Death Cab for Cutie - "You Are a Tourist"

Death Cab for Cutie - You Are a Tourist
————-Death Cab are at it again - like they ever were gonna stop filling our night time drives and contemplative moods with metaphor-filled lyrics and indie-whimsy. The band will release their album Codes and Keys May 31st, but in the meantime Seattle radio station 107.7 The End have the audio link for you to get a glimpse of the album.
  ”You Are a Tourist” is spacey like “Cath” with groovy-distorted guitars and echoes from Ben Gibbard. The song as a whole is solid Death Cab material, listening to them feels oddly nostalgic but new at the same time. We’re looking forward to hearing more of Codes and Keys this May.

Song of the Day

David Guetta feat. Estelle - One Love

—————I made the mistake of listening to “One Love” on the Silent Floor of the library where whispers send panties soaring up people’s rear ends. This song is much too club-ready to hear among the books. David Guetta teamed up with the caramel-smooth swoons of Estelle (American Boy, for those who don’t remember…for shame) to deliver a dance beat worthy of the best glitter-covered venues in the world.

Nick Cave and Warren Ellis- Song for Bob

---------------Ever hear one of those songs that instantly makes you think? My answer to that is "Song for Bob" an airy, haunting song from the 2008 movie "The Assassination of Jesse James." If nothing else from the film, the soundtrack is all-together a mournful and beautiful obituary to outlaw Jesse James and the men who turned against him. The soundtrack composed by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis arrests the listener to a heavy-hearted symphony of strings and piano that makes funeral marches sound like pop songs.

Song of the Day

The Kills - Satellite
——————— The Kills Allison Mosshart and Jamie Hince know that a theatrical, outlaw music video is the way to keep the buzz going on new material.The video looks like an editorialized heist with a wardrobe that would make Nylon jealous and the ultimate getaway car - a vintage Rolls Royce. A macabre yet sultry beat that hints to notions of mischief do more than compliment the duo on “Satellite,” singled from their forthcoming album,Blood Pressures.  This delightfully dark preview to their next album makes us super-excited for more.
