To Die By Your Side

Last week I was mostly listening to…

February 23rd, 2012

So this was last week. Slightly earlier than it has been over the past few weeks. Lots of good stuff in that list. A good mix of quiet and loud, brash and contemplative. Not only that but last week saw a few new records creep into rotation. My recentĀ Lambchop listening has continued steadily and I have to say, while I haven’t really given it enough to form enough of a full opinion, ‘Mr. M‘ is proving to be yet another great album from them. As too is Leonard Cohen‘s latest long player, ‘Old Ideas. Again, I’ve only given it a couple of listens but I’ve heard enough to know it’ s definitely going to get a fair few more. Elsewhere, Sleigh Bells new one has peaked my attention but is as impenetrable on the first few listens as their debut is. Definitely needs some more listens to get under it’s skin. So things are starting to look up on the new releases front. It certainly seems that after a particular dry start to 2012, the flood gates are about to open and the new music is gonna coming flooding out. In the meantime, here’s some music from some of last week’s most listened to.

Leonard Cohen – hey, that’s no way to say goodbye (live 1968 session version) : original version available to buy on ‘The Essential Leonard Cohen

The Kills – satellite (live acoustic session version) : original version available to buy on ‘Blood Pressures

Laura Marling – rest in the bed (live acoustic session version) : original version available to buy on ‘A Creature I Don’t Know
