The Soundtrack of Our Lives 
Throw It To The Universe| Yep Roc

The Soundtrack of Our Lives was formed in
Sweden in 1995 from the remnants of exploding cult band Union Carbide Productions. Led by Ebbot Lundberg, their bearded mystic frontman, they have been on a mission to prepare the world into the next density of mankind. TSOOL's 6th and final album Throw It To The Universe represents the culmination of their 20 year career. Though the band is calling this their swan song, in terms of recording together, the songs reflect a band that is still vibrant and searching for the perfect chord. Highlights include the opening, title track, with the appropriate line, ''We say hello to say goodbye. We are the Soundtrack of Our Lives.'' ''Where's the Rock'', ''You Are the Beginning'', ''When We Fall'', and ''Faster Than The Speed of Light'', are all standouts. ''Busy Land'', sounds like a track Pete Townshend might have written for the Who's ''A Quick One'', if he had been looking for a song about ''little white dwarves,'' coming to terms with the modern world. Throw It to the Universe definitely has all of the things fans have loved about this band packaged in one final TSOOL album.

CITIZENS! 
Caroline EP | Kitsuné/Co-op

A fresh signing to hip label Kitsuné, the greatly anticipated debut from the quirky indie band Citizens! doesn't disappoint. Produced by none other than Franz Ferdinand producer Alex Kapranos, the band's debut full length is an eclectic mix of catchy tunes and is a definite statement that the band have landed on the radar. The hypnotic lyrics are accompanied by synthy electro pop, next to edgy bass and strong riffs. With subtle Bowie and Hot Chip influences, the album instantly captures the listener. The band has produced an album which is drenched in indie pop, with a quirky refreshing sharpness to it. The cool lyrics are playful and never too serious, but still pack a punch -as NME says, "The result is an album as art-smart as Franz, as disco droll as Hot Chip, as pose pop as The Naked and Famous, and as catchy and cool as Two Door Cinema Club." The Caroline EP is just a sample of the awesome talent that we have certainly come to expect from both Kitsune and Cooperative music, and will now definitely anticipate from Citizens!
