Vampire Weekend - "Vampire Weekend"

Finally an American band that's not filled with hate or booty.

Guarantee you'll like this one Shawn.

Nice-- I'll check them out. They got a nice write-up in Pitchfork.

For now: "Possession" by Sarah McLachlan.

Edit: Checked them out. Love it!

I've been on a twangy country kick lately. The song I've had on repeat for the past week is Watching Airplanes by Gary Allan. I also discovered a good Ricky Skaggs tune last night while perusing YouTube.

For the last 3 days I've been immersing myself in the new Elbow - "The Seldom Seen Kid".

It is a work of absolute genius. Being a romantic, I especially like the first track, "Starlings".

The record isn't officially released until March 17th.

I absolutely love Elbow! One of my three favorite bands, the other two being Muse and Placebo.

Forgiveness -- Patty Griffin -- Living with Ghosts

We are swimming with the snakes
At the bottom of the well
So silent and peaceful in the darkness where we fell
But we are not snakes and what's more
We never will be
And if we stay swimming here forever we will
Never be free

I heard them ringing the bells
In heaven and hell
They got a secret
They're getting ready to tell
It's falling from the sky
Calling from the graves
Open your eyes, boy, I think we are saved
Open your eyes, boy, I think we are saved
Let's take a walk on the bridge
Right over this mess
Don't need to tell me a thing, baby
We've already confessed
And I raised my voice to the air
And we were blessed
Everybody needs a little forgiveness
Everybody needs a little forgiveness

We are calling for him tonight on this
Thin phone line
As usual we're having ourselves one
hell of a time
And the planes keep flying right over our heads
No matter how lond we shout
"Hey, hey, hey !"
And we keep waving and waving
Our arms in the air
But we're all tired out

I heard somebody say
Today's the day
A big old hurricaine
Is blowing our way
Knocking over the buildings
Killing all the light
Open your eyes, boy, we made it through the night
Open your eyes, boy, we made it through the night
Let's take a walk on the bridge
Right over this mess
Don't need to tell me a thing, baby
We've already confessed
And I raised my voice to the air
And we were blessed
Everybody needs a little forgiveness
Everybody needs a little forgiveness

Lakeside Park -- Rush -- All The World's A Stage

...for all those Rush denouncers and you know who you are.

Midway hawkers calling
"Try your luck with me;"
Merry-go-round wheezing
The same old melody
A thousand ten cent wonders
Who could ask for more
A pocketful of silver
The key to heaven's door

Lakeside Park
Willows in the breeze
Lakeside Park
So many memories
Laughing rides
Midway lights
Shining stars on summer nights

Days of barefoot freedom
Racing with the waves
Nights of starlit secrets
Crackling driftwood flames
Drinking by the lighthouse
Smoking on the pier
Still we saw the magic
Was fading every year

Everyone would gather
On the twenty-fourth of May
Sitting in the sand
To watch the fireworks display.
Dancing fires on the beach,
Singing songs together...
Though it's just a memory,
Some memories last forever.

I really like Mobius Band's cover of The National's Baby We'll Be Fine, available here as a free download: http://www.mobiusband.com/vday/. The National's Boxer is cool, especially Fake Empire. Their lead singer's been compared to Joy Division's Ian Curtis. Something about them reminds me of early Patti Smith, also Bruce Springsteen. Am I crazy? Vampire Weekend is catchy, but I think they're the media hype of the moment. (I'll be curious to see where they are a year or 2 from now.) If Palomar's volcals were a bit more forward I'd have them at the top of my list. You can listen to Our Haunt on their label's website (Misra, same label Mobius Band is on).

I found a version of Some Velvet Morning by Primal Scream and Kate Moss on the net, in a blog that appeared after Lee Hazelwood's death. I think it's on a CD somewhere. I love it...

Yeah I agree, this Portishead record is kind of a letdown after the last one. Nothing that really sticks out on first five listens as incredible like "Cowboys"...

Now listening to MGMT - Oracular Spectacular.

They sound a lot like the Thrills, but I don't like them as much... and I rarely listen to the Thrills...

Another one that will go on the back burner.

"Carolina Drama" -The Raconteurs

This song will sound awesome live. Not one of their harder rockers, but definitely a lot of attitude.

Think a darker, piano-less, full-band version of "The Denial Twist."

Also, characteristic of Jack White, a thesis statement for the band in the lyrics:

I’m not sure if there’s a point to this story
But I’m going to tell it again
So many other people try to tell the tale
Not one of them knows the end

One thing about me is that I'm pretty damn near hearing impaired (bisensoneural, not because of too many run-ins with ghettoblasters, although that story would be more fun to tell, if just so I could use the word "ghettoblaster.") Looking through my music library, that seems to be borne out in a whole collection of indie rock, that is, very loud music.

So yesterday I decided to spend some cash on decent headphones (Bose Triport Around-the-Ear). It's amazing what I can hear now. (Guitar "plucks" make a sound when it strikes the string? What the heck. What are all these other sounds doing in my music?). So, anyway, I'm finding low-key music a lot more interesting than I ever had before. Problem is, I just don't have any! I've had Ryan Adams, Feist, and Iron & Wine on repeat.

Can anyone recommend any great, low-key "headphones" type albums?

This "hearing" thing is pretty cool...

It would be great if everyone started their own Muxtape and updated it with what they're currently listening to.
