[new]: Night Moves – Country Queen

By Will Oliver, August 24th 2012

Night Moves are set to release their debut album Colored Emotions, on October 9 via Domino Records.

Their song “Headlights” placed on my list of the best songs of 2012 (so far), and new song “Country Queen” ain’t too far off. It’s definitely got elements of country mixed in with a gritty glam-rock undertone in the same vein of Smith Westerns. It’s good stuff.

Take a listen below.

The band are playing in NY on October 12 at Glasslands with Lord Huron. Find tickets here.

Night Moves – Headlights

By Will Oliver, March 14th 2012 — with 1 comment

Minneapolis trio Night Moves are releasing “Headlights” as their debut 7″ single release with Domino Records. Their sound is one that can be both called funky and sexy. It has this not too shy glam-style to it that I’m really digging. Hopefully we get more stuff from these guys soon. This is addictive stuff, to put it lightly.

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

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:
