Ladies y Gents, it’s been too long. Where have you been? I’ve been listening to some music and not writing blog posts. I actually haven’t been listening to as much music as I previously did. I am no longer privilege to hours upon hours of music enjoyment. Because of this I will be cutting back on how often I post a Friday Four-Play. Fret not, for I will be coming out with a couple “Best of 2012” lists. Other than that, Friday Four-Play should be a monthly endeavor. Perhaps this will allow for some movie reviews? Maybe even that Court Jester one promised years ago?

As for this week, we have a wonderful slew of modern track with twists from the 80s. I must admit that I’ve been listening to this playlist as often as possible. I was pleased to finally see even an EP from Adam Green & Binki Shapiro. I want an LP but I’ll have to wait just like I am for Shout Out Louds new album that should drop in the early part of 2013. I’m a fan, to say the least and another album added to their repertoire is welcomed.

Track list:

  1. Here I Am – Adam Green & Binki Shapiro
  2. Homewrecked – Empires
  3. Blue Ice – Shout Out Louds
  4. When I Dream – Ra Ra Riot

Ladies y Gents, it’s the weekend and it’s time to see Skyfall! But apart from that, it’s time to enjoy some new music right in your ear-holes. I’ve got some sweet beats including a new single from Local Natives. This precedes a new album that should be out the beginning of next year. CHVRCHES song in the mix caps it off with that synth, 80s groove that’s been so big as of late. I really hope CHVRCHES has an album coming out soon. Cheers.

Track List:

  1. Leaves – Cheers Elephant
  2. Breakers – Local Natives
  3. Windy Cindy – People Get Ready
  4. The Mother We Share – CHVRCHES

Ladies y Gents, it’s Friday, Friday. Got to get down on Friday. Enjoy this week’s selection of four tracks. I went with some tracks I’ve been accruing for a while now. Now is the time to let them soar. These tracks fit together as a welcome to the forth-coming winter. Yes, I know we are about halfway through fall, but the weather is coldening. So enjoy this selection as you prepare for the a doozy of a winter.

Track list:

  1. Old Pine – Ben Howard
  2. I’ll Get Along – Michael Kiwanuka
  3. The Fox in the Snow – Belle & Sebastian
  4. I’m Not Talking – A.C. Newman

Ladies y Gents, welcome. Bienvenidos! It’s time for Friday Four-Play because it’s Friday! Cue theme music! Dum-duh-doo dee, dum dum dum dum, do-do-deeeeee. Thanks for stopping by. Boy (and/or girl), have I got four tracks for you. They are as always catchy and contain notations of the musical variation. I have recently come to the idea that I don’t know much (i.e. zilch) about music or its analysis. I just have an insatiable ear for its chicken soup-like qualities. So please tell me what you think about the music posted here. Heck, you could even go back listen to old playlists and retro-post, it still counts. Just be sure to listen to this weeks (do-do-deeeeee) Friday Four-Play. Cheers!

Track List:

  1. Blue Eyes – Ladyhawke
  2. Heavenly Bodies – Tamaryn
  3. Visions – Letting Up Despite Great Faults
  4. Runnin’ – Sinkane

Ladies y Gents, it’s another late post. I have no excuses— Well, uh, maybe… No, I don’t have creative excuses. This week I decided to mix it up, take a break from music. Don’t worry it’s still a playlist but this time with stand-up comedy! It’s hard to find clean comedy, so it took awhile to find the cleaner tracks and even then… mixed results. So sit back and check out some of my favorite comedians, available on Spotify, perform without much cursing.

Track List:

  1. Bomb Water – Hannibal Buress
  2. Can You Believe It – Tig Notaro
  3. Chase Through the Subway – John Mulaney
  4. Yep – Demetri Martin

Ladies y Gents, it’s Friday and so you know what time it is… (Cue theme song) <insert theme song here> (fade out theme song). This week I have a presentation of some new songs I’ve discovered this week. All the songs are from albums recently released. I’ve been on a kick trying to discover new music and Spotify has made it a lot easier with the apps they offer in-browser. I’ve been using We Are Hunted and Pitchfork to see the latest and greatest. I recommend them. Sit back, relax and enjoy this Chicken Soup four your ears. Cheers.

Track List:

  1. Close – Sun Airway
  2. Everybody’s Heart’s Breaking Now – Lavender Diamond
  3. Be Proud of Your Kids – Melody’s Echo Chamber
  4. Canterbury Bell – Levek

Ladies y Gents, TGIF! Am I right? No, seriously, T G it’s F. This week I present one of the many forums where I find new areas of exploration in the music realm. As I’m sure you know, I am a huge fan of soundtracks. So this week I have four tracks from one of the first movies where I thought “I have to have these songs.” The soundtrack, unfortunately to He Died with a Felafel in His Hands, is not available in the US, it being an Australian film. It’s a brilliant episodic film starring Noah Taylor, who you might recognize from Shine, Almost Famous, or perhaps, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. Here’s a sampling of the tracks you’ll hear if you watch the Felafel which is available on Netflix, so go watch it now! The full soundtrack would be well worth piecing together as I’ve done on my own, but there are too many songs to fit all in one four-play.

Track List:

  1. California Dreamin’ – The Mamas and the Papas
  2. Golden Brown – The Stranglers
  3. Buy Me A Pony – Spiderbait
  4. The Human Germ – Snog
