My Morning Jacket

MP3: My Morning Jacket - Dondante (live)

Today's entry has a song from the new live My Morning Jacket record. It's a big file so be patient, but holy fucking fuck is it great. They just made an amazing song just so much more. I was a little bummed that "The Bear" isn't on the 2-disc set but oh well. It's plenty fantastic.

I'm From Barcelona

I'm From Barcelona - We're From Barcelona

This entries' song is from I'm From Barcelona, a bunch of Swedes that my friend (and Swedish music provider) Matt got me into. I've been digging on this track for awhile and sending it to everyone ever, and now it's your turn. Enjoy.

The Only Children

MP3: The Only Children - Mr Paige

Today's mp3 is a b-side from The Only Children. Well, it turned up as an a-side on a 45 they did for Art of the Underground, but it was a jam that was recorded during the "Change Of Living" sessions but didn't make that record. It's one of my favourites from them and I wish this band would get bigger because I love what they're doing.

Kyle Fischer

MP3: Kyle Fischer - Just One More Day

I discovered this song on the 2003 Polyvinyl sampler. I still don't own the actual record it's on, but Kyle Fischer's "Just One More Day" is such a fantastic song. It features fellow Rainer Maria bandmate Caithlin De Marrais on vocals and comes off as pining in both lyrics and voice (that's a good thing). It hits me hard everytime I hear it.

Archers of Loaf

Today's track is from one of the greatest groups ever: Archers of Loaf. While I was too young to grow up listening to them, the bands I loved in high school would always credit them, so I was aware. Once American Nightmare (called Give Up the Ghost at this point) covered "You and Me" on the Love American single, I had a huge urge to research AOL.

I like this song a lot. The line "this isn't fun anymore" is one of the most striking lyrics I've ever heard in my lifetime.

The Feverfew

MP3: The Feverfew - Heaven

Today's song is from my friend Bethany. It's a Talking Heads cover. Call me crazy (and I know you will seeing as this is a bold thing to say), but I dig it way more than the original. Enjoy.

M. Ward

M. Ward - Let's Dance

It's really felt like Portland the past couple of days. Lots of rain. But it was nice to drive in honestly. I don't mean on I's 205/84/26/blah but around the city. Downtown, SE back to NE, whatev. It made me want to listen to M. Ward, so I did and that's why you have the current mp3 I'm offering with today's blog. It's a David Bowie cover and probably one of my favourite songs Matty has done. Usually I need to be in the mood for him (like rain) but that tune always does it for me. Summer 2005 it was on most every mix cd I made.

Cat Power

Cat Power - Dreams

My friend Dave hooked me up with the newest Cat Power record last month when I was home for Christmas. I'm not the biggest fan (always have been close to jumping on) but I heard the opener, the title track, and I was hooked. It's sad and upbeat and her voice really shines on this record.

Plus the artwork is great, I mean c'mon, what else could an album called "The Greatest" look like?

Today's mp3 comes from the Japanese version of the record, a cover of the song "All I Have to Do Is Dream". Enjoy!
