It's BAAAAAAAACK! After the unfortunate hiatus thanks to the strike, Grey's was back last night with a new episode, "Where The Wild Things Are" that wasn't all that entertaining if you ask me. I was really disappointed in the big return but that's the way it goes sometimes. Perhaps I built it up too much in my mind...who knows. I was happy to see Cheech Marin on television again. I just love him. And is it just me or does Katherine Heigl look even more amazing than usual these days? Love and marriage suit her well but then again I suppose everyone looks better in love.
Here's hoping next week's episode has more substance and more music. In the meantime, here are the three songs featured last night...
Goldfrapp - "Some People"
This track is from Goldfrapp's recently released fourth studio album Seventh Tree and admittedly, I've had a copy since January and have yet to give it a proper listen. Having said that I will say however that this...I sorta dig this track. It's a pretty big departure from what's been done in the past but different is good sometimes and this is.
Lykke Li - "I'm Good, I'm Gone"
Fresh off her (what I hear was exceptional) SXSW performance, this 22 year old Swedish import is poised to make a big splash here in the states this year when her debut album Youth Novels finally drops here on May 6th. Helped along by Bjorn Yttling (that guys is EVERYWHERE these days...what is he, the Kanye of the indie scene?) of Peter, Bjorn & John fame the album is pure addictive indie pop. Discover more about this lovely songbird, her music and her shows on her website and keep your ears open this year as I'm sure you'll hear more about her as time goes by.
Greg Laswell - "What A Day"
My friend Ashley turned me on to Greg a few years ago when she sent me a copy of the song "Sing, Theresa Says" from his album Through Toledo that had a note attached that read "You will LOVE this song" and she was right, I did. In fact, it was my favorite from the album and for some strange reason I find myself singing the chorus often even when it's been ages since I've heard it. Greg's quite a talent and this track from his latest effort, a six track EP, is a beauty.
And for the convenience of those who always seem to ask, a .zip file of the songs (minus "Sing, Theresa Says")...
