Eight new Radical tracks for 2011.
I feel kind of ratty due to most of my Radical tracks being “Best New Music” on Pitchfork, but whatever, they’re good tracks.
XXXY – Ordinary Things
—Glitchy electronic tune that builds to it’s peak in a very danceable manner.
Cut Copy – Need You Now
—Slow building song that would probably sound great live
Women – Bullfight
—Possibly the last song put out by the Canadian lo-fi band
James Blake – The Wilhelm Scream
—His debut release is going to be orgasmed over by all indie music websites.
Toro Y Moi – New Beat
—When there is a beat this funky, you can’t argue how much the album cover freaks you out.
Peter, Bjorn and John – Second Chance
—One of the best album covers of this year, no doubt.
Bright Eyes – Haile Selassie
—Oberst brings his A game with this rocker, not about Arizona.
Fleet Foxes – Helplessness Blues
—A very confident return to music that is much needed.
