The great music rampage of 2007 begins.

My downloading spree started this morning!
I’ve worked my way through most of the list of suggestions, downloading two or so songs from each artist, and giving them a cross for no, or a big circle if I’m going to download more of them.
I thought I’d keep you updated, as a few of you mentioned you might interested in some new music yourselves.
(I must have a bit of a disclaimer though: music is a very, very personal thing. I don’t want anyone to be offended in anyway that I didn’t really love their suggestions, okay? We like what we like, and that’s what makes us lovely.)
Okay, so here is my shortlist so far (with links to where you can download a song or two):
Of Montreal
Andrew Bird
(ooooh soo gooood)
Iron & wine
Joshua Radin
Jamie Cullum
The slackers
Belle & sebastian
Bloc party
The kaiser chiefs
Page france (also amazingly nice.)
The kinks

I still have a few to go, and some I’m getting on disc from Abraham, but these bands are definitely all on the "get more" list! I’m so, so excited to be getting new music, I only have about 700 songs on my creative player (and of course I only ever feel like listening to about half of them) and listening to them over and over and over gets a bit dull…This week is going to be goooood.

Ummm…… you can never ever go wrong with the Counting Crows! Adam Duritz’s writing is amazing and has such a unique voice with a poetic & creative style. I vote for the Crows. Try these to start off with:

1. Black and Blue
2. Anna Begins
3. Butterfly in Reverse

These are just two of my favorites! (Actually, I haven’t heard one I haven’t loved yet!)

And…… where’s the interview?

you could add some Sam Prekop, Archer Prewitt or their band Sea & Cake. Tortoise is good instrumental stuff as well.(I like like pretty much anything from the Thrill Jockey label out of Chicago.) Calexico is one of my favs, reminds me of living in Tucson, AZ. well enjoy all of your new ear-candy!

If you love Feist, you’ll love Arcade Fire….
O Canada!

If you like Feist and Cat Power, you might like Broken Social Scene, STARS, or Neko Case, too.
