weekly favourite songs

This week brought me a plethora of new music to listen to. Some from new artists, some from more established acts, but nonetheless, it’s been a great musical week.

Little Green Cars

These lovely Irish musicians have *just* signed to Glassnote this past week, and are well worth a listen to. They’ve just completed their first few US tour dates, and are heading to CMJ in New York for a few more. 

Here’s their video for The John Wayne:

And a live performance of Them:

Mumford & Sons cover of Alt-J’s Tessellate, it’s a few weeks back now, but still a lovely cover:

And since we’re at Alt-J, here’s their take-away performance from Blogothèque in Paris:

Then we’ve got Crushing Blows, with The People You Will Never Meet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAeQYJmpG5E&feature=youtu.be

and Feldspar, and Let The Time Run:

sneaking one last song in the queue… since it’s my father’s birthday today, here’s his band from the late 1960’s, Nobody’s Children.

Another photo of Little Green Cars. Brilliant band from Dublin that have just signed to Glassnote Records, and are on their first US tour.
