Trummors – Bogus Bruce

When I think about AM radio (yes, I think about AM radio), this is pretty much what comes to mind. Sunny, straight-ahead grooves that smack of the 70s, regardless of when the song was actually released. Anne Cunningham and David Lerner of Trummors double up on vocals, putting a little texture on the melodic sheen of the track. Pull on your bell bottoms and chill out while you download “Bogus Bruce” above.

favorites of 2010: the forgotten

The problem with making any sort of list is you inevitably forget something. We are not immune. After publishing our Favorites of 2010 list, we of course came up with a handful of things we should have included. In no particular order, they are:

Band of Horses – Infinite Arms
Ted Leo and the Pharmacists – The Brutalist Bricks
The National – High Violet
Peter Gabriel – Heroes
The Whigs – Black Lotus
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – Home*

After publishing this, we’ll probably think of twenty more things, but we’ve got to draw the line somewhere.

*Though released in 2009, it really got its legs in 2010 so we’re counting it anyway.
