José González – “Step Out” ft St. Vincent

Walter Mitty

If you have seen the trailer for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty then you will definitely remember some of the visuals… and hopefully this song as well. The film is going to be a pretty epic chunk of eye candy but I have a feeling that the soundtrack by the immensely talented Swede José González will be the real show stealer. Just listening to this track makes sitting at my desk feel as epic as Ben Stiller’s on screen adventures. Typing this feels like an extreme sport. Its an amazing experience, this song. I cant wait for the whole package.

Godwolf

[EP] Godwolf – GODWOLF EP (w/ “Another Me” & “Crosses” Jose Gonzalez cover)

you can’t break what you can’t see, you cant’s take what’s yours to keep, you can’t steal it if its free

♫ Godwolf – Another Me

  • Who: Joe Kosky & Tom Armstrong
  • What: Indie electro variety pack, like Gemini Club, Is TropicalKitten Berry Crunch
  • Where: Melbourne, Australia + Facebook / Soundcloud / Amazon
  • When: Their debut EP is out now for free.
  • Why: I can’t place what 90’s alternative rock jam “Another Me” kicks off like but it doesn’t really matter because things quickly diverge into a swirl of beats and grooves that set this track in the now. That kind of twist on your expectations is all over Godwolf’s debut EP as they spin from electro tenderness like “Another Me” to harsher rhythms like “Reaching For The Dark” to screechy bangers lie “Dead Weight” or even some dubstep dabbling on their stellar cover of “Crosses.”

These two Australians are clearly wielding some sharp talent and I’m looking forward to more tight jams. Grab the other 4 tracks on the EP free from their Soundcloud..

How-dilly, ho-dilly, neighbors! I’m currently cooking up all kinds of excitement behind the scenes here at TBE so I’m not gonna stick around and chat. You know the deal, these are the jams that are more ‘newsworthy’ then ‘noteworthy’ so that you can stay up to speed on all the latest music hitting the web without reading as many damn blogs as I do. To cleanse the palette I’ve got a bundle of covers to close things out. Enjoy!

For more jams or by any of these artists use the ‘tags’ links at the bottom of the post!

Blur – Fool’s Day / Record Store Day is an annual thing and it happened not too long ago. Blur released their first new track in forever and this is it. It’s a good little jam but I imagine that If I had ever loved Blur then I would be into this more. Read more
