Now We're Jammin'

Got some new tunes to share. I hope you like them.

Bat for Lashes, "Daniel"

I love love love how she sounds like a mix between Kate Bush, Sarah McLachlan and the Eurythmics. I can't get enough of her sound or her tambourine. Can I have one? Thanks for sharing, PJ!

Florence and the Machine, "My Boy Builds Coffins"

Totally stole this from Emily and her fabulous blog that makes me want to dress better. We're going to see the fabulous Florence in New York in April and I am beside myself in excitement. I'm trying to pick a worthy outfit but nothing seems to fit my ideas as of yet. Her voice is a throwback to a time before records and sound systems but her songs are a fresh sound with a rich musical landscape that isn't found in many places these days. And she's Welsh!!

The Temper Trap, "Fader"

You may know the Australian band for their song "Sweet Disposition," which is being used in many commercials and movies:

I found them from the movie 500 Days of Summer that I watched without Mike not knowing he wanted to watch it. Haha. So sorry... I really like them and hope to hear more of them on the radio.
