We now return to your regularly scheduled blogging.
After a tense week of no hosting, it appears that our original benefactor has green lighted TTIKTDA to resume posting MP3's. That said, we're still a bit edgy, and would love it if some other generous soul were to step forward and share the burden. (Ideally, by August, I'll be providing for myself.)
And without further ado, Tunes!
The Walkmen - The Rat: Off of their newest album, Bows and Arrows, The Rat is one of those songs I can just put on repeat forever. It's combination of anger, resignation, and bitterness is just what the doctor ordered for me, and it doesn't hurt that the song has a sharper hook than I've ever been priveliged to go fishing with.
Broadcast - Color Me In - This song has a lazy, sunny vibe that reminds me of the sort of beautiful spring weather NY has been experiencing of late. The vocals have a sunny quality that brings the music beyond the realm of ordinary electronic music, and gives it a warmer, human feel that makes all the difference.
Broadcast - Pendulum - But this, this is the song that made me fall in love with Broadcast. Where "Color Me In" lazes about, this song SWINGS, with all the energy of a good dancable jazz tune, as singer Trish Keenan wraps that beautiful voice around a beat that begs to be tapped to.
Both of these tracks are off of 2003's Haha Sound an excellent album on Warp Records.
