Tragic Josh is back to curate another list of goodness to stuff in your ear and eye holes. The January 14th, 2010 edition.
1. Twin Berlin – Kill this Low
Very Strokes, but very good.
2. Small Black – despicable dogs (washed out remix)
Very 80's Brat Pack. Lovely and blissed out.
3. Angus and Julia Stone – and the boys
Just an incredible voice, otherworldly.
4. Penguin Prison – A Funny Thing
Amazing song, amazing sound, amazing groove. Nice. Been around for a while now, but I had to put it in.
5. Cold War Kids – Audience of One
6. Whitley – Poison in our Pocket
7. Darwin Deez – Bad Day
This is just really fun and imaginative, keeps you guessing.
8. Pixie Carnation – When Did the Lights Go Out
9. Hockey Night – Rebel Fever (Who We Are)
Apparently they've already broken up and become free energy. Just goes to show how quick I am.
10. Lee and Willbee – Love’s Not Worth It
11. The Da Vincis – Paper Planes
I really think this is a genius cover version, it removes all the elements of MIA's original that takes herself SO seriously, and just keeps the joyous and bouncy feel. It makes you laugh too.
12. Lixian Hantover – Rachel’s new apartment
Beautiful voice. This song has really just stuck to me, can't get rid of it. No mean feat.
