Viva la Mix! #13: Downloads from Beck, Air France, Bloc Party and Polvo

This week our Viva Radio playlist began and ended with covers, one a ’90s icon’s take on an unassailable proto-indie classic, the other a relatively unknown performer’s interpretation of a polarizing lo-fi indie up and comer. Pairings seemed to be the unintended theme of the mix, because sandwiched between these two worthy renditions you’ll find come-back two tracks from ’90s indie-rock darlings, two songs from Sweden’s Sincerely Yours, and a trio of cuts from various parts of the UK.

50 New Yorkers, One Leather Jacket [Photo Gallery + Giveaway]

Any New Yorker befitting his battle-ax knows that miles below the city lays a realm that orcs fear to enter. Spilling pits of fiery steel, master workers toil endlessly, raising altars to the dead heroes of Asgarth. While we’ve never plumbed this most metal of realms ourselves, former Flavorpill editor Gerry Mak is a long-time… Read More
