Down By Law, "The Last Brigade"
Does it seem like Five Songs has been kinda punk lately? I think we've been kinda punk. No objections here!
We Were Promised Jetpacks, "Conductor"
Part of the indie rock underground, We Were Promised Jetpacks remind me of a bunch of other bands, like Band of Horses, say. There are some post-rock-ish elements to their music as well. It adds up to a formula that should probably grab me more than it does, but I find all their songs kind of slippery in my brain. Pleasant enough while they're going, but I can't pull up the tune later.
Brent's TV, "I'm Gonna Get That Girl"
I, um, have nothing more to say about Brent's TV.
Modest Mouse, "Night On The Sun"
This is from the EP they released after The Moon & Antarctica, which collects some old songs with a few new ones. And it's an excellent little collection. This song, for instance, is absolutely vintage Modest Mouse, with that unmistakable combination of off-kilter guitar and Isaac Brock's weird yelp.
Blonde Redhead, "Loved Despite Of Great Faults"
So, I remember getting this album. Blonde Redhead was getting lots of buzz, the album was produced by Fugazi's Guy Picciotto, seemed like a good bet. I remember the album arriving (in the mail, because I'm old). I even remember playing it. I do not remember ever actually listening to it. These things happen.
