On Repeat - 10/12/2010

Karen O - If You're Gonna Be Dumb, You Gotta Be Tough

If you read You Should Know About Sharon Van Etten yesterday you'd know that I'm recently on a folk music kick. Perfect timing for this track from one of my favorite artists: Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. The song is a country cover that sounds completely bluesey and authentic. It's appearing on the Jackass 3D soundtrack and KO is joined by the cast for the last couple of choruses. She sounds fun and natural and I can't get over my girl crush on her.

"Never Come Around" is the first single from La Sera, the solo project of Vivian Girls bass player Katy Goodman and I like it better than anything Vivian Girls has ever put out. Undeniably catchy and playfully whimsical, Goodman's sweet soprano vocals are the star of this bouncy tune.

I'm not going to pretend that the reason I gravitated towards Caitlin Rose wasn't the fact that we have the exact same name. But her brand of old-timey country fits in perfectly with my folk kick this week.
