welcome to the working week
Darren Hanlon - Operator...Get me Sweden
this is one of my favorite songs of australian boy darren's 2002 hello stranger album. naive yet charming indie pop produced by a former portishead producer includes highlights hiccups and punk's not dead. before setting out on his own darren held a brief stint as the lucksmith's fourth recording and touring member.
Caribou - Pelican Narrows
from the forthcoming milk of human kindness album due out in april, the man behind manitoba before a painful legal exchange puts it back to start breaking my heart style with this number. i can even hear a little bit of prefuse in this one, although it still remains entirely vital and unique. one of the few instrumentals on the new albulum, this track stands out to my little ears because of the faint and delicate melody combined with dan snaith's signature sometimes tribal like drum sounds which i'd love to be able to produce.
