i just uploaded these for [ profile] musictoyourlips and figured i'd pass the links along in case anyone else was interested. which you should be. mwk = ♥.

midwest kings (2003)
judging a bullet (2005)
incoherent with desire to move on [ep] (2006)
luna despierta [ep] (2008)

if you only download one, i'd rec luna despierta but it's all of the good. here's david covering "anodyne" from that ep.

please, if you like these and you have any extra cash, buy them! they're all on itunes. :)

i've been listening to this song all day, so here, have it: ani difranco // untouchable face (live)
think i'm going for a walk now
i feel a little unsteady
i don't want nobody to follow me
'cept maybe you
i could make you happy you know
if you weren't already
i could do a lot of things
and i do

tell you the truth i prefer
the worst of you
too bad you had to have a better half
she's not really my type
but i think you two are forever
and i hate to say it but
you're perfect together

so fuck you
and your untouchable face
and fuck you
for existing in the first place
and who am i
that i should be vying for your touch
and who am i
i bet you can't even tell me that much

i've been listening to bloc party somewhat obsessively lately for some reason, and i listened to this song like 15x today and it magically unstuck me on some fic plot points that were driving me up the wall, and it also gave me a title for said fic. so, here, have it.
bloc party // i still remember

i, i still remember
how you looked
that afternoon
there was only you
you said "it's just like a full moon"
blood beats faster in our veins
we left our trousers by the canal
and our fingers they almost touched )
semisweet: ([fob] i slept with someone in fob.)
i'm sure i've posted this before, probably a bunch of times, but i hadn't listened to it in a while and it's one of my all-time favorite songs, so.

rhett miller // fireflies (feat. rachael yamagata)
never say you'll never leave
'cause you'll never know 'till you try
in a jar, fireflies
only last for one night


ALSO! butch walker and pink will be on ellen tomorrow (errr, today). YOU SHOULD WATCH THEM, IT WILL BE A++++ because they are fucking awesome.
semisweet: ([fob] i slept with someone in fob.)
i ripped the audio from the bob dylan/ pepsi ad and thought i'd share.

bob dylan & // refresh anthem (forever young)

here's the commercial if you missed it. i thought it was pretty cool, even if is an awfully odd choice imo.

also, budweiser horsey ads: ♥♥♥♥
semisweet: ([fob] i slept with someone in fob.)
 this came up on shuffle and i'd totally forgotten about it, but it's kind of awesome.

the snow police // every car you chase

it's a mash-up of 'chasing cars' and 'every breath you take.' :)
semisweet: ([fob] i slept with someone in fob.)
here bbs, have a couple of songs from artists i am newly loving. ♥
the hold steady // one for the cutters
the hold steady // sketchy metal
bonus in case you missed it the other day: the hold steady // stuck between stations

[similar artists according to include the replacements, ted leo + the pharmacists, the walkmen and my morning jacket]

company of thieves // oscar wilde
company of thieves // old letters

[ lists a bunch of similar artists that i've never even heard of, so i'll just say they sound like what would happen if regina spektor and fiona apple had a baby that sang in an indie band, maybe]

eta one more: katy perry // i'm still breathing


semisweet: ([kelly] like a little black dress.)
does anyone have a copy of "my life would suck without you" minus the *music on demand* lady?

here's the copy i have (with *music on demand* lady) in case anyone wants it: kelly clarkson // my life would suck without you

ETA: [ profile] _kittenheels ftw! untagged: kelly clarkson // my life would suck without you

i'm not sure how i feel about it? idk. i like it and it's fun, i guess. it's just not really terribly kelly to sounds more like katy perry or something. it's ok, i'll just listen to it relentlessly until i love it. XD

also, you guys are killing me with your idol excitement. I JUST CAN'T WATCH IT. I CAAAAAN'T. i always get way too wrapped up - i always said AI was my abusive boyfriend and I HAVE TO BREAK THE CYCLE. /o\ i was fine about not watching it until everyone got excited and now i'm all a;lfjg;jkhgk. *watches buffy instead*

the hold steady // stuck between stations
there are nights when i think that sal paradise was right.
boys and girls in america have such a sad time together.
sucking off each other at the demonstrations
making sure their makeup’s straight
crushing one another with colossal expectations.
dependent, undisciplined and sleeping late.

she was a really cool kisser and she wasn’t all that strict of a christian.
she was a damn good dancer but she wasn’t all that great of a girlfriend.
he likes the warm feeling but he’s tired of all the dehydration.
most nights are crystal clear
but tonight it’s like he’s stuck between stations
on the radio.

