Fleetfoxes sound like a high-voiced, folky MMJ. Not my thing.


No kidding. I haven't listened to it a whole lot so I reserve the right to come around, but right now I'm just wondering how many bands we need that sound like this.

wow, she really gets around.


She also got a mention in BSP's most recent newsletter:

At SXSX ... BSP also enjoyed performances from Holy Fuck, Basia Bulat

and their notoriously amorous former keyboard player Eamon of the Brakes.

Bon Iver was '07 for me, but it'd still prolly be my #1 this year ;)



Sun Kil Moon

British Sea Power

Black Keys

Nick Cave

Fleet Foxes


Black Mountain


Cloud Cult

The Dodos

These New Puritans

Jamie Lidell

She & Him


Those New Puritans eh?

Saw them supporting BSP last month in the UK- not bad, though their name betrays the fact that they're gonna sound like The Fall (and Gang Of Four IMO)


And talking of The Fall, saw them the other night. Mark E Smith never cesaes to amaze really, out on his own, a true orginal, but he looks asthough he'll be dead sooner rather than later. Old, booze ravaged and ill. But 'Reformation' was brilliant.
