What Am I Listening to These Days?  
Been a while since I've posted any new music....  I have recently discovered some rather great groups that I thought I would share with yall!!!

The Ting Tings

I love me Indie chick bands...  These guys are like a mix between Rilo Kiley and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs...   Or nothing like that... You decide!

(it won't let me embed the video, so you'll have to deal with this link instead)

Coeur de Pirate

Yes, it's French music, and it's soft rocky....  But I just can't get enough of this young lady's voice, and the piano accompanying is absolutely beautiful!  Another great song by them is called Corbeau.

Fleet Foxes

These guys are like Coeur de Pirate if the lead singer was a man, and if they smoked way too much weed.  Or something...  I dunno, but there's something about this song that makes me think of sitting around a fire with my family and singing those crazy old campfire songs...  Their sound is somewhat reminiscient of Animal Collective with maybe a bit of The Beetles thrown in for good measure, which I do rather enjoy, and hope you will too!

Natalie Portman's Shaved Head

Yep, that's the band's name.  These guys are like a group of High School kids having fun being ridiculous, and they're TOTALLY FUN!!!!  The song I've posted is Sophisticated Side Ponytail, and that's all I should have to say.  I mean, with lyrics like "I like it when you say you're gonna beat kids up, that's so hot!  That's so hot!" is it even possible to go wrong?  Their song, Beard Lust, is my new theme song.


So I'll be honest... I'd never heard of these guys until just now, but the song has potential to be a great dance anthem (if it isn't already somewhere) and the video for Jerk It just made me crack up. 

Deer Tick

I heard about these guys on www.theworldforgot.com , which is probably the best music blog I've stumbled across on the internuts, and I just couldn't help but to share with you guys.  They have the kind of sound you'd want to hear in a small pub while you're pounding back the beers, shooting some pool, and all around enjoying life.

I'm always happy to have any sort of effect on someone's musical tastes, and happy when someone finds something in the gems that I search out! :D Hope your kids enjoy it!
