Dancing to Rainbows

Here is a quick list of albums that I’m really enjoying these days.

Radiohead – In Rainbows

I am playing this right now and looked over at Maisie and she was dancing to the crazy beat on 15 Step.

Band of Horses – Cease to Begin

Love the tracks Is There a Ghost (always stuck in my head) and Detlef Schrempf…here the refrain of this song I love…“My eyes can’t look at you any other way.” I have no idea how this relates to Detlef, but I love the way it makes me think about the love I have for wife. (And I love crazy reverb they put on his voice)

The National – Boxer

I’m just in the beginings of discovering this album but I am already in love with the recording and the percussion…and the use of multiple instruments. Paste Magazine gave this the best album of 2007, so c’mon. Get it.

Daft Punk – Alive 2007

Ok, Ok…Daft Punk, but (1) I do love techno and I’m not afraid to admit it. (2) These guys put together some amazing beats and this live recording is proof that techno can have a soul. (3) They are from Paris and I never knew it…and this album was recorded at the show in Paris. I think my friend Taro was there. I was ignorant at the time and didn’t go. (4) They always, and I mean always, wear amazing robot costumes in public. Check this out if you want to learn more about the genius that is Daft Punk.

Tegan and Sara – The Con

I’ve been into girl vocalists lately. Good stuff and some really catchy melodies…that’s all I feel like writing about them right now…good sell huh?

There’s more, but I have to get in the shower…in case you wanted to know.

I believe that in the end love will win out.

  1. ok, this is strange. Chris and I have been living by the Band of Horses album for the past week…and I always have that line in my head. Also, every other album on that list is on our current playlist except Boxer (never heard of it so we’ll have to check it out since we seem to be in line with your other stuff).

    btw, you guys should come visit in italy! we’re still sad we missed you that random day in paris.

  2. oh…and 2 recommendations for you: regina spektor (for adding to your girl vocalists), and the musical/movie “once” (great soundtrack)

  3. Hey Erin…thanks for the heads up on Regina Spektor…I have the ‘Once’ album, but haven’t listened to it yet because I want to watch the movie! thanks for posting!

  4. Ditto on the new Radiohead album. I really do enjoy it. I wasn’t a big fan of Hail to the Thief, but I really enjoy this one. It seems it has more substance then there last couple of albums. Hope you guys are doing well.
