In the meantime, enjoy!
P.S. Im not shutting this blog down, Im too in love with Metaphor. We'll get through this. Haha.

Little Joy is Binki Shapiro, Rodrigo Amarante (Singer/Guitarist of Los Hermanos) and Fabrizio Moretti (drummer of The Strokes). While you're waiting for the The Strokes' new album, listen to this band. Take heed that Little Joy has stripped off affiliations from any band's style, their sound is original.

Its not enought to say that does
if nothing ventured, nothing learned
Its how it's always been
The Next Time Around
Brand New Start
Unattainable
How To Hang A Warhol
Dont Watch Me Dancing

Bon Iver is to release new EP this January, entitled "Blood Bank" and will consist of four songs, yes, only four songs. He had one of the most unforgettable albums this year so hopefully, "Blood Bank" is set to transfixed us yet again.
I tell my love to wreck it all
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
Blood Bank
Woods
Skinny Love
For Emma

What pushes these songs past mere worship involves cunning collisions of robust rhythm, caressing noise, and heavenly melody, with each element equally crucial. Psychedelic. Alpinism. Modern individualist. School of Seven Bells.
One day, suddenly, time
took a turn that once felt so brief
I blinked to see polite ghosts fading quickly
Half Asleep
Chain
Connjur
Face to Face on High Places
My Cabal

This was sent to me a couple of months ago but ignored it til now. You know how it is. Im not so much of a fan of "Fascination" but "Quicksand" is such a gem so maybe I should give her a chance. She is predicted by music critics to pave way into the scene for 2009 along with slightly resembling contender, Little Boots.
Oh I could let you stay
But I’m walking on broken ground again
Oh, oh when will I learn?
Quicksand
Fascination

Im guilty with this one. I only heard "Cross the Dancefloor" and it entirely blew my mind and left it soaking on the edge of sanity. You should check it out.
Let me see you move it shake it cross the dance floor
Hey boy watch me move it shake it cross the dance floor

Charlyn Marie Marshall or Chan is the name under Cat Power. She started performing way back on 1994. Chan disappeared from the musical scene after that, planning to permanently retire from music but during a sleepless night resulting from a nightmare, she started writing songs again. She just released "The Greatest", consisting of her versions of classic songs.
Do you remember
When we met
That's the day
I knew you were my pet
Sea of Love
After It All
Metal Heart
The Party
Still In Love
Wonderwall
Wonderwall (Elements of Noise Remix)
Dark End of the Street (James Carr, Aretha Franklin)
Hard Times In New York (Bob Dylan Cover)

This synth-pop trio has an intriguing name since they are a Brooklyn-base band. Blogs have been circulating remix tracks of Au Revoir Simone along with their love for the band. Powered by vintage keyboards, a lockstep beat box, and gorgeous, wide-eyed warbling, the Simones create make-out music for your inner android. What? I think, they mean these remixed tracks are lovely as hell.
Sometimes I want to be enough for you
Lark

The Way To There (Mark Anthony Tieku remix)
Paris (Aeroplane and Friendly Fires Cover)
Sad Song (Pacific! Remix)
Fallen Snow (Redux)
A Violent Yet Flammable World (Remix from Reverse Migration)

The Chunk of Change was originally put together as a Valentine’s Day present to Angelakos’ girlfriend. After being prompted to send it to others, the production of the brief, sporadic, and explosive recording of the EP followed. It worked towards the development of Angelakos’ signature euphoric and blissfully melancholic sound. Thus, Passion Pit was born.
And everything is going to the beat
And everything is going

Cuddle Fuddle
Better Things
Smile Upon Me

Crap! I thought I had (er... you had) found a new Treasure Fingers track - Delegate Your Turn. It turns out that the link is to Pacific!'s remix of Au Revoire Simone's Sad Song which is a good track (and Swedish as well) but it would be great if you could fix that link since I'm a big TF fan. Great post tho!
