Some lo-fi indie goodness straight from the bowels of the American Nashville considered the south? Regardless a short sweet song from these Nashville kids.

The song is Tiny Echoes Page

Theres a pretty good band from Chicago called Morning Recordings. Solo work of Pramod Tummala. The album Music for places was recorded with some solo work and the contribution of many other musicians, generally from around the Chicago area. Also Fred Lonberg-Holm, Cellist of Wilco has an appearance. The song I am putting up is really relaxing and the whole album is very laid-back.
Also visit:
Melochrome-Pramod's old band.
They have some good downloads.
Enjoy of course

Bishop Allen

So I was looking through my Mp3's and found by a band called Bishop Allen and the song was called The Monitor.

I researched the band and found out the song was from their March EP, named "March".

The Band is doing one Ep a month for this year.

They provide alot of mp3's on their site.

Wake alone in a women's room that I hardly know

Thanks to Sean for letting me in on this gem-of-a-song. Cursive, Saddle Creek, that's all you need to know.

Jim Guthrie

Jim Guthrie, a musician most infamous for his commercial-hit (pun intended), "Hand's In My Pocket", has a great solo career. Out of Toronto, Jim plays an eclectic taste of pop tunes. Here's one of my favourites, "So Small". It's not what I had to drink that makes whatever I feel sink.

Goodbye Friend, Welcome Lover

I've been looking for some good electronic or instrumental music lately and I came across this band.
They're a great electronic/pop band from Montreal. They're getting pretty big, playing good shows all around. They are playing North by North East in Toronto this year. They did a show for CBC radio 3 and have played numerous other festivals.
The band is called Hexes and Ohs. This song is really great, the whole album is outstanding. I highly recommend giving it a listen.
Listen listen listen.

Wrong move Sucka

I didn't love Dane Cook until right now...yeah, I know, I was missing out.
It's warm outside but it's soaking wet, and I kind of love today.
Anyway, here's a song by a great saddle-creek band that I am sure you already know, but I will share anyway.
This band is my top five from the label and I think this song is excellent.

Books On Tape

This is another fine band from Alien 8 Recordings (alongside The Unicorns, Think About Life to name a few). Slow, rhythmically sound, and selective to your mood.

Pop in the Summer

Thank you John and Tommy for allowing me to post here, you sexy bastards.
I was just listening to what I think is the best ultra-pop song...ever? perhaps...
I came across this band by accident and downloaded the full album, and I absolutely adore it.

The Mohawk Lodge - Making Music

Here's another great band from White Whale Records (hometown: Vancouver), the first being The Castle Project. Acoustic with classic rock roots (reminds me of Canned Heat's "Going up the Country" for some reason). Nonetheless soothing and quiet.

Think About life

The song Paul cries is a single from Montreal's "Think about Life" self-titled debut with a catchy dance beat which will make you want to dance like an idiot...well it made me want to.

Think About Life - Paul Cries

The song is called "Did I step on your trumpet?". After hearing it for the first time about a month ago I have been addicted to it.

Damien Jurado - Texas To Ohio

Mr. Jurado used to play in hardcore bands with Dave Bazan (of Pedro The Lion fame). His successful solo career is more toned down, with acoustic ballads and the occasional head boppin'/foot tappin' electric guitar song; this is one of those. Not quite folk, and surely not hardcore, this tune will make you whip out the ole' air guitar nonetheless. Enjoy.
