End of the Week Wrap Up (2/01/13)

Wow there was a whole lot of killer new music out this week and I didn't get to touch on it all, so I wanted to do quick little recap on some highlights that never got posted.

Again a great week for new releases but none more exciting than the new one from Local Natives for me. This was one of my most anticpated for 2013 and it delivers. It's hard to pin down a favorite track right now because it changes daily but if your looking for something quiet check out "Colombia" HERE or maybe something a little more uptempo listen to "You & I" HERE.

Speaking of hotly anticipated albums Night Beds debut 'Country Sleep' is streaming over at Pitchfork now in advance of the Feb. 5 release date. You'll be finding this on everyone's 'best of list' at the end of the year guaranteed. Stream it HERE

Shovels and Rope made their television debut on David Letterman the other night, playing an emotional version of "Birmingham" that I think thoroughly impressed the host. Watch it HERE

High Highs debut album 'Open Season' came out this past Tuesday and among the many sweeping, dreamy tracks is the single "In a Dream." Listen HERE

Wake Owl  released this week what I would call a bit of a folk masterpiece with their phenomenal 5-song EP 'Wild Country'. You can stream all five tracks over on their Soundcloud page HERE

I've been waiting quite some time for this debut album from Trixie Whitley. It's called 'Fourth Corner' and it finally hit stores this week, and it's packed full of gritty soul & blues inspired tunes like only this talented young voice can deliver. Check out the album track, "Need Your Love" played on a rooftop in Belgium at Studio Brussels HERE.
