'year of hibernation' by Youth Lagoon
'heartbreaking bravery' by Moonface
I did like it, as I recall (link to my end of 2011 post)
Moonface, I think Jagjaguwar sent me another release by them. Organ Music, Not Vibraphone As I Had Hoped. I thought it was okay but I will try to get hold of the one you mentioned and give a listen.
Thanks, I always enjoy checking out your recommendations.
The newer Moonface is much more straight forward rock, recorded by Spencer Krug and a band he met while touring in Finlland called 'Sinaii', so I think technically it's 'Moonface: with Sinaii'. I personally loved 'Vibraphone' but I have a man crush on Krug and that's me. But the newer one is way different.
Most of my list almost exactly matches Pfk's #'s 10-5, I can't get into their top 4 (Tame Impala, Fiona, Ocean, Lamar). Really stuck on "the seer" right now, so good.
That 1920s dixieland stuff is quite sing-a-long-able.
You're going on a long trip. This has a lot of songs.
Check out this blog - nothing but music recs. No modern country and not much hip hop. But everything else you mentioned. Lots of free downloads available.
Hope your drive goes well. Done it several times.
Cornershop "Good to be on the Road Back Home Again"
Angie Heaton "Train"
Jason Collett "Bitter Beauty"
Most of my tastes run towards the power pop end of the rock & roll genre, so I give you...
The Lolas "Fox on the Run"
The Lolas "Silver Dollar Sunday"
Mark Kleiner Power Trio "Beautiful Slide"
The Shazam "Calling Sydney"
The Shazam "RU Receiving"
Hans is a madman - they opened for GbV here once and Bob made Hans come up and sing with them. Great power pop band.
The conversation is more engaging than just music, and this is coming from somebody who loves music.
If you are looking for music, there was a mini Best of 2012 thread below yesterday.
And podcasts are a great idea, thank you.
