Song of the Week – The Cinematics

These Scotland natives surely have a hit track in their newest single, “Break.” It was produced by Stephen Hague, who did most of New Order and Pet Shop Boys records back in the day.

Plus, the cover has a burning typewriter on it….

Listen to it here. (yep, that’s a link)

Song of the Week

CB – Who You Are

Originally uploaded by whoisdavejones.

Cary Brothers (yep, just one dude) just released the first single from his upcoming release, “Who You Are.” It’s a pretty fantastic track with bleeding shades of U2 and Coldplay. I’m sure you’ve heard his stuff, most notably being “Blue Eyes” off of the Garden State soundtrack. Enjoy.

Check out “Who You Are” right here.

Favorite Music of 2006

Well, it’s almost 2007, which means another year of music is upon us. This list is simply a log of things I enjoyed listening to this year and is by no means comprehensive. I’m sure there are a ton of great albums that I missed or didn’t have enough money to buy. Look it over, comment, argue and send me your list.

Cheers. -DTJ
