Song of the Day – Monday 8/23/2010 Sufjan Stevens August 23, 2010

Indie folk/pop’s Sufjan Stevens (pronounced ‘SOOF-yahn”) released an eight-song, 60-minute EP [yeah, that’s what I said: eight songs, sixty (six-zero) minutes!] for digital download. All Delighted People is available today on iTunes and Amazon, but you can grab it here for $5!

Sufjan’s website describes the EP as “built around two different versions of Sufjan’s long-form epic ballad “All Delighted People,” a dramatic homage to the Apocalypse, existential ennui, and Paul Simon’s “Sounds of Silence.” Sounds delightful, yes! The song was originally workshopped (oh we hate making workshop a verb, but time is money!) on Sufjan’s previous tour in the fall of 2009. Other songs on the EP include the 17-minute guitar jam-for-single-mothers “Djohariah,” and the gothic piano ballad “The Owl and the Tanager,” a live-show mainstay (and Debbie Downer if you ask us; what’s it doing on a “Delighted” EP?).”

Sufjan will perform at The Paramount Theatre in Oakland on 10/26/2010…

Song of the Day – Thursday 8/19/2010 Clinic

Liverpool’s Clinic, the surgically-masked mad scientists/post-punk revivalists are about to release their new album, Bubblegum on 10/4/2010.  Best known for their fast-paced, vintage sound, their new album (according to their website) does away with the old: “In place of churning riffs and wired vocals is a dream state of harpsichords, dulcimers and strings.  Melody and softness combine with the band’s unique internal logic to produce a record of pop beauty.”  Cool.

You can see Clinic operate when they hit the stage at The Independent in San Francisco on 11/19/2010…

Song of the Day – Wednesday 8/18/2010 Fortune

MizMuze knows that all the Francophile-Audiophiles out there are already down for Fortune—in fact, Thomas Mars (frontman for Phoenix) has been singing the praises of Fortune for quite some time, saying that they’re his favorite band and believes that «the way they arrange music is like a candy shop, everything is very sweet, the whole thing is very fresh.  It’s a mix between classical music and modern pop music.  Yeah, it’s a recent thing that people should know about for sure.» (<–guillemets added for effect)

Well, thanks for the suggestion Monsieur Mars…we’ll give Fortune a spin or two. 

Their debut album, Staring At the Ice Melt dropped on 3/23/2010…

Fortune – Gimme
