These posts are usually few and far between (mostly due to laziness rather than a lack of great posts) but I’ve come across several good links these last couple of days that are definitely worth sharing.

 Firstly, a non-music related link: A Collection A Day

And the rest:

Pop Tarts Suck Toasted: Top Ten Takeaway Shows A great selection

Motel de Moka: Top 200 Tracks of the 2000’s A worthy countdown featuring many songs and artists that I’ve never heard of

Music From A Green Window: Withered Hand – In Stores Now! Can’t believe there were only 10 people there. That’s criminal.

Quick Before It Melts: Myriad Harbour New Pornographers album info plus an Antlers remix

You Ain’t No Picasso: (Video) Decemberists Perform New Song ‘Springville’ I think Colin Meloy performed this at his recent solo show at The Toff in Melbourne

Thanks Captain Obvious: Yarn Owl Nice to see Yarn Owl picking up some more blog love

Lookshelves: A Music Bloggers Lookshelf  That’s my shelf!

I’ll leave you with two tracks by the wonderful Icelandic indie-folk outfit Seabear. ‘Lion Face Boy’ is the promo song I received in my inbox, and the gorgeous ‘Hospital Bed’ is just one of the many other tracks that are doing the rounds on the blogs at the moment. These guys are certainly picking up quite the following – and rightly so.

Lion Face Boy – Seabear

Hospital Bed – Seabear
