Ear (& Eye) Candy

There have been some great album releases in the first two months of 2012.  My favorite things so far:

-      Miniature Tigers “Mia Pharaoh”

(Well, this comes out next week…but I’ve been listening to it nonstop on their website.)

Melodic pop at its best…

Check out the video for “Female Doctor” – at first, you’ll think you’re listening to a sample of Van Halen’s “I’ll Wait” …sublime…

-      Ben Kweller  “Go Fly a Kite”

Kweller by numbers = hooks galore

-      Phenomenal Handclap Band “Form & Control”

Free Your Mind...And Your Ass Will Follow

-      Islands “A Sleep & A Forgetting”

A beautiful break-up album, file next to Beulah’s “Yoko”

-      Of Montreal “Paralytic Stalks”

You’re going to need headphones for these teenage symphonies to God
