Centro-matic: "Atlanta"

Just a beautiful song...

Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit: "Soldiers Get Strange"

I can't recommend Isbell and his music highly enough. He's a hell of a songwriter, his music rocks and live, they really turn it up.

Generationals: Con Law

You know how it is, when a friend tells you about a band, you make a mental note, listen to a little bit, something happens, you get distracted... then much later you come upon them again on a KEXP podcast, hear a full song in a different context, and find yourself wanting to spread the word?

Well, anyway... check out the Generationals. Recommended to fans of the Shins, Avi Buffalo, stuff like that. Video is for "Angry Charlie".





And here's another song from their website:

The Thermals: "I Don't Believe You"

"I Don't Believe You" is a song off their latest album Personal Life (due out Sept 7). This live video is from earlier this year before the album was released. Very good quality video, and a good live sound:

Abner Trio: The Giant Crushes You

Found this via Indie Surfer Blog, and really like this band's sound.

The two homemade videos I found don't do the music justice, so go to the website and listen and/or download:

The Giant Crushes You

Minutemen: "This Ain't No Picnic"

The 80's were all about d boon, weren't they? Who's that other guy in the video?

No sense saving this for Old Stuff Friday...

The Black Keys: "Set You Free"

Once you get past the fact that all this is being done with two guys, you're left with the music... which is spectacular, live or on record.

Guided by Voices: "Auditorium/Motor Away"

Will I eventually post the entirety of GbV and Robert Pollard online video content on this blog?

Unless someone figures out a way to stop me, yes I will.

Madlib: "Slim's Return"

This is from Shades of Blue on Stone's Throw Records... would you call this hip-hop or funk or jazz? Whatever, I love this stuff.
