this will be on pop etc's (formerly the morning benders) new album. melodically, this still feels like vintage benders to me. but instrumentally, we're hearing a whole different beast. r&b-ing all over the place.

some songs take hold of your heart. some songs lift your soul. some songs climb in through your ear and get stuck in your head. but every once in a while a song comes along and it grabs you by your guts and refuses to let go. that's this song.
if they try and slow you down, tell them all to go to hell.

i have no idea what this is from. some sort of european talent show and the audience/judges seem unimpressed. but i'm pretty impressed. especially because it shows how well kristian mattson's voice works outside of the hyper specific folk context in which we usually hear it. reminds me a bit of van morrison.

umm...did y'all know that sam sparro has FINALLY released new music??? new album is forthcoming, but first single is here (out for a few weeks now) and it's a classic (read: unstoppable) sam sparro song. the perfect mix of funk, pop, soul and r&b. dayum.

you can stream the debut self-titled album by eight and a half (two parts the stills to one part broken social scene) over at paste. a couple of strong numbers, but the band doesn't seem to have totally found it's footing just yet.
