XTRA: Grandparents - Sugar Beach EP

Portland psych outfit - Grandparents, return with a colorful and wonderfully radiant EP titled Sugar Beach.  Spanning four songs and clocking in around 16 minutes, Sugar Beach presents itself in a more meticulous nature with more attention to detail and all-out songwriting.  Here Grandparents have broadened their sonic palette to genres spanning from shoegaze, to krautrock, to jangly guitar rock - highly recommended.  Download Sugar Beach at the Grandparents' Bandcamp page HERE for a mere $3 and save your pennies for a proper cassette release of the EP slated for late 2011 / early 2012.

Songs Of The Day: The Weeknd - Initiation

Abel Tesfayer continues to hone his mastery of indulgence, depravity, excess and debauchery. And he sure knows how to make it alluring. On this new cut, possibly off the upcoming Echoes of Silence, his pitch-bent vocals come off more desperate, more strung-out and a stronger whiff of a subtle seductive menace.
Here, he's setup a right of passage for his new object of desire (prey, more like it) and it's sure sounds unlike anything that happens in your typical Greek organization or neighborhood crew.
Obviously, Abel and his boys don't do much sleeping. XO!
