Fences - Daytrotter Sessions

We posted about Fences a little while ago to give you an introduction to Christopher Mansfield as an artist. Needless to say, we were excited to see that he recently recorded three tracks for the Daytrotter Sessions. While the first two tracks we already know from his self titled album (Buy on Amazon here), the third song, "Marketplace," is one that had not previously been released! He played it live when we saw him at The Middle East in Cambridge, MA and it is another great tune from Mansfield. He doesn't disappoint. Enjoy!

The Wooden Sky - If I Don't Come Home You'll Know I'm Gone

When I stumbled upon The Wooden Sky a few months ago, I was blown away by If I Don't Come Home You'll Know I'm Gone, their latest album but at this point not new. Regardless, it's a tremendous record that very few people seem to be giving the respect it deserves and I wanted to highlight it here for that reason. It falls in the very broad category of alt-country/folk-rock, full of gorgeous melodies and great songwriting. The vocals are consistently stunning throughout all 13 tracks. These Canadians have flown under the radar for too long. This album is altogether stupendous and well worth a listen. I guarantee you will enjoy it.

TV On The Radio - P.O.S. Remix

With TV On The Radio's new album about to drop, tracks and remixes are turning up all over the place. P.O.S., a rapper and producer signed to Rhymesayers has done a remix of the lead single off Nine Types Of Light and it is definitely worth a listen. Check it out!

James Vincent McMorrow - We Don't Eat Remix

We are always very wary when it comes to remixes of soft acoustic ballads. It's something that is rarely done well and very often done horribly. But when James Vincent McMorrow himself recommended this remix done by Adventure Club of his song "We Don't Eat," we had to check it out. This relaxing, dubsteppy remix of a great tune actually does the song justice! Enjoy!
