Happy New Year! If you missed a party on New Year’s Eve, we have something to make up for it. This Thursday, local acts are gathering at Glasslands Gallery for a Popgun celebration. The headlining band is Snowmine, one of my personal favorites from 2011. Snowmine consists of five handsome men with the talents of creating tribal nostalgia. Their music can be received as low waves of synthed indie rock mixed with splashes of orchestrated pop. Laminate Pet Animal (Snowmine’s album) is a collection of delightful body treatments.

Kool A.D. aka Victor Vasquez aka @veeveeveeveevee, member of one of 2011′s stand out rap troupes Das Racist, released a mix tape last night. It’s called The Palm Wine Drinkard. In the course of self-promoting (and flooding everyone’s Twitter feeds) Vasquez reached the Twitter daily post limit and is now in Twitter jail. But if you are heading back to work today still a little hungover but wanting to start 2012 off right, download this and put it on your headphones for your commute.
