fly away, fly today

I feel like I have found a gold mine of new music, and as luck would have it, beautiful videos as a perfect compliment. Watchlistentell features a stellar docket of musicians doing impromptu concerts down London's grey alleys, cheery parks, and secret locations not to be disclosed.

I have this maddening habit of repeating songs that I like, I really could do it all day and then wake up the next morning excited to listen all over again. Unfortunately for Matt and his non-repeating ways, that is what many of these songs have become for me.

Here are a few of my favorites, but you don't have to take my word for it.


  1. Cold Canary!!! Such a sweet sound. I recognise some elements of Aboriginal sounds in there too!

  2. Only a guitar and great voice ... and the music sounds beautiful. I think the first two bands I liked the best, but I can not decide. They all sounds good.
    Thank you for sharing. And thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. What a goldmine! Thanks for the tip! I finally wrangled myself some hi-speed interwebs and uploaded a whole bunch of Morning Becomes Eclectic and All Song Considered podcasts, so I'm relishing all this new music. Check out MBE if you aren't familiar- Jason Bentley hosts some AMAZING shows with some fantastic new talent! Def. one of my favorite sources of new music.


  4. I love Dry the River! Thanks for the tip and it's a nice little pick-me-up at work while we're getting pounded with rain and ice in the Northeast!

  5. thank you for stopping by and for this find! i knew the other two, but dry the river is a revelation (plus they reminded me that the new fleet foxes record is out soon, so double the excitement from one event! :)

  6. Enia-So glad to hear that Fleet Foxes is putting out a new record! I have been waiting, not so patiently, to hear this good news!
