7.24.06 assignments are way hot...

For serious, this is probably my favorite group of assignments this year. All four could end up in my top 15 in December.


1. Fionn Regan - Black Water Child - Immediately magnetic, this song demands to be played on repeat. This British songwriter is my newest guilty pleasure.

2. Midlake - Young Bride (Cassettes Won't Listen Remix) - The original is also incredible, but this remix was the first version I heard, so it'll be your first as well. Sampled violins, haunting vocal line. [For the first time, this week's assignments will be 5 songs because I'm also attaching the original version here. Enjoy.]

3. French Kicks - So Far We Are - Finally, this band writes something catchy and focused enough to really excite me. Totally sweet drums throughout, great vocals. You know you want to.

4. The Long Winters - Fire Island, AK - I've always loved this Seattle band. John Roderick is the quintessential classic-pop geek songwriter with a knack for cheeky dialogue. Brand spanking new.
