Hear “Happy Idiot,” a brand new track from TV On The Radio’s forthcoming record Seeds (out Nov. 18 via Harvest Records).
"OctaHate" by Ryn Weaver
I am two months late to this one, but what a pop song, right? It reminds me of a mix of country-pop with that early aughts “alternative-to-Britney”vein of pop that was supposed to sound rebellious, but was as sugary-sweet in its production and hooks as the more showy gems. I only just heard this a couple of days ago and I’ve already got those verses memorized. That’s the sign of a great track.

Julian Velard - No One’s Getting Married Tonight
My super singer-songwriter/pianist friend created a music during his own wedding reception, and it’s nothing short of fabulous. Even better — his wife had no idea. AWWW.
He’s also got a superb new album out right now — a concept record about the greatest city on Earth: NYC. Check it out. It’s worth every penny. - J
