1. LaGuardia – Holy Ghost – Two minutes, thirty-three seconds of handclappy, jump-dancy, guitar-churny fun. [from Welcome to the Middle|buy]

2. Good Old War – Looking for Shelter – When one of my old faves Days Away faded into bolivian a few years ago (after their strongest album) I shed a few figurative tears. But I am sad no longer because Good Old War has roared back to fill the vacancy.  It’s a curveball, jangly acoustics replacing reverb-washed guitars, but the harmonies are back and the music finds a way to resonate anew. [from Only Way to be Alone|buy]

3. The Champion and His Burning Flame – The Expert – It’s breathy…think American Analog Set. It’s plinky and fun…think The Morning Benders. It’s good…think good things. [from The French EP|buy]

lowlalove4. Low Low Low La La La Love Love Love – Blackbird 3 – This chill selection starts like a music box, turns to a lullabye, and ends like a dreamy ’70s ballad. Your ears deserve a caress this gentle. [from Feels, Feathers, Bogs and Bees(out Fall ’09)|e-card]

  1. I’m so glad your back at this.
