#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 

Because I'm feeling all A.D.D. tonight, here are the twittering briefs of some tunes that have recently fallen into my aural cavities........

Posted originally for a cover & criminally overlooked since, Brit Alessi's enigmatic voice powers this reflective track quite wonderfully.

Brand new w/ album upcoming, starts off almost pop-punk-esque but builds to more familiar THS. Gets better as goes on but hope it's a grower.

Folk in the true sense of the the word w/ a real sense of lifelong reflection in the vocal, supported by warm guitars & soft keys. Promising.

Optimistic slice of languid Americana...half content, half melancholy...with a simple melody & Bob Mould-esque, husky singing. Most pleasant.

Delightfully bright blend of pop melody against offbeat indie-rock rhythm, their newie Big Echo needs to be sought out on the back of this.
