A few songs from some old favorites making the rounds lately:
(aka, my google reader starred items so far this week)
Of Montreal - "Coquet Coquette"
via Pretty Much Amazing
** enjoyable and catchy, though still lacking some of the real quirky weirdness that made me love them originally. I do like it more than Skeletal Lamping though.
Frightened Rabbit covers The Lemonheads "Confetti"
via Stereogum (via AV Club)
Chromeo - "Don't Turn the Lights On"
via Pasta Primavera
** consistently smooth and ultra cool dance music - just the right amount of funk. It feels so right for a summer night.
The Thermals - "I Don't Believe You"
via We All Want Someone to Shout For
** oh, just another reason I have a crush on Portland, and another fun/awesome/catchy song for this summer
Tokyo Police Club - "Wait Up (Boots of Danger) (DOM Remix)"
via Brooklyn Vegan
** I was at the Suckers/TPC/Passion Pit concert in Prospect Park last night, and it was so great (more on that to come). This is a solid remix, but the band was solidly on. Good stuff. Still though, it's hard to beat the original which is just so fun.
