The Morning Benders - Virgins

It's always a treat to see a beautifully shot vid from the gang at La Blogoteque. It's extra sweet when it's a band debuting new is this case with this new jam from the Morning Benders. Check it below.

Sufjan Stevens - The Age of Adz

Well, it was a good idea...But with the upcoming release of The Age of Adz, it seems the historian has closed the chapter on his state album project.

Lucky for us, it's not necessarily a bad thing, because Sufjan still has the touch. The new album on Asthmatic Kitty being released October 12th, is quite a departure from what you might expect. Like this dude has been spending the past few years listening to more Jay-Z and less Bonnie "Prince" Billie, kind of expect. Not to worry, he still manages to come across as earnest and melodic as we've come to expect...but you know, with more hip-hop beats.

Take a listen and decide for yourself. The always impressive NPR Music is streaming the album in its entirety; listen here.

You can also check him out at the Wiltern October 23 and 24. Note that both dates are sold out.
