iMix 9/27/05
1. Halloween (Pre-Release Version) - Matt Pond Pa
2. Everyone Is Totally Insane - The Dandy Warhols
3. Combat Baby - Metric
4. My Name Is Love - Rob Dickinson
5. June Gloom - The Like
6. I Will Follow You Into The Dark - Death Cab For Cutie
7. Bridge To Nowhere - The Like
8. Weary Arms - Crooked Fingers

Back to business. I'm still perusing the new Matt Pond release, but the single on my list is unbelievably catchy. The Dandy's are of course back on task with their new release Odditorium. My initial listens have me embracing "everyone is totally insane" and not simply because I believe the sentiment. I'm also getting into a couple of girl vocally led groups, The Like and The Metric. The Like appear to have some major label support and thus have a pretty polished release right now. I'll have to say I do enjoy her Bjorkesque vocals....Not as acrobatic but rhaspy and deliciously seductive. I love a voice like that. The Metric are quasi indie quasi pop. This is an older release as their latest isn't on Rhapsody yet. The Rob Dickinson (aka former Catherine Wheel frontman) release is not bad. I like the track, albeit studio slick, but still have to get my mind around the whole album. Lastly, Crooked Fingers make another appearance simply because they rule and i'm at peace with the the idea of "throwing my weary arms around the one" I love.

iMIx 9/8:
1. Call To Love - Crooked Fingers
2. Prepare For The Fight - The Lovemakers
3. Daughters Of the Soho Riots - The National
4. Sing Me Spanish Techno - New Pornographers
5. Sleep All Summer - Crooked Fingers
6. Crooked Teeth - Death Cab For Cutie
7. Resolve - Foo Fighters

So finally got another one of these out. I cannot recommend the Crooked Fingers or Death Cab album enough. Both are stellar in their own ways. The Death cab is consistent throughout and shows it's obvious ties to Postal Service. It's a great album. And though I haven't heard the whole new Lovemakers release, the single has got me humming along.
