On A Different Note – 10

Flash Delirium” by MGMT

This new track by MGMT sound kinda like a new-agey Beatles song, I like it.

DeadND” by Gonjasufi

I like Gonjasufi’s new album. Its called A Sufi and A Killer, and its kind of different. It sounds like some fuzz old timey hip-hop-pop with a touch of India. Just listen to it.

Rose Bath” by Raw Moans

Sleep Paralysist” by Neon Indian

Life Coach” by Fang Island

A friend of mine turned me to this album, it’s pretty decent as well. He wrote a review for it here.

Black Horses” by Dirty Beaches

Is it me or does that look like a dharma initiative logo?
