    NPR First Listen: Poliça, ‘Shulamith’
Channy & co. hit it out of the park again! This album is like chilling in an alien pirate ship floating through the night sky. Bummed I’m going to miss them because I’m heading to their hometown while they’re in mine.

    Listening to Mazzy Star's bluesy dream of an album, Seasons of Your Day, is making us really excited to levitate at their Terminal 5 show in November.
Get a glorious earful here

    Wild Flag - “Electric Band”

    Another fun, silly video from this rocking lady party. Wild Flag vs. The Bears, who will win?! Either way, the bears should’ve eaten everyone in the end!

    Mount Kimbie - “Maybes,” “Ode to Bear” and “Field” Live @ NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

    For the last three days I’ve been relaxing and falling asleep to the epic chill of this duo’s debut LP Crooks & Lovers. When I got to the YouTube search-crazy stage of my procrastination last night, I watched this about six times. “Ode to Bear” is my favorite! So sad we missed them when they played LPR earlier this year, hopefully they’ll be back in NYC sooner than later. I also love that Jon Hopkins is all up in the front of the crowd showing support <3 —Cheep

    Listen to 'Biophilia' on NPR... →

    Miss Björk is filling our lives with loveliness yet again with her latest record a.k.a. mega-production, Biophilia. We’re sure you’ve heard all about how intricate it is with its apps, but if like us, all you can manage is to listen to the album because you don’t have an iPad, it will suffice, because it is a thing of majestic beauty.

    It could also be a matter of perception… perhaps I’m influenced by the gorgeous autumn weather beaming down in New York. —Snail

    Listen to 'Glass Tambourine' by Wild Flag - NPR →

    Have I just fallen for another lady band? If their upcoming full length makes my ears perk up as much as this song has then we’re in business!

    R.E.M - Collapse Into Now Album Streaming on NPR →

    I’m about to give the album a second listen, but the first one really left me craving more R.E.M in my life. Instant favorites: “Oh My Heart” / “Alligator_Aviator_Autopilot_Antimatter” / “Blue”-Snailem

    Watch Belle and Sebastian's Holiday Spectacular on NPR →

    Yesterday afternoon I got into the Christmas spirit whilst watching Belle and Sebastian's Holiday Spectacular broadcast live from Glasgow via NPR.

    The entire show is up in both audio and video format (the latter until Dec. 27) for those who missed it or would like to relive the whirlwind of warmth, happiness and holiday cheer like only B&S can do it. —Cheep

    Four songs in and this album has already proved it exists to turn frowns upside down…and make ‘em giggle a bit.
