Just need to rattle off some new things you should be listening to since I just got back from a trip to Florida:
Arcade Fire - Sprawl II from the new album The Suburbs: Everything I have heard from this album so far has been great . Looks like Arcade Fire knock it out of the park again. For this track all I can say is "once I was in love and it was a gas;" in slo-mo. Here are 2 more tracks I just found from the album also:
Arcade Fire - We Used To Wait
Arcade Fire - Rococo
Best Coast - When I'm With You from the album Crazy ForYou: Been out for a couple weeks but it is a great summer soundtrack. I must have listened to this track about 20 times on my week long trip to FLA. My wife also digs it so they get 2 votes in the like category. Here is another Best Coast track, a remix:
Best Coast - Boyfriend (Ghostwaves Edit)
Menomena - TAOS from the album Mines: This album almost didn't happen - the band was fighting, they were doing other projects, and getting divorces. I'm glad they pulled it together because I loved their last one Fried or Foe.
Ra Ra Riot - Boy from soon to be released album the Orchard
Jens Lekman - The End of the World Is Bigger Than Love one of my favorite song writers, even though he crones a little too much.
I'm off now to go and listen to the new Arcade Fire, just got it from http://www.amazon.com/ for $3.99!
