Robert Sarazin Blake 2/17/14

Streaming Audio

It's cringingly lazy to compare a performer like Robert Sarazin Blake to Dylan, but it's almost impossible not to on a track like "OK, OK, OK," in which Blake strums a featherweight rhythm as a backdrop for lyrics that border on spoken word.

Weekend
"Jinx"
Slumberland

In Season 9 of "The Simpsons," Lisa is convinced that she possesses a gene that will render her as stupid as Homer and Bart someday, and in an effort to feed her brain with as much culture as possible before its inevitable decline, she goes to a jazz club and is dismayed when another patron compares the performance to someone "hitting a baby with a cat."

Aoife O'Donovan 10/20/13

Streaming Audio

Folk singer-songwriter Aoife O'Donovan, of Crooked Still, has a new solo album, "Fossils," and brought three of those songs to this intimate live set.

Ezra Furman may look like a scruffier version of Conor Oberst, but on his second solo album, "Day of the Dog," he howls away all prepossessions of indie folk and proves himself to be one of rock 'n' roll's native sons.

"Soft Will"
Mom+Pop Music

Chicago's Smith Westerns were formed in 2007 by high school students Max Kakacek and brothers Cullen and Cameron Omori, who between them shared an interest in playing music but nearly zero experience in actually doing it.

Camera Obscura
"Desire Lines"
4AD

Produced by Tucker Martine in Portland, Ore. last winter, "Desire Lines" is Camera Obscura's fifth full-length album, stamped with a signature sound that's both moody and glowing, gloomy and sweet.

The National
"Trouble Will Find Me"
4AD

I get it, Internet. The National is not a "fun" band.

The term "Easter egg" refers not only to a festive springtime tradition, but also to a bonus or extra feature on a DVD, game, or other piece of digital format media, a sort of gift from the creator to the viewer, should the viewer be dorky/obsessive/having of enough time to kill to find the X-marks-the-spot hiding place.

Fitz and the Tantrums
"More Than Just a Dream"
Elektra



Recently, a cab driver asked me what I'd been listening to lately, and when I told him that I'd started playing Fitz and the Tantrums' new release "More Than Just a Dream" he replied that the band had been very popular lately, and his tone was not without a hint of derision.
