There’s not a whole lot that interests me in this week’s spankin’ new list. I thought I might dig the Sleigh Bells release, until I saw them on SNL. Meh.
Cheap Girls – Giant Orange – You can preview the entire thing here.
Damien Jurado – Maraqopa – The song Nothing Is the News, starts off sounding like typical Damien Jurado, but then it gets interesting when the Santana-like guitar kicks in. Listen here. Very nice.
Frankie Rose – Interstellar – The track, Interstellar, takes a minute to get going, but this is very poppy and energetic. Listen here.
Fun. – Some Nights – Preview the entire thing here. Everyone’s into the cut, We Are Young, but I love the title cut, Some Nights.
Lambchop – Mr. M – First listen on NPR, here. Whoa, it’s their 11th album.
Sinead O’Connor – How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?
Tindersticks –The Something Rain – Free download of the song, Frozen, at their site. It’s the kind of moody-atmospheric tune I like to unwind to, without putting me to sleep.
Here’s to some great treats for your ears this week.
