The 10 best new songs I've been listening to...
Quick scouting report:
The XX finished their shows with Stars and it was borderline transcendent. Amazing. I also love Shelter because of how stripped down it is and because of the lyrics. They played the You Got the Love cover when the house lights went on tuesday night.
The new National album - High Violet - has been on non stop play for me. The lyrics to England and the beat is terrific. Crybaby is awesome.
The new Black Keys album is a recent purchase and I love these two songs.
The Yim Yames record is a Tribute to George Harrison by Jim James of My Morning Jacket. Terrific.
These are two of the most mellow songs on the new Band of Horses and they are awesome.
