Toronto band The Seams (members of U.S. Girls, Fake Palms) released debut LP & “Remembrance Day” video

Toronto's The Seams features members of Fake Palms, Elsa, and U.S. Girls, and make the kind of ringing guitar pop you would hear a lot on college radio in the '80s. The cover art to their debut album, Meet the Seams, features an illustration of the band wearing R.E.M. and Stone Roses t-shirts, another good indication of the kind of music they make.

Our Favorite Albums of 2015

Day For Night Festival day 2 pics (Kendrick Lamar, HEALTH, Flying Lotus, Death Grips, Dan Deacon, Holly Herndon, more)

To the great relief of ticket holders, festival organizers, music bloggers and the hip-hop gods themselves, Kendrick lived up to the hype. Giving the rapper a giant stage with perfect weather in a city that loves him might have been equivalent to tossing a nice, fat softball to a man holding a flat-bottom shovel, but he still gets credit for knocking it out of the park...
