Lorde :: Team (Autograf Remix)

Wanted to leave you with a free remix for the weekend and I think I've found the perfect one. This remix by Chicago's Autograf for Lorde's track "Team" is so lovely. Super chill down-tempo re-work that melts in your ears. Best part it's a free download in exchange for a couple follows. Well worth the price of admission. Enjoy & have a great weekend!

The Drums Of The City Rain

Gerard Way “Brother” The majority of Gerard Way’s first solo album sounds like Britpop filtered through alt-rock and grunge, and you’d think I’d be the biggest mark for that. But as it turns out, my favorite on the record is the one that sounds the most like his old band, My Chemical Romance. “Brother” is […]

? Listen: Garment District - Mix for International Tapes

This is real fun: Garment District made a mix for International Tapes! The track listing follows along in the player, and it pans out to be a solid mixture of (seemingly) inspirational tracks for her latest Night People album, If You Take Your Magic Slow. Show More Summary

Bear Hands :: Agora (Com Truise Remix)

We love Com Truise, mainly cause of his deep love for 80's sounds and synths like we have at OTR. Check out this excellent remix he did for Brooklyn band Bear Hands latest track "Agora". Real dark and slinky 80's sounding = delicioso! Check it...

Reflecting Your Eyes

Thurston Moore “Forevermore” I’ve spent enough time listening to Thurston Moore over the past 20 years that his particular rhythms and tics are burned into my mind, enough that I can hear a new song by him and accurately anticipate his every move. He’s basically been on autopilot for a long time now, but I […]

The Gutter bowling alley issues ebola statement (while Brooklyn Bowl repeats "not us")

Out this week but recorded during the turn of the century, #4# (abbreviation thine own) was the band’s final recorded album before their dissolution in 2001. Show More Summary

How I Learned Not To Care

Foxygen “How Can You Really” One of my friends made a joke that Foxygen’s …And Star Power sounds “like disc 47 of the Their Satanic Majesties Request sessions box set,” and yes, it definitely does. (With a bit of Todd Rundgren in there too, I suppose.) This isn’t surprising – a lot of the best […]

Annie Lennox turns nostalgia trip into a dull ride

4 hours agoMusic / Rock & Pop : Turn It Up

Annie Lennox, late of Eurythmics fame, is on shaky ground. "Nostalgia" (Blue Note), the title of her sixth studio album, is a loaded word, one which does not bode well for an artist once famous for pushing the outer edges of pop showmanship. And its premise, basically an American songbook...
