Mundo Musique: Sleater-Kinney – “Surface Envy”

Mundo Musique: Sleater-Kinney – “Surface Envy”

This week, the newly reunited Sleater-Kinney did an AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit. They used that opportunity to drop a new single “Surface Envy”, which will be on their upcoming LP No Cities To Love, due out January 20th.  Earlier this year they shared another single “Bury Our Friends”. If these two tracks are any indication, Sleater-Kinney are back with a […]

Mundo Musique: American Wrestlers, “I Can Do No Wrong”

Mundo Musique: American Wrestlers, “I Can Do No Wrong”

The moniker American Wrestlers is a bit misleading. First of it, American Wrestlers is the brainchild of one guy. Second, this one guy isn’t American at all, but he was born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland. Third, like that entertainment called wrestling, American Wrestlers is mysterious. His real name has not been shared and is unknown, like a wrestler who […]

Mundo Musique: The Goodnight – “Back to Life”

Mundo Musique: The Goodnight – “Back to Life”

I have a thing for very well polished indie/pop/rock bands and the majority of the time I get into a band and then they become “mainstream”. Walk the Moon and Bastille are perfect examples for me. Walk the Moon started with a large college aged following and finally grew to blow up onto the mainstream alternative rock charts. Bastille played live last year […]

Mundo Musique: PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING – “GAGARIN”

Mundo Musique: PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING – “GAGARIN”

If you do not know the genius of PSB or PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING, the video for GAGARIN will be a great introduction. I was lucky enough to see them live earlier this year at SXSW and I was not disappointed. PSB takes old footage and audio from historical archives and turns them into songs. As far as innovative and different, […]

Mundo Musique Hidden Gem: Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band – “Big Blue Chevy ’72”

Every once in a while, I feel like participating in Throwback Thursday.  Today is definitely one of those days. Earlier this week, Indiana’s Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band shared this video on their Facebook for “Big Blue Chevy ‘72” off of their 2012 record Between The Ditches.  I was immediately reminded of why I love this band and their crazy style.

Mundo Musique Hidden Gems: Julia Holter – Pushkin

Mundo Musique Hidden Gems: Julia Holter – Pushkin

I always find it really interesting to see how a song came to be.  This week, Julia Holter was interviewed by Hrishikesh Hirway on his fantastic podcast Song Exploder where musicians talk about how one of their songs came into existence.

Mundo Musique: Max Frost –  ‘Paranoia’

Mundo Musique: Max Frost – ‘Paranoia’

Max Frost is from Austin and I’m super excited he has a new single out . Frost has a way of writing a song with serious content and turn it into a track you really want to move to. His most popular single last year was ‘White Lies‘,  and for a while I couldn’t keep it off repeat.   ‘White Lies’ is about a relationship full of […]

Mundo Musique: Coquin Migale – ‘Gold’

Coquin Migale came out with their debut EP last year which was a great starting point for this band.  If you are looking for a funny video this week – check out their home made “unofficial video” for last year’s release Forty Four. The video totally confirms my first original thought – that these lads would be super cool to hang out with. […]
