Here's an eclectic mix I've been listening to recently:
The Antlers - Kettering
- I was reminded of this song by the most recent HBO promo for Fall & Winter 2010-2011 programming. It was previously used effectively in 'Chuck.'
Hugo - 99 Problems
- I like his voice, the melody, and the use of Jay-Z's '99 Problems' in a completely different musical genre.
Inception Score #12: 'Time' - Hans Zimmer
- The music at the end of the film; my favorite.
Arcade Fire - My Body is a Cage
- Great song, and a great fan vid as well that fits the song perfectly with Sergio Leone's classic 'Once Upon a Time in the West.' Spoilers for the film in the video though, so don't watch if you plan to see it for the first time.
Blues Sarceno - Bong Squad
- Mostly instrumental, but very reminiscent of Alice in Chains during the "chorus."
The Fratellis - Chelsea Dagger
- Always a good song if you're in need of a pick-me-up or an excuse to start dancing around randomly.
B.o.B with Hayley Williams of Paramore - Airplanes
- I mostly got into this because of Hayley William's chorus, but B.o.B.'s rap is good as well.
The Eels - Fresh Blood
- This played over the credits of 'True Blood' a few weeks ago and I've liked it ever since.
