First Listen Friday:
Tulsa, Thao w/GDSD, and Hot Chip

Man, it's been a long week of work and I'm looking forward to the weekend. Last weekend was jam packed with a trip to Springfield to see the incredible Yo La Tengo, and the work week was filled with stress and overtime. This weekend I vow to take it easy!

Here are some tracks that have got me through.

Tulsa - "Rafter"

The echoing guitars and vocals evoke a nice relaxing mood. I Was Submerged came out late last year from this band out of Boston.

Thao with The Get Down Stay Down - "Swimming Pools"

Off of her upcoming album We Brave Bee Stings and All, to be released next week. I've certainly braved some metaphorical bee stings this week.

Hot Chip - "Ready for the Floor"

The soothing voice of Alexis Taylor takes the edge off. The Range Life staff is excited about this upcoming release and there will certainly be more to come from the blog.
