New Music

The next time you're in need of new music, check out the folks below. I've included the person who introduced them to me, as well. It's always nice to be recognized for good deeds, and turning someone on to new music is definitely a good deed.

Sufjan Stevens-
OK, so he's no longer a secret after releasing one of 2005's best albums in "Illinois." But if you're looking for an all-around magnificent album, Stevens' second installment in his attempt to release an album for each state (only 48 to go!) is a perfect choice. For anyone who's visited/lived in Illinois, the album should be even better. Lookin forward to his tribute to NH/NC/CA/AZ/MA/DC. Introduced by K-Man.

Pinback-
I don't know much about this band, to be honest. Just check 'em out. They sound a bit like Modest Mouse, but w/ much better vocals. Worst case scenario, you don't like 'em and will never get those five min. of your life back. Then again, you're reading this blog, so chances are you don't view each minute of breath as a precious gift that should never be "wasted." Introduced by Charlie.

Citizen Cope-
A girl I know turned me on to this guy, and he's very listenable. He floats styles together in a unique mixture of sound, one that makes you pause from your bowl of cereal and think, "Oooh, I like." His eclectic song library keeps listeners on their toes, giving his music the ability to stand out and fade to the background at the same time. Introduced by Karen.

Mazda- It pisses me off that you let K-Man take the credit for sufjan. a.) I tried to get you to listen to him for a full year before K-Man did b.) I have been listening to him way longer than K-Man and even kind of introduced him to K-Man. "Blue-Screen Life" is the best by Pinback and they have been featured on the O.C.
