Jim James of My Morning Jacket as Yim Yames' cover of George Harrison tunes expressed sweetly and sadly.
Music Genre: Pop
Part Tom Waits, part Loney Dear, part Shins? Love it.
Eef Barzelay introduced me to Clem Snide. I do like these odd names but it's not why I love this album.
Ever so relaxing - perfect for a summer evening at home.
Very enjoyable blend of folk and blues, and help from Neko Case doesn't hurt.
Fun dance music that may take you back to the alternative music of the 80s.
Need a little pick me up? I remember why I loved this movie so much now. Spunky.
You can listen to the whole EP in less than 20 minutes, but this is delirious and enthralling indie rock that I can't get out of my head long after those 20 minutes are over. Tokyo Police Club is "like a swift kick in the pants followed by a raucous dance party" or so says their bio. Can't get...
Anne Frank, lots of nonsense, and The King of Carrot Flowers. Need I say more?
At first I thought Jenny was some kind of cool gospel singer and then I really listened to the words. Huh. Very original lyrics and a soulful twangy voice.
Is this Wilco? Sounds like they are back from whence they came and it's great, strange, but great, and it grows on you, which is always fun.
Bubblegum pop at its finest from Norway's Annie. The highlight for me was the silly and fun "Chewing Gum" where she tells it like it is: "I don't want to settle down, I just wanna have fun. I don't want to settle down, I just wanna chew gum."
I'm not sure how to describe this. It's irritating and then you love it. If I lived in China I'd have some Chinese children...
McKeown's unique voice - lyrics and tunes - will leave you wanting more.
Alternately melancholic and humorous, these raw lyrics and melodies haunt me.
Tell me you don't like the dreamy song, The Killer.
Not sure how to describe this but jolting and lovely. Joanna sings and plays the harp. Peach, plum, pear.
Yorke's first solo album has a real album feel to it with nine melancholic tracks blending and blurring together into a whole. It's a good backdrop for a gloomy day.
It's about time. This four-disc compilation of remastered hits and previously unreleased tunes demonstrates the timelessness of this music, particularly Chrissie Hynde's punk swagger and vocals.
I still don't know how a song called Let's Impeach the President could be so damned catchy. Rock on, old man. Someone had to say it.
On many 2005 Top 10 lists including some here at the Library, this is a must hear, dramatic and lovely.
