1. Richard Swift – The Atlantic Ocean – Love this piano riff, the playful Casio hooks, the bounciness of it all.  Totally weird, totally underrated musician who always has a mangled ace up his sleeve. [from The Atlantic Ocean|buy]
2. Jeremy Enigk – Late of Camera – Sunny Day Real Estate’s enigmatic frontman is finally playing himself back to relevance, where he belongs. [from Ok Bear|buy]
MidlakeOJ3. Midlake – Roscoe (acoustic) – I admit that I’m more than anxious to hear Courage of Others (supposedly out this year!), so I’ll supplement that desire by posting a beautiful alternate cut of one of the highlights of The Trials of Van Occupanther. The original was just named the 39th best song of the 2000’s by Pitchfork.   [from Oak & Julian|buy]
4. Cocoon – Hummingbird – It’s simple and pretty and has tons of heart. I woke up this morning with the melody in my head and had to find out what it was. This is the answer. [From Back to Panda Mountains|buy]
