Fool’s Gold – “Surprise Hotel”

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

Just saw this on Stereogum and I really like it.  It’s just a beautifully shot, fun music video.  Some of it feels a lot like Spike Jonze at his best:

I don’t know much about Fool’s Gold, but they sound like an interesting project…

Dirty Projectors

Monday, April 13th, 2009

Submitted for your approval: yet another rockin’ Brooklyn band: Dirty Projectors.


I first learned about these guys (or this guy, I guess — it’s primarily the brainchild of musician Dave Longstreth) when they performed one of the most kick-ass Bjork covers on Stereogum’s ‘Enjoyed‘ (which you should definitely download now! if you haven’t already — they cover Hyperballad)

Their new single ‘Stillness is the Move‘ which they played at SXSW (to deafening applause, apparently) is really, really good.  If it’s any indication of how their upcoming release, Bitte Orca (5/5), is going to sound I think we’re in for some good stuff.
