Friday grab bag (vacation re-post)

[Greetings! I'm off on a nearly two week vacation for a family reunion near Rome, Georgia. Normally I let the blog go dark during my vacations, but this time I thought I'd re-post a bunch of good stuff from the early days of this blog, back when I knew all four readers by name. This post is from January 19, 2007.]

I'd never heard of Charlotte Hatherley until Warren Ellis posted a link to the video for this song on his blog; seeing the video (which is beautiful to look at, by the way) got this song firmly lodged in my head. Now, I pass on the love to you. From the 2006 Behave EP.

Charlotte Hatherley - Behave

This Boom Bip track came up on my MP3 player recently and made me swoon with delight. It's just so silky and pretty. From the 2005 release Blue Eyed in the Red Room.

Boom Bip - Dos And Donts (with Gruff Rhys)

And this song is really so self-explanatory that even writing this sentence is overkill. From the 2000 release Karen Mantler's Pet Project.

Karen Mantler - My Cat Arnold Is Dead

These and other fine, fine tracks can be heard on Comfort Radio. See you next week.
