Now this is more like it

Another new Death Cab...I definitely prefer it to "Soul Meets Body."

Death Cab for Cutie - Marching Bands of Manhattan (expired)
Let me know what you think!

This just makes me miss NYC more, but hopefully I will be there in less than a month!

News bulletin!

It will be my birthday in exactly two weeks (that's August 9 for you people that have trouble with calendars).

I know that lately it seems like all the mp3s I'm putting up are Sufjan, but I keep coming across interesting live performances from him.

Sufjan Stevens - The One I Love (REM cover)

Sufjan Stevens - Opie's Funeral Song

Sufjan Stevens - Vito's Ordination Song

I enjoy his little introductions to the songs.

Monday Monday!

Ah, Monday morning...a time of new beginnings, new work, and new music. Now that I've had my morning yogurt and Propel fitness water, I'm ready to greet the feels like it is going to be a good one. And do I have some stuff for you today.


Death Cab - Soul Meets Body

On first listen, I like it although it feels more produced than previous songs.

Some live Sufjan stuff...

Sufjan Stevens - The 50 States Song
This song from a performance at Lee's Palace in Toronto is probably the closest we are going to get to an Alabama album for a while. I'm having flashbacks to grade school geography classes. God bless America.

Sufjan Stevens - The Star Spangled Banner
Another song from Sufjan's show at Lee's Palace. You might recognize it, although he has changed some words around.

An Interview from KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic

A couple of songs from the KCRW performance
A Good Man is Hard to Find
John Wayne Gacy Jr.
The Man of Metropolis Steals Our Hearts

Watch the performance here!

Some other stuff...

The Mountain Goats - Golden Jackal Song

Imogen Heap - Just for Now
Sounds more like Frou Frou than "Hide and Seek" does.

Don't ever say I do nothing for you.

I saw Maria Taylor (from Azure Ray) with the Statistics and Taylor Hollingsworth last night with Blake. It was a great show and the Nick was pretty packed. It was my second time to see the Statistics, the first time to see Maria Taylor as a solo act, and the first time to see Taylor Hollingsworth. Taylor Hollingsworth looks like he is 14 years old, and he definitely doesn't look old enough to be drinking that PBR.

I bought 11:11, Maria's newest release...I've been listening to it all day. Really beautiful songs.

Now some mp3's!

Maria Taylor - Leap Year favorite from the album.

Maria Taylor - Speak Easy

Listening Too Long to One Song

In response to my own post about listening to one song over and over..."Sing Me Spanish Techno" from The New Pornographers upcoming Twin Cinema.

The New Pornographers - Sing Me Spanish Techno

Man, that's a catchy chorus.

Matador also has the title track on their website.

There will be feasting and dancing in Jerusalem next year

I can't stop listening to this song. Listen to it, you (probably) won't regret it.

The Mountain Goats - This Year
