Every week, mystery shopper, former A&R savant and grizzly bear wrestler Tragic Josh is let out of his basement cell for a day to scour the Internets for the best music out there. We then distill this extract into a fine paste which we spread over the MusicZeitgeist.com canvas so that you can reap the benefits.
Here is the list for the week of January 22nd, 2010, which in no way makes this dated, now or ever. Enjoy the music, support musicians every way you can. Compensation, purchases, attending live shows, all help.
1. Alcoholic Faith Mission – Nut In Your Eye
Not sure about the vocals, but the rest is gorgeous
2. Fyfe Dangerfield – She Needs Me (monarchy remix)
3. Hungry Villagers – Tree Full of Ghosts
4. The Rocket Boys – Like Ice in Water
A little flimsy, but there's something about it that I keep coming back to. And I just like the video coz it's cool!
5. The Soft Pack – Answer to Yourself
Nothing ground-breaking, but just crisp and clean and pure.
6. White Hinterland – Icarus
7. Tanlines – Real Life
8. The Shivers – Beauty
9. Glasser – Apply (Tanlines Remix)
10. Silver Pines – Time Father
11. The Sweet Serenades – Mona Lee
12. Grasscut – Muppet (Nathan Fake remix)
Gritty as shit. Ethereal too.
