Top 5 Songs of The Week (Hello December?)
So December is upon us here again. On this particular Saturday even though it is cold and suppose to snow today there is plenty to see and do like Bazaar Bizaare, Murray Hill Art Walk, CIA Faculty Exhbition. Once you are down braving the cold might we suggest you crack open a bottle of wine or beer and listen to our a selections for this week,
5. (mp3) Chromatics - I'm On Fire (Bruce Spingsteen Cover) This Portland trio make this song their own but at the same time keep it very close to the original albeit with female vocals.
4. (mp3) Say Hi - Shakes Her Shoulders This is the new effort from Eric Elbogen he used to go by the name of Say Hi To Your Mom (which we always felt was a pretty entertaining name). His new album The Wishes and The Glitch comes out in Feb. We really like the warm vocals, hand claps and the way the energy builds in the chorus.
3. (mp3) Underwater Tea Party - The Untold Story of Mary & Nick This 5 piece band hail from Madrid, Spain. They make music that you can either end or begin your day with because their sound is comforting yet whimsical and @ the same time gently energizing.
2. (mp3) Joy Zipper - Wave of Mutilation (Pixies Cover) this track is off of the complation Dig For Fire yet tribute to The Pixies but this one has much better bands than you've heard cover The Pixies before which includes: The Rosebuds, British Sea Power and Mogwai to name a few.
1. (mp3) Jose Gonzalez - Down The Line (Live on KEXP) We are both super excited for his show this coming Tuesday @ The Grog with Cass McCombs and local favorite Brian Straw. This song comes from his new album "In Our Nature"out now.
