Market Girl by Headlights

Last Week in Music there were definitely some new entries in my musical line up. First up was Samamidon, an awesome musician from Vermont. His style is very mellow and folk-y and I ended up listening to him a ton. He also ended up being on Sunshine Sometime, the mix I made a few days ago. Next up was These Young Puritans, who I don’t really want to talk about because I’d rather give them their own post.

After that was Erick Messler, who I can’t find anything about. NOTHING. Usually I can dig something up about people on Google but I know nothing about this chap. His record is called Dreaming in the Royale Oaks, and I think it was released a couple years ago, but that’s all I’ve got. If anyone knows anymore about him or how to get in touch with him please let me know.

Then came Headlights, who’s new album Some Racing, Some Stopping is really good, especially the intro song ‘Get Your Head Around It’> But my favorite on the album is hands down ‘Market Girl’, which I’ve posted above so you can see what I mean.

Finshing off this round of new music is MGMT, who make ridiculous music, though it’s kind of fun. The rest you guys see pretty much every week, so that’s that!
