Music Monday: Milagres, Little Willies, Demos and More…

Little Willies: For the Good Times

More music picks for your Monday from Rob Levy and Widge, working together for sonic glory. 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.

Just note: any prices we quote are accurate as of when this post goes up.

We kick off with Milagres from their album Glowing Mouth. This is a live performance of their track, “Halfway,” from June of last year, recorded at WFUV. Yeah, at about 90 seconds in, I’m on board–don’t know about you.

The album is available from Amazon here.

Next up we go with The Little Willies performing the classic song “Lovesick Blues.” This is just awesome.

Not the biggest fan of Norah Jones…but this I could listen to all day long. You can find the studio version of that on their new album, For the Good Times.

This is from Rob’s arsenal: The Demos and the music video for their song, “Nervous.” That’s off their album Lovely. As Rob says, “They sound like a grungy Strokes with a tinge of late Beatles thrown in.”

We then have another pick from Rob…this is Guided By Voices from their album Let’s Go Eat the Factory. Rob proclaims, “Their ‘big’ reunion record. Short songs with bombasts of pop and rock n’ roll.” Here they are performing “The Unsinkable Fats Domino” on Letterman.

The album’s available from Amazon here.

We have Nils Frahm and a piano track entitled “Ambre.” Easy listening that doesn’t make you want to stab yourself. It used to be available as an MP3 download…but that has ended. The CD of Wintermusik is available here…but it’s a bit pricey for three tracks. So.

That’s followed by something entirely different from Rob. Because he knows I have found myself enthralled by dubstep (due to my own personal mental divergence), he gives you (and me) Benga with his 2008 album, Diary of an Afro Warrior. The track I’ve picked is “The Cut.” The whole album is available from Amazon as an MP3 download for just $6.99. And the CD is three times that price, but just in case, here you go.
