rilo kiley - click the letter M

A lot of webnoise about rilo kiley the last week or so, she has a few nice songs on her website under the first M for Music - I recommend With Arms Outstrectched, nice glockenspeil.

By the magic of MP3Blogs.org, I can tell you that there are loads of Rilo Kiley songs here.

The Soft Parade - Cry All Over Me

In a blatant piece of cross posting, here is a link to the marvellous Soft Parade song (not the electric soft parade) on my personal mp3blog woodentop.

Joanna Newsome - Sprout and the bean

I've been in turmoil since hearing Ms Newsome, I so wanted to like her. she plays the harp - the 2nd most rock and roll instrument after the harpsicord, well maybe 3rd after the recorder, oh, and the celeste. Anyway her annoying mewling vocals really grate after a while, but just the odd song is just about acceptable, a bit like the Cranes.

Jose Gonzalez

Via a discussion over at music for robots about felix mcteigue (streamed mp3s here), a link to jose gonzalez, who's biography isn't working, so I can't tell whether he's Norwegian, or just lives in Oslo at the moment.

Either way, it is tone-centred, altered tuning folk-pop. Quite a few songs to listen to on his site - please go and check them (and him) out. I liked Heartbeats best.
