventional approach and releasing a follow-up to 2011’s hit LP Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, France’s M83 instead took the unique route (would you expect anything else?) and have been recording the soundtrack to Oblivion.  Oblivion stars Tom Cruise as he is caught on a deserted post-apocalyptic Earth where Morgan Freeman wears menacing sunglasses while he sits in the dark.  But Oblivion aside, M83 thus far still delivers.  The new music is still rooted in the group’s idiosyncratic brand of new wave dream pop, but on a much more “epic” and “Hollywood” scale.  The music is less focused on making a “song” than creating a feeling under which scenes unfold.

Here’s the trailer for Oblivion.  Hits theaters April 12th.

Say Lou Lou – “Julian”

After the music industry has been patiently waiting for Say Lou Lou’s (formerly “Saint Lou Lou”) follow up the hauntingly good “Maybe You,” the twin Swedish sisters have finally released new material entitled “Julian.”  And it was worth the wait.  The single is out May 8th with a full length hopefully in the near future.  After I emailed the band, they informed me that the single will include a B-Side and remixes.  Check it out.
