As we gear up for a super busy Saturday, we wanted to make a point to share these especially excellent Top Five Songs of the Week*
Hope everyone has a lovely day :)
5. (mp3) Pinback - Good To Sea We didn't discover this song until recently when Kelly did (thanks to Tegan & Sara's [music playlist] in last Sunday's New York Times), which is such a catchy slice of guitar pop that will keep you coming back for more. Much to our surprise, this is not the typical pop serving we have come to expect from this atmospheric San Diego based indie rock band.
4. (mp3) Morning Benders - Boarded Doors This is a new jam from this band you may have recalled we posted one of their tracks before. This song comes from their new album, Talking Thru Tin Tans. We both think of Brendan Benson when we hear this Berkley/Oakland based band.
3. (mp3) Calico Horse - Idioteque (Radiohead Cover) This is a great cover from this based San Diego band. Kelly says this makes her think of Azure Ray performing acoustic at a Hawaiian themed party.
2. (mp3) Saxon Shore - Marked with Knowledge This Philly based band "makes instrumental music for people who don't like instrumental music." Think Explosions In The Sky but not as intense.
1. (mp3) Otis Redding - Wonderful World A favorite off the collector's edition, Otis Blue: Otis Redding Sings Soul, given a very rare 10.0 by Pitchfork!
