    Weakerthans!

    I didn't think anyone outside of the indie rock/punk scene in Canada had heard of The Weakerthans.

    At any rate, been listening to The Killer's Sawdust lately. Good stuff.

    You may be right...I used to be part of that scene.

    But their new CD is amazingly great and they are playing a bunch of gigs in the US and UK these days. Anyone into catchy but intelligent folky-punk (I hate labels like that but...can't think of anything better at the moment) should check them out.

    JayZ's new album: American Gangster

    good stuff


    Haven't heard the whole thing, but what I have was pretty solid.

    For some reason I've actually started listening to The Blueprint again recently. He really was at the top of the game by just about any standard against which you might measure a rapper.

    ^^^Absolutely love that album. She was amazing on SNL last week, I'm sure there are several examples on YouTube by now.

    I'm obsessed with it. I missed SNL. NBC is pretty good at removing clips on youtube though.

    Here's a clip of her doing a killer version of Secret Heart (from Let It Die) on Carson Daly that was so awesome I actually went out of my way to pull it off my Tivo and post: . There's something decidedly awesome about a chick in heels and a cocktail dress with a Guild archtop.

    And here's the SNL clips: 1234 and I Feel it All.

    Minus the Bear is always in my rotation, and I recently added Jenny Lewis witht the Watson Twins. Rilo Kiley has been on constant rotation since late September.

    And those Feist videos from SNL are amazing. Makes me wish I grabbed some more of her stuff before Oink went down. My girlfriend has Let it Die and her new one as well, so I'll just get them from her.

    Hey thanks. Those clips are fantastic. I think she sounds even better live. I don't really get all the Norah Jones comparisons though, Feist is 10x more interesting.

    Adding on to the Feist-fest, if you get a chance try to track down here work with Kings of Convenience. I had no idea who she was until I heard their album and man...she ruined me for life.

    I heard she did some work/was a part of Broken Social Scene too. Thanks, I was already going to try and *find* (harmless w/c) some of her earlier stuff anyway. Now I have a starting point.

    Check out "Lover's Spit (redux)" on BSS. For KoC, you need the album "Riot on an Empty Street." Or some live tracks such as... http://www.kingsofconvenience.org/kocgigs.html

    I'm actually looking up the Redux right now, but I can't seem to find it.

    BTW, the KoC guys are really good. I downloaded some of the live performances last night and got a chance to listen to them today. Thanks, I love new (to me) music.

    I do like that. I hadn't realize she was part of Broken Social Scene which is a group I like.
