New (to me) Singles from Recent Paste Samplers

From Paste 37, I’m diggin’:

  • “The National Side” Romantica
  • “I Love You, You Imbecile” Pelle Carlberg
  • “Silver Dreams” Blackie & The Rodeo Kings
  • “Luscious Life” Patrick Watson
  • “Devil May Dance” A.J. Roach
  • “New York Skyline” Giant Bear

If you like Regina Spektor and/or Ingrid Michaelson, try “Unmistakably Love” Stephanie’s ID.
If you like The Fray, try “Swim” Jeremy Larson.
(Old Friends also recommended: “Take Me to the Riot” Stars; “Gone Gone Gone” Robert Plant & Alison Krauss [I can’t listen to their album in one go, but I like it in individual songs].)
From Paste 38, I’m diggin’:
  • “Foundations” Kate Nash
  • “I’ll Follow You Tonight” Anna Terheim
  • “Have to Have Everything” Milton & The Devils Party
  • “The Cornflakes Song” (feat. Glen Phillips) Dick Prall
  • “Days” She Is So Beautiful/She Is So Blonde
  • “Brand New Love” Serena Ryder (minus the Jesus references)

I guess this one must’ve come out before Christmas since it ends with three Holiday songs. Doh. (I like “It Really Is (A Wonderful Life)” Mindy Smith.)
If you like The Fray and/or Five for Fighting, try “Do I Wake or Sleep?” Homer Hiccolm & The Rocketboys and “Wedding Crows” The Josh Davis Band.
If you like the Go-Gos, try “I Call on You” The TrolleyVox
(Old Friends also recommended: “100 Days, 100 Nights” Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings; “The Opposite of Hallelujah” Jens Lekman; “Second Chance” Liam Finn .)
