[watch] Acid House Kings//Would You Say Stop?

The latest from Sweden’s Acid House Kings, Music Sounds Better With You, is just a few days away (out 3/22, pre-order here) and other than the latest from The Go! Team (Rolling Blackouts, out now) and the upcoming release from The Antlers (Burst Apart, out 5/10), this is one of the 2011 releases i’m most excited about.

Since way back in 1991, Acid House Kings have been creating some of the best indie pop and Music Sounds Better With You will not disappoint.  The Hype Machine had the entire album available to stream a couple of weeks ago and I pretty much listened to just that for the entire week.  The video featured below is for the track, Would You Say Stop? — a track that’s pure pop bliss…and just happens to be available for free download courtesy of labrador records.


[anticipation] The Antlers//Burst Apart

The Antlers are all set to follow up one of 2009’s best albums, Hospice, and I am super excited!

I’ve been a fan of these Brooklyn indie rockers for quite awhile now, but after listening to Hospice, they became a real favorite of mine.  NPR describes it best, “Frontman Peter Silberman is only 23, but has produced one of the most beautiful and moving works I’ve heard in a long, long time.  Just astonishing.”  If you’ve haven’t listened to Hospice uninterrupted and in it’s entirety…I pity you.

The new album, Burst Apart, won’t be released until May 10 (via Frenchkiss), but on March 17th, they’ll perform at NPR’s SXSW Showcase at the Parish and the performance will be broadcast live as part NPR’s First Listen series.

Stay tuned.
