Some pretty interesting stuff on the chart this week. Squarepusher, Akron/Family, Girl Talk and Grizzly Bear. All good stuff. I've listened to that Beach House record a couple times and I think I'm starting to like it, even though I'm not quite sure what I think about it overall just yet. And that Califone record is pretty good too.

SR- you should post mp3's of the bands you like from the list. I don't read other music blogs. Is this a music blog?
