blood fills the nose, poor hand strikes out back and forth

♫ Princeton – Andre

  • Who: 4 guys who grew up a couple miles from me.
  • What: Sunny indie pop, like Kisses, Tanlines, Vampire Weekend.
  • Where: Santa Monica, CA + Facebook / Soundcloud / Amazon
  • When: The Remembrance of Things to Come LP is out now & the title track is also free here.
  • Why: Named not after the University, but after the street that’s named after the University, LA’s Princeton have been floating around my radar for a few years now. Since they are from my hood and deal in the kind of vibes I like to be dealt, I wanted to be a fan. And now, with “Andre,” I am. The methodically plodding xylophone, lightly fuzzed guitar, and high drama strings, blend into a track that is as intoxicating as it is appropriate for a Wes Anderson montage sequence. Speaking of which, who else is pumped for Moonrise Kingdom!?

Brandon is obsessed with popcorn, sandwiches, and new music.

     Thumbs up for The Burning Ear. This (and the next track – Reptar’s Orifice Origami) are amazing – thanks for setting my ears alight

    Yeah. must be that sea air on the lungs. Or something…

  • An

    Intelligence pop. I’d kind of put them in the same vein as Ra Ra Riot. So good.
