premiere: Leon Bridges – Coming Home

LEON BRIDGES COMING HOME

It's been way too long since we were blown away by someone from around here, but we feel like these brilliant throwback soul jams from Crowley's Leon Bridges are pretty undeniable. We don't know much about Bridges at this point, and it's hard to believe that this kid channeling a young Sam Cooke comes from our own backyard, or anywhere, but we can't escape the promise of greatness we keep hearing in his timeless songs...

GvsB IV

GvsB IV

We are psyched to finally announce the 2014 edition of our annual summer showcase: GvsB IV happens on Friday, September 12, 2014, at the Granada Theater here in Dallas. This year is special, as we are beyond honored to present arguably our single favorite artist in the history of this site, Noah Lennox, aka Panda Bear, whose Person Pitch remains one of the most influential and acclaimed albums of the past decade, and whose current live set (complete with all new material + mind-warping visuals from Animal Collective collaborator Danny Perez) is one of the best shows we've ever experienced...

gorilla vs. bear’s albums of 2013

ALBUMS OF 2013

Here is the list of our favorite releases of 2013: not quite as deep as last year's list, which probably has more to do with our increasingly/intently focused listening habits (I feel like I listened to nothing but Anxiety for a month straight early this year, thus its spot at the top) than the quality of this year's offerings. Check our selections + a very emotional accompanying BEST OF 2013 mix (and Spotify playlist) below, and as always, we'd love to hear your thoughts on anything we might have overlooked. Stay tuned for the GvsB songs of 2013 list -- easily my favorite post every year -- coming soon...
