John Robert Cardwell

Fresh from its Stereogum premiere, the first mp3 from Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin's Pershing:

The guys sent me the pretty-much-finalized mixes of Pershing a few weeks ago, and they sounded great. Whereas Broom was lovely, languid record, this new one captures more of the pepped-up energy of SSLYBY's live shows, and with a newly-present sunny West Coast pop vibe, to boot. There are some great new songs I'd never heard before, plus new arrangements of some old favorites (besides Glue Girls, there are new versions of Boring Fountain, Modern Mystery, You Could Write A Book...) -- and girls in bedrooms across the land are going to be swooning on repeat to John Robert's ballad, "Some Constellation."

Matt offered up a good review of the new Magnetic Fields, Distortion, (8.0) yesterday. I, too, am definitely liking what I'm hearing from this one; you can stream the whole album over at the Mag Fields Myspace; go check it out for yourself.

Subpop's latest signees are Seattle's Fleet Foxes, who have a very pleasant Band Of Horses-y sort of sound. I smell a blog-hit...

Pre Premature Evaluation: Destroyer - Trouble In Dreams

Destroyer Trouble In Dreams

I haven't even listened to it yet, but if I know me like I know me, I think I can go ahead and say with some certainty that this is one of my favorite records of 2008.
