Let's start off this week with "Magic" by Only Son. Man, I'm a sucker for strings.
No release date for a new album yet.
Rob recommends Hyperbubble, so from their album Candy Apple Daydreams, is the hyperperky "Girl Boy Pop Toy."
To buy a copy of the album or check out more, their official site will hook you up.
Also from Rob: Sometimes you just want to respond to things, like Avril Lavigne. I've never felt the urge, but the band Everybody Was In The French Resistance... Now! has, with the song "G.I.R.L.F.R.E.N. (You Know I've Got A)." It's Eddie Argos from Art Brut and Dyan Valdes of The Blood Arm. Their album Fixin' The Charts Volume 1 is available for MP3 download/purchase from Amazon.
And one last tip from Rob: the second EP from Gosta Berling is Travel, and it's available on CD Baby to sample and snag.
