Pixies: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert
3 song live set from Pixies with new member Paz Lenchantin on violin.
Prior to the rolling of cameras, the band warmed up the crowd with “Where Is My Mind,” but this three-song set features a 2014 tune called “Greens and Blues,” a song yet to make it onto a Pixies release called “Silver Snail,” and 1989’s “Monkey Gone to Heaven,” which melted hearts and seared minds with a new memory from a time long past.

Tears & Marbles - What is Love
yvynyl: Not gonna lie, I never thought I’d see the day that I’d post any version of this fucking song. This wildly-popular, over-played, ultra-cheese, Euro dance one-hit wonder 1993’s megahit from Haddaway may have finally reached the “good kind of irony” to give it a play.

Wolf People - “Fain” album mini-mix
Teaser of the new Wolf People album “Fain”, released 29 April 2013 on Jagjaguwar.
Throughout Fain - the band’s second album - folk melodies meet visceral fuzz-rock, never sounding quite like anyone else specifically, but a unique blend that never coalesced at the time. Led Zeppelin weren’t miles away, but their folk tendencies were more of a detour from the pursuit of swaggering rock & roll stardom. Wolf People take both routes in equal measure, counting influences from the psychedelic Mighty Baby to the delicate tones of Fairport Convention. The Quietus
The Dodos - Confidence
From the upcoming album, Carrier, out in August.
The album was written in a period deeply influenced by the unexpected death of guitarist Christopher Reimer. Embracing a more organic approach to songwriting in Reimer’s wake, the San Francisco natives’ fifth LP release will see a shift in tone and style from previous efforts. Paste Magazine

Ergo Phizmiz - Ophelia
With no default mode of music making, but versed in so many, it would be fair to call Ergo a music conceptualist. But the purposeful construction of his writing and production methods are always in the service, rather than at the expense, of the pure joy of what makes a good song.
Unknown Mortal Orchestra - “No Need for a Leader”
Unknown Mortal Orchestra tears the shit out of “No Need for a Leader” during Boise’s Treefort Fest at the El Korah Shrine.
Feels Like Home #51: Holy Sons - “Bed of Nails II
An intimate Holy Sons performance of “Bed of Nails II” within the collectable confines of Emil Amos’ home studio. The original text accompanying this video has been discarded because the writer got too stoned and high on poppy tea. As a special treat, Emil has also shared the alternate version of this track for stream and download: http://bit.ly/10MFi3X
