The 8th studio record from King Gizzard & co. Playing Sasquatch this weekend. Likely to be the band's breakout record, and easily their most critically acclaimed to date. Described as "a never-ending album" by the band.

Who I Thought You Were
by Santigold
(16 plays) | (0 fans)

Santigold's latest received somewhat mixed reviews from critics, which is too bad. Many collaborators on this record, including Vampire Weekend's Rostam, Dave Sitek & Yeah Yeah Yeah's Nick Zinner.

Eighties (Serious Dance Mix)
by Killing Joke
(4 plays) | (0 fans)

Described by drummer Paul Ferguson as "the sound of the Earth vomiting," which sounds pretty good. Arguably ripped off by Nirvana for "Come As You Are," not to rehash old controversies.

Energy Sucker
by Luscious Jackson
(34 plays) | (0 fans)

From the debut Luscious Jackson LP, out on the Beastie Boys' label Grand Royal. The band took their name from retired basketball player Lucious Jackson. Luscious is a far better name if we're being real here.

Who Needs You
by The Orwells
(21 plays) | (0 fans)

Negativland must've been frustrated when Orwells named their LP Disgraceland. Assuming Negativland aren't lost in the set for the No Other Possibility video, wandering adrift amidst static.

The cover art for this record could be featured in a really nasty museum. Quite cool music though. The band will be playing this year's Capitol Hill Block Party, along with a few other acts worth seeing.

Almost painfully sunny. Don't google "Tennis" expecting the band, unless you also want to see some French Open pics. This track comes from the band's 2012 LP, Young and Old, their sophomore release.

Will be part of KEXP's Hood to Hood Day celebration, taking place in West Seattle this year. The band's debut self-titled record came out back in April. It is available on colored vinyl on their Bandcamp, which is pretty cool.

Off Chuck Prophet's LP The Hurting Business, which came out back in 1999 (17 years ago). Prophet first gained recognition as the frontman of Green on Red, who were around during the mid-80s/early 90s.

Playing The Sunset Tavern on June 11th. The artist describes her music as "gothic country music," which feels about right. Cool vibes on this one. Pitchfork acclaimed. This is her debut LP following an EP.

White Street
by Kristin Kontrol

Kristin Kontrol is the new solo project of Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls. Album is out today on Sub Pop Records. New 80s pop sound for Kristin, compared to the fuzzed-out girl group sound of Dum Dum Girls.
