Songs That Might Otherwise Pass You By

Songs That Might Otherwise Pass You By

Alright, so I'm a little light on actual MP3s this week. Yesterday was my birthday, alright? Cut me some slack! I was busy at the zoo, commiserating with my fellow mammals. I also went to an excellent restaurant here in Jax called Orsay. It was awesome. If you're anywhere near hear, I highly recommend it. I got free ice cream 'cause it was my birthday, too :)

I will post zoo and birthday pictures on my Facebook later, and probably my Myspace.

Molina and Johson, "Almost Let You In" and "20 Cycles to the Ground"

Ever heard of Magnolia Electric Co? If you have, you've heard of the Molina part of this band. Ever heard of Centro-Matic? Then you're familiar with the second part of this duo. Yes, as most of you already know, I loves me some mountain men folk music.

Seriously, this is the only picture I could find of them. Appropriate, considering yesterday was Halloween, huh?

A bit of sadness. I only found out about the musician/songwriter Taylor Mitchell a few days ago, after I heard she'd been killed. The story's all over the news sites, so you can find an article on it quite easily. I listened to her songs on her Myspace and website, and they're really beautiful. She had the talent of the older generation's folk musicians like Joan Baez or Carole King. She left one album, though, and it is gorgeous. I couldn't find it on Amazon or iTunes, but it looks like it's possible to order the physical CD.

Artist Update

Imogen Heap has a relatively new album, Ellipse. You can hear the songs on her Myspace.You can buy it on CD or digitally through her website, and you can listen to some of her past songs (like "Say Goodnight and Go" and "Hide and Seek" at her iLike site)

Tegan and Sara has a new album! It's called Sainthood. You can listen to the sing "Hell" at their website or watch their really funny video for the song.
