Maybe If You Squint Your Ears

My "recently added" playlist is quite good right now, through no fault of my own, and I thought I would pass a few highlights on to you, the reader. I think most of them sound like a more popular musical touchstone that might make the songs slightly more accesible and make it more likely that you click.

The Hold Steady - They took one of my favorite songs by The Boss and asked the question: What would it sound like if Springsteen wrote this song for Born to Run instead of Nebraska?

Joel Plaskett - I don't know who he sounds like but he is releasing a triple album called three and this is his first single. He is coming to Charlottetown next month and I am pumped!

Lykke Li - I thing she is like a nordic Feist (meaning more keyboard and blonde).

The Rural Alberta Advantage - I think they sound like Rock Plaza Central who sound like Neutral Milk Hotel. I'm pretty sure I discovered these guys. If anyone tells you different, don't believe them

The Pains of Being Pure At Heart - Do you ever wonder what the Smiths would sound like if they were twenty years younger and from New York instead of Manchester? Well TPOBPAH attempt to answer that question. It turns out they sound a lot like The Smiths.
