3 Songs: On Repeat

1.  Silver Jews – “Secret Knowledge Of Back Roads” (Drag City has reissued the earliest recordings from Silver Jews on the compilation Early Times, released this week.  The comp. includes the long out of print Dime Map Of The Reef 7” EP and the 12” EP The Arizona Record.  It is an excellent lo-fi treasure chest for completists to witness the band as it developed its unique sound from the beginning.)  

2.  The Sun Parade – “Need You By My Side” (The indie-folk duo of Chris Marlon Jennings and Jefferson Lewis released their debut album, Yossis this week on Spirithouse Music.  The super-catchy first single is just the tip of the iceberg, as the album is filled with soaring choruses, close-knit vocal harmonies and pounding percussion.  Fans of Fleet Foxes, Girls and Elliot Smith unite!)

3.  The Ghost Inside – “Engine 45” (The California hardcore band released Get What You Give, their powerful third album and Epitaph Records debut this week.  They create powerful anthems of self-sacrifice and addiction with a positive outlook set to thundering breakdowns and melodic choruses that capture the intense energy of their dynamic live show.)
