Hotsignments 10.30


1. Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin - I am Warm and Powerful - This band might change your life. Ok, maybe that's an overstatement. Or maybe it's not. Another in a long list of stellar acts on Polyvinyl Records, this entry is playful and melodic and mature and all the things I love in a song. [from Broom|buy]


2. Copeland - Love Affair - Plainly said, I love this song. I love the feel of it, the step-down of the chorus, the lyrics, the musicbox piano, the strings, the muted trumpet solo at the end. Just a swelling and beautiful song. [from Eat, Sleep, Repeat|buy]


3. Bowerbirds - In Our Talons - As both the band name and song title would suggest, this song is for the birds. And with the tapping and "dee-dee"ing, you might believe it. Beyond that is a mighty peculiar, yet entertaining song. Accordions are a-heaving. [from Danger at Sea|buy]


4. J.Tillman - Crooked Roof - This song is medicine for most any ailment I can come up with. It calls to mind the very best of Beck's soothing ballads, but mostly it's just a really well-conceived song sung by a very talented artist. [from Minor Works|buy]
