Pure earworm. Not the sort of song that falls along the norm for me, but once again, you can’t deny a catchy hook. Now, if you like the song, you can download it here, but I warn you that the imagery on the site is NSFW (Not Safe For Work).
Mike Doughty – “(You Should Be) Doubly (Gratified)”
I wasn’t a big Soul Coughing fan. I knew a couple of songs, the “hits” if you will, but I caught on to Mike Doughty’s solo music and figured it would be fitting to pick one of his songs since I was going to see him play at a yoga studio turned music venue this week.
Swell Season – “Low Rising”
I was quite happy to see The Swell Season put out a second album – and this is one of my favorite tracks. Plus, the video is quite brilliant.
Works Progress Administration (WPA) – “Always Have My Love”
Fiddle + pedal guitar? Yes, please.
Mumford & Sons – “Little Lion Man”
And now for a little bit of banjo from an English indie folk band. Okay, upon actually watching the video again, it’s a dobro, no matter, this song is in heavy rotation right now. Their album “Sigh No More” was finally released in the US, which I picked it up on Friday and spent some quality time with it (and Lissie’s EP) while cleaning up my garage and assembling/priming/painting an IKEA coat rack. Exciting, I know.
