I'm shocked that no one has mentioned She and Him! I saw them play on Conan the other night, with Yo La Tengo playing backup. My roommate has been raving about them since the first album came out recently, but I fell in love when I saw the performance. I almost feel a little sheepish talking about them-they're such the 'new', 'quintessential', indie rock band; the lead singer is Zooey Deschanel, somewhat of an 'indie' film star; they're album cover is typical, simple, 'indie' band artwork:

I've read many comments on forums that they're just another lame 'indie' rock band, which is why I want to shy away from that label, because so many people are understandably jaded when a band is categorized that way these days. The term is overused and too vague anyway. This band is special.
The music marvelous. It ranges from old school country to soul to rock. Her voice is a sort of twangy, Patsy Cline-ish style. It is SO talented-I can't stop listening!
Here's a clip of the performance on Conan. The video is a bit finicky for some reason, so ya'll might have to reload a couple of times. There was one on youtube, but it was promptly removed by NBC Universal..those fuckers mad.gif

so, I didn't get to see los camp as they were on stupidly early (who puts a headlining band on at 6.00?) but I did get to meet a couple of them and they were very nice (and so tiny!). Hopefully I'll see them over the summer.

I did get to see:
Sky Larkin
Lovers

missladyj, ditto on the erykah badu album. it is the true definition of album, i.e. no skipping songs or random; you must play it from track 1 forward to get the whole effect

the new Erkah Badu album is insane. I mean this in a good way

i picked up two reissues of my all time favorite chi-town punk rock band , Naked Raygun at a record fair
Jettison and Understand so bad ass.

i also got the single of Run DMC's It's Tricky, Craig Mack - Flava in ya ear , Pharcyde otha fish and Queen Latifa's Had it up to Here!

I think she should only rap. nothing else. I don't want to hear her sing, watch her hawk makeup or make movies, just rap.

EVIL! Mornington! You shake your ass extra hard for me, girl!

I cannot stop digging Lyrics Born. It is going to be my summer song. A groove so deep you could trip over it. It makes me wish I hade a pimped out Impala & some skanky video hos to dance around me. I like it, I love it, OH!

Holy crap, Batman. That leading Lyrics Born track (I Like It I Love It.) has a groove so deep you could trip on it. Talk about a rumpshaker. My booty is mightily pleased.

And Devotchka. One of the bestest local bands ever. I saw them countless times on the crazy cheap. So good.

why is it i am turned off by any band that gives themselves a more poppy/commercial edge for consumers sake? despite that, i'm diggin on the travellers. they kinda sound like a lot of stuff that's hot right now... the shins et al. however, i think cause they've got chic vox i'm on it. either way, worth checking out.
