I can't make up for months of blogger's block with one post, but here's a start...
- Chairlift - Bruises
This is the catchy song from that iPod nano commercial. The album is decent, but "Bruises" and "Evident Utensil" are clearly the standouts.
- In other good news: New Metric: Metric - Help, I'm Alive!
Scroll down. Hopefully the sendspace link is still active.
- Love Is All - Wishing Well
Another song I can't get enough of. Sounds like the Pogues meets the Yeah Yeah Yeahs on speed. Apparently, Swedes can do punk as well as they do pop. 'A Hundred Things Keep Me Up At Night' is one of my favorite albums of the year.
- Hello Seahorse! - Won't Say Anything
This feel-good tune reminds me of summer, a season that comes and goes too soon in Chicago, if you ask me. This up and coming band hails from Mexico City and their forthcoming album is out this month: 'Hoy a Las Ocho'.
