These come straight from the new Spongebob Squarepants soundtrack. They’re cute and it took a while to find them hosted.
Flamings Lips-Spongebob and Patrick Confront the Psychic Wall of Energy
The Shins – They’ll Soon Discover
You want the music video too? Oh, alright
Elliot Smith – these are from http://www.liepaper.com/eslive.htm and http://www.sweetadeline.net/multimedia.html
Jealous Guy – John Lennon cover from 4/17/98 in Washington D.C.
All My Rowdy Friends Have Settled Down – Hank Williams, Jr. cover
The (International) Noise Conspiracy – I was immediately smitten with their newest release “Armed Love” (especailly the song “Communist Moon”). Here’s some of their older work.
(I’ve Got) Survival Sickness
Capitolism Stole My Virginity
The Arcade Fire – I heard more about this band in the past month than I did about any other. They live up to the hype and then some in this amazing blog post – Bradleys Almanac
Check it out for pictures and the entire concert in mp3 format. They even cover the Talking Heads and Neil Young. Kinda makes me mad that their Lexington show is 21+
The Unicorns – Even though they’re Canadian, they’re alright by me. This is one of those bands that Pitchfork does everything short of make love to.
I Was Born a Unicorn
Innoculate the Innocuous
Talk Her Down*
Tie Up My Hands*
*you’re going to have to unzip them
Now Its Overhead – opened for REM this year. Going places.
Wait in a Line (from the album Wait in a Line)
Modest Mouse – Possibly the best thing my college roommate ever did for me was get me into Modest Mouse in our Sophomore year of high school. Here’s a sample of what they used to be like
3rd Planet (from The Moon and Antarctica)
Birds vs Worms
