belle and sebastian "we are sleepyheads"
they continue to surprise me. what a tight band! rhythmically solid. the background vocals make the track for me. "ba da ba da ba da ba da ba da" ascending to blissful heights.
ellen allien and apparat "do not break"
dj ray liotta first played this one for me. scorching dancey drum machine beats.
As most of you probably read on Stereogum, Valley Jew called Belle at the Hollywood Bowl the show of the year. Also, great Fresh Air today replayed interviews with and . I'll just assume that everyone agrees Yorke's Black Swan is the best song ever.
thanks for the ellen allien mention. totally forgot about her music after enjoying "do not break" which i first heard on the sneakmove march 30th mix. lovable music that made me happy during a long drive through the desert in early april.
If it's a song you like as much as you've described, you should know it's called We Are The Sleepyheads. =\
