3 Songs: On Repeat

1.  Jay Farrar, Will Johnson, Anders Parker, and Yim Yames - "Old L.A." (Out now on Rounder Records, New Multitudes is a new album of Woody Guthrie lyrics old-fashioned into 12 Americana-loving folk rock songs by some of the genre's best: Jay from Son Volt, Will of Centro-matic, Anders of Varnaline and Jim James of My Morning Jacket.)


2.  School Of Seven Bells - "The Night" (Now a duo, guitarist/producer Benjamin Curtis and vocalist Alejandra Deheza released their third album Ghostory this week on Vagrant/Ghostly International.  Haunting, 80's inspired electro dream-pop with gigantic beats and Deheza's breathy vocals, set the tone for a lyrical ghost story concept on their best album yet.)


3.  Memoryhouse - "The Kids Were Wrong" (Canadian duo of composer Evan Abeele and singer/photographer Denise Nouvion released their full-length debut The Slideshow Effect this week on Sub Pop.  With a more direct and pop-leaning approach, their confidence and songwriting now shine through the hazy layers of reverb.)
