tuesday tunes…for a good cause.

April 27, 2010

I haven’t posted a “tuesday tunes” in a while…but I heard this single by Regina Spektor on Stereogum, and loved it! It’s a Radiohead cover {one of my all-time-favorite bands}…and  the BEST PART is that the net proceeds from the sale of the single goes to the Emergency Relief Fund of the international humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders. To purchase, go to: http://bit.ly/dcv4dA

tuesday’s tunes.

June 9, 2009

I love the internet. Here’s how I found this song {it’s a couple of years old, but I had never heard it}:

Last week I had a gal named Amanda Donaho follow me on Twitter…so I went to her site to check it out {she’s a photographer based in Ohio}. As I was perusing her great portfolio, the song, Trouble by an Ohio band, Over the Rhine came on. Usually music on a website is a bit of a peeve of mine, because it usually interferes with what I’m already playing…but I just couldn’t seem to get enough of this little tune. I haven’t listened to any more of their music…but if you like it and want to know more, here’s Over the Rhine’s website {click the little record player option on the right, and you can listen}.

my 2008 album faves.

Here are my picks for music that are SO last year:

• My VERY favorite album is by TV on the Radio and their album Dear Science. Couldn’t get enough of this. Here’s a link to their video Providence.

• Next in line is Noah and the Whale’s album Peaceful, the World Lays Me Down {even though I’m REALLY bummed to hear their song on a Saturn commercial…that’s usually is a deal-breaker for me}. Here’s a link to a video of their song “Shape of my Heart”.

• Next is The Heavy and Great Vengeance and Furious Fire. I listened to this disk for about 3 months straight. Here’s a vid:

• Next is Helio Sequence and Keep Your Eyes Ahead. This is one of my favorite songs:

• Vampire Weekend’s self titled album is my next fave. What I love even more than their poppy music is their 80’s garb. They personify geek chic. Here’s a video:

Because I need to stop at some point, I’ll just leave it at my top 5. Though, I was also loving Lykke Li, Frightened Rabbit, Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson, The Dodos, Why?, and last-but-not-least Flight of the Conchords {hilarious EVERY time I listen}.

So there you have it. Let me know what you think!

a little mixtape for you.
