if i can't find the rhythm/if i can't find a cure

It's been incredibly cold the last few days here, but, fortuitously, the perfect EP came out to ease away the winter blues. Tyler Lyle released a new EP "Expatriates" and it is absolutely wonderful. Tyler's voice just drips with this sense of searching, of yearning for something wonderful. There's a certain serenity that his music invariably brings me to, and this new EP doesn't disappoint. Listen to the track Medusa below, and then head over to Bandcamp and buy it.

I also stumbled on a few videos this week that made me quite happy, and figured they were worth a share:

 

This beautiful video of Typhoon, hanging out in a tree:

And this one of Pickwick, whose debut album comes out this year, and which will be fucking wonderful. I mean seriously, listen to Galen's unbelievable voice, and this song, and wow:

This video of the National which I had never seen before. I'm really pumped to see them again at Bonnaroo this year:
