2007 was a fantastic year for music. I had just moved to Brooklyn, New York from Pittsburgh. Blonde Redhead’s 23 and Interpol’s Our Love to Admire got me through the massive life changes that took place that year as I navigated and found my way through that incredible, insane city.
Interpol’s new release El Pintor and Blonde Redhead’s Barragán evoke similar feelings of excitement, energy and emotional turmoil. From my apt in Los Angeles 7 years later, I am psyched to be listening to new music from them, plus the awesome new track from TV on the Radio! Dear Science came out in 2008 and was also on heavy rotation. Their new song is called Happy Idiot, from their forthcoming album, Seeds, due out Nov 18th. I cannot WAIT to hear it. You can pre-order Seeds here.
I also added two gorgeous tracks released this year from Philip Selway, Radiohead’s drummer. I was listening to a LOT of In Rainbows 7 years ago, and while these aren’t new Radiohead songs, they fit the vibe quite well. I’m really impressed by these, and will definitely be listening to more of his music.
Some new songs from Feist would be perfection right now…
What’s she up to?
