Scottish Indie Band Frigthened Rabbit's latest album Pedestrian Verse features a track called Escape Route that has the following lyrics:

His first kicking came on January 1st They said, “Welcome to the club, we’ll take your shoes and your shirt.” He wore his nosebleed like a red rosette And it was a prize he would win again and again and again. He had to find an escape route. It was a rumour, but it soon became true When he was drunk in the suburbs with a boy from a different school. All his good friends soon left him for dead Now he stands staring down at the Clyde from a bridge

And then he saw an escape route From the dogs of West Renfrew From the bitches and bruises He chose Ohio to run to.

It's been a good year for new music so far.

I'm absolutely obsessed with the new Knife album, "Shaking the Habitual." Some will hate it - it's a mix of very dark/weird dance music, and some really out-there ambient/noise that at times sounds more than anything else like a movie soundtrack. But it's very, very compelling.

Other new stuff I've been digging out in just the last few weeks: Kurt Vile, Flaming Lips, Deerhunter, Vampire Weekend, Atoms for Peace.

Chad Valley?

I've never heard of him before tonight, but by chance I found one of his songs under the free singles on the Amazon MP3 site.

He's a chubby ginger Brit with sweaty balls (at least in the attached live studio clip). His voice sounds a lot like Roland Orzabal from Tears For Fears, but it looks like he's a 'one-man-with-a-keyboard' kind of musician. And the music is more synthpop than Tears.

Not sure when the new album was released in the US (might have been last November), but on his site it says he just finished up a month-long promotional tour of several U.S. cities. Just my luck that I'm finding out about him literally 2 weeks after his show here in my town.

Anyway, I checked a bunch of his stuff on youtube, and I'm happy to have a new artist that I like. Well, I like some of it.

Attached is...

I'm loving this record right now. Sorry if it's a duplicate of a previous post - I scanned through and didn't see it, but I might have missed something.

"Spinoza" from Generationals

LOVE the Goldfrapp song, was never a huge fan but I might get this record.

Im really getting into the new Julia Holter CD "Loud City Song"

It's quirky melodic and interesting

The new Goldfrapp CD has leaked. It's gorgeous, sort of like a more organic "Felt Mountain".

Probably my favorite album from start to finish (meaning I felt all the songs were good to very solid without any filler) of the past 5 years was the 2008 debut from White Lies.

Their 2010 follow-up disc was not as good in my opinion and I was sure that meant they were just a one-album wonder for me.

But they just released their 3rd disc, and so far I'm really liking it.

R189, you sound like a plebe who only listens to whatever is spoonfed to you by top 40 corporate radio. Just because you have no interest in broadening your horizons doesn't mean that those who do are "pretentious." Most of these artists are hardly obscure.

I generally like the band The Feeling and just read they have a new album about to come out. Like their last disc, I doubt it will have a U.S. release.

Also, lead singer Dan Gillespie-Sells is a handsome gay man.

The first single (attached) doesn't excite me to much. I'm more looking forward to the album as a whole.

The Feeling - "Rescue"

Shane Filan from Westlife is about to release his debut solo CD.

I've always had a love/hate relationship with Westlife. Even though I hate the majority of the ballad-y dreck songs they released, I still feel like I like the group. Probably because I want to fuck all of them.

Anyway, sounds like Shane is staying in very comfortable/boring territory for his solo career. There are 2 singles available on youtube - both are pretty uninspired.

There is also this cover version of the Lonestar smash Amazed. Not sure if it will be a track on the new CD, but it's serviceable. That's one thing I usually did like Westlife for - their cover songs were decent.

I will be curious to check out Mark Feehily's forthcoming work too. Mark and Shane were the only decent voices in the group.

Thank god for Spotify. I dig Everything is embarrassing because of the 80s feel, but the rest of her music... meh.

Sky Ferreira also has "I Blame Myself," which is a great track.

Kat Dahlia - Crazy, Gangster, Mirror

Majical Cloudz

RAC has some good mixes

David Archuleta, Crush and Other Side of Down

Brandon Flowers, Right Beside You

To each their own. I love her vocal on that track.

Weeknd has a good track, Tears In the Rain. Also, Vanessa by Grimes.
