Track Meet

Posted by dancehallhips on January 5, 2008

It’s been a week or so since I posted anything, which is embarassing, so I’ve decided to give you a handfull of tracks from a bunch of artists I’ve discovered thanks to their promoters and the bands themselves:

Angus & Julia Stone – “Private Lawns”
Sounds Like: If CocoRosie collaborated with Nelly Furtado

Beast From Sea – “Tree Climber”
Sounds Like: A band crammed into a bathroom recording on a tape player

Demander – “Lovelife”
Sounds Like: If Sleater Kinney had a Top 40 hit in the 90’s

The Silent Years – “Someday”
Sounds Like: If Voxtrot needed an opening act

Caroline – “All I Need (Owen Vallis Mix)”
Sounds Like: If Emily Haines made dance music

The Dodo’s – “Fools”
Sounds Like: If Animal Collective and Beirut got into a car accident

The Child Ballads – “Cheekbone Hollows”
Sounds Like: If you wanted a band you hated to love

Canon Blue – “Halcyon”
Sounds Like: If the Notwist made a musical accompaniment to a rising sun

Say Hi (To Your Mom) – “Northwestern Girls” (*M4A file)
Sounds Like: Damien Jurado on antidepressants

Tulsa – “Breathe Thin” (*M4A file)
Sounds Like: If Nirvana covered the Mama’s & the Papa’s

    THE CHILD BALLADS WERE THE MOST COMPELLING PHENOMENA I HAVE SEEN SINCE GIVING BIRTH. IF THERE IS ANYONE ALIVE TODAY ON THIS COLD ROCK HURLING THROUGH SPACE THAT HAS INHERITED THE MANTLE OF LORD BYRON ( COMPLETE WITH THE GLORY, HUMOUR , SUFFERING, HUMOUR MADE FROM SAID SUFFERING, AND HEART STOPPING-SHOW STOPPING, GOD GIVEN TALENT, AS WELL AS INNER SENSE OF DAMNATION AND A FACE SO BEAUTIFUL TO BLOCK OUT THE SUN) IT IS STEWART LUPTON. SURE, HE’S AN EASY TARGET. A HISTORY OF SELF DESTRUCTION, POETRY AWARDS AND A CERTAIN, INIMITABLE ‘ TOUCHED’ WAY ABOUT HIM , COMBINED WITH HIT OR MISS SHOWS, HAVE MADE HIM A POPULAR CHAT ROOM RELIGIOUS FIGURE /PUNCHLINE. NEVERTHELESS, THE MAN HAS “IT.” WATCHING LUPTON ON A BAD NIGHT IS LIKE WATCHING ALI LOOSE A FIGHT. IT STILL BEATS THE LIVING S H I Tut OF 80% OF THE PROPHETS OF MEDIOCRITY THAT ARE CLOGGING THE ARTERIES OF ROCK AND ROLL. SCREW ALL THE NAYSAYERS, THEY ARE LOWERE THAN THE PEPPER SPRAY LISTON PUT ON HIS GLOVES TO BLIND HIS OPPONENTS. THEY FORGET THAT LUPTON CAN DANCE. THE MAN CAN DANCE MOST FRONTMEN IN CIRCLES WHILE RECITING ‘CHILDE HAROLDE’ PT.S 3 AND 4. HE TRULY TRULY HAS IT. ALL HE WANTS TO DO IS PASS IT ON, GIVE IT TO YOU, GIVE YOU A NIGHT TO REMEMBER. HE IS BACK. MANY HAVE FELT A RECENT DISTURBANCE IN THE FORCE. THE MAN IS BACK AND HIS DANCING SHOES ARE SHINED. I THINK HE MIGHT LOVE US. LET HIM
