Courtney Barnett’s ambling lyricism and laid back delivery are applied to perfect effect on Depreston, a song about the slow realization that you might not be in the happiest of locales. Her new album, Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit, is out March 24 via Mom + Pop Music.

Emile Haynie – Falling Apart

If accomplished producer Emile Haynie’s latest single only featured a guest appearance from Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt, that would be a big enough deal. If it only featured a guest appearance from Brian Wilson, that would be an even bigger deal. So the fact that both vocalists can be heard on Falling Apart is downright amazing.

Even the Snow Turns Blue: An Over the Rhine Christmas Compilation

overtherhine

Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist seem to really like Christmas. They’ve released several Christmas albums over the years as Over the Rhine, with their latest (Blood Oranges in the Snow) hitting shelves last month. That said, it doesn’t mean the husband-and-wife duo whitewash the holiday season like many musicians. Instead, Blood Oranges is what they’ve decided to call “reality Christmas” music.

Even the Snow Turns Blue gives a nice sampling of Over the Rhine’s various Christmas offerings, from the more traditional to the incredibly personal. Consider it an early Christmas present from us to you.
