Band To Watch: Blouse

By Will Oliver, April 21st 2011

I’m going through my inbox and discovering some wonderful stuff. Such as the band Blouse, who were recommended to me by a reader. They’re a three piece from Portland, Oregon who have released a couple of incredible singles.

The first single “Shadow” was released by Sub Pop. It was included on their free Terminal Sales Vol. 4: Please to Enjoy compilation.

The second single is “Into Black” which is the true standout in my mind. It features a catchy guitar riff and a light atmosphere that takes me from the restraints of reality. It almost sounds like Beach House with an extra jolt. It’s a dreamy song that I don’t mind getting lost in for three and a half minutes. The only bad part of the song is that it has to end.

“Into Black” was released on Captured Tracks earlier this year. You can still grab a copy right now.

Take a listen it below, and get lost in their world:

[new]: Dum Dum Girls – Rimbaud Eyes

By Will Oliver, January 13th 2014

Dum Dum Girls

Dum Dum Girls will release new album Too True on January 29th via Sub Pop. Last year they shared with us the album’s lead track “Lost Boys and Girls Club.” 

Today they’ve let go of the album’s super-charged cut “Rimbaud Eyes.” Dee Dee’s vocals create a magical moment over the big new wave instrumentals that all combine for one sweet listen.

The band will be touring this March. They’ll play Bowery Ballroom on March 25 and Music Hall of Williamsburg on March 26. Blouse will support both shows. There’s also a sold out Mercury Lounge show going down January 30.

Enjoy “Rimbaud Eyes” below.

We All Want Someone To Shout For’s Best Songs Of 2011

Thanks to Cam for the artwork.

Here’s the list you all have been waiting for (top albums of the year can be found here). It’s 100 of my favorite songs of the year. The term “best” doesn’t leave much room for objectivity, and favorite sounds a lot more personal. I didn’t have the heart to limit these great songs to a list of just 25-50 because there’s simply too much good stuff out there. You can stream all the tracks individually,and listen to the spotify playlist.

I present to you, my favorite songs of the year 2011:

We All Want Someone To Shout For’s Best Songs Of 2011…So Far

By Will Oliver, August 18th 2011 — with 34 comments

(Thanks to Camilo Bejarano for the perfect album art)

I love making lists. I’m the guy who just needs to compile a list of my favorite songs midway (a month late, I know..) through the year. I did one last summer and had a great time doing it, so I had to do another.

I meant to do this in July but life got in the way of that. We All Want Someone To Shout For turned three years old a few weeks ago, so think of this as a little thank you from me. Rather than just limited the list to only 50 songs, I splurged even more with 70. I just didn’t want to leave any of these songs out because I believe they all deserve some spotlight.

This is by no means final, you never know what my list will look like come December. I offer it to you as a way for you to get close with the songs that I have in 2011. I included a mp3 stream of each, and for a limited time you can download the entire thing as a ZIP file. I know it may be overwhelming to some, but give it a d/l spin some songs, and come back to it later. If you like the music, search the artist and support them by buying their music on itunes, amazon, or going to see a show.

I hope you enjoy listening to these songs as much as I have. Without further ado, I present to you We All Want Someone To Shout For’s Best Songs Of 2011…So Far:
