Desire Lines

Desire Lines

by Deerhunter

Here's another fantastic 21st century band signed to 4AD: Deerhunter. If you like indie rock with a dreamy shoegazing-y twist and haven't heard of Deerhunter yet, drop everything and listen to their albums Microcastle and Halcyon Digest NOW.

For Emma

For Emma

by Bon Iver

Let's continue talking about great contemporary releases by my favorite label 4AD. Bon Iver is a folk-rock band from Wisconsin, and this song is from their debut album For Emma, Forever Ago, which was first self-released by the band, and then re-released by 4AD in Europe. I am digging folk rock quite a bit these days (getting older, no doubt), and this song is a great example of what I like about the genre.

Bloodbuzz Ohio

Bloodbuzz Ohio

4AD has always been my favorite record label, housing back in the 80s such legends as Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance and the Pixies. Today, the label continues to find and promote fantastic bands, and I will be showcasing a few in my next several jams. Let's start with a legend-in-the-making: The National.

Yet Again

Yet Again

by Grizzly Bear

Sad, complex, unsettling, gratifying... it's the type of music that defies genres, is hard to describe, and starts to "kick in" only after many listens - all things that make it great.

Me and Lazarus

Me and Lazarus

by Iron & Wine

I have never been much of a folk rock fan, but I've always kept my eye out for Iron and Wine, whose music spans many genres, including more-dear-to-my-heart indie rock. While the album Kiss Each Other Clean received mixed reviews from hardcore fans, it totally blew me off my feet, perhaps exactly because it was a departure from Iron and Wine's traditional style. This song is my favorite, but the entire album is great.

Lovesick Teenagers

Lovesick Teenagers

by Bear in Heaven

Bear in Heaven is one of my favorite newly discovered bands, playing mesmerizing electronica with a sound reminiscent of early New Wave, but with a definitive modern twist. Surprising harmonies, hypnotizing vocals, psychedelic atmospheres - these guys have it all.

Half Light I

Half Light I

by Arcade Fire

Yesterday I saw Arcade Fire live for the first time, and this week's jam is dedicated to this fantastic band, whose live sound is as good, and sometimes even better, than its studio records. A rare phenomenon, indicative of great talent!

Supervitesse

Supervitesse

by Mahogany

This song has an ethereal lightness, yet a bunch of dreamy energy to it. Love the bass riff too. My kind of indie pop!

FM

FM

by Junior Boys

Growing up in the mid 90's, I was a big fan of my Commodore Amiga computer, and the four channel electronic music it was capable of playing, which was so much better than the primitive sound of most other home PCs of the time. While electronic music had been in place for many years prior, the advent of the Amiga encouraged a lot of young wannabe musicians (including myself) to try their hands at composing it without having to invest in expensive equipment. As such, music I heard in on the Amiga, composed by both pros and amateurs, has strongly influenced my future taste for electronic music. The folks at Junior Boys, one of my favorite bands of today, and (in my mind) one of the most underrated musicians of our time, clearly use more advanced equipment (not to mention great vocals) than what the Amiga offered 20 years ago, yet their sound somehow reminds me of that great era of the democratization of electronic music - translated to today's standards.

Sea Talk

Sea Talk

by Zola Jesus

I love Zola Jesus' minimalist-leaning music, her deep voice and the dark gothic atmosphere of her songs.
