Official Site : MySpace : Amazon : HypeMachine Joanna Newsom - Good Intentions Paving Company - Have One On Me (2010) - 3rd album. 3 disc. - She broke out in a big way with her 2006 2nd album Ys. - This is the most mainstream of a progression I've heard from her. It's almost like a late 60's folk rock ballad. - Ys was very operatic in style. - Unique beautiful voice. Official Site : Amazon : HypeMachine Plants and Animals - American Idol - La La Land (2010) - 4th album - Montreal band. - I had a big debate within myself on whether to play a song with this title or not, but in the end thought people deserve to hear a quality song associated with those two words for once. Official Site : MySpace : Amazon : HypeMachine The Decemberists – Don't Carry It All – The King Is Dead (2011) - Brand new forthcoming album!!! - Colin Meloy, leader, said he had initially envisioned this album as a musical. - distinct folk band that at times brings in some Jethro Tull sounds - Headlined the NPR music stage at SXSW. - It will be tough to top their last album The Hazards of Love.

The First 2 were quite good, but were followed by a couple crappy mainstream efforts. - This is one of my all-time favorite artists. I hope this is a return to form. Official Site : Amazon : HypeMachine The Walkmen - Stranded - Lisbon (2010) - 6th album. - They use a lot of vintage instruments. - This track has a fantastic horn section that makes me think of Okkervil River.
