2006 quickie music retrospective- Part 1

Jolie Holland - Mexican Blue from her album Springtime Can Kill You
Let's start slow with this low-key jazz tune with a sexy southern twang. Lovely album.

Sodastream - Twin Lakes from Reservations
My favorite Aussie band. Guitar and stand-up bass duo.

Patrick Watson - Daydreamer from Close to Paradise
Patrick lives two corners from our place and, true story, last summer he saved the life of a
dog we were dog-sitting. And then put out his superb sophomore album. Super-Hero stuff.

Sunset Rubdown - Shut Up from their album Shut Up I Am Dreaming
Also from Montreal, side-project of Spencer Krug, of Wolf Parade fame.

Malajube - La monogamie from the excellent Trompe l'oeil
We're still in Montreal, this time in French, and Malajube are the best thing that has happened to québécois rock in forever.
Cool vids, too.

Land of Talk - Speak to Me Bones from their debut EP Applause, Cheer, Boo, Hiss
More Montreal indie rock goodness... man, I love this city.

More to come...
