The Unknown & Unheard Show 143

Stream & Download The U & U Show 143 Right Here, Right Now! Suckers - King of Snakes - DayTrotter Session (2009) - as of yet unreleased track - this might be the best sounding DayTrotter Session I've ever heard. - they have only released their self-titled debut EP and if it didn't have you craving more… this four song set on DayTrotter will. - They're a group of multi-instrumentalists and their wide ranging talent shows through clearly in their deeply layered, well-constructed progressions. Official Site : Myspace : Buy on Amazon : Stream on HypeMachine : DayTrotter Session Diamond Rings - All Yr Songs - Diamond Rings/PS I Love You 7" (2009) - debut release - Solo project from John O'Regan, the lead singer of the D'Urbervilles (they have a fantastic cover of Timber Timbre's 'Magic Arrow'!) - Reminds me a lot of the leading indie pop bands... Belle & Sebastian, Bishop Allen, Etc. - Don't watch the video for this song... Myspace : Stream on HypeMachine Langhorne Slim – Back To the Wild – Be Set Free (2009) - 3rd album… out September 29th - His self-titled second blew me away. - the best folk singer/songwriter out there for my money. Myspace : Buy on Amazon : Stream on HypeMachine Cass McCombs - The Executioner's Song - Catacombs (2009) - 4th album - fits in somewhere between mellow Beatles, Beach Boys and Iron & Wine - this one leans more towards Iron & Wine Official Site : Myspace : Buy on Amazon : Stream on HypeMachine Iron & Wine - Each Coming Night - Our Endless Numbered Days (2004) - 2nd album - spare folk arrangements and hushed vocals - one of the coolest artists to see live. Official Site : Myspace : Buy on Amazon : Stream on HypeMachine Songs: Ohia - John Henry Split My Heart - The Magnolia Electric Co (2003) - Just released 'Josephine' under the name Magnolia Electric Co - this is the signature sound I go to Jason Molina for. Josephine steps away from this, which is unfortunate… for me. Myspace : Buy on Amazon : Stream on HypeMachine Lucero - Smoke - 1372 Overton Park (2009) - New Lucero! - Ben Nichol's led band's first album on a major label - The level of polish has jumped significantly and it doesn't seem to fit with them - They have always seemed like the quintessential bar band, they hoarser and rougher their sound the better. - With that said, the polish can't disrupt the band's ability to write quality music. Official Site : Myspace : Buy on Amazon : Stream on HypeMachine Kurt Vile - Red Apples - God Is Saying This To You (2009) - 2nd album, 3rd out later this year (Childish Prodigy) - He has one of my favorite tracks of the year… 'Freeway' Official Site : Myspace : Buy on Amazon : Stream on HypeMachine The Mountain Goats – Matthew 25:21 - The Life of the World to Come (2009) - NEW MOUNTAIN GOATS! - If that alone is not worthy of a play, I don’t know what is - This seems to be some relative of a concept album based around lessons he’s learned. Each track’s title is a specific bible verse. Official Site : Myspace : Buy on Amazon : Stream on HypeMachine These United States – Everything Touches Everything - Everything Touches Everything (2009) - 3rd album in 3 yrs - Their debut was one that I immediately latched onto, but it took a re-release to drive up the following this band deserves. - Jesse Elliot, lead singer, writes some fantastic lyrics to go along with the layered Americana progressions. Official Site : Myspace : Buy on Amazon : Stream on HypeMachine Daniel Johnston - Freedom - Is And Always Was (2009) - quirky singer/songwriter with bipolar disorder - has a substantial cult following - gained fame from some early 90’s mtv play and more recently from the documentary ‘ The Devil & Daniel Johnston’ Official Site : Myspace : Buy on Amazon : Stream on HypeMachine Thomas Function - Belly of the Beast - In the Valley of Sickness (2009) - 2nd full length. Out October 13th - Fun southern rock'n roll Myspace : Buy on Amazon : Stream on HypeMachine Vandaveer – Beverly Cleary's 115th Dream – Divide & Conquer (2009) - 2nd album from this DC singer songwriter, Mark Charles Heidinger - He also has played bass for U & U favorite, These United States. - His voice is the standout element, but his rich compositions are a close second. - This track (and a few other tracks) feature some back-up female vocals that compliment the music nicely Official Site : Myspace : Buy on Amazon : Stream on HypeMachine
