Listening: Well, I finally managed to break, at least temporarily, my Silversun Pickups addiction. It required a potent cocktail of the new Killers album, the latest Luomo album, and several listens through The Shondes’ The Red Sea. Now I talked about the Killers album last week, and it’s just grown on me since. But the surprise find of the week was this band Luomo. Maybe it’s just me, but until I ran across a tweet on Jeph Jacques’ twitter feed about their album Convivial. He mentioned that it’s a blend of good modern techno and vocal house, both things of which … Visit the blog to lend your wisdom, or you can comment below.
