Tame Impala - Lucidity

Wow! Whoever made this video must be high (no pun intended). Launching a video camera to space with a weather balloon is most definitely an awesome way to start a jam. Tame Impala just released their debut album, Innerspeaker, last May with a very consistent 60's psych rock sound: head bangin' beats, phaser guitars, and conveniently relaxed vocals. Here's a few other tastes from the album and off the album...

Local Natives - Wide Eyes

I can't decide whether this video is cute or just plain creepy; but the song's great nonetheless and so is the rest of their harmony-obsessing debut album, Gorilla Manor, which was released earlier this year.

White Denim - Last Day of Summer

White Denim can somehow make really catchy songs and overdriven instrumentals all in one album... and then give it away for free! Download the entire album here.

The Morning Benders - Virgins

Beautiful new song from the Morning Benders exclusively on La Blogotheque

Tennis @Daytrotter

Head over to Daytrotter to hear some sweet live tunes from the sailing couple that is Tennis. Cape Dory is just ear candy. Also...

mp3: Tennis: South Carolina
mp3: Tennis: Marathon

Magic Kids - Candy

Deerhunter - Helicopter

Standout rippling track from Deerhunter's latest (and greatest?) album Halcyon Digest. Definitely a favorite at the moment.
