Recent tracks: some that have made it on to my weekly mp3 blasts, others that were just a little too eclectic. enjoy.
Post Post – The Auction (pt 2) <– psuedo-punk from a group of young (pre-pubescent?) girls? sounds a little like Smoosh x Tilly & the Wall vox. i know this will make ppl like Suz skeptical, but i promise, it’s a lot less whiny and a lot more subdued than you’d think. a track ive really enjoyed lately.
Free Energy – Something in Common <– man, ive liked everything ive heard from these guys lately. Dream City was an instant fave, and this latest track is super enjoyable. they sort of remind me of Local Natives for some reason, though im almost positive the two sound nothing alike. in fact, these guys are prob more in the vein of the strokes…
Irma Thomas – Breakaway <– courtesy of Jazzy, who’s been digging up some serious gems down in New Orleans. this is from ’64, and damn if it shouldnt be a classic.
The Golden Filter – Thunderbird <– more lush goodness. i dont know why, but i really dig stuff like this. it’s weird and ambient and only mildly dancey, but it’s just so… chill, and not in that awful dave matthews sort of way that i hate.
Michael Franti & Spearhead – Say Hey (I love you) <– seriously, try not to smile when you hear this.
hmm, that’s all for now.
