Jesse: 5 songs I like 22 August 2011

1. Bon Iver - Perth
Bon Iver has delivered another amazing album. This is the opening track. I really love it.
Last year he made an album with a bunch of friends called Gayngs. This is a live version of my favourite song on the album. Every song on the album is at 69bpm because that's the tempo of 'I'm Not In Love' by 10cc. Pretty pretentious, but still awesome.

2. Gillian Welch - Silver Dagger
Another sick record by Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings.
Here's a video of them playing one of their classics, 'Revelator', live.

3. Angelo Badalamenti - Twin Peaks Theme
I know it's a bit of a weird one but I've only recently got into Twin Peaks and I have to say that I think that the opening credits are probably the best of any TV show, ever. The soundtrack is soooo good. I can happily listen to this for hours. It's probably like torture for some people though.

4. The Antlers - I Don't Want Love
I love his singing! Here's a video of them playing I Don't Want Love in session.

5. Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti - Bright Lit Blue Skies
The whole album is a bit of a patchwork quilt but I really like it. It's pretty lo-fi and pretty 80s. I have this song on repeat play at the moment.
