One of my favorite new bands of 2009 are the Generationals. Hailing from one of the most magical cities, New Orleans this duo is a little bit of Simon and Garfunkel-talented-lyric-wise, a little bit of Dr. Dog-groove wise and a lot of youthful sunshine mixed all into one. You can stream half of their album, Con Law via their website. "The album was recorded and produced by Daniel Black at Bent Black in Washington, DC." I recommend watching the video detailing how the band met, how they met Chris from Park the Van and the fine dining of Red Lobster while on the road. Their album will see wide release in August.

*(Am fixing my music host-site so for now please visit websites and check out the videos! THANK YOU!)

This video is also very choice:

Nothing like a Llama and a little bit of fresh Vermont Air~*

To get you in the mood for some fourth of July happenings. So I am late to loving the Dirty Projectors but better late than never. These three lovely chanteuses are as talented as they are enchanting. This video is for their most recent hit single, "Stillness Is The Move" off of their record Bitte Orca and was directed by Matthew Lessner. Filmed on location on Mount Equinox in Vermont there is nothing better to brighten up your day than three hipster ladies in one-piece sky blue jumpsuits with coordinated dance moves and siberian huskies to put a smile on your face. Worked for me!
