I had another one of “those days” today. Not only did I only get three hours of sleep last night, but today it seemed like every band I listened to was as boring as boring could be. Thankfully I picked up my packages and had the new Helvetia album The Clever North Wind waiting for me.
MP3: Helvetia – Beezlebub (Leave Me Be)
Yup. That’s how it’s spelled. I checked and double-checked the package and ID3 tag. But in spite of their strangely titled song, “Beezlebub” isn’t half bad. Granted, it took me three or four listens to really appreciate it, but it’s a grower. Somewhere between a spaced out lullaby and and springtime pop hit there’s a hole waiting to be filled by this song.
Chromewaves has The Wedding Present covering the Cheers theme song. Wicked, Frank.
Check out Belle and Sebastian on Conan over at Sixeyes.
Oh, I got the new Islands album today. While I’d love to post what has quickly become one of my favorite songs of the year, “Where There’s a Will There’s a Whalebone,” I won’t because I promised not to. Nick left a comment on my site when I posted “Don’t Call Me Whitney, Bobby” and said not to post any of the leaked tracks from the new album. Granted, the song had been off my server for over two weeks when he posted that, the point still stands. So don’t take my lack of mp3s as a lack of support for Islands. I love the new album and encourage you all to check it out.
