Yeah, Yeah Yeah's - Two tracks from Show Your Bones

The mp3 blog Kofi's hat has two tracks from the Yeah, Yeah, Yeah's new album Show Your Bones! Damn, I want to see them live. I wonder if Corey over at Do It Old Maid is heading to the St. Louis show? Phenomena is wonderful!

Check out the tracks and tour dates HERE

Neko Case - Star Witness

I'm sure every one and their brother already has heard something off of Neko Case's new cd Fox Confessor Brings the Flood, but I can't wait to have the album in hand. Ever since the first notes of Furnace Room Lullaby I have been in love.

Take a listen to:

DoCopenhagen has a list and links to their top 50 videos of 2005. Some great stuff. Check it out.

The Raconteurs are Here

Jack White and Brendan Benson's new band The Raconteurs launched their site today and I have to say the songs are great. The official story goes that White and Benson got together and wrote a song that truly inspired them. This song was "Steady, As She Goes" and the inspiration led to the creation of a full band with the addition of Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler.

Check out their cool Website and hear two songs HERE

Juliana Hatfield - Made in China

The initial reviews I read about Juliana's 2005 album "Made in China" were not that great. They concentrated on bad production and less than stellar song writing that made me think of the few thrown together albums of her past. I have been a fan since the Blake Babies days and I am one of the few who knows that she has an opus in her just waiting to break free.

Well, it is not the amazing work that I have been waiting for, but it is a pretty great album and has some real standout songs. The production reminds me of "Bed," which is my favorite album of hers.

I am posting my two favorite songs off the album:

Going Blonde
is a great, quick romp through the world of pop stardumb. I love it!

My Pet Lion reminds me of Anna's pet lion: Roary.
