Throwback Thursday: The Raveonettes

Oddly enough, I actually decided on Monday that The Raveonettes would be the subject of this week’s Throwback Thursday. I’d like to say I knew there were about to surprise drop a new album and make my decision as relevant as possible, but I didn’t.  I’ll just have to chalk it up to Sune Rose [...]

The Impression: Luc Besson gives Scarlett Johansson the [...]

Spoon

Just in case you missed it yesterday because you were actually working or whatever, Spoon delivered a couple of gifts.  First there was a snazzy video for the eternally catchy Do You, and then they set free a new song called Inside Out.  Now, I think the “kidpocolyptic” video is neat, but I’m especially excited [...]

Quickdraw: Courtney Barnett, The Rosebuds, Rubblebucket, Francisco The Man, Jenny Hval & Susanna

Music!  Enjoy. :Courtney Barnett – Pickles From The Jar:  I want as much Courtney Barnett as I can get, so I love that between recording a new album and touring she’s also running Milk!

Throwback Thursday: Rilo Kiley

A couple of days ago a bit of Jenny Lewis solo stuff made an appearance here at SOTO, and that pretty much guaranteed that the subject of  this week’s Throwback Thursday would be Rilo Kiley.  For some of you, I imagine that it might be difficult to pick a favorite LP (they’re all stellar except [...]

Quickdraw: Roses, Literature, Half Japanese, Perfume Genius, Whirr

Music!  Enjoy. :Roses – It’s Over:  Abe Vigoda is something that is no more, but at least you can still get music from one of their former members, Juan Velazquez, who is the main brain in Roses.  I’m really liking the slightly new wave, but mostly 90s pop vibe that this track is packing.  The [...]
