Two for Tuesday (Wednesday)

Well, big release week for Billito....Albert Hammond, Jr., The Black Ghosts, Beck, Abe Vigoda (no, not the actor - the No Age-esque band from LA) etc.

Here are some ritmos y cantos!

Beck - "Gamma Ray" from Modern Guilt

Bloc Party - "Mercury" from and their forthcoming album

and stuff you may have missed.....

Hope some of you savvy readers have gotten Fleet Foxes (on vinyl preferably, ha!). I hadn't posted about them, b/c Callen usurped me on her blog detailing my purchase of the album etc . (thank you, Callen from Fleet Foxes, as you have many more onlookers than me) Nevertheless, one of my favorites of the year, this record has been in Whitney's car since we got it a month ago (even though she mainly listens to NPR...) I refer to them as My Morning Shins (the jacket + the shins). Listen, you'll hear it, too. Some of it sounds like Allison Krauss' song from O Brother Where Art Thou leading the Baptist congregation/ Lotus Eaters into the river for baptism. Crazy.

Fleet Foxes - "White Winter Hymnal" - their current single

Fleet Foxes - "Your Protector" - my favorite
