Band Of Horses - On My Way Back Home
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.
The Black Keys - Howlin’ For You.
Have a dirty little Monday.
Eddie Bo - The Hook and Sling
The Black Keys - Everlasting Light.
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.
