MEX023_Front1. Washed Out – Feel it All Around – You should buy this EP, because it’s only $3.99, and because it sounds like the amazing lovechild of Miami Vice and Grizzly Bear. If nostalgia was a drug, you’d be so high right now. [from Life of Leisure EP|buy]
2. The Wooden Birds – The Other One – There’s a reason this sounds like American Analog Set and that is because this is the new project from AmAnSet’s Andrew Kenny featuring an all-star cast of performers and friends. Which means it’s time to break out the lemonade, put your feet up, and bask in the glow.  [from Magnolia|buy]
3. Little Birdy – Brother – This song is all well and good, biding its time with what sounds like a simple-enough Stevie Nicks-esque folk song, until the 1:44 mark. And then you’re like a fish on a line. [from Confetti|buy]
4. Zion I – Doin’ My Thang – It’s been awhile since I’ve had any hip-hop on the blog, but I will always be down with new hip-hop that sounds like old hip-hop. This song is like cruisin’ down the avenue, top down, in slow motion, blinded by sunlight bouncing off all that chrome. [from True and Livin’|buy]
