Kevin Drew+Gang Gang Dance+Soviet+Ward
If you haven’t picked up this Kevin Drew record, it’s a must have in my book, great to put on if you have friends over and you ran out of Junior Boys or Kings Of Convenience to play and you played out your old Broken Social Scene CD. Its got alil more rock but its the perfect amount.
This Gang Gang Dance track is pretty gnarly, its one of more beautiful art rock tracks out there that doesn’t neglect the audience and it’s really inviting if you can take on the intense parts.
This track doesn’t make any sense among the others but it’s a nice follow up to Scott’s post the other day. I saw Soviet on tour maybe 5 years ago with about 8 people total at the show and i thought they we’re super entertaining and had this unique look that wasn’t all too 80’s or neon hipster sh*t show like half the crap thats flying around right now.
I don’t know much about M. Ward, one thing i noticed was it reminded me of a cleaned up version of Bibio.

Hey Jakub –
Totally off subject but I have a mission for you:
See if you can find the song by Azukx called Templeboy somewhere here on the interwebs. If you’ve watched any of the Olympics and have seen the Audi commercial… you’d know it. Sounds similar to Sigur Ros. But apparently the only place you can get it is from the actually UK record label.
If you don’t know the commercial, check out the A4 commercial:

Definitely wasn’t ripping on Junior Boys or KoC, actually brought up both because their my favorite records to put on when friends come over

Matt Ward is a very talented songwriter, check out Chinese Translation if you haven’t heard that one yet (sometimes I tear up when I listen to it) — http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToEPFDIzhNA I always kind of thought of M. Ward in the same vein as country/folk-influenced indie like Iron & Wine and maybe Sufjan Stevens, some of his songs aren’t really my bag, but others are incredible– poignant and filled with talent.

hahaha no Jakub I wasn’t implying that I assumed you were ripping on them, I was just stating a fact, they rule, and I am stoked that you like them too. You have great taste in a wide variety of genres. I am proud.
