It is time to post another gosh-damned mix, it seems. It’s kind of hard to keep up with all the decent music of the world, so there are only 9 songs this time around. But they’re all pretty good, so that’s a plus. I wonder if anyone’s noticed that all of these mix intros sound pretty much exactly the same, but really they’re just meant to be filler to push the songs past whatever ridiculous image I decide to add. This time, it’s Happycat!

Abigail GrushSolitude Is Useless – (MP3, 3 MB)

While I have written about Abigail Grush before, I just didn’t like her that much back then. Things have changed over the past few months, somehow, and now I like all but the last song on her latest album, which is quite an improvement from liking only two of them.

BrandoStuck You Inside – (MP3, 2.2 MB)

I have also written about Brando before, and would probably like them more if I had more of their songs. Here’s a free one I found on last.fm, and it sounds pretty much like what I’d expect from Brando.

Gurf MorlixDiamonds To Dust – (MP3, 3.9 MB)

This is a completely ace country song I picked up from songs: illinois, and I can’t imagine his albums being any worse for some reason.

Michele WylenCruel – (MP3, 3.2 MB)

I’m not sure why there aren’t more blogs talking about Michele Wylen, but the only logical conclusion is that they’re all morons. She does some pretty damn fine electro-pop, if you ask me, which you clearly aren’t.

ParadeThat’s Hott – (MP3, 4.8 MB)

This song reminds me slightly of The Gossip, possibly just because it’s rock music with female vocals. Because really, it doesn’t sound that much like The Gossip at all. Oh well.

Richmond FontaineMoving Back Home #2 – (MP3, 2.3 MB))

This song reminds me of Calexico’s mariachi stylings, but it’s still kind of weird to think of them as being a Portland band, mainly because Portland does not strike me as a city that inspires country bands.

Rondo BrothersCrazed – (MP3, 3.7 MB)

I suppose you could call this one electro-pop as well, or perhaps synth-pop. There’s some nice singing, though. That’s always nice.

Scissors For LeftyLay Down Your Weapons – (MP3, 4.7 MB)

It’s a good thing I heard this song before their album Bruno, because that album was pretty damned boring. This song is pretty much the opposite of that album, in the sense that it is good in every indie sense of the term.

Sibylle BaierTonight – (MP3, 2.2 MB)

The album this song’s from was released in 2006, but recorded in the 70s or some such. Talk about procrastination! But there are some good songs on there (like this one), so better late than never. Folktastic!

    Happy… cat. Yes, I sorta.. understand…

    Anyway.. damn this place for making me fall in love with pretty outlandish music for my generation in Arizona!

    I suppose you guys are sorta wondering why I’m even on here? In fact, I suppose the thought that maybe I was a music-smoocher/stealer could be deduced from my previous activities. Well, see here’s the deal: I currently cannot buy music freely, as I am living with my parents (before I go off to a dorm in college). Being as I can’t really access my bank account to supposedly spend on “useless things such as music,” I really have to wait until I actually get to college and have some breathing room before I endulge myself in music. And so here I am, “pre-browsing the wares,” so to speak. There is no ill-will intended..

    And to list some of the bands that caught my ears: nanuchka, the w-i friendship society, wax tailor, keren ann, lum. orchi., lauren s., casey daniel, joshua r., that one icelandic group (down-tempo), et al. My wallet’s gonna hate me..

  • Haha, you said music-smoocher. Anyway, it sounds like you feel guilty for downloading music off the Intarwebs… most of them are free downloads so it should be mostly guilt-free!

  • Ant

    Just like Subway!

    Haha.

    omg, abigail grush’s tunes are so catchy! :O
