Music Monday: Drums, Rodrigo y Gabriela & Divine Comedy

Rob Levy returns to give you more music worth listening to. And like Shake and Bake, I helped. If you like what you hear and want to snag a copy, please buy the selections from Amazon through us. We get kickbacks and it helps pay for stuff like spare car batteries. And pie.

The Drums self-titled Rodrigo y Gabriela 11:11 Divine Comedy: Bang Goes the Knighthood

We kick off with a track from The Drums‘ full-length album titled, oddly enough, The Drums. It’s “Forever and Ever, Amen.”

Direct link for the feedreaders.

The album is available from Amazon as an MP3 download. You can snag it here.

Next, is my pick for this week–from Rodrigo y Gabriela, who we’ve brought to your attention before. Here’s “Hanuman” from their latest album, 11:11. And at no point do their fingers leave their hands.

Lastly, Rob informs us that The Divine Comedy has returned with a new album, Bang Goes the Knighthood. Here he is (Divine Comedy Neil Hannon, not Rob, that is), playing a pair of songs from the album, “Neapolitan Girl” and the title track.

  • I like Rodrigo y Gabriela but they’ve done the exact same album 4 times now :(

    Have you heard the new Ratatat album?

  • Dan: I came on board with the album before this so they haven’t worn me out yet. But I can understand that frustration.

    Re: Ratatat…have not. I assume I should?

  • I think you definitely should. They’re an instrumental group that sound like a cross between ELO, Daft Punk and the guitar from War of the Worlds. Not nearly as amazing as a mashup between all those but you get the idea :)
