Little Talks: Of Monsters And Men - I'm right into this song as soon as it starts; quick and then a duet. Kinda feels like the Pogues. The woman singing reminds me of Kate Nash a bit. I love the horns. Leaves me doin' a dance in my chair.
Rebel Ghost: Jeremy Lee Given - This song is pretty laid back and I think it's depressing, but it is more of a sauntering, lazy kind of depressing which is just more relaxed and okay with the situation I figure.
Sentimental: Millionyoung - This song inspired me to actually purchase the album. I'm not disappointed so far. I like the opening and who can argue with a drum machine? That's what I thought.
Shutter Speed: Little Light - Her voice captures me in the first note and the tabbed guitar.
Skinny Ghost: Happy Trendy - I love the 'shhh, shhh' straight away. I'm more relaxed now then when the song first started. I have to be honest - this is song is much more depressing than I'm normally drawn to. I wonder if it's the electronic beats.
Texico Bitches (Star Slinger Remix): Broken Social Scene - Well, the original is awesome and now I'm totally loving the Star Slinger Remix. I'm right lovin' the electronic mixes. Now I just have to get the young people I work with to give it a try - I'm sure they'll love it.
We: The Shout Aways - The video below is for a different song. Now, this is the type of song I find myself drawn to time and again. So good. It sounds and feels nostalgic to a band I used to listen to quite a few years ago, but I can't find the name in my memory bank at the moment. I wonder if it's 'Sugar'?
We Come Out At Night: Snake! Snake! Snakes! - The drums catch me and then his voice raises the bar of intrigue and before I knew it, I was rockin' out to Snake! Snake! Snakes!
Wise People: Lemuria - Now this is a good song. I love female lead vocals. I feel stronger as a woman when I hear music like this. I know, I know, it's only a song and all that jazz (well, you know what I mean) but that's the point - getting out there and having a voice "...and I certainly matter."
Zodiac Name: Shake The Baron - High hat and drums, leg shakin' and singing along. I nub it. The only problem I have in the song is the "You make me feel" lyrics since no one can make you feel anything. I guess anything but a drum beat! haha! Maybe they were on with that one and I'm mistaken.
