Music Monday: Pilot Speed, Broken Records, Various Cruelties and More

More music picks for your Monday curated by Rob & myself. If you like what you hear, use the links provided to snag it for yourself from Amazon. Doing so through us gives us kickbacks, and those help pay for stuff like more bandwidth. And also so we can buy more music.

Pilot Speed: Into the West
Broken Records: Let Me Come Home

[ad#shortpost]Here’s “Barely Listening” from Pilot Speed, a band apparently formerly known as “Pilate.” Why they didn’t just go for “Pilate Speed,” I have no idea.

Direct link for the feedreaders.

That track’s available from their album Into the West, which you can snag from Amazon as either a real CD or MP3 download.

From Rob, here’s “I Used to Dream” from Broken Records and their latest album, Let Me Come Home.

Direct link for the feedreaders.

It’s available from Amazon as either a CD or MP3 download.

Tagged back over to me: a new single from the band Various Cruelties: “If It Wasn’t For You.” Not available stateside yet in any form, sadly. But hey, you can hear it here. So.

Saint Etienne: Foxbase Alpha
Olafur Arnalds: And They Have Escaped the Weight of Darkness
Bloody War Songs

As mentioned by Rob in the most recent Sound Board, St. Etienne have had Foxbase Alpha reissued. Here’s “Only Love Can Break Your Heart.”

Direct link for the feedreaders.

The reissued version is only available as an import from Amazon–but it is there.

Thrown back to me for the opening track from Ólafur Arnalds’ new album, …and they have escaped the weight of darkness, it’s “Þú ert sólin (You Are the Sun).”

Direct link for the feedreaders.

The album is available from Amazon only as a CD.

And lastly, over to Rob, who recommends the anthology Bloody War Songs: 1924-1939. These are captured archival recordings of folk, blues and country recordings from The American Civil War, WWI and the Spanish American War. I couldn’t find one of the actual recordings, but I did find the Carter Family performing one of the tracks, “Faded Coat of Blue.”

Direct link for the feedreaders.

Bloody War Songs is available from Amazon as a CD or MP3 download. The Carter Family singing this song isn’t on that compilation but is instead on their Vol. 1 Boxed Set.
