Here’s a free MP3 download (thanks to NME) of Detroit indie pop new artist Alex Winston‘s single “Sister Wife.”   HOT.

I’ve written plenty about The Drums in the past, and had yet another opportunity to see them at last night’s Bowery Ballroom SOLD OUT show (1/13) – some pictures below.  Their one hour set included tracks off of their EP, Summertime, mixed in with new tracks that’ll be featured in an upcoming full length album – to be released later this year.  I won’t go on about them because I’ve said plenty in previous posts.  I’ll let others tell you:

“New York’s official Coolest New Band…this might be the most contagiously energetic NYC band of the past 10 years.” — NME

“Effortlessly mixes two disparate styles – Joy Division’s brooding, post-punk vibe and a strong dose of Dick Dale – into a jumpy, three-minute jam that’s catchier the H1N1” — Rolling Stone

I came across this photographer’s website and I’m both extremely jealous of his career, but also ready to become his assistant.  Where do I sign up?

Willsher has captured some of the hottest indie and mainstream acts out there – from candid moments to the more stylized settings – and I’m pretty floored.  He’s done editorial work for NME, Spin, and Nylon, and is inspired by the UK rock scene (including David Bowie).  He’s got a very creative eye and will likely make any audiophile envious of the scenes he’s captured.

One of my heroes in life chats up in London (for NME) and dishes on a possible covers album…

If it happens, which seems like it will, it should be pretty damn amazing.  The Killers aren’t familiar with mediocre anything.
