Black Leotard Front - "Casual Friday"

Black Leotard Front - "Casual Friday": "Being in France also makes me think of French songs...or, rather, songs featuring French, like this one. This song also makes me think of my hubby, who I miss right now."

M83 - "OK Pal"

M83 - "OK Pal": "Being in France and staying near the Rue d'Antibes in particular, I can't help but think of M83 songs. (M83's Anthony Gonzalez is from Antibes, for those of you who didn't get the connection.)"

Idlewild - "Readers & Writers"

Idlewild - "Readers & Writers": "Frontman Roddy Woomble still can't get past his fascination with writers and poets, but with the music lurching around like a marching band on a joyous road to nowhere, all you care about is wanting to follow along. Yet another great track from the perpetually underloved Idlewild."

True Widow - "Duelist"

True Widow - "Duelist": "This is actually older True Widow than what you may have heard me rave about (last year's As High As The Highest Heavens...). It's also less heavy-sounding, but no less expansive or powerful. I can't be the only one who digs this band."

Helium - "Vibrations"

Helium - "Vibrations": "After the other day's Wild Flag post, it was only a matter of time before I would find myself listening to Helium again...and here we are. I'm happy Mary's back in action in Wild Flag, but could we perhaps get a short Helium reunion too?"