AMAZING. where the fuck have i been?
semisweet: ([fob] i'm not the desperate type.)
two excellent covers - one by request and one because it's making me cry. i assume you can figure out which is which.

midtown // your love [the outfield]
the sundays // wild horses [rolling stones]

ps: dear blender magazine, plz suck my non-existent cock. kthx, tracy.
semisweet: ([fob] i slept with someone in fob.)
i've posted this before, but [ profile] letloverule42 wanted it and i will happily use any excuse to post and/or go all ♥_♥ over this song. so.

something corporate // konstantine

ALL TIME FAVORITE SONG EVER OKAY? even if you think most of the music i post is lame, this bears pretty much no resemblance to any of it, and you should download it and listen to it. on headphones. close your eyes. this song kills me. i don't even know.

now i'll post the lyrics because...idk, just because.
i can't imagine all the people that you know
and the places that you go
when the lights are turned down low
and i don't understand all the things you've seen
but i'm slipping in between
you and your big dreams
it's always you
in my big dreams )
semisweet: (fob. the best boys.)
omg, ok, so i was coming to post this live butch walker album that i promised poor [ profile] wearemany, like, two weeks ago, so let's do that.

butch walker // leavin' the game on luckie street

tracklist. )

anyway, that is why i came on lj before i went to bed, because i was determined to post it before i forget again.

but then pete had to go and post this in a blog, and just. omg! december 16, please happen now.

ps: this picture makes me hot.

semisweet: (fob. his arms her ears.)
this is maybe my favorite song off of butch walker's new album, so you should all check it out, and if you like it, go buy sycamore meadows. ♥

butch walker // here comes the... (feat. p!nk)
here comes the heartache
the move-out day
the excuses for my friends
here comes the reasons i have to justify
it was better in the end
here comes the last time i'm gonna kiss you
the first night sleeping alone
here comes the hardest thing
we've ever known

i seriously cannot stop listening to it.

also, the video for "the weight of her" is SO cute and awesome and fun.

so i was dicking around on myspace while listening to christmas music, and i decided i needed to add some christmas songs to my profile. which i was in the process of doing when i discovered that this song is nowhere to be found on myspace, which is just not ok, so i'm sharing it with you guys.

vienna teng // the atheist christmas carol
It's the season of grace coming out of the void
Where a man is saved by a voice in the distance
It's the season of possible miracle cures
Where hope is currency and death is not the last unknown
Where time begins to fade
And age is welcome home

It's the season of eyes meeting over the noise
And holding fast with sharp realization
It's the season of cold making warmth a divine intervention
You are safe here you know now

Don't forget
Don't forget I love, I love
I love you

It's the season of scars and of wounds in the heart
Of feeling the full weight of our burdens
It's the season of bowing our heads in the wind
And knowing we are not alone in fear
Not alone in the dark

and because it's awesome and if you don't have it you REALLY need it: the pogues // fairytale of new york
It was Christmas Eve babe
In the drunk tank
An old man said to me, won't see another one
And then he sang a song
The Rare Old Mountain Dew
I turned my face away
And dreamed about you

Got on a lucky one
Came in at ten to one
I've got a feeling
This year's for me and you
So Happy Christmas
I love you baby
I can see a better time
When all our dreams come true

They've got cars big as bars
They've got rivers of gold
But the wind goes right through you
It's no place for the old
When you first took my hand
On a cold Christmas Eve
You promised me
Broadway was waiting for me

You were handsome
You were pretty
Queen of New York City
When the band finished playing
They howled out for more
Sinatra was swinging,
All the drunks they were singing
We kissed on a corner
Then danced through the night

The boys of the NYPD choir
Were singing "Galway Bay"
And the bells were ringing out
For Christmas day )

semisweet: (politics. these fucking candidates.)
one more for your election playlists. ;)

pennywise // fuck authority
you know
you've got a right to take control
you gotta take offense against the status quo
no way we're gonna stand for it today
fight for your rights
it's time we had our say!

i say fuck authority
silent majority
raised by the system
now its time to rise against them
we're sick of your treason
sick of your lies
fuck no, we won't listen
we're gonna open your eyes!

|m| >.< |m|

ps: relevant OCC!

semisweet: (p!atd. yes we can.)
goodness, i'm spammy today. sorry darlings.

but! in honor of today, have this: jack's mannequin // changes (david bowie cover)
and these children that you spit on
as they try to change their worlds
are immune to your consultations
they're quite aware of what they're going through

(turn and face the strain)
don't tell them to grow up and out of it
