Today's Pulse comes from my playlist entitled: hipster-indie-folk
Ok, so as you'll see, i'm great at coming up with playlist names - they're usually pretty broad descriptions of the type of music that resides in them. But each playlist has a special purpose - if i like a song, i'll find a playlist that fits it. Hipster-Indie-Folk is home to this new batch of music i've gotten into since finding the music blog world. Some folky, some indie-rockish, all good.
- mp3: Okkervil River - Westfall
buy Don't Fall In Love With Everyone You See (2002)
A powerful song that gradually builds intensity throughout. From Okkervil's 2nd full length album.
- mp3: The Avett Brothers - Colorshow
buy Four Theives Gone (2006)
From the Avett's 2006 effort that shows more of their slightly screamo style. Wild.
- mp3: Iron & Wine - Pagan Angel and a Borrowed Car
buy The Shepherd's Dog (2007)
Sam Beam has that airy voice that, when coupled with a repetitive little acoustic riff, can be very calming. I used a lot of the songs on his previous albums to fall asleep to. With The Shepherd's Dog, however, he beefed up his sound with some extra instruments and bigger grooves. This won't put me to sleep.
- mp3: Mark Ronson - Most Likely You Go Your Way (I'll Go Mine)
buy Mark Ronson's Dylan Remix (2007)
British Producer and remix-master, Mark Ronson, finally got Bob Dylan to agree to let him rework a Dylan tune. Putting the hipster in this playlist is this groovy,-horn splattered tune.
- mp3: The Kooks - All That She Wants
buy Radio 1 - Established 1967 (2007)
This compliation disc features some top artists from the UK doing interesting covers (check out Amy Winehouse's Cupid). Here we have The Kooks covering Ace of Base - and admit-it-or-not, you ALL know this song.
