[i know, i know. i haven’t quite held up my bargain and promise of posting weekly music faves. sorry ’bout that. i promise to try harder. but until my desire turns to actual doing, here are 5 to fill the void.]
this week’s tunes are all brand spankin’ new. well, “new” in the truest sense to me, meaning my ears have never been privy to the sound. each tune made the cut just because the combo of lyrics and sound struck a chord with me. either that or i was just in the mood. whatever the rhyme or reason, i hope you enjoy.
(these first 2 hail from austin, giving me yet another reason to love the crap out of that city.)
brazos :: day glo
cannot get enough of this one. might even be so bold as to say it’s my favorite of the 5.
ola podrida :: this old world
best coast :: when i’m with you
“when i’m with you / i have fun”
vampire weekend :: horchata
i’ve found these guys invoke extreme feelings of adoration or disdain from music lovers. admittedly, it took me a couple listens to enjoy “horchata,” but i’m still drinking the VW kool-aid. and love ’em or hate ’em, they put out a new album, hence the addition to this week’s list.
rogue wave :: good morning
