Inspector Owl delivers a crazy video for “Mousey” from their brand new eponymous LP. Kudos to Corey & Co. for another great album.

Sayonara released “Mothership” directed by our pal, Jamison Acker. Mix for this Dallas recording created right here at Couderay Music.

Woodstock Willie is Illinois’ most famous rodent next to Rod B. As groundhogs go, he seems nice enough. February 2nd is his big day and he says we’re getting an early spring. A year ago, Snowpocalypse happened. Sorry if I’m not biting. If spring happens I’ll salute it then. In the meantime, here’s a return to smearin’ — after a mid-winter hiatus — with Beck’s adventurous remix of Feist’s latest single,

How Come You Never Go There.” (Interscope/Cherrytree)

The War On Drugs, “Don’t Fear The Ghost” (Secretly Canadian)

Lambchop, “Gone Tomorrow” (Merge)

Chairlift, “Sidewalk Safari” (Young Turks/Columbia)

Pariah, “Left Unsaid” (R&S)

Mazzy Star, “Common Burn” (Rhymes Of An Hour)

M83, “Midnight City” (Mute)

Sayonara, “Mothership” (Lilypad)

It’s that time of year again… You want to buy your favorite stocking-stuffer a musical token. Unfortunately, you haven’t bought an album since that Sting solo début. Fret not, from hipster to broken hips, you’ll find something helpful here. I singled out a few, but Album Of The Year beat me to this compilation effort. Well done, AOTY.
