MP3s of the Moment!

As my inaugural post, I offer the following:
Blind Pilot - One Red Thread
Sparse and luxurious at the same time, this duo from Portland makes music that sounds great over coffee or anytime at all.
The Weepies - Orbiting
Husband and wife singer/songwriters from Southern California, destined for high rotation on the iPods of indy-lovers everywhere.

Like so many of the best mash-ups, it doesn't work on paper at all but when you play it, it's a match made in heaven.
DJ Zebra's "Roxanne Should Be Dancing", Brat's "Easy Heaven", and DJ Schmolli's "Justice For Billie Jean" are also a lot of fun.

Damien Jurado has a new album -- Saint Bartlett -- coming out in May, and Stereogum has the first MP3 from it. I like it: it sounds like some longlost 50's sockhop anthem as covered by Jurado. Which means that, for all of its poppy-ness, there's a sort of nostalgic, antiquated melancholy to it as well.
I was pretty sure Damien Jurado had lost it. After a couple of tepid albums, he seemed to have totally lost steam. But then he released Caught in Trees and sounded revitalized. I remembered why I liked him so much. After listening to "Arkansaw" a few times I believe his hot streak might continue. It's got the Jurado "pop song" feel but Richard Swift's excellent production puts it into a totally different time and place. The 50's comparison is appropriate. I never would have guessed it, but it works like a charm.

You can download the MP3 here or stream it here (and take a gander at it's, um, interesting artwork).

“Other People’s Songs Vol. 1” is a collection of covers recorded on the weekend of August 21-22, 2010 (with the aid of a four-track cassette recorder and a Coles-4038 ribbon microphone). It is available to you (the world) via the inter-webs for FREE. These recordings came about spontaneously, and we wanted to share them in the same manner. Look for another one around Winter time. “Thanks, Brochacho” - DJ/RS

The mp3 is here (depending on your PC, browser and plug ins, you may have to right click to "save video as"--but if you do, it will download right into your computer, which is cool).
There is also a video for another track, entitled "When I Was A Mockingbird" here.

She is definitely not the next big thing, though, that's for sure.
