tuesday tunes.

June 2, 2009

Thought I’d bring you a favorite indie band every Tuesday. Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m music obsessed…so I feel the need to do more than just twitter about what I’ve been listening to!

My newest fave is Fanfarlo. Love them. My new favorite band. Hope you enjoy! {ps…they have more great videos on their site!}

heavy rotation.

Holly from Decor 8 blog suggested that fellow bloggers post what music they are listening to, then link back and maybe find common ground or some new tunes! I’m all over this. Anyone who knows me is WELL AWARE of my music obsession. So, here goes {in no particular order}:

I love the poppy goodness that is Ra Ra Riot. Especially the songs “Can You Tell” and “Dying is Fine”. So good {btw, you can download “Dying is Fine” from their site…scroll down a tiny bit…it’s on the right}. It’s in my car’s disk player as we speak.

My favorite album of the year is Alopecia by the band Why? My very favorite songs on the album are “The Vowels Pt. 2” and “The Hollows”. I’ve been playing this over and over for months.

We Were Promised Jetpacks is probably the best band name of all time. I love their music…but have to go to their myspace site to hear it. They are from Glasgow, massively hyped, super young and unsigned. No albums out there that I can find. You can {legitimitely} download “Quiet Little Voices” via KEXP‘s song of the day. Catchy goodness.

Lastly, I’m totally in love with the Watson Twins cover of The Cure’s “Just Like Heaven”. I think I’ve listened to it 20 times in the last couple of days. It’s from their most recent album. You can hear it on their myspace page {One of my favorite music blog reads, Thanks Captain Obvious turned me on to this song}

Oh I could go on…and on…but that’s it for now. Let me know what you think!
