Braids – Native Speaker (2o11).
Saw these dudettes and dudes last month with
Baths. They put on a great show. And the album is great too. Kinda like a better version of Yeasayer.
This is the first song on the album. It’s called “Lemonade”
here they are performing it live:
David Sandstrom’s 2000 album, Om Det Inte Hander Nat Innan Imorgon Sa Kommer Jag. I had a hard time choosing a song to share, cuz they’re all epic. Seriously.
This is “Nar Hjartat Svider”
Here’s David and
Frida Hyvonen performing some songs from a different album:
Trans Am’s , from 2010. Listen to it. Fabulous album. Dirty. Dancey. Noisy. Thing
This song is called “Naked Singularity”
Here they are destroying some shit live:
I’ve been listening to
by Second Coming The Stone Roses quite a bit. Like Trans Am, these are some sexy songs. However, they’re actually nothing like Trans Am.
This was their comeback single, “Love Spreads”. The guitar is brutal.
and I couldn’t find a good version of this live, so here’s the video:
1 and 2. and other recommendations.

Struggling to keep my new year’s resolution.
Part 1 is
Okay. I promise to put at least
one 2011 album in each of these recommendation posts. Here it is:
Jonathan Richman’s . More of the same from this beautiful man. Which is a good thing. What else would you want? O Moon, Queen of Night on Earth
Here’s a song about poseurs. It’s called “My Affected Accent”.
and here he is performing it live:
You guys have listened to
The xx’s self-titled album, right? Well I hadn’t. Whoops. It’s good.
This is “Basic Space”. Love the rhythms.
Here’s a classic that I’d never listened to.
Nina Simone’s . Finest Hour
Although it sounds like a musical at times, “Mississippi Goddam” is brutal. So much passion/emotion. Very real.
And I’m gonna throw in a classic that’s been getting a lot of play.
Lifter Puller’s Soft Rock [disc 1]. This is a collection of everything except their last album.
The song’s called “Viceburgh”…
tiger can’t talk he’s got shoes to shine, said it’s pretty dry
we could try the guy up on first and fifty-ninth if he’s still alive
the callgirl stalls and lets her voicemail take it
she says hey i ain’t here besides i quit that business
the door was locked so we knocked on the next one
and here’s this guy he’s got a bullet-proof vest on
