As promised below and in the annoying talking part of WalCast 5: The Search for Spock (what do you mean, you don't know what I'm talking about? Go read it and listen to it! Geez...), here is the fabled 2-fer in honor of Tuesday, Feb. 2. Enough talk, let's get to it. But leave a comment like your life depended on it. It might. (wink, wink). As always, player below for streaming, link way below for downloading.
Plan B - Mutemath - Picking up the remnants of the defunct band Earthsuit, the N'orleans boys from their first EP, Reset.
Noticed - Mutemath - This one is from their first, self-titled full-length album.
Don't You Evah - Spoon - The indie band's indie band, from down in Austin, TX. Consistently good and original stuff. From Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. Yeah, I know.
The Underdog - Spoon - Possibly my favorite song from Spoon, off the same album listed above. I just couldn't type it twice.
Good Advices - REM - The original college rockers from Athens (well, other than the B52's. and maybe others) from Fables of the Reconstruction. You might call it Reconstruction of the Fables. I don't.
Little America - REM - Going back even one album further to Reckoning, this song was always one of my favorites to cover live.
IT=LOVE - Spouse - Northeastern US band from their 2007 release Relocation Tactics.
Tonight - Spouse - Closer to the same album. That's closer as in "clozer", not being close to something. That wouldn't make any sense.
Man Down - The New Frontiers - Love this album (like you didn't know that already). From the only album from the no-longer together TX band, Mending.
The Day You Fell Apart - The New Frontiers - Another phenomenal song from Mending.
Gazelle City - The Pillows - Come on sunshine, pick me up. If you've never heard of this Japanese pop-rock group, here's your opportunity to remedy that situation. Cuz you're missing out. This is from My Foot.
Sad, Sad Kiddie - The Pillows - From Runner's High.
It's a Shame About Ray - The Lemonheads - Title track from an album everyone should have. Such great stuff.
6ix - The Lemonheads - This one comes from the album Car, Button, Cloth, and is a tribute to Gwynneth Paltrow in the movie Seven.
Subterranean Homesick Alien - Radiohead - One of the best songs from one of the greatest albums ever, OK Computer.
Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead - Awesome song from my personal favorite Radiohead album, The Bends.
Get it while it's hot here.
