Charlatans UK - The Only One I Know - Some Velvet Blog
Bright Eyes/Spoon - Let The Distance Keep Us Together - Some Velvet Blog
Foxx on Fire - Politzia - Sandwich Club

The Sugarcubes - Delicious Demon - Broken Dial – (Maybe the only Sugarcubes song I like.) Found at a new friend (doesn’t know me, etc.), a fellow/sister Texan (Dallas) whose entire blog--Retro Music Snob--is devoted to tracking down songs from the past, apparently loosely defined as up to the preceding wisp of a second. Other notable posts link to songs by Holly and the Italians, Nick Lowe, Garbage, Jesus and Mary Chain (“Head On”!!), The Undertones (and further down, Feargal Sharkey), Stars (including the transcendent “Ageless Beauty”), The Judybats, Game Theory, and others too numerous to mention. I typed the word “Found” up there about thirty minutes ago. It took a long time just to hit the page down key over and over without stopping (but of course, I often stopped). Don't believe me? Go see for yourself. I discovered lots of excellent blogs I’m adding to my personal rota, too. This Dallasite is one busy beaver, with 26 posts just for Wednesday. I’m a piker, but at least I feel less guilty for pointing you toward stuff I like at other blogs. It’s weird pointing you toward a blog that points you toward other blogs. Pleasingly. Oh, and I think RMS wants you to bookmark the blog. Not sure, but that's the impression I get. Now to go wrestle with the dilemma of whether in future I should send you to RMS or the blog to which RMS sends you. Oh, happy, happy dilemma!

Thanks, Willard. That list got me pretty stirred up, too, as did The Monkees song.
