Some new music

Summertime's here and that requires some good crusing music. Here's some new discoveries (to me, at least):

I'm calling it: "Rainbows in the Dark" by Tilly and the Wall is the song of the summer. I've only heard it on this week's All Songs Considered podcast, but damn if it's not catchy. Yes, the percussion is done through stomps and tap dancing. Although my assets are frozen, I may have to do some shifting around so I can buy their album.

"Fidelity" by Regina Spektor - Love those strings. 'Nuff said.

"Ballad of a Wasted Bullet" by The Fourth Floor - Kind of has a "The Freshmen" by the Verve Pipe vibe to it.

Lastly, it wouldn't be right not to mention the All Girl Summer Fun Band. Loves me some twee pop.

tilly and the wall sounds a bit like the danielson famile and co. (whom sufjan has traversed with and recorded with several times)

I remember seeing the danielson famile in a Tooth & Nail catalog (during my mid-90s T&N phase), but never checked them out. I see that the new record is getting good reviews. I guess I'll have to give them (him) a listen.

Thanks for potentially putting a big hurt on my wallet (I'm the type that will buy up an artist's entire catalog if I start digging them).
