Whoa baby what a week! Lots of new favorites for me personally. This will be a week to remember when I create my end of year best of 2013. Enjoy!
Pusher love girl from Justin Timberlakes 3rd album 20/20
JT has been nSync with performing since 1991. This Jack of all trades is a Grammy winning Saturday Night Live hosting King of the dance moves FOOL. Try to hate him. Dick in a box? Check. Boy band star? Check. Summer movie film star? Check. He's got it bad, this triple threat man. Watching his performance at the Grammys 2013 reminded me of why I love Justin so.
I love you from WoolKid's debut album The Golden Age Club
Wool Kid is headed by baroque pop French artist Yoann Lemoine. He also is a big time director of music videos in the industry, credits including Katy Perry and Lana Del Rey. Not many can receive a Grammy nominee BEFORE releasing an album. This would be for the single Run Boy Run's video.
I can see why... what do you think? I'm keeping my eye on this band, I find myself wanting to keep listening to Yoann over and over.
Let the day begin from Black Rebel Motorcycle's 7th album Spectator at the Feast
This is the album I purchased at Record Store Day but haven't been able to listen to it - the cd player in my car is located in the trunk, which I am currently locked out of. And my mini-laptop doesn't have a cd load, and my stereo is in storage, and my partners laptop got purchased after she died 4/2/13. Oh yes, this is why I am so behind on my blogging, forgive me. HOWEVER, when I DO get to finally let loose to the Black Rebel Motorcycle band, the wait will be worth it I am sure. They are a 'garage rock' band, formed in 1998 in San Francisco. They got their name from the movie The Wild One, with Marlon Brando who was in said name 'gang'. Sweet.
On my own from Low's 10th album The Invisible Way
From Minnesota, this slowcore band debuted back in 1993. I wanted to see them at the Mississippi Studios 4/5 but it was too soon for me to want to go anywhere. Total chill and lowkey, harmonious vocals and will definately be downloading. Hopefully I wont drive off the road listening to them in a transcendent haze... Please listen to the linked video - great guitar riffs.
These Times from Walk off the Earth's 3rd album REVO LP
From Canada, this indie rock band started in 2006. I love this song. I pretty much could sing this song every day right now. With an added FUCK YOU after. Hey, I just don't want it enough I guess.
Still Moving from Marnie Stern's 4th album The Chronicles of Marnia
Love this title, Marnie. Made me laugh. Thank you. True to the mathrock genre, its like skatting punk garage indie pop rock, a little whiney and all over the place for me. Sorry Marnie I missed you at Mississippi Studios 4/26 on purpose.
Sir Patrick Spens from Anais Mitchel and Jefferson Hamer's collaboration Child Ballad
Francis James Child was a folklorist from the 1800's, and this album is a collection of his work by two modern folk artists. Anais is known today as the Queen of Modern Folk Music. Instrumentally stunning folk.
Terror in the Canyons from Phosphorescent's 6th album Muchacho
This Georgia Peach Matthew Houck started his indie rock career in 2001. The lyrics tear my heart out (what is left of it) but the brass section and the twang from Matthew's voice puts me at ease.
It's always comforting to know you aren't the only one suffering, isn't it. I'll be downloading this track for sure.
Keep it to yourself from Kacey Musgraves 4th album Same Trailer Different Park
Miss Texan started in 199, country style. She was nominated for several ACM awards this year, which is always encouraging when you have co-wrote the album like she did. Not my favorite country album, it takes a special soul to draw me down the country trail. Really I only picked this track because I am sick of having to keep things to myself. I am working on that little flaw...
