your favorite new music?

Recommended Posts

I think I bought more CDs in 2009 than in any other year. It's hard to think of specific songs to recommend from those many albums, but here are a few that stand out in my mind. For added interest, I've put my favorite lines/a link to a video/an interesting fact for each song in a second list underneath the first:

1. Lorna Zauberberg - Mike Doughty
2. Pleasure on Credit - Mike Doughty
3. Hotel Plaster - Nicole Atkins (sorry Jamie, I know this one is yours, and I'm blatantly stealing it because I love it too)
4. New Year's Day - The Bad Plus w/ Wendy Lewis
5. You Are - The Bad Plus
6. Miss Disregard - Lake Street Dive
7. Elijah - Lake Street Dive


We're ill at ease in the house of lesser than,

And at breakfast we get by on charm alone.

The sun beats down on immaculate beige carpets,

And the plank of spoons bounce off the off-white wall.

I flipped through the music that you left,

Some old cassettes that lean against the wall.

I ate all the peaches off the shelf,

And I rearranged the cans into a poem.

Vicious mobs of candy-ravers stalk the night,

And Methadone-ians sleep right where they stand,

A weeping tranny is craddling a steak knife,,

And you're happily slugging Rob Roys with your man...


Get sad but, don't get glum,

Don't sleep sipping on the laudanum.

Slutty fat girls in wedges -

John Paul Jones, bustle in the hedge.

Late night, Cold rock thriller,

Roll up the world like a pillar.

My fluid is spinal-

Yes I'm better-Yes that's final,

Can not prove, nor can not jerk,

Mellow man and men at work,

Got the best of the new of the next generation.

Get together like a unification.

Well I'm a coaster you're a flume-

Yes, I blossom, yes, I bloom.

Get wide, because I'm spacious,

Got words, but not loquacious.

3. (Video by dentistgirl, though I was standing right next to her and recorded audio for the whole show if anyone is interested in that Smiler)


5. This song isn't coming out for a while, but I saw it at The Bowery Ballroom in January and it was amazing, so I'm counting it as 2009. There's an ok youtube video of it too:

6. I'm so happy LSD is putting videos on Youtube of their new stuff. God they're awesome.

7. Live from a porch in Brooklyn, how could it get any better than this -
