Sit or Spin 4/13/14

Sit or Spin was a hoot last night. We discussed how often each of the panelist spills and what their favorite kind of sword is. Needless to say we had a lot to talk about. Favorite track of the night was a tie between Copeland & From Indian Lakes. Worst track of the night was from The Frolics (sorry yo).

Tycho Concert Review

I can’t think of a better way to welcome in the spring than with a Tycho concert. For an artist whose brand of dreamy electronica combined with a west coast vibe elicits images of sandy beaches and surfing, there really are few acts that can bring in the elated joy the first days of spring evoke. It was an especially lukewarm spring day, a slight breeze coasting by the car as my friend and I headed out towards The Crofoot, sharing e-cigs and jamming out to some downtempo IDM. When we arrived at the parking structure, I caught a glance at a sunset, looking like an exact match of Dive’s album cover in a moment of coincidental beauty. It seemed as if the entirety of Spring was pointing towards a wonderful concert experience.

Parquet Courts – Sunbathing Animal

Parquet Courts have us wondering now with their new song, “Sunbathing Animal.” They first released the song in sheet music format and will be the title track for their new album due in June. In other news, they don’t seem to like being called slackers. Catch them in Detroit 6/7 at the Lager House when they play a show with Detroit punks Tyvek and Protomartyr.
