Friday Random Ten

Helium "Revolution of Hearts Parts 1 & 2" Magic City
Freedy Johnston "You Get Me Lost" Never Home
Vampire Weekend "M79" Vampire Weekend
Michel Camilo "From Within" Calle 54
Spoon "My Little Japanese Cigarette Case" Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga

A certain whiff of trendy from different eras resounds. But it kicks off with my favorite cut from 2008, has some hot Latin jazz and tango, odd Eno. It's ok.

I've done more than see that clip, I was at that show--they did the whole album (just like Petra's cd). Incredible.
