RECOMMENDATION SUNDAY!

I recommend spending time with family above anything else. I've been enjoying mine lately. The too drunk uncle, the hours I spend trying to explain what I do in music stuff my great aunts, the reassuring my grandma that I'm safe and sane. The loud voices, glasses of wines, louder voices and then yelling arguments about who's to blame for the national economic turmoil are all filled with love. They really are.

But now let's get onto the music:

My love for Ted Leo has resurfaced. It's been to long since I listened to The Tyranny of Distance. Above all else, I recommend that album this week.

Lady Sovereign has a new album out - Jigsaw - and it's really been my dance rap jam. I get so wrapped up in self-reflecting indie rock that I forget to let loose sometimes. She's five foot one, she's English, and she's a white rap artist in a primarily black grime scene.

The Jakes - an incredible unsigned band out of California. Huge guitar pieces, giant choruses and refined melodies - they're young, but they're making me speechless. Probably my favorite unsigned band right now.

Hybrid cover. It works, but only because it's Ted.

I do believe coming across this video will reinvigorate my appreciation for Ted Leo. I think I have a mp3 of this, or if I don't, I should.
