Your Wednesday In Austin

Let’s be straight here.  Austin is the shit.  No seriously, this is the best city in the world.  You know it you not cool people who don’t live here… I say this because this post is only possible because of the great place we live in.  One night and too many options for live music.  Most cities would die to have these kind of choices in a month span.  We get em all in one night!  Here they are for tomorrow night:

From The Mind Of AdiEnglish Teeth, The Georgian Company and Followed By Static @ Mohawk ($5 cover. Doors @ 6pm)

White Rabbits & Here We Go Magic @ The Independent ($13 tickets. Doors @ 9pm)

Julian Casablancas & Funeral Party @ La Zona Rosa ($20 tickets. Doors @ 7pm)

Bonobo, Yppah, & Jesse Brede @ The Parish ($15 Tickets. Doors @ 9pm)

Where you gonna be?

New Music From Here We Go Magic

Luke Temple and his band Here We Go Magic are currently sitting on top of the world.  They earned spots on all kinds of year end lists with their debut LP last year and pretty much everyone is labeling them the next big thing.  Now only a year after their debut release, HWGM are planning to release their sophomore effort, Pigeons, on June 8th via their new label Secretly Canadian.  This album will feature collaborations from all band members as opposed to last years album that was basically a Luke Temple solo effort.  Below you can find the first sneak peak from the album, “Collector”, which some of you may recognize as a staple of their live sets.  After a few spins, I’m ready to call this best new song of the week and a must have album in 2010.

FT50: Songs of 2009

bestof2009cover_songsWe have to start this list off with a disclaimer.  We have three writers, all with different tastes, so the list should reflect that a little bit.  Also, these are our opinions, and by no means, are they meant to be seen as an “end all be all” to the question of what were the best songs of 2009.  That being said, we like our list quite a bit.  Sure, it’s got some expected numbers at the top, but the rest of the list is genius.  We’ve got some of the songs streaming for you, and the rest take you straight to youtube.  Follow the jump for full list.
