123-1.jpgPeter, Bjorn And John’s latest full length Writer’s Block finally saw its U.S. release this past Tuesday coupled with a bonus disc of six additional tracks.

Anyone who became entranced with the Stockholm trio’s synth/folk, sixties inspired “Young Folks” single last year is sure to want to check this out in full. In additon to the original, be sure to check out the sitar version of “Young Folks” below.

Speaking of Swedes, Chromewaves profiles Emil Svanangen, aka Loney, Dear, and his new album Lonely, Noir recently released on Sub Pop.

———————————————————————————————————————————explsions.jpgFebruary 20th sees the long awaited follow-up to Explosions In The Sky’s last full length LP, which was their excellent score for the film Friday Night Lights. Entitled All of A Sudden I Miss Everyone, EITS return with their trademark instrumental atmospherics and mood pieces set over the span of six tracks. Fans rejoice.

Also: For all you vinyl junkies, if you have $19.98 burning a hole in your pocket, the eclecticly awesome Hip-O Select label has Explosions In The Sky’s score to Friday Night Lights available on wax as a double gatefold album. I have not heard this edition myself, but I imagine it sounds even better with the needle rolling over those etched grooves.

New (to me) music blog Feedmegoodtunes has music from Switchfoot, Skid Row (Skid Row? I’m back in Jr high! high five!) and more. Enjoy! Stereogum has two tracks from Frog Eyes, which, having no experience in music journalism, I can only describe as “epic.” Sam – you may remember him from such blogs Selective Service and You Can Take the Boy Out of Brooklyn  –  posts an overlooked Bowie song on ‘Service, and at ‘Brooklyn, posts an MP3 from new Zuneinsider favorite Office. I like Peter, Bjorn, and John. And thanks to this post at Aquarium Drunkard, I have more of their MP3s My Old Kentucky Blog posts an exclusive MP3 from Carl Broemel (of My Morning Jacket, Old Pike, and Planet Earth) You Ain’t No Picasso brings you music from Great Lake Swimmers, which he says “sounds like Sufjan Stevens orchestrating a Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy song.” Awesome Different Kitchen, for hip hop heads out there, posts a track from Kidz in the Hall feat Jay-Z. And last but certainly not awesome: Rock Insider Jax – high five! – this week brings you MP3s from In Waves. cool.
