Walter Meego ~ Forever

meegohere is another one of those records i overlooked in 2008: Walter Meego’s pop powerhouse debut Voyager. their track Girls was hot in the blogosphere last summer – as well as a number of remixes – but i neglected to fetch the whole record until recently. it is warm and riffy pop with an electronic emphasis and makes for feeling good all day long.

M. Ward ~ Never Had Nobody Like You

23 01 2009

hold-timeMatt Ward’s great new record Hold Time is due to hit the streets on 17 February and has guest performances Jason Lytle of the band Grandaddy, Lucinda Williams, Tom Hagerman of DeVotchKa, and on the present track, Zooey Deschanel: She to M. Ward’s Him. even this early in the year, having given it a couple of listens, i’m pretty sure you’ll be seeing this on my Best of 09 list.

the full album is available for streaming at National Public Radio
