Took a little longer than usual with Suri’s illness, but I’m driven, I tells ya–DRIVEN!! Here’s my favorite songs of the last few months.
Veronica Falls doesn’t re-invent the wheel. They’re not trying to do something original here: this is a faithful interpretation of the Sarah Records/C-86 sound. I’m good with that.
Caravan Palace is fairly new group, and my impression is that they’re better known in Europe than in the States. They combine modern electronic dance beats with Quintette du Hot Club-era European jazz for driving, insistent party tracks. The lyrics are forgettable, but the music combination works together well–and check out the cool, steampunky video!
