One of my recent favorite bands Xiu Xiu records another awesome thing, which is named "Women as Lovers", and included with a new Under Pressure (Queen&Bowie) cover. Honestly i first listened up this amazing cover, it's been an extra ordinary and successful version than any other Under Pressure covers. If you consider listening previous untouchable, deep and unapproachable Xiu Xiu albums, this album is more reachable than any of them. It's full of emotion, and i really have to appreciate these tracks, each of them is charming. I can't say that this is the best expression of Xiu Xiu's sad music, but Jamie Stewart's confrontational vocals are the best for sure. With this new album, i can say this the best new music. My song picks are: Gayle Lynn, Master of the bump, No friend oh!, The Leash, Under Pressure feat. Michael Gira.

A Chicago based indie electronic ( with their Tropical / Industrial / Minimalist sound ) band which I liked at first listen, releases Kontpab. It basically warns the human race of the mass "funneling" of the populace minds into The Grid. Their sound is as same as any indie electronic bands that only think beats beats and some interesting noises on and on. However there are the songs which you can't ignore at here. Second track "Problems" makes strong my belief in Mahjongg. Totally electronic and with its similarity to 8-bit video game sounds, Tell the Police the Truth becomes another great found on this record. Despite its full of adventure-loving and interesting sound, Kontpab doesn't provide something fairly evergreen.
Mahjongg - Pontiac Mahjongg - Tell the Police the Truth(MM song pick!)

With a cup of tea in my hand, I loved digging my previous posts instead of looking for some other new bands, and i wanted to share beautiful ones with you.
On a friday i'd made a Top 10 Singles list in which Grizzly Bear reached the top, it's still a great song i love to listen. O Valencia by The Decemberists, The Great Salt Lake by Band of horses and Sleepy jackson, they're all great singles which i still oftenly play. I know you love New Singles section, it takes huge time finding all those singles and putting them in a order.
Elliott Smith - Speed Trials Joni Mitchell - Banquet

I've recently discovered this New York based buzz band, and you should hear their relaxing pop song "M79". I like to hear unmixed indie rock songs. "M79" isn't the only good song of them, there are bunch of nice cuts on their new self-titled record such as Mansard Roof, Oxford Comma and A-Punk. And they mostly sound like XTC or Rusted Root, you know them, they're cool. Ok here comes video of Ecstasy by Rusted Root. If you like entertaining, joyful indie rock bands, Vampire Weekend is for you. Vampire Weekend talks about the song "M79":
We just finished recording this song too. The final version is very different than this one. Rostam played piano here so I feel like it has a kind of honky-tonk vibe. On the album, there are a lot of different instruments and string arrangements. It’s named after a bus in Manhattan that goes across Central Park. There are usually a lot of old people on it — maybe going to a museum or hospital on the Upper East Side.
I hope they gain some attention, because this album grows on me. Vampire Weekend - M79 Vampire Weekend - I Stand Corrected
