Last week I chose to profile just some of the artists I listened to from the previous week so I think I’ll stick with that formula again this week. The number one most listened to band of last week was The Go Find, who was suggested to be by my friend Sam. They’re a Belgian band who just released their newest album Everybody Knows It’s Gonna Happen Only Not Tonight, and I can’t stop listening to it. I’d also suggest you check out the beautiful cover art which was done by Julia Guther. I might just run a separate post on her, she’s really great. They kind of remind me of The Rosebuds a bit, but that’s the best I got.

Then we had some Travis mixed in their, who I could probably say are one of my favorite bands of all time. I was hooked as soon as I heard Why Does It Always Rain On Me? when I was in high school and I’ve been loyal since, even through the mess of 12 Memories. If you’ve never heard anything by Travis before I’d suggest starting first with The Man Who, then jumping up to The Boy With No Name.

After that I wanted to talk about Hot Chip and their new album One Life Stand. I wasn’t a big fan of the last album, but I really loved The Warning. I’d say this is more in line with The Warning, just a fun dance record that doesn’t take itself seriously. There are a couple tracks I’m not hot on (Slush and Take It In) but I’d still consider it to be an outstanding album. Anyone know who did the artwork for the new album?
