It’s Monday and we have a mish mash of streams, mp3 links, and videos from Andrew Bird, Dana Falconberry, The Eversons, Letting Up Despite Great Faults, Miike Snow, Beth Orton, Pack a.d., and Sigur Ros.
Andrew Bird – “Three White Horses”
from Hands of Glory
out October 30 on Mom + Pop
Hands of Glory is a musical companion to Break It To Yourself. Bird has hit his stride and it continues with this release. “Three White Horses” includes a lovely saw melody, quiet guitars, and Bird’s measured vocals.
The Eversons – “Terminally Lame”
from Summer Feeling
out now on Lil’ Chief Records
The boys from NZ are back with another video. Full of cheeky behavior as expected. This is out as a pay-what-you-want (they’re advertising as free) single b/w “Harlot” on Bandcamp.
Dana Falconberry – “Lake Charlevoix”
out October 9 on Antenna Farm Records
Falconberry’s delicate vocals stand in contrast to beautiful pop melodies on “Lake Charlevoix.” Leelanau is her debut release and its title comes from her family retreats on the peninsula of the same name in northern Michigan.
Letting Up Despite the Great Faults – “Visions”
out October 9 pre-order through Bandcamp
Untogether promises to tickle the fancy of those who favor the indie pop sounds of the mid to late 80s. Especially those fans of the C-86 era. The available previews (click here) confirm this claim.
Miike Snow – “Pretender”
from Happy To You
out now on Downtown Records
The Jean Noel (he looks a bit like Gerard Depardieu) character returns, attending a concert bare-chested and obviously bemused.
Beth Orton – “Magpie”
from Sugaring Season
out TODAY on Anti-records
We’re absolutely looking forward to this new album. “Magpie” does not disappoint. It’s a very strong lead from Ms. Orton. Welcome back, Beth!
The Pack a.d. – “Sirens”
out now on Mint
What a great video! I hope this never happens to me.
Sigur Rós - “Ekki múkk”
out now on Parlaphone
This video is taken from the “Valtari mystery film experiment.” It is absolutely breathtaking.
