The Weekly Sweep
Oh alright, one more for the year.
Bloc Party - The Prayer [official stream] Brakes - Hold Me In The River [live YouTube] Charlotte Hatherley - Behave (No sign of this on download/viewing, but we did find a behind the scenes on the Bastardo video so the time wasn't wasted) Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! - Love Song No. 7 [mp3s from official site] Elvis Costello and the Attractions - Tokyo Storm Warning CSS - Alala (up a few posts) Field Music - A House Is Not A Home [Myspace] Future Of The Left - Fingers Become Thumbs [Myspace] Goodbooks - Leni [YouTube] Kim Wilde - Kids In America [YouTube] The Long Blondes - Appropriation (By Any Other Name) [YouTube] (We worked it out in the week - we really liked the Long Blondes up until the single release of the too shouty Seperated By Motorways, and we haven't liked anything they've put out since so much. Call it irrationality if you so desire) Los Campesinos! - Sweet Dreams Sweet Cheeks [Myspace] M Ward - Chinese Translation [mp3 from Each Note Secure] MIA - XR2 (Can't seem to find a version of this online at the moment, but it's a very low-key, almost lo-fi return of the good Ms Arulpragasam) Raveonettes - Attack Of The Ghost Riders [YouTube] Shimura Curves - Stronger [Myspace] (because Ian of Snappish Thoughts indirectly reminded us we've never Sweeped ver Shimuras before) Shocking Blue - Venus [YouTube] (Singer Mariska Veres died this week of cancer, which sent us back to Holland's greatest ever musical export) Sky Larkin - One Of Two [Myspace] (Signed! And to Dance To The Radio at that) Tilly And The Wall - You And I Misbehaving [YouTube] Victorian English Gentlemens Club - Ban The Gin [YouTube]
