Kathleen Edwards – Sidecar
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros – Man on Fire
This is just a simple ploy to post two songs that I’ve been playing on repeat for the last couple days. Oh god, do I love Kathleen Edwards and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. They’ve got so much heart guts.
I actually can’t believe I haven’t posted the former on my blog yet since she sings some of my favorite songs including “Six O’Clock News”, “Somewhere Else” and “Asking for Flowers”. They are some of the prettiest, sweet songs that I’ve ever heard. Edwards is a lot like Rilo Kiley, but without that tongue-in-check thing that so many indie bands do. No, she’s just bloody honest and happy to share.
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes are no stranger to this blog or my heart guts. This is their new single off an album they’re releasing soon. They stick to the formula we all know of long, jingle jangley songs that feel like they’re meant to be listened to while traversing over the southwest. It’s not a pop song, but it’s still really beautiful and well constructed.
