The Studio-Yearbook 2

Poor Air France, everytime they try to put something out The Studio come along and do the same thing but better. this is personally one of the most eagerly anticipated releases of the year, mainly because after listening to Yearbook 1 it became pretty apparent that these guys don't make mistakes. Forget 'In This Club', The Studio's cover of The Shout Out Loud's 'Impossible' IS your summer jam.

Brigitte Fontaine et Areski-L'incendie


Todd Rittman and Adma Vida of U.S. Maple have a band called Singer. They're on tour right now, but probably aren't coming anywhere close to you. They just played last night in Portland with Wolf Eyes, and they're pretty much skipping over the middle of the country.. They're pretty amazing though.
