OBSESSIVE COMPULSIONS: FILTER’s Weekly Picks
By Staff on September 19, 2012
FILTER likes music. There's no hiding it. We also like our own opinions a whole bunch, so once a week we give the masses a fleeting glimpse into our selective stereos and Internet browsers to let them see firsthand what fuels our endless devotion. We like to think of it as community service. We're selfless like that. So without further ado, here are the official, inarguable, objectively good FILTER Weekly Picks—providing everything from new LPs you should be spinning to the latest good-fer-you videos. Yeah, we're good at what we do:
"Will Oldham on Bonnie Prince Billy", Edited by Alan Licht
Why: Books, in case you've forgotten, are the ones with pages and you can read words on them. - Pat McGuire
The Vaccines, "The Vaccines Come of Age"
Why: The album is out October 2nd and is so, so good. Album stream for all to enjoy is available here. - Sam Barnes
PSY - Gangnam Style
Why: If you haven't seen it, you haven't lived.- Sam Feld
Pumpkin flavored coffee
Why: It's probably the only thing I enjoy about summer ending. - Mike Bell
Fucked Up @ Rifflandia
Why: I was lucky enough to take the trip to Rifflandia in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia and saw Fucked Up in a tiny venue. They ripped hard. - Tim Dove
Why: "You'll get caught up in the... Crossfire!" - The inner 90s in us all.
Shut Up And Play The Hits
Why: Because Tim made me. But really, just got it in the mail and I'm so excited about this project. - Angelica Corona
