Best of February
This is the second installment of my monthly series in which I round up what I think were the best songs of the month, tailored specifically for people that don't have the time and/or desire to wade through my daily ramblings. It's an especially long list this time, and I even left off a bunch of stuff that deserves to be here, but I feel like I've posted enough about this month (Voxtrot, Marissa Nadler, Sunset Rubdown, and more). These will only be up for a few days, so enjoy:
edit: my file-host (Ezarchive) likes to fu** with me at the most inopportune times. It's apparently down now, so check back if you're unable to download.
- The Raconteurs Steady as She Goes mp3
- Destroyer Painter in your Pocket mp3
- St. Vincent Lips are Red (stream at Myspace)
- J Tillman Seven States Across mp3
- SOUND team Electric Stallion m4a
- The Knife Heartbeats (OneMusic Session) mp3
- Danielson Did I Step on your Trumpet? mp3
Dert's Sometimes I Rhyme Slow project sort of came out of nowhere and blew me away. Jose Gonzalez's gentle vocals and strumming meets hip-hop, and it surprisingly, it works.
- The Long Winters The Commander Thinks Aloud mp3
