I have long loved The Submarines. I also love the story of how they got together, broke up, got together again when they learned they were both writing songs about the other, made an album combining those songs and got married. “You, Me and the Bourgeoisie”, is my song of the moment. (even though I just discovered it was used in an Apple commercial) You can hear it on their website and I think it will make you happy.
My music collection could really use some freshening up – what’s your song or band of the moment?

LOVE & RUMMAGE GOODIES at make something
February 11, 2009 at 9:48 am
I’m loving Seabear at the moment. Sort of an Icelandic Belle + Sebastian but with fiddles! Good sleepy morning tunes.
when i was reading your entry i had seabear in mind too!
their songs have been on constant repeat on my ipod.
particular seabear songs that i really love:
i sing i swim
i could say
who’d of known
we will not grow old
live like you’re dying
gravity rides everything
window bird – stars
overboard – ingrid michaelson
boneless – the notwist
come out of the shade – the perishers
say a lot – buddy
coffee shop – landon pigg
samson – regina spektor
you should give them a try 🙂
p.s: i forgot to add the weepies! these are my favorite songs by them:
painting by chagall
living in twilight
gotta have you
nobody knows me at all
take it from me
world spins madly on
other favorites by stars:
elevator love letter
one more night
in our bedroom after the war
Belle & Sebastian (always)
Kings of Convenience
Joan as a Police Woman
are always playing on my ipod!
I’m currently listening to Jenny Lewis, Wolf Parade, and Caribou. They just won the Polaris…but I found them first. 🙂 I will check out these others!
First, the workroom and makesomething have become regular sources of (local!eee!) inspiration and fun for me. Thank you!
Ahem, so a friend made me a CD that included a track by Brandi Carlile…I’m not sure what the other tracks are because I’ve been listening to her on repeat. Love. As soon as my ship comes in, her album “The Story” will be mine.
Oh, the song is “Turpentine.”
It’s been out for a while now, but the latest Beirut album (The Flying Club Cup) is quite possibly the most beautiful thing I’ve ever heard!
Heather – seabear?! firstly, that name is just too cute. and i bought the album right away on itunes. love it! thank you so much for the suggestion.
Melissa – wow, that’s a great list. that will keep me busy for a while.
Concha – i really like Kings of Convenience, and I’ve never heard of Joan as a Police Woman – I’m going to check it out!
ella – i’ve been meaning to check out jenny lewis, i’ll get on it.
amy – i’m so glad you’re enjoying it all. (btw – your quilt blocks are so so lovely!!) i’m going to check out ‘turpentine’, the name is intriguing, to say the least.
kalpna – hmm.. great suggestion! i love beirut. my favourite song it ‘postcards from italy’, it make me want to dance around!
I love the Go Find, the Sea and Cake (Sam Prekop too), Mojave 3 and the Notwist. I could go on. Oh – if you like Kings of C, check out the Whitest Boy Alive. It’s Erlend O. with another band.
I was just thinking that I needed some fresh music. I have no suggestions here, but I’m glad to read everyone else’s!
Wowwee! I’m slowly going through all these amazing suggestions and loving all the new tunes. thank you thank you!
