New Track Rundown

Hello again faithful reader(s). It's time for another new track rundown and this time we are looking into the future; all the way to the year 2010. Sounds futuristic, eh? We're not even out of 2009 yet but 2010 is shaping up to be one hell of a year. I might even have to prematurely name Yeasayer's "Ambling Alp" song-of-the-year because it's just that damn good. Speaking of the tune, I have the video for it here and it is one of the most mind-blowing videos you will ever feast your eyes upon. Be forewarned, it is NSFW (that's not safe for work for all of you who are out of touch with the kids' internet lingo these days). I'm also bringing you live footage of new songs by Final Fantasy and Menomena, both of which are absolutely gorgeous. New tracks from Efterklang, Surfer Blood, Shearwater, Shout Out Louds, and Spoon serves as proof that 2010 will be a satisfying year for your eardrums. Also featured below is "Even Heroes Have to Die" the new song by Ted Leo & The Pharmacists who are releasing The Brutalist Bricks on March 9, 2010 with their new home, the always consistent Matador Records. The album cover is pictured above. If you haven't noticed, I also added a nifty little media player so you can stream songs that have download links right here on this very page by pressing the play button next to the track or by pulling out the player in the lower left-hand corner. With that, I'll advice you to stop reading and start listening.
