Attend a haunting soiree with Holly Golightly and The Brokeoffs:

Forget It [mp3]

The new album, Medicine County, officially emerged in the US on 3/30/10 (Transdreamer).

No doubt video is an effective means for sharing a song without giving away the track. Becoming A Jackal from Irish artist, Villagers (Conor J. O’Brien, formerly of The Immediate), is a great song for listening, delivered as such. Recently signed to Domino, Villagers will release their US debut album 6/8/10. I suggest clicking ‘go’ below and then browsing another window or just moving over to a different, non-screen-focused activity in order to avoid the creepy visuals presented:

Dreamy, like meandering through a still-moist field of tall green grass under the first full rays of springtime, A Weather‘s

Giant Stairs [mp3] and Third of Life [mp3]

are two in a continuum from their 3/2/10 release, Everyday Balloons (Team Love).

Here’s another goody, warm and flowing from Minnesota bunch, Communist Daughter:

Not the Kid [mp3]

If you’re a Plants and Animals fan, visit Secret City Records from now ’till 4/20 as they slowly unfold each new song from their newest album, La La Land.

Other happy news: LA’s dear The Henry Clay People has signed to TBD Records (also home to Radiohead, White Rabbits, Port O’Brien, Other Lives and Hatcham Social Club). Look for HCP on tour in May with Drive By Truckers and for their new record in June.
