1. Thirteen Sad Farewells - Stu Larsen

    The title alone got me to this track, and then this Aussie singer/songwriter’s smoothness pulled me in.

  2. tuneage:

    Berlin Bar Hounds - Le Rambles

    With a lead singer, Jacob Borg, that’s a dead ringer for The National’s Matt Berninger’s baritone, it’s not hard to immediately like Berlin Bar Hounds’ Le Rambles. 

  3. She's Not Me

    Jenny Lewis


    This album is perfect! You can listen to the full album on NPR. It’s wonderful! Has to be one of my favorite records of the year so far.

  4. Bad Habit - The Kooks


  5. Higher - Lia Ices

    The guitar that kicks in at the 1:10 mark makes this track for me.

  6. Falling Rain - Reigning Sound - Shattered

    We have rain this morning.  This song makes things a bit less dreary.

    There’s a whole lot more to this story, than the sound of falling rain

  7. Seasons (Waiting on You) - Slow Club (orig. by Future Islands)

    My Slow Club binge continues for Cover Friday.  They turn this great Future Islands track into a slow burner.

  8. Sad Lover - Mark Lanegan Band

    Mark’s voice is just as rough and tumble as ever.

  9. The New Pornographers

    War on the East Coast


    War on the East Coast - The New Pornographers 

    I can’t get enough of this song! 

    Like this one a lot. It’s a Dan Bejar track that sounds nothing like most Dan Bejar tracks.

  10. Mess is Mine - Vance Joy 

    Toe tapping Aussie folk-pop.  

  11. tuneage:

    Jenny Lewis - Just One of the Guys

    Look, I’m not saying you’ve always wanted to see Anne Hathaway, Kristen Stewart, Brie Larson and Tennessee Thomas lip synching to a Jenny Lewis song, wearing a crisp white suits and dressed as men in track suits (with handlebar mustaches!) but you totally did.

    Something about Anne Hathaway holding a keytar feels so right.

  12. Bergamot Morning

    Sea Wolf

    Bergamot Morning - Sea Wolf - Song Spells, No. 1: CEDARSMOKE

    Lots of good stuff on this Kickstarter-financed Sea Wolf release.  This track made me hit repeat a couple times.

    "if trouble was money, i swear i’d be a millionaire" 

  14. Suffering You, Suffering Me - Slow Club

    Hang in there through the 1 min mark where this track really takes off.

  15. Not Mine to Love

    Slow Club


    The new Slow Club record is absolutely stunning! I’m loving every minute of it.
