[MP3] Ex – “Your Love”

Ex - Your Love

  • Who: Brian Ecklund
  • What: Glitch pop, like Flume, Yalls, Ratatat
  • Where: Wayne, PA + Facebook
  • When: From the upcoming album Your Love’s What I Need.
  • Why: An instrumental song called “Your Love” seems like a strange thing but the more I listen to this jam and the more it puts a smile on my face the more I understand. Whether you love a person, a concert, a meal, or a stiff drink on Friday night, this track should be part of that affair.

[MP3] Kingsfoil – “Grapevine Valentine”

i must say that the secret to love is secrets plus trust

♫ Kingsfoil – Grapevine Valentine

  • Who: Frankie Muniz + Jordan, Tristan, Tim
  • What: Piano indie rock, like Y Luv, The Zolas, Bootstraps
  • Where: York, PA + Facebook
  • When: Buy A Beating Heart Is A Bleeding Heart now.
  • Why: There is nothing worse then an actor trying to do the musician things and soiling our ears with his band’s unlistenable noise. Turns out that Malcom In The Middle’s Frankie Muniz not only forgoes vocals for drums but his band is also super solid. They have also been at it for a while as A Beating Heart Is A Bleeding Heart is their 2nd full LP. Lead single “Grapevine Valentine” is about as deliciously infectious as it gets so if the rest of their tracks are half this good then Music may have just scored a big point.


we’ll never be alone

♫ Edelweiss – Fiasco

Get limber! Stretch it out! I am not taking any responsibilty for the muscles pulled while trying to dance to Edelweiss’ highly infectious and limb possessing EP Pre-Colombians. You remember these teenage Pennsylvanian wunder-rockers from “(No)” back in January and now they have dropped a full EP that flexes their sound in pleasant ways. As you can hear on “Fiasco,” their signature spazz outs are still there but they also get a little tender on us with the more straightforward instrumental jam “A New Sound From Pennsylvania.” Any way you slice it, the fact that these guys are still under 18 means that nothing but good things lie ahead for them. And us, really.
