We’ve got a pretty cool selection of books and music on our big old bookshelf. But when it comes to buying music, not everyone is willing to purchase an album just based on the wacky cover art, no these guys need to hear the music too. So here’s a selection of some of my favourite new stuff, and of course if you’re interested in buying any of these albums just contact us.

Take It Easy – Surfer Blood

Surfer Blood’s debut album Astrocoast is brilliant collection of catchy surf rock anthems. Take it Easy is one of their more Vampire Weekend-y numbers.

Bhang Bhang, I’m a Burnout – Dum Dum Girls

I Will Be, Dum Dum Girls’ debut album, is a lo-fi half hour long tribute to 60’s bubblegum pop. It’s raw, distorted, giddy, and perfect!

Let’s Go Surfing – The Drums

Like a lot of stuff coming out of Brooklyn, NY these days, The Drums are all about Summer party music, in fact there album is even called “Summertime!”, Let’s Go Surfing is the perfect introduction.

Swim Until You See The Land – Frightened Rabbit

Frightened Rabbit started out as a threesome, then became a foursome and now for their second album Winter of Mixed Drinks they’re up to five! Seems like with every member they get better and better.

When I Go – Slow Club

Slow Club’s been producing cutesy, folksy indie pop for a number of years. Their debut album Yeah So is a lovely batch of twee little love songs.

Lovers’ Carvings – Bibio

For someone that’s spent the last six years or so making electronica, Bibio sure makes nice folk music.

Seeds of Night – The Cave Singers

The members of The Cave Singers have been in some heavy bands prior to this one – Pretty Girls Make Graves, Murder City Devils, Hint Hint, Cobra High – which makes me love this even more. The album Invitation Songs is gentle, genuine and compelling.

Lust For Life – Girls

Intent on making themselves the most difficult band to google, Girls just released their album Album (yip, it’s called Album) earlier this year. It’s simple, sunny and oddly Beach Boysy for a lead singer that grew up in a cult.

Yeah Yeah – Sam Means

Sam Means (formally of The Format) recorded the entire soundtrack for The Sinking of Santa Isabel in his house – in the guesthouse, the laundry room, the bedroom, the living room and the garage.

In B Flat – Beatenberg

Cape Town cool kids Beatenberg (that’s them in the picture up there) released Farm Photos just in time for the announcement that they’ll be going on a break from playing live. So maybe, just maybe, if we all buy their album they’ll make a trip up North at some point…

      1. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the easiest factor to consider of.
        I say to you, I certainly get annoyed at the same time as other folks consider worries that they just don’t recognise about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top as smartly as defined out the entire thing with no need side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thanks
