The Rich Girls Are Weeping

18 October 2006

Part Two of today's previous post...


The Twilight Singers -- Sublime. From the online-only A Stitch In Time EP, a torchy ballad that's a surefire panty-peeler. It really goes without saying that we really, really love Greg Dulli's voice. Hard copies of the EP available from One Little Indian come November. (site)

The Pigeon Detectives -- Wait For Me.
In a 180-degree shift from the previous song, here's some totally snuggly and twee Brit Indie. It's the B-side to the "You Know I Love You" single. This band is ridiculously sweet; this kind of thing is a big weakness, but don't tell, okay? (site)

The Tranzmitors -- Dancing In The Front.
I swear, all this adorable Canadian pop is just crawling out of the woodwork lately. This is a totally cutesy and sassy dance anthem -- hardly substantial, but it made me smile; a serendipitous find that totally brightened my day. (MySpace)

Presets -- Down Down Down (Midnight Juggernauts Remix). I love remixes with distinct movements that provide multiple shifts in mood -- like the way this one shifts effortlessly from an insane strobelight electro party to spangled synths and back again before blending the two tangents seamlessly. (site)

Dear Nora -- Defeated and Lonely. Not to be a total downer on the way out, but I read the other day on Dreams of Horses that Dear Nora is no more. Katy Davidson is still making music (she is, she says, "breaking up with [her]self"), most notably with Marianna Ritchey, as Katy and Marianna. This is an appropriately fitting track from Dear Nora's final album, There is No Home. (Related: Casiotone for the Painfully Alone and Dear Nora -- Hot Boyz) (info, and more mp3s)

BONUS: Amerie -- Take Control (Instrumental). Please, please, please mash this up with something that desperately needs its horn and rhythm section replaced with this bit of super-slick ultra-modern R'n'B magic.

thanks for the heads up on "A Stitch In Time EP" Dulli covering Terry Callier via Massive Attack works for me.

Oh, SO SO happy to see the Trazmitors caught your eye! They are storming live. And the drummer, Bryce, is quite the sweetie.
