Friday Chill Music (February 20, 2009)

It's been a great couple weeks for me and I'm looking forward to the releases of some great music by M. Ward and Neko Case. Plus, Pearl Jam and Wilco are back in the studio. Combine those bands with Andrew Bird's recent release, and I'm a pretty happy music lover right now.

Starting off is M. Ward's live performance of his new album on Feb 17. It was the release day and he wanted to do something cool for it, so he played live for NPR. Check it out!

Next is a song posted on LuvvBuggBlog from Ida Maria and it's called, "I Like You Better When You are Naked." Great, poppy, recommendation from new Bay Area resident, John Hamilton.

Third is It's Okay by Land of Talk. The wonderful ladies of I'm All Ears tipped me off to this one. Pretty sensitive but a great vibe.

Finally, I'm really digging the new Dark Was the Night disk put together by the guys from The National. It's a compilation disc with 20+ songs. Here is the Bon Iver contribution that is pretty sweet.
