A step forward…

I’ve been whining about those missing speakers for too long now, so the other day I finally was a bit proactive and went out and bought myself a CD player. Not a big one, but nonetheless a CD player. So after 40 days of musical starvation I can finally listen to some music at work again. Still cannot stream and download stuff (oh well – I can, but I cannot hear a thing), but since I belong to the last 10% of the population, who insist on buying CD’s, I have no shortage of music to choose from.

So far Night Falls Over Kortedala is my new office "darling" and I fully understand why that album by Jens Lekman was widely popular among a large number of bloggers last year. This lovely album contains 12 fine pop songs finding inspiration in various genres and from several other artists.
+ The Opposite of Hallelujah
+ Friday Night at the Drive-In Bingo

For the 10th week in a row One Weekly Gun delivers as promised and posts a new track. This time it’s a tribute (ups sorry – wrong word) sarcastic comment to Mr. Tap Dance himself a.k.a. The President of the U.S.A.
+ Yessir, I Can Boogie

Excellent Swedish indie pop band Tellus About The Moon has posted two new tracks for streaming. Lovely stuff as always and I’m currently “negotiating” hard for the songs to be made available as free downloads.
