Music Monday: Ra Ra Riot.
Ra Ra Riot is an indie rock band from Syracuse, New York. Their blend of haunting strings and upbeat rhythms is excellent. Check out Can You Tell? and Run My Mouth on The Rhumb Line, their first album. Easily my favorite tracks. I found this band a while ago, but I definitely want to spread the word.
Also, good news: Ra Ra Riot's lead singer, Wes Miles, is teaming up with Vampire Weekend's keyboardist, Rostam Batmanglij, to produce a project that will be called Discovery, which will be released July 7th. You can read more about that on Pitchfork. Sounds like a pretty good combo to me.
