"Murder In the City" by The Avett Brothers

If I get murdered in the city

Don’t go revenging in my name

One person dead from such is plenty

No need to go get locked away

When I leave your arms

The things I think of

No need to get over alarmed

I’m coming home


Three years after their successful self-titled debut, James Mercer of The Shins and Brian Burton AKA Danger Mouse join forces once again as Broken Bells, with their sophomore effort entitled After the Disco slated for a January 14 release next year. Here we have the delicious first single off that record, the Bee Gees-channeling “Holding On For Life”. I guess we’ll just have to make do with that until the rest of the album comes out.

Check out the song, the accompanying sci-fi short film and rest of the article @ ISOLATED NATION

"Still" by Daughter

From their latest album, "If You Leave".  Perfectly sombre rainy-day songs.

"Entertainment" by Phoenix

Rejoice, Phoenix fans! Here’s a taste of their upcoming album, "Bankrupt!", due out some time in April. It’s typical Phoenix fare, but hey, I sure am not looking for anything different from them! Are you?

"World On Fire" by the Royal Concept

"Bad Blood" by Sleeping At Last

Here’s a nice, sombre tune by almost always sombre Sleeping At Last to start/end the day.

Happy 2013, followers! 

To make up for the lack of updates last year (I’ve been sloppy, I know) I come bearing gifts! This will be the second instalment of a mixtape/playlist-type thing from this blog (the first one can be found here). There are 15 tracks I’ve put together to help kickstart February for you. Enjoy and feel free to share it with your friends!

update: Apparently Mac users can’t download the file due some issues with Theme Park’s song, so I uploaded one without the track.

"Wide Open (acoustic)"  by Steve Moakler

"Magic Mile" by Cold War Kids

"Twin Cities" by Hungry Kids of Hungary

If you’ve never heard of them before, you’re missing out. One of my favourite bands to come out of good ol’ Australia (not Hungary, despite the logical assumption), Hungry Kids of Hungary are the epitome of bubbly, fun indie pop that you just can’t help bobbing your head to. Here we have their most recent offering, "Twin Cities". Enjoy!

-howie.

"For A Fool" by The Shins

Taken for a fool
Yes I was, and I was a fool
Following their rules
Guess I was a very honest tune
