You maybe remember City Center from my Top Albums of 2009 list, the project is still going strong with plenty of releases planned like this limited pressing EP on Quite Scientific that really grabbed my ear. The duo is always on the road and really great live, I highly recommend seeing a live show.

Foxes In Fiction has a pure honest sound, it touches on the softness of Atlas Sound yet keeps this youthful honesty that is not as common in music these days. Ativan could be the perfect love song for this day in age, this might be the closest you’ll get to feeling that fuzzy feeling about someone and sharing a soda.

Ariel Pink keeps surprising me with his progession in sound, we went from lo-fi to AM Gold and i’m not gonna complain at all, he does it so well.

Girls In The Eighties has that vocal in lo-fi where I find it harder to share with new listeners but personally appeals to me and it attracts me even more when it has hints of IDM like this song Youth Experiment.

@Scott, the artwork was done by Fred Thomas (1/2 of city center themselves) the art posted is for the digital version. A blue & white version is screened onto the clear vinyl on the physical version.

gooooooood stuff. Foxes In Fiction is new to me and is exciting indeed. I’m looking forward to see where Ariel Pink ends up at the end of this year. This time last year he was still pretty hidden, but over the last couple of months, every month he gains more and more traction.

Hey Jakub, you should put up a song from Tame Impalas new record that’s coming out. Also, Check out The Biz and Fresh Hats, Tight Beats. I think you will enjoy as they are a change of pace from what you usually post on here.
