Been digging on “Tell Me (What’s On Your Mind)” from the L.A. record mavens Allah Las’ self titled debut LP. It’s a straight to the point pop-rock gem that hits a psychedelic note. You could get away with telling a new listener that these guys are a band from the 60s. Definitely hearing a Rolling Stones influence.
Nosaj Thing marks his return with “Eclipse/Blue” an ethereal night-time track that features guest vocals from Blonde Redhead’s Kazu Makino. The combination of his beats and her vocals create a feeling of being lost & isolated at sea,Â left only to fumble with your cold breath and your thoughts.
It’s been three years since his debut album Drift, and now it’s time for his new album, Home. It will be released sometime early in 2013 via Innovative Leisure. The album will also see guest work from Toro y Moi. Turntable will release a 10″ vinyl of the single next month. You can pre-order that here.
Thanks Cam for the art. As if you needed a reminder that it was from him.
I’m now a college graduate and have plenty of time to play. Here’s what got me through my final month of school. It’s a good one. You know the deal by now. Stream each track, stream the whole mix on Spotify, or download a ZIP file of all the songs packaged tightly for your listening convenience.

It’s the sixth studio album from the San Francisco-based rapper/producer. It’s the first album that he self-produced. A press release from Rhymesayers says the album “follows in the wake of several deep personal losses and highlights subject matter that deals with the sometimes-futile ways people try to cope with serious issues.”

So I’m finally 21. I turned 21 on September 30th, which explains why this month’s mix is somewhat delayed. The wonderful Camilo Bejarano (the genius behind all these fantastic mixes) and I, decided to have fun with it’s art. Sure me turning 21 doesn’t affect you personally, but it may make this blog a little more interesting. I can now drink at ease, and enter any show that I want without any concern. Not like it stopped me anyway, but you get what I’m trying to say. Who knows maybe I can throw in some drunk(ish) posts for you all.
Anyway, here’s to September which was surely an interesting month. The mix is posted after the jump. You know the deal. Stream each song, or just download the entire thing as a beautiful package with the correct tracklisting, and artwork. And remember to check out Camilo’s work. He deserves it.

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:
Tom Vek hasn’t released an album since his 2005 debut, We Have Sound. He completely disappeared from the spotlight, leaving his fans wanting more. That all changes on June 7th when Vek releases his new album, Leisure Seizure.
After nearly five years of absence Vek has delivered a new single in the form of “A Chore”, a masterfully crafted electronic jam that should have all Vek fans salivating. It sounds like the work of someone who has been carefully preparing a worthy follow up that is bound to reward your patience.
Watch/Listen to the “A Chore” music video:
Chicago Tribune writer Greg Kot just got off the phone with Julian Casablancas. The front man of The Strokes confirmed that The Strokes will be playing Lollapalooza this summer.
He also projected a September release date for their 4th album which is started to wrap up.
Lucky Chi-Town folks. I hope that there is an All Points West this year, or else it looks like I am shit out of luck.

Ok, so maybe Washed Out shouldn’t be called a band. Rather, it is the moniker of the solo project of Georgia native Ernest Greene.
Think of Washed Out’s music as a retro lo-fi electronic chill music. Music that you blast on your laziest day, that Sunday where your room is a mess, your sticking to your chair, and you don’t give a fuck. Washed Out’s debut EP Life Of Leisure is a perfect soundtrack for any lazy moment. The title suites his sound perfectly.
His beats are chill, his vocals are comforting. He uses just enough effects and layers in each song, not to overwhelm the listener like so many new electronic acts do. Washed Out use just enough, allowing the track to grow on it’s own, wrapping its legs around the listeners mind. His sense of melody is beyond dreamy.
The EP is short, but sweet. It is something you want to return to again and again. Accessible and already familiar, even if it is your first listen. The true indication of good music.
The scary part is he has only been at this for a few months!! I can’t wait to see what else he has in store for music!
Here are two stellar tracks from his EP. Makes me think of a summer that I already lost. Sigh!
