Pop Or Not / Whyte Horses
Home On Native Land / The Hidden Cameras
Meet The Humans / Steve Mason
Clear Shot / TOY
Life Of Pause / Wild Nothing
Running Out Of Love / The Radio Dept.
Is The Are / DIIV

Songs

Snowfalls / Whyte Horses
Tougher Than a Soldier's Boots / Songs For Walter
Watching The Waiting / Wye Oak
Counting Stars / The Hidden Cameras
How / Daughter
Masterpiece / Big Thief
Wake Up To This / King Creosote
Berlin Got Blurry / Parquet Courts
Book It To Fresno / Brendan Canning

Fuck your tea room.

Your "Twenty Shitsteen" turn of phrase is brilliant Dan. And glad the Songs For Walter vibe is beginning to grow wings. Known Laurie for 6-7 years or longer and it's great he's starting to get noticed.

He did seem to be getting a bit of a buzz around the record when it was released, which was pleasing to see. Not nearly enough people saw him/them at Indietracks.

It was a Going Up The Country which introduced me to SfW, so I probably have you to partially thank!

"Corduroy" - Confetti
"Water Walks" - Palomica
"Sun Creatures" - Palms On Fire
"Only Two Can Play" - Real Numbers
"The Greatest Song Of All" - Robberie
"Marble Fountain" - Jessica & The Fletchers
"I Will Make You Mine" - Yea-Ming and The Rumours
"Happily Married (But Not To Each Other)" - The Soulboy Collective
"Deserted Coastal Town/Action & Memory/What Am I Supposed To Do?" - The Manhattan Love Suicides


I think these were the songs I liked most. I included "Corduroy" because I heard it for the first time last year.
