I went skiing yesterday and somehow got a concussion and went to the hospital. I’ve got a spotty memory because of it and am having trouble remembering what’s going on from hour to hour. Anyways, this song pretty much sums up how I’m feeling right now.
UNKLE & Thom Yorke – Rabbit in Your Headlights
ps: I woke up and asked everyone at the hospital if Radiohead was still the best band on Earth. My roommate’s girlfriend assured me that yes, yes they were.
The Caesars – Yeah, I’m about a month behind. That’s not the point. The point is that this song is highly addictive and fun. This is perfect for the “Sunny Day Soundtrack” I’m making for my ipod. Anyone else getting a sneak peek of spring in their area?

Rilo Kiley – Here’s another installment of KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, this time the guest is Rilo Kiley. Enjoy!

The Motel Beds – These crazy kids have been my treat of the day. They feel like they could be Modest Mouse’s younger, more pop-oriented, brothers. Their lyrics are memorable and impressive and they truely have a firm grip of what it is to write a pop song.
Sky Made Suit
PAS/CAL – A new friend of mine pointed me towards this band. One of their songs (The Bronze Beached Boys) was featured in a commercial that I can’t place. They’re just happy, peppy music along the lines of Bishop Allen and Mates of State.

Beck – I’m pretty sure this is that version that made it out early that wasn’t the correct one. So I’m sure that Beck and his compadres would have no problem with me posting this.

I had the fortune to listen to this album recently and was highly impressed. This is the cooperation between Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes and Britt Daniel of Spoon. It feels like mostly Bright Eyes songwriting, which is understandable. I mean, if you’re Britt, would you want to tell Conor what to do? However, what stood out to me is the lyrics.
You’re always saying that I owe you one,
Well, let’s consolidate this debt.
Get on a payment plan,
I’ll pay you compliments.
-Spent on Rainy Days
On the downside, it only has four tracks. They’re awesome, but this cd just begs to be filled with more genius. Sure it can get a little boring at times, but not even Bright Eyes and Spoon are perfect. Anyways, I’d suggest buying this one. Amazon has it for $9.99 new and $6.99 used.
*edit* The file is down at the moment. I hope to fix it by this evening.
