#MusicMonday - Songs in 140 Characters (Or Less)

"It is my ambition to say in ten sentences; what others say in a whole book."
- Friedrich Nietzsche

This little baby featurette started last week and I dug the challenge of brevity over waffle. So here again for #MusicMonday are summaries of miscellaneous songs hitting the H-T-A stereo over the last week:

MP3: Lou Barlow - Gravitate (from Insound)
Alt-rock hero goes his own more acoustic route (vaguely Days of The New) but no less laden in reverb fuzz. Midas touch on most music he creates.

MP3: Broken Bells - Vaporize
Shins frontman hits up Danger Mouse for some beats that effectively underlay the familiar genteel acoustics and floating tones of Mr Mercer.

MP3: The Splinters - Splintered Bridges
Spiky femme alt/punk with a forced sounding, raw production and wayward vocals. Simple, sometimes catchy but mostly unspectacular.

MP3: Monsters Are Not Myths - Republican Girls
An offbeat ode to Conservative ladies, who can apparently bugger up one's world. Slighty odd but surprisingly memorable bluesy rock.
