Masters of melody!

I have been running on low amounts of sleep due to the scholastic vicegrip. As usual, there is a nice variety in this weeks adds. Due to my impending writing party, these blurbs will once again be short. In the spirit of "fun" I will play a "game."

Thao with the Get Down Stay Down - We Brave Stings And All [Kill Rock Stars]
Armed with a great voice
Thao and her band rock and roll
With folk-style prowess

Die! Die! Die! - Promises, Promises [S.A.F.]
Oh, post-punk dance musics
From Dundedin, New Zealand
Kiwis cannot fly

Laura Barrett - Earth Sciences [Paper Bag]
Spectacled woman
Master of the Kalimba
Track 2 is pretty

Pants Yell! - Alison Statton [Soft Abuse]
Polished, poppy gems
Fans of Jens Lekman take note
Sort of lo-fi, though

Flowers Forever - Flowers Forever [Team Love]
This sounds like Bright Eyes
And is also on Team Love
But much bouncier

Sons & Daughters -This Gift [Domino]
Sharp guitars abound
Totally catchy rhythms
Sadly, no bagpipes

Apes - Ghost Games [Gypsy Eyes]
These genre-melders
Are steeped in classic rock lore
Falsettos and all

Various Artists - Antipodean Screams Vol. 2 [Off The Hips]
Aussie garage comp
Likely full of OPI
Pretty awesome, though

That's all!
