We listen to a lot of music. Like, a lot. It’s pretty much the point of our jobs, of course, but there’s another reason: we love music. We love buying records, we love going to shows, and (okay, sure) we love finding spur-of-the-moment leaks of heavily-anticipated albums, just like (we hope) you. Music is pretty much our lives.
Rather than operate as a music news source, EB.net operates more as a music information source. We want to share with you; we want you to know what we’re hearing. Welcome to Editor’s Choice: our weekly playlist of what’s making our ears burn.

I finally just got myself a brand new limited edition Panda Bear x Alien Workshop x Scott Mou baby bomb old school skateboard deck, which is why I’ll be feeling comfy in ‘Person Pitch’, ‘Berserker’, and ‘Tomboy’ all week long.
Panda Bear – Comfy in Nautica
Panda Bear – Surfer’s Hymn (Actress Remix)
Talk Normal – Bad Date
I hadn’t heard much from these two since their debut so I assumed the worst, but this glimpse of their upcoming LP Sunshine suggests the best. Fairly fucking sick.
Holy Other – Held
I’m listening to the whole album right now and I’m dying.

Telephoned – U Don’t Have To Call
Telephoned joined forced with Clams Casino and this easily could be the summer soundtrack – but here in Berlin the summer is far, far away.
Django Django – Bail Hop
Love this band. This album, all year long!
Prodigy – Extreme
Dark boom-bap from Havoc, murda messages from Illuminati-hater and pope impersonator, (see brilliant video for ‘Great Spitters’) Prodigy of Mobb Deep. Strongest track off H.N.I.C. 3 with P elegantly turning his sickle cell anemia into threatening imagery: “Make my cell start to sickle/my adrenaline rush/You think things not official/I’m a show you/Hope you satisfied when I take your L.” He’ll smoke you and your blunt.
Conrad and Gregor Schnitzler – The Shark Eats Ice
Papa Conrad goes Dada with son Gregor. One of the rare exceptions to the rule of not being able to sing along or dance to Conrad Schnitzler.
