01-25 update: Well, fuckity. Apparently, I broke the uploadsend service. The original links may or may not work - I had no problems this morning, but now they're inaccessible. Hopefully, I will not kill savefile, as well. Try the new links if the original set won't work for you.

some songs: new, old and in-between

Cat Power - Lived in Bars - a good example of how different (or not) her new album is from past work. I think the album was released today.
Also @ savefile link

Blonde Redhead - Messenger - it occurs to me that the voices of these people might drive some listeners insane, but I happen to like them.
Also @ savefile link

Blonde Redhead + David Sylvian - Messenger - same song, except this time David Sylvian sings it. Even good things are better when David Sylvian sings them.
Also @ savefile link

Beck - Missing - uploaded previously, I think, but I'm still awfully fond of it. Moody bossa nova.
Also @ savefile link

Grace Jones - Pull Up To the Bumper - ran across this while making a disco comp. It's amazing to me that when this song came out I was completely oblivious to the not-very-subtext.
Also @ savefile link

Broken Social Scene - Canada vs. America - Starts as coherent noise (A-OK by me) and then turns into an insanely catchy emo-dirge.
Also @ savefile link

Broken Social Scene - Hotel - Not a clue as to the lyrics, really, but this sounds like S-E-X so it's reasonable to think it's about sex, too. I suppose it could be about dishwashing or quitting smoking, but I doubt it.
Also @ savefile link

Magneta Lane - The Constant Lover - another repeat, I think, but if you didn't download it before, do it now. Gravelly garage pop voiced by a world-weary teenager.
Also @ savefile link

Mew - Circuitry of the Wolf and Mew - Chinaberry Tree - if it didn't entail working on an entirely separate computer and disconnecting/reconnecting so many cables, I would have spliced these together. Tracks 1 and 2 off ...and the glass handed kites, listened to in that order for best effect. First, they're verging on metal, then they're almost twee. I think they're Danish, but I can't tell for certain.
Also @ savefile link and savefile link

Neutral Milk Hotel - Song Against Sex - I know they broke up years ago, but I only discovered them last year.
Also @ savefile link

The Long Winters - It'll Be A Breeze - spare and sad and beautiful.
Also @ savefile link

The Selmanaires - Selmanaire Rock - Atlanta 3-piece who sound a lot like an apolitical Gang of Four with a touch of gratuitous falsetto...
Also @ savefile link

The Selmanaires - LMNO6 - ...except when they're a psychobilly band. Or (on other tracks) the evil twins of the Dave Clark Five. They're playing on the 8th here in Nashville and (unless someone has a baby or something) I'm definitely going to be there.
Also @ savefile link

The White Stripes - My Doorbell - I have a hard time looking at Jack White these days - he's turning into the white Michael Jackson. Or, wait, Michael Jackson is white, isn't he?
Also @ savefile link

recommended, but not uploadable: The Cara Cara orange. Sweet, juicy, and, as a bonus, it's pink inside, just like you and me and everyone we know! I got a half-dozen yesterday and I have...one left. I did share one with the birds, though.
