Friday Chill Music (July 24, 2009)

The Summer rolls on with another installment of Friday Chill Music. Hope you enjoy.

First up is a cool video of Blitzen Trapper playing Black River Killer. I saw these guys before the Fleet Foxes and they were only ok. I had been expecting big things but was a little disappointed. In the video below, they sound awesome, so I guess it was me that night. I found this clip via the Sports Guy on Twitter.

One of my favorite new artists, Bat for Lashes, did an appearance on KRCW in LA. It's a great session, with about six songs including Daniel & Pearl's Dream, my two favorites. She also talks with a British accent, which is pretty awesome. Walm, can you weigh in on the "poshness" of the accent?

Great Neko Case song, People Got a Lot of Nerve, I just don't get tired of listening to her.

Next is a song from I'm All Ears blog, called Walkabout by Atlas Sound. The song just works. It's not a blockbuster, but it's a pleasant listen.

We'll end with a great Stone Temple Pilot song, the Big Empty. I loved this song when it was released and still do. Plus, it was played during the movie, The Crow. It was dark, mysterious and seemed deeper than I could understand at the time. Kind of like Stone Temple Pilots in the early 90's.
