Alejandra in Mexico made this for me. Since I can't draw a straight line with a ruler, I'm in love. And I feel special.

Not that I’d want to distract you from the glory that is my last.fm (CLICK HEEEERRRRRREEEEEEE), but I’ve gotten a ton of requests asking me to blog up what I’ve been listening to lately. Everyone also wants me to start listing my top albums of 2010. Welp, that’s what I keep a last.fm for. Lord knows I don’t remember. So here you go.

Stats for the past 12 Months:
Placement | Artists | How Many Times I Played It
1     The Roots 618

2         Kaki King 601

3      Erykah Badu 379

4     Auf der Maur 325

5      Nas & Damian Marley 299

6       Cage the Elephant 249

7     Lupe Fiasco 222

8    Freeway & Jake One 216

9      Shy Guy 196

10    Fleet Foxes 163

Weekly Stats:
Placement | Artists | How Many Times I Played It
1    Nas & Damian Marley 267

2   Incubus 89

3      Kaki King 84

4   The Roots 81

5    José James 60

6      Big Boi 43

7   Company of Thieves 19

8      Alan Menken 14

9    Von Pea 12

10   Andre 3000 10

So there it is.  For now. Maybe I’ll Make list at the end of the year, but who knows.
If you want more, this link right here will take you to the Top Artist page with everything you wanna know on it.

Have fun.

The Pressure is Rising.

Sound: Indie, Rock, Folk, and yes… Jazzy Jam Band.
Album: Ordinary Riches (2009)

Why?
With lead vocals like this, you really dont need much convincing. Genevieve Schatz’s breathy, yet rich vocals make the intricate, well written lyrics easy to listen to. Since were on songwriting, her lyrical game IS on point, so much so that the bands actual existence stems from a lyric and song writing contest they won back in 2007.  The songs are stories that hit home. So much so, I had to turn off “pressure” for a minute, and re-evaluate my feelings about things. lol.
However, if youre still looking for more, I urge you to check a band that has a great way of balancing wonderful folk-type melodies and intricate, jazzy basslines and drum work to create this new sound that has me excited for whatEVER genre this is. Even after losing their original bassist last year, they still managed to sound AMAZING when I saw them live in Anaheim in october. So the live show aspect (important to me), is already there.

Songs To Check:
Pressure (linked below), Oscar Wilde, Under The Umbrella, The Fire Song, Even in the Dark.  Hell. The whole damn album. Really.

Pressure:

Oscar Wilde:

enjoy.
