Local Natives - Wide Eyes

…Although recorded in late 2008, Gorilla Manor wasn’t released until 14 months later, allowing Local Natives the chance to build a strong blog buzz before their debut hit American shores.  The delay wasn’t entirely beneficial, however, as Gorilla Manor sounds quite similar to a number of albums that flourished in the interim.  Local Natives’ sunny harmonies call to mind Fleet Foxes’ debut and Grizzly Bear’s Veckatimest, while the band’s polyphonic hand percussion — which, at its most frenzied, is almost tribal sounding — evokes memories of Yeasayer’s All Hour Cymbals.  For all its familiarity, though, Local Natives’ first album is still an enjoyable piece of work, filled with enough pop melodies and multi-cultural quirks to make the year-long holdup worthwhile.  Local Natives may have arrived several months late for their own party, but Gorilla Manor is a refreshing example of good quality trumping bad timing.

A dirty little love song.

The fuzzy guitar with the “shoo-wahs” makes me smile.

The Black Keys - Next Girl

The look of the cake, it ain’t always the taste. 
My X girl she has such a beautiful face.
I wanted love, but not for myself.

But for the girl, so she could love herself.

Oh my next girl, will be nothing like my X girl.
I made mistakes back then, I’ll never do it again.
Oh my next girl, she’ll be nothing like my X girl.
It was a painful dance,
and now I got a second chance.

John Boutté – Treme Song

I got hooked on this show over the weekend. From the creators of The Wire, Treme is about a group of musicians and other folks living in the Treme neighborhood of post-Katrina New Orleans. This John Boutté tune is the show’s theme song. The music featured in every episode of Treme alone is reason enough to watch.

You can follow this tumblelog to hear some of the Songs From Treme: http://songsfromtreme.tumblr.com/
