Friday Chill Music (March 7, 2008)

Friday Chill Music isn't going to be all that chill and will be a bit eclectic today. In case you missed it, here is my loose itinerary for SXSW.

First up, music-wise is My Morning Jacket. I just heard that they will be previewing their new album next Thursday night. This is a major problem for me because I don't get until Friday. Darn it. I'll have to settle for Jim James. Here is one of my favorite MMJ songs to pump you up. Turn it up.
My Morning Jacket - One Big Holiday

Second, I'm crazy about Kimya Dawson and can't wait to see her in Austin. I think it's the playfulness in the music that I really love. This song feels like a fun, inside joke, that I get to be a party of.
Various - Kimya Dawson / Loose Lips

Third, I'm excited to see M. Ward. He put out a cool album with Zooey Deschanel (the actress) and it sounds kind of classic. Here's a song I like. Feels a timeless, like it could have been big in the 50's (in a good way).
She and Him (ft. Zooey Deschanel & M. Ward) - You Really Got A Hold On Me
