One word: Sick. This album came totally out of the blue for me. While reading through some of my favorite music blogs I came across a review for Yeasayer's new album 'Odd Blood'. If you've never heard of them before, don't feel bad. I hadn't either. They're from Brooklyn and, as rumor has it, cut from the same musical cloth as Animal Collective, Islands and Grizzly Bear. I suppose I can see the temptation to throw them in that indie box. The band Yeasayer reminds me most of is Bronski Beat. Remember them? If not, then download 'Smalltown Boy'. Imagine Bronski Beat remixed by Islands and MGMT and you get Yeasayer. They are pretty original sounding, however. Listen to the album with headphones on and be transported back to the 80's: Indie rock style. So many cool sounds, gorgeous harmonizing and interesting lyrical themes. This is the rare band that, with a few listens, can satisfy lovers of indie rock, the 80's, pop music and alternative rock. Highly recommended.

Finally! The remixes are here! Check out the sick remix for Angélo's 1st single 'Time Bomb'. Coming to a club near you and available for purchase in the coming weeks!
So, as usual, I've been spending much of my time lately checking out new music..Here's a list of some albums worth checking out:
- Yeasayer 'Odd Blood': Band from Brooklyn for fans of MGMT, Bronski Beat, Animal Collective and Grizzly Bear
- KD Lang 'Recollection': Best of collection from one my favorite voices of all-time
- Groove Armada 'Black Light': Not their best but still pretty hot. For fans of Basement Jaxx
- Massive Attack 'Heligoland': Possibly their best album to date start to finish
- Chew Lips 'Unicorn': For fans of New Young Pony Club and new wave
I'm told that the video for Lovesick by Lindstrom and Christabelle is made up of scenes from True Blood. I don't watch that show but I love this song. Lindstrom is a Norwegian DJ and Christabelle is a vocalist. Loving this album. Most of the album reminds me musically of Michael Jackson and italo disco. This song doesn't remind me of either..but it's hot.
Out of all the videos Samantha Bee has done on The Daily Show, this one might be the funniest. I can't stop laughing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
