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.

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
