    Fuck Buttons - Street Horrrsing

    Fuck Buttons? Fuck yes! I began work everyday over the last week forcing this London electronic/noise duo's peculiar bliss into the morning air, allowing it to grow and morph into the madness it inevitably becomes. What is twinkly, cute and gentle, flowing in rhythms and electric pulses akin to tiny waves splashing against the shoreline of a lake one minute is damn-you-to-hell guitar distortion and ugly, shattering vocal screams into toy microphones the next. If Belong and Panda Bear and Ministry ever did something together, it wouldn't be nearly as good as this.

    See them next: Sunday, April 20 at Chop Suey with Caribou

    Sera Cahoone - Only As The Day Is Long

    Those softies over at Sub Pop wasted no time bringing out their new bright shining stars of 2008, including Grand Archives, Fleet Foxes, and now Sera Cahoone, the former member of Carissa's Wierd. Only As The Day Is Long, Cahoone's second solo release, is her Sub Pop debut, and it's marked with tender, simmering alt-country numbers that so many in this city have come to know and fall in love with over the last few years. Listen to her and e'rythang's gonna be awright.

    See her next: Today, at 6pm at Easy Street Records or Saturday, March 29 at Tractor Tavern for her CD Release Party with Panda & Angel, and Carrie Biell

    She & Him - Volume One

    First it was Swell Season, then it was Swell Season winning the Oscar for Once, now it's She & Him, the much talked-about, highly anticipated collaboration between M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel. (Listening). Okay, moving on...

    The Dodos - Visiter

    San Francisco folk/pop duo The Dodos are as true of underdogs as they come these days. After scraping together savings to self-release the late-2006 recording Beware of the Maniacs, they hit the road for most of 2007, getting picked up by Akron/Family, Jennifer Gentle, and ultimately, Les Savy Fav, the band whose guitarist signed the Dodos to his label, French Kiss. It shouldn't be at all surprising if The Dodos become THE MUST HEAR BAND OF 2008 with Visiters. Another solid, fulfilling record, and they deserve every bit of praise.

    See them next: It'll be a while before they get back to the northwest (in Boise on July 2), but when they make their way back to Washington state, you can damn well bet you'll overhear some folks saying stuff like "I saw that band play in front of six people in Olympia."

    Listen: The Dodos - "Fools" (mp3)

    Also released today: Destroyer, The Kills, Mission of Burma reissues, Neon Neon, Be Your Own Pet, The Teenagers
