New year, new look, new music

I'm getting ready to go out of town, so this will probably be my only post this week. I hope everyone had a great New Year's Eve, and has a great '007 ahead of them. Mine will include a move from Atlanta to Athens, which will be exciting.

Since I don't have time for in-depth posts on these terrific artists at the moment, I'll leave you with a sampler platter of what I've been enjoying lately. It's heavy on pop and indie folk stuff, but you probably could have guessed that. This would make one heck of a little mix tape, actually. I may have to go grab a CDR...

Madeline - I Left the Light On
Ice Cream Socialists - Day of the Danny
International Falls - On a Roll
The Poison Dart - Rise & Shine
Russian Spy Camera - Svengali What's the Caper
Cars Can Be Blue - I Used to Think
How I Became the Bomb - Fat Girls Talkin Bout Cardio
Tom Brosseau - I Fly Wherever I Go

Wax & Wane - Hell is Here
Titans of Filth - The Morbid Widow's Portrait Gallery
Hope for Agoldensummer - Love Letter
Ideal Free Distribution - Apples and Oranges
Velcro Stars - Seize the Day
Yukon - Marriage
Elephant Parade - Goodbye

Please do let me know what you like -- I'm sure I'll be returning to some of these folks later. If you'd like more info on somebody, let me know. Hopefully I'll be able to check in on things while I'm in New Orleans. Happy new year!

Wow - excellent selection, thanks! I don't think I've heard of a single one of those.

Glad you like.

For those who tried to get the Ice Cream Socialists and Elephant Parade but had trouble, I've rehosted those files. Should work fine now.

Right, having listened to them all a few times through, I think The Poison Dart, Russian Spy Camera, Ideal Free Distribution and Yukon are floating my boat the most. More of them would be most appreciated.

Are these guys local to you, or have I just not been doing my homework properly?

None of them are really local to me, although some are from Athens. Here's the rundown on the ones Matthew mentioned:

Russian Spy Camera - Athens, GA
Ideal Free Distribution - Lexington, KY
The Poison Dart - Langley, BC, Canada
Yukon - Vancouver, BC, Canada

the ideal free distribution is on Happy Happy Birthday To Me Records which is based in Athens, GA. so, there's a good semi-local link for ya.
