[new]: Lower Dens – Brains

By Will Oliver, January 17th 2012 — with 1 comment

Baltimore’s Lower Dens have released a killer new song called “Brains”. Heavy on the layers of instrumentation, the song just builds and builds as dramatically as one could hope. The guitar fuzz rises and echos, stimulating memories of your own past that you thought were lodged deep within your brain.

“Brains” will be on their new album Nootropics, which is out May 1 via Ribbon Music.

There was no way I could pass up seeing The Gene Clark No Other tour when it came to Brooklyn. First of all No Other is truly a great record, one that often gets forgotten. Secondly, members of some of my favorite bands were getting together to put it on. Where else would you get to see members of Fleet Foxes, Beach House, Grizzly Bear and The Walkmen on the same stage?

We All Want Someone To Shout For’s Best Songs Of 2012

Yesterday I blessed you with my favorite albums from 2012, and now, here are my favorite songs from 2012. It’s always tough to narrow songs down to a list, even if the list is 100 songs long. A lot of great new music comes out at a rapid-fire basis these days, from the biggest artists, to the smallest.

When it came down to it, these were the songs that kept the best company of the last 12 months.

As always thanks to Camilo for the artwork. You can stream the songs themselves, or listen to one giant spotify stream right here.

I present to you:

We All Want Someone To Shout For’s Best Songs Of 2012…So Far

By Will Oliver, August 22nd 2012 — with 6 comments

Shit, it’s the middle of August already? Did I really wait this long to make my best songs of the middle of the year list? Yep, Will Oliver at his finest hour.

Ah whatever. No matter how late this list is, I still fell obliged to share what I found to be the best songs of 2012 at the middle (or 3/4) point of 2012. This year saw a lot of great stuff from a lot of my favorite bands, as well as a lot of young, new, talent. I am so impressed by this group of songs, that I couldn’t even keep to my limit of 50 like I originally planned. Remember, this is just my preliminary list. Things can and will change come December.

I got mp3 downloads of some songs, and links of streams to others on each individual track. I also got a spotify playlist where you can actually stream the entire thing. Find that here. Not a bad deal.

Thanks to my good friend Riley for allowing me to use her awesome photo, which Camilo edited to allow the addition of some text.

So take a break from your work, stream the playlist from your phone while your at the beach, and allow me to soundtrack your move in to your college dorm. Here are my favorite songs of 2012, as of right now:

Pitchfork Music Festival 2012: Round-Up

By Will Oliver, July 19th 2012

Now that I’m covering more festivals, I think it’s time that I do a round up that puts a nice end cap on everything. This year was my first time going to Chicago, and the Pitchfork Music Festival. I loved every part of both.

The festival was on the smaller side, which was rather refreshing. I was able to run back and forth from stage to stage, catching at least a good part of every act. Met lots of great people, and ate some good food.

For me, my favorite sets of the weekend in order would have to be Hot Chip, Vampire Weekend, Chromatics @ Lincoln Hall, outside of festival grounds), Dirty Projectors, Sleigh Bells, Beach House and Japandroids.

It was hot almost all of the time, and rained pretty hard on and off on the first two days. The festival started around 1 and ended around 9-10 each day, which is pretty ideal.

Overall, I had a great time at the festival and definitely would recommend it to anyone who is considering it. Check out my full coverage of the festival right here or check out my posts via a day by day listing in the scheduled order, below.

Now who am I looking forward to seeing? Well, pretty much everyone. But seriously, here’s a little rundown of the artists I’m putting at top priority come the weekend on July 13-15:
