Tennis is Denver-based husband and wife duo pumping out pop diddies like no one's business. The band was formed about a year ago when the couple bought an old sailboat in Florida and toured the Eastern seaboard for seven months; writing songs sporadically. Eventually they blew all their cash on moorage fees and lobsta dinners and had to flee back to Denver to record. Marathon is a legit and comes off their 7" hit train.

The amazing remixer is back with his take on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Following some work at Disney (apparently), Pogo released his new track a few days back and it has been taking over the Internet. Check out the video above to see where he finds the sounds.

Sun Ra is the mastermind behind some of the sickest free-from jazz to come from the modern era of music; and at the same time, his style established a precedent for hip hop that cannot be refuted. He claimed to be of an "Angel Race," not for Earth, but Saturn, insisting his birth name belonged to, "an imaginary person who never existed...Any name I use other than Ra is a pseudonym." Enjoy, Earthlings.
Safari has been out on the road for the last two months promoting their new album Maybe Tomorrow - a hearty straight rock album for anybody who is sick of flittering hipsters dancing around microkorgs . The current lineup is comprised of Marco Narone on drums, Billy Webb on bass, and Nico Walker on lead/vocals. Walker brings to the table a visceral voice like he doesn't give a fuck, and a set of lyrics cut from his experiences which include a two year tour with the Line Infantry in Iraq.
East Jordan, Michigan's Breathe Owl Breathe is new folk gold. Singer Micah Middaugh drummer Trevor Hobbs and cello/ vocalist Andrea Moreno-Beals craft some pretty sweet melodies. The band was formed in 2004 when Andrea had just finished her sixth week at Oberlin College, where she met Micah at a Dairy Queen in Northern Michigan. Being the academic she is, she dropped out, and holed herself up with Middaugh and now-bandmate Trevor Hobbs in what they call “magic central,” a small log cabin commune in the Michigan woods.
Dogwalkers and Dragon come off their most recent album Magic Central and Toboggan comes from their first full-length album Canadian Shield. Real solid tracks; working well with the Baltimore fall.
If any of you need something to meditate on look no further. Nisargaddatta will help you out. Here he discusses themes from his seminal book I Am That in 1973.
