Cat Lovers Unite

Okay, so I really wanted to talk about First Nation, but I dont' have the cd yet. First Nation started out as a couple of girls (Nina & Kate) playing around NYC together. Then they added Melissa who's played drums in Wikkid and Telepathe. Anyways, they got noticed by Animal Collective and signed to their label Paw Tracks. The cd came out this past week, so someone buy it and tell me how it is. I have great hopes for them, as one of their friends is BARR, who is awesome. Go be their friends and listen to the mp3s on myspace, of course.

Now, I know you've heard Psapp, but that's because you watch Grey's Anatomy every week and heard their theme song. The duo have made quite the rounds with music on Grey's, the OC, and Nip/Tuck. It's ambient, ethereal, maybe a little poppy. Recommended for fans of the Postal Service, Frou Frou, and the like. Not The Like, but etc. They were signed by Domino and released their album The Only Thing I Ever Wanted this past Tuesday. They are currenty playing with Jose Gonzalez and Juana Molina. I am jealous of anyone who gets to see that bill.

Dad's Breakdown (from Do Something Wrong ep)

Calm Down (from Tiger, My Friend)

About Fun (Windows video clip. sorry it's a clip, but it's too cute not to share)

Or, go hear the "famous" songs on their myspace page.
P.S. it seems you can only be their friend if you're a kitty.
