February was an excellent month for music! My normal 5 for [insert month here] playlist got a little out of control due to the amount of quality releases, so I made a playlist over on the youtubes. It includes:
"Better Than" - Lake Street Dive
"The Body Electric" - Hurray For The Riff Raff
"Long Time Gone" - Billie Joe + Norah Jones
"Good Intentions" - Robert Ellis
"Olivia" - Rayland Baxter
"I’m Torn Up" - St. Paul & The Broken Bones
"Everything’s Gonna Be Undone" - Band of Horses
"Morning" - Beck
"No Country" - The Jezabels
"Past Life" - Lost In The Trees
"Shelter Song" - Temples
"Cavalier" - James Vincent McMorrow
"Prince Johnny" - St. Vincent
"Everybody’s Got A Banjo" - The Defibulators
As always, go hit up your local record store if any of these strike your fancy. Or find ‘em on iTunes (or Amazon if iTunes ain’t your thing). And the best option of all, go see the bands on tour and throw your money at their merch table!
If for some reason you still don’t own Band of Horses’ Acoustic at The Ryman record you need to fix that right away. KEXP just posted BOH’s fantastic session this week, I highly suggest checking that out too.
well, this is awesome.
Sharon Van Etten’s got a new album (Are We There) out in May! YES.
Don’t Wait Too Long - Erma Franklin (Don’t Wait Too Long / Time After Time, 1962)
The Apache Relay’s new self titled record comes out April 22nd, but if you’re not wanting to wait to hear new music from them, go pre-order the album on iTunes and get “Katie Queen Of Tennessee” right away!
