Music Stuff on the Internet - Glen Phillips, NO, The Mowglis, Local Natives, Dawes

For any of you that grew up or came of age in the 90's, chances are you listened to Fear by Toad The Wet Sprocket on repeat till the tape broke (and for those of you that didn't, that stinks).  Glen Phillips, lead singer of Toad the Wet Sprocket, recently performed a set on NPR's Mountain Stage, where he displayed his oh-so-familiar vocals that sound just as they did during the summer of Fear.  Oh, and he also mentions that Toad is working on new music.  Cue up your nostalgia and have a listen over at NPR.

NO recently did a session on Daytrotter, but for those of you who don't have a Daytrotter membership (you might want to rethink that), you can check out NO in this here video.  Offering up emotional heaviness and a tone a la Airborne Toxic Event, they also have some Soundcloud tracks up on their website.

If you are looking for additions to your summer playlist, go ahead and take a gander at the new video by The Mowglis for "The Great Divide" off their forthcoming album out June 18th. (via Paste)

As if I couldn't be more obsessed with Hummingbird Local Natives, they recently did a special performance for Spotify Sessions, which gives us a more acoustic-based look at some of the tracks from what I consider to be one of this year's best albums. You can listen to the full list of songs here.

The new Dawes album, Stories Don't End, is full of a more rounded out, robust Dawes, so its nice to see lead singer and songwriter Taylor Goldsmith take a step back from that studio sound and do this super-stripped-down rendition of John Fogerty's "Someday Never Comes" with his brother Griffin doing harmonies and bringing new attention to the lyrics.
