I should be sleeping, but I'm not. So here's a dig list.
Dark Was The Night
Ok, what can I say but this is amazing. Like, absolutely brilliant. To have just a taste of the best flavors of indie out there, I'm head over heals.
|2||The Sawtooth Grin|
Ok, so I don't listen to much Grind, but The Sawtooth Grin are sick. It's really technical, spazzy grind, maybe lacking in substance but makes up for it by just being in your face and awesome.
|3||The New Pornographers|
Can't believe I waited this long to pick this up, Twin Cinema is just euphorically upbeat and lovable indie rock that you can't not like.
|4||My Brightest Diamond|
Bring Me The Workhorse
Singer/Songwriter, dark, sprawling expositions, Sharna Worden will drag you deep, and it's a beautiful place to be.
Ex-The New Pornographers singer Neko Cake's solo outing. Increadby solid folky acoustic sounds, Neko knows how to write a song and keep you in it.
It's Dan Deacon, except even warmer and more brilliant.
The Hazards Of Love
I really like what the Decemberists have done here, taken a turn to a more folky, acoustic sound and everything here seems a little bit more down to earth and laid back - even if they've lost a bit of their distinctiveness along the way.
|8||Anatomy Of A Ghost|
Post-Hardcore brilliance, so glad I picked this up, these guys sound The Trophy Scars, but heaps better. They broke up in 03 and went on to form Portugal. The Man.
Despite my swipe at the scars above, this is MUCH better than I expected, the band just seem so much more in step and focused than any of their previous outings.
Imagine if Kid A was hopeful. But still brilliantly textured, warmly electronic and absorbing. This is Karoshi.
Lo Fi acousitc indie, hell yea! For any fans of The Microphones or Iron And Wine, Smog's Knock Knock is a quirky, intimate and ultimately beautiful exposition of what a man, a guitar and some vision can do.
Go to this site. Listen to Postcard. It is the best song in the world. ever. ever. ever.
