Top 5 Songs Of The Week (The Storm of 2008 Edition)

Yesterday, it was all over the news about how for the next 36 hours we, in North East Ohio, were going to get *slammed* and we totally rolled our eyes thinking that they were being melodramatic. However, today when we awoke and we walked around our street this is what we saw....
So, needless to say it looks like the storm has arrived after all. . .Lucky for us, we didn't really have any plans for today so we're glad to have a reason (as if we needed one!) to have a few screwdrivers (mmm good and cheap Svedka Vodka), watch a movie (we are finally going to watch Into The Wild) and just hang out. Also, keep your eyes open because we already plan on doing another post later. . .

But before all that, enjoy these excellent Top Five Songs we're currently listening to:

5. {mp3} Galaxie 500 - Listen The Snow is Falling A nice little piece of shoegazer-pop about the weather today from this great, now defunct Boston Band.

4. {mp3} Saint Bernadette - One In A Million Kelly claims this woman possesses the superb essence of Blondie, so definitely check it out for yourself and see if you agree?

3. {mp3} Beach House - Astronaut As we have mentioned before -- this awesome Duo from Baltimore that reminds us of Nico meets Mazzy Star are coming to Cleveland's Grog Shop on March 27th w/ The Papercuts (although we unfortunately won't be in attendance because we will be in Puerto Rico). However, we highly suggest that you should go (and, see them at a show near you) so you can witness their dreamy, ethereal, and warm melodies in person.

2. {mp3} Fleet Foxes - Quite Houses This Washington State based band is bringing their 70s influenced Folk Rock + Baroque style vocals to The Grog Shop on Friday April 4th w/ tour mates Blitzen Trapper and we for one can't wait. This is another band that at first you might say, "this sounds like Band Of Horses," but the more you listen you hear it is clearly Neil Young influenced.

1. {mp3} Elani Mendell - Salt Truck On a day like today a song with lyrics like these "Salt truck, Salt truck after hours, Spinning in the snowflake showers, I want roads I can drive on, I want a friend I can rely on" seems completely appropriate.

ps - Be safe and have a wonderful afternoon!
