Track of the Day: Twain "Solar Pilgrim"

First brought to us by Big Thief, meet Twain, a music-maker that's been making his way across the internet the past month. His release Rare Feeling is out October 20 via our friends at Keeled Scales. "Solar Pilgrim" begins with melodic, meandering guitar riff before Mt. Davidson's quavering voice kicks in narrating a daydream. The build of the song follows a somnambulist's route--before you know it, percussion has kicked in, castanets, the gentle undertone of keys--as an entire dreamscape builds its way from the ground around us.

PREMIERE: The Deloreans - "Big Sur"

We Listen For You celebrates our tenth birthday this Friday and we just got the best birthday present possible: a new track from WLFY favorites THE DELOREANS.

If you're not familiar with The Deloreans, I suggest starting at American Craze, one of the best albums in the nine years we've been writing about music.  It's a masterpiece:

The Deloreans also released one of the best singles of 2014 and to this day is one of the most underrated songs I've ever heard:

We're excited to host The Deloreans' first concert in over a year this Friday in Louisville at Zanzabar. We hope Louisville will come out and ring in ten years with us and for those who can't make it, please check out and support the wonderful band that is The Deloreans.

This week's biggest release is probably LCD Soundsystem's return from "retirement." But, come on that cover art is atrocious. Can we all just agree that having something that looks bad just looks bad?
