Great odd jazz-styled number soundtracking the end of tonight's episode of Fargo from eden ahbez a proto-hippy who lived under the Hollywood sign and wasn't fond of capital letters.
like the sleepy Beckalike groove on this - check their Bandcamp for more

heavy stuff from All The Saints
summer's (almost) here - what better time than to start another round of Song Of The Day with this track from Black Mountain offshoot Lightning Dust?
thanks to Dr Chimp for reminding us of the genius of Martha and Rufus's dad...
Meant to put this up after President Obama was beamed into the universe, but seeing as we've still got his four years to look forward to, there's still loads of time to enjoy TV On The Radio's Golden Age.
For some reason we forgot to put this "future classic" on the SOTDVV list - so here it is: Catfish Haven's Set In Stone. Lucky it's lasted this long and still sounds like a party you'd like to walk into... love the dudes dancing in time in the background of this shoddy phone footage.
I had been trying trying to keep the current Song of the Day playlist from getting too Canadian-heavy, but after this weeks live Dudes/Ladyhawk double bill that just wouldn't be representative. Both have been on constant rotation since the show, so I'm going to make this a special Song(s) of the Day double bill.
First up, The Dudes' track Do The Right Thing, from Brain, Heart Guitar. A straight-up broken-hearted love song. Listen to the track, and the whole album at Last FM - although watch the fact that they have the album listed under the wrong dudes.
Secondly, I've been waiting to squeeze Ladyhawk in since the album arrived in February, and Fear is one of the best (of many) tracks on the record. Perfect for a drunken rock-a-long. It's an awesome album, pick it up here.
P.S. It's not too late for some Dudes action - they're playing at the Windmill in Brixton tonight.
White Denim are well-overdue a place in our current playlist, staying on pretty solid rotation since we got wind of them. The soaring mini-extended jam of Heart From Us All makes the cut. Check it out on their Myspace, or Last FM.
