Listening Assignments 10.22.07

1. The Most Serene Republic - Jazz Ordinaire - I'm not quite to the point of obsession, but I'm also not sure if I can get enough of this band. I'm light as a feather. [from Phages|buy]

2. The Cinematic Orchestra - To Build a Home (Grey Reverend Version) - It's been awhile since I wrote about this, but I just stumbled upon this upcoming expanded single with a beautiful acoustic arrangement of this beautiful song. Of course Grey's Anatomy (name coincidental) recently gave the album version "the treatment." [from To Build a Home: Versions (out 10.29)|info]

3. Canon Blue - Odds and Ends - You know right away by the echoed guitar intro that you're about to be pulled into a swirly vortex of sound. Which you inevitably are. [from Colonies|buy]

4. Days Away - Talk it Over - Two years after 2005's excellent Mapping an Invisible World LP fell through the cracks, DA is still looking for a home. That's what happens if you're on Fueled By Ramen Records and aren't as marketable as Fall Out Boy, Panic!, or Paramore. Cue self-released EP to keep our mouths watering. This one's sugar sweet. [from Ear Candy for the Headphone Trippers|buy]

I was at the concert in SF when they did this live. Pretty stunning, but the studio version is even better. Thanks for sharing this!
