Dance Card: Givers “Up Up Up”

dance card :: givers “up up up” from The Window Seat on Vimeo.

Umm…serious summer 2011 theme song potential anyone? I know what you’re thinking, “But Christy what about that killer Nicki Minaj song Super Bass?” TO that I say,

“This one is for the boys with the booming system
Top down, AC with the cooling system
When he come up in the club, he be blazin’ up
Got stacks on deck like he savin’ up”

Both songs have potential for Summer Song 2011. My advice would be to have Nicki Minaj and Givers record a summer mashup called Super Bass goes Up Up Up. Right?????

Dance Cards are for lovers.



Standby: The Head And The Heart

In between the head and the heart are the vocal chords, and this band has some nice ones. Learn more about the band and get a free mp3 download here.

They have some tour dates coming up so you should go and pick up a copy of their debut record.  I heard that they are going to be re-releasing the debut album on Sub Pop, so be sure to buy the original so that you are cooler than all your friends…..Like that time you bought the first Strokes album with the naked lady’s behind on it, and then  they re-released it in the US without the naked ladies behind on it. And everyone who had the original album with the naked lady’s behind was sooo much cooler. Do you remember that?


Standby: Harry Nilsson

Harry Nilsson is someone every music fan should know. He is one of those fellows who you might not have heard of, but you’ve definitely heard his music. If you’d like a good introduction to him, I recommend starting off with album Nilsson Schmilsson. You can buy it on Amazon here.

Oh and check out  clips from the Son of Dracula rock opera he made with Ringo Star here. Awesome right?!


Standby: The Tallest Man On Earth-The Wild Hunt

Why can’t I stop listening to this song?


Secret Ingredients: John Vanderslice

Who doesn’t like blueberry cobbler, WHO I ask you? This is a recipe from John Vanderslice, we found this recipe in our friend Kara Zuaro’s book. One time I brought John Vanderslice brownies on tour, and he loved them so much he gave me free tickets to the show! He mentioned something about venues being cold, dingy places that could benefit from music fans bringing more home baked goods to concerts. So next time you have a ticket to see Uncle John Vanderslice bring him a  baked treat!

We ate this whole blueberry cobbler in 1 day. There may have been some licking of the pan…just saying. Don’t judge me.


Dance Card: Middle Brother

I cannot stop listening to this album! I rolled down my windows today for the first time this year, and Middle Brother was playing on my ipod. I’ve decided it’s the perfect soundtrack to the beginning of summer. Especially the first song on the record, Blue Eyes.

Oh Deerhunter, thank you for keeping me company when the the fall and winter of Colorado started to take hold. Thank you for being the soundtrack to the first snowfall. This is one of my favorite records of 2010, I’ve actually never seen them perform live. have you? What was it like?

Here is the song Helicopter….for your listening pleasure!


Dance Card: Data Rock “Fa Fa Fa”

I actually was listening to an LCD Soundsystem song during this dance, but then I found this Datarock cd in a box of old things and I had to send this song to Megan. I remember seeing this Norwegian electro rock band play years ago, and it was such a fun show! Data Rock where are you now? Make a new record and come to the US of A on tour!

UPDDATE: Guess what I just Googled them and they had a new record come out in March. Very exciting! Or as my Norwegian friends would say, veldig spennende!


Standby: Wye Oak

standby :: wye oak from The Window Seat on Vimeo.

These guys have been around for awhile, and their 3rd album, CIVILIAN,  sees them reaching a new maturity in their sound and lyrics. Download the title track of the new record here.

I also am obsessed with this live performance they did on a rooftop in Amsterdam. Oh to be part of an impossibly cool indie folk rock duo like Wye Oak….and sigh.

PS: I do a killer Jenn Wasner impersonation…. well I think it’s killer…..Megan thinks it’s one of the top 10 worst sounds she’s ever heard.
