Out This Week 4/9

To call James Blake‘s second LP “greatly anticipated” may be a bit of an overstatement, but only because it’s been hardly two months that we’ve even known that a new album would be available some time this year. Despite the short time to process the news, fans certainly were eager to hear what the angelicallyRead more...

Weird At My School: OMD speak!

I geeked out hard about my adoration of UK synth-pop duo Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark on the KEXP blog last year, and I was beside myself with joy when they played live for KEXP during the 2011 SXSW music conference. Well, except for the fact that I wasn’t there! Happily, OMD are touring theRead more...

Weird At My School: Claudia Brücken

The career of Claudia Brücken is a triumph of quality over quantity. Although the German singer has been making records since 1984, when she bowed with Propaganda‘s dark and majestic single “Dr. Mabuse,” her core discography features only five full-length albums, each made with different collaborators. Certainly “Greatest Hits” discs have been compiled from farRead more...

Weird At My School: History of Modern

My friend Wes and I were talking about records as “fetish items” the other day. He’s trying to decide whether or not to try and find a new label for his next album, or self-release (as he did with his last one), or forgo a physical record entirely. I mentioned that I’d learned how toRead more...
