i thought i’d share some of the highlights on my i-tunes recently played list. you may have heard some of them before but sometimes it takes a little memory jog to remind you why you listened in the first place.
Local Natives-Sun Hands (these kids have just been confirmed as part of the line-up for this year’s Coachella… along side Pavement, Thom York, the xx, LCD soundsystem, grizzly bear, passion pit, dirty projectors, and more. go to the website to see the full line up)
The Sugarcubes-Birthday (shout out MC)
Woodpigeon-Empty Hall Sing Along
Portishead- The Rip (the pickup around the 2:15 mark is unparalleled.)
Wolf Parade-Grounds for Divorce
The Smiths-William, It Was Really Nothing
