On Repeat - 10/6/2010

Totally digging this Bob Dylan cover by ultra-cuties The Morning Benders. It's part of a Bob Dylan tribute compilation from Reimagine Music called Subterranean Homesick Blues: A Tribute to Bob Dylan's Bringing It All Back Home. The old school blues-y guitar takes me back to college, a time when I didn't listen to anything that was recorded before 1975.

Warpaint - Undertow

Warpaint's The Fool has got to be one of the most hotly anticipated LPs of the year. "Undertow" is here to hold you over until it drops October 25th. It's more of that great drone-y stuff the girls do so well. I think you can actually hear hearts breaking on the record.

This selection comes from my good friend Tamara with the instructions "You have to play it super loud!" T has been trying to get me to fall in love with Two Door Cinema Club ever since she saw them and compared their live show to when we saw LCD Soundsystem together. They will be stateside (they're Irish) for CMJ (yay it's October!) and I'd love to catch them. Here's more of what T had to say about TDCC, because I think she put it so well - much better than I could have: "[When they started playing 'Do You Want It All?']...everyone in the place started dancing like mad. What a love fest. Seriously, great great show. What energy! It's in my top 3 along with Foals and LCD Soundsystem for sure! However, if you for some reason are not feeling 'Do You Want It All?' check out 'Something Good Can Work.' It's my ringtone and makes me smile. It's dance-y and tot reflects their sound: upbeat and get-jiggy-wit-it! Or 'I Can Talk' which is darker but still manages to be upbeat. Sexier. More attitude. Their CD is very uniform sounding though, aside from a few mild spikes in tone and tude. I find the beats super energizing!"

Thanks Tamara!
