The premise for "Repeat Offenders" is simple--take 7 songs that I have played continuously over the course of the past week, and share them with you. Classics, new tracks, hits, rarities--anything goes, as long as I couldn't get it out of my head! Now to the songs, in no particular order.
Ted Leo & the Pharmacists- "Gimme The Wire"
Thirty-somethings punk rocker Ted Leo has stayed true to his career's remarkably consistent body of work--this hidden gem off his latest album shows him in his element
White Rabbits - "Percussion Gun"
This NYC indie-sextet is, well, percussive to say to the least
The Antlers - "Sylvia"
Following up my love of Bon Iver, Peter Silberman and Co. created a cathartic masterpiece with their 2009 masterpiece Hospice
Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti - "I Wanna Be Young"
Avant-garde musician loosely associated freak-folk scene shines on this track
Lightning Dust - "Antonia June"
Amber Webber and Joshua Wells' side-project from Vancouver stoner-rock group Black Mountain exploring their haunting minimal beauty
Wye Oak - "For Prayer"
Following up my love of Beach House, this duo's 2009 album The Knot should definitely be heard by all fans of their Baltimore counterparts
Dennis Wilson - "Holy Man (Instrumental)"
Off his only solo album, this track has all the signs of the aged former-Beach Boy through its warmth and beauty
