A weekly sampler of what we're listening to (new and old), and what we think you might like, too.


Song: "The Champ"
Artist: Ghostface Killah

Only Ghostface can rhyme about David Koresh, Mick Jagger, Kangol hats and hysterectomies in the same song.

Song: "Hey Alex"
Artist: Bradley Turk

I genuinely like what Brad sings about and how he plays -- a la Daniel Johnston and Casiotone for the Painfully Alone -- and this is brand new to YouTube.

Song: "Crown on the Ground"
Artist: Sleigh Bells

What I want right now is to be at a concert and let loudness like this wash over me. I'd jump.

Song: "In My Time"
Artist: Kurt Vile

Pavement doesn't seem so lazy after all.

Song: "Fables"
Artist: The Dodos

Not too much to say about it, just like this song and the Dodos in general. That and the fact that vibraphones rock my goddamned socks off make this song full of goodness.

Song: "Piano Fire"
Artist: Sparklehorse

My friend Wes (of video?) passed this fantastic album on to me a couple weeks ago. I've been listening to it fairly constantly since then. I love every aspect of this song. That distorted acoustic guitar, the guitar wail, piano, driving drum-beat, Mark Linkous and PJ Harvey's killer vocals, even the obscure lyrics (well, okay, I love some of the images: "fiery pianos washed up on a foggy cost" and so forth," "I can't seem to see through solid marble eyes," etc.).

Loved the horns and the mention of David Koresh on "The Champ".

Does Bradley Turk have any other material out there? He's fun.

love those first 22 seconds of the sleigh bells song.
