NEW MUSIC - Model Stranger - The Changing Score EP

Hey gang! Got a hot little EP for you all to enjoy as the end of the year draws near. Model Stranger, one of my top acts out of Chicago, put out The Changing Score a couple of months back. Since the release of their first full length, Dreams and Bones, back in 2010, Model Stranger have been diligent in releasing singles and EP's as well as touring all over the country in support of their various efforts.

The Changing Score, however, is a different animal. It's a clear departure from Dreams and Bones and shares little, stylistically (that unique Model Stranger string runs through...), with their last single "The Last Time." Maybe influences changed. Maybe the road did something to them. Maybe these guys have a lot of music in them...I tend to side with the latter.

The Changing Score is a great listen and a nice placeholder to enjoy until the gents of Model Stranger have another full length for us. It's a free download (but tossin' a few bucks around this time of year never hurt no one) and absolutely worth your time.

Enjoy guys.

Got another recent Arcade Fire set for you all. Their latest studio effort, Reflektor, has been dominating my stereo - it's such a complete album. "Normal Person" is one of the most rockin' tunes I've heard in some time. The lead guitar riff and especially its tone are absolutely spectacular.

Be listening to Reflektor, buy the album, and see these guys live - this latest tour promises to be one helluva a show.

Some #mmjfriday action. They pull out the Fela Kuti classic (listen to "Dondante" live...) "Trouble Sleep Yanga Wake Am." Mr. Michael Feld of "One Big Holiday" documentary fame initially turned me on to that. If you haven't seen his film then make sure to give her a watch right here.

As always, thanks to the taper. In this case Mr. Scott Bernstein (of the superb Hidden Track?). I'm like, pretty sure it's the same guy. Either way, the Hidden Track version is super cool and consumes good music at an incredible rate, and the one that taped this deal is obviously pretty darn cool, so, win win.

Arcade Fire released a new record yesterday, Reflektor, and so far I think it's pretty spectacular. I was able to get in 4 listens in but I was hooked after the first spin. The sound is pretty out there and it reminds me of the second Bon Iver album, their self-titled. Not from a sound/vibe perspective but that it's got an incredibly specific sound while be nothing like their previous work. It sounds as if they've been making music of this style for years.

This recording, at from the very recent Bridge School benefit, features new tracks from Reflektor and a never before played song called "I Dreamed a Neil Young Song" - with Neil Young.

Enjoy folks.

Donate to the Bridge School folks and thanks to Live Bootlegs for hooking it up with this set.

Nashville's The Raconteurs have a new Thirdman Records Vault recording coming for the end of the year. It features the band at the famous Ryman Auditorium, in Nashville, and it's unclear if there is a live film to go along with it.

In other Jack White news though...The Dead Weather are in the studio and working on new material. They plan on releasing pairs of songs for the next year or so, culminating in a new LP in 2015. AND, The Raconteurs are also apparently working on some new jams, but no new material has yet surfaced.
