twin peaks : flavor (stream)

la roux : let me down gently (stream)

it's been five years since la roux broke onto the scene with a debut album just absolutely loaded with synth-pop gems, mostly about heartbreak. she'll be back with a new album this year and this here is the first taste.

landlady : dying day (stream)

p4k very accurately notes the heavy randy newman vibes here. a good tune, to be sure.

hamilton leithauser : st. mary's county (teaser)
