Tragic Josh Shares His Top Twelve Music Spins For the Week of March 8th 2010

Tragic Josh sprays rainbows of musical beauty over the disenfranchised youth of today. Come revel in the glory of his select aural spectrum of love.

1. Bowerbirds – Ghost Life

Just a really lovely song that'll keep you till the end. much to your surprise.

2. Electric President – The Violent Blue

I can't honestly say that I think this dude is the best advert for this band, but I do like this song. It takes it's time and knows how to carry it's momentum. The last third is probably the best.

3. White Birch – The New Kingdom

These guys are incredible. But apparently all Norwegians sound like Erlend Oye.

4. Vic Chestnutt – I Flirted With You All My Life

Never really heard much of his stuff, bought an album once but was kinda disappointed, but this is just a beautiful song.

5. The Antlers – Atrophy

I'm sure you're all aware of these guys so this really isn't news to anyone but myself. I overlooked them amidst all their hype, but have recently come to appreciate what a wonderful record they produced thanks to a number of other blogs. An old dog can in fact learn new tricks after all.

8. First Rate People – Girl’s Night

Infectious and fun, just what pop should be like.

9. Herb Albert – Rotation (DJ Harri Edit)

Old school brilliance. This was what Ibiza used to be about.

10. Cold Mountain Child – Of Self

Something reminiscent of classic Dire Straits. OK, and a fair chunk of Iron and Wine as well!

11. Spirit Spine – Enchanted Island

Incredibly simple and sparse. and short. too short. but that's good.

12. Liars – No Barrier Fun

Great vocals, and a fantastic arrangement. Love the beat and the cello.
