Post Rock Radio Vol. 2, Episode 3

February 1, 2010

Pardon the interruption. It’s been a rough couple of months on the homestead, but it’s well past due for some rocking of the socks-off variety.
Vodpod videos no longer available.

Basia Bulat – Gold Rush
A really talented Canadian hitmaker who has made only ripples in the U.S. market, Basia should make a splash with the likes of this track is off her second LP, Heart of My Own. This is one of those songs that makes me want to go purchase the album immediately.

Yeasayer – Ambling Alp
I liked their  All Hour Cymbals centerpiece “2080,” but paid little attention when they released that debut a few years back. Guitarless rock is all the rage and this song seemingly dedicated to legendary boxer Primo “Ambling Alp” Carnera offers some John Hughes-worthy licks and a touch a weirdness that intrigues the hell out of me.

Cold War Kids – Audience of One
One of L.A’s top indie exports returns to form on this strong single off the Behave Yourself EP. Third studio LP due out in March.

White Rabbits – Percussion Gun
Just noticed this track from Brooklyn band White Rabbits was free. It’s one of my favorite tracks from 2009.

Anna Ternheim – What Have I Done (Acoustic Version)
This lovely Swede’s voice and vibe would qualify as irresistible for anyone digging the explosion of chicks with pianos on both mainstream and niche radio. This tune off off Leaving on a Mayday could be easily overlooked. Don’t let it happen.
