In the spirit of the my last post, I figured I'd drop a quickie on y'all with a few of the bands I've been listening to this last week or two. I feel like a lot of these bands have been around a while and for some reason have just flown under my radar. Well, I knew about The Swell Season, but only insofar as I knew about Glen Hansard and Marketa Irlgova (because I saw Once, which is an incredible movie). I guess since I have the soundtrack I even technically had The Swell Season's CD without even knowing it. So, here's five songs from five bands I'm digging on presented without comment. Let me know what y'all think! And, more importantly, let me know about more good music to listen to!

Delta Spirit

The Felice Brothers

The Swell Season

Justin Townes Earle

Elvis Perkins in Dearland

I should say that I discovered a couple of these bands through the wonderful folks over at bham.fm and one of them through Rachael. So they deserve some of the credit. Give it to 'em.

And go love on Some New Trend while you're at it.

Swell Season makes my heart ache.

Elvis Perkins in Dearland bring John Lennon gone reggae to mind, which makes me insanely happy.

I obsess in cycles. Right now it's Spoon, Bonnie Prince Billy(as usual), The Dandy Warhols, Queen Adreena, The Mountain Goats..I'll stop now. ^_^

I just can't get behind Spoon and Prince Billy no matter how I try. Don't know why...
