Catch up post: Headlights, Eels, Newislands

Taking a break from planning a showcase to tell you about….

The new Headlights song on RCRD LBL called Get Going. The song comes from Wildlife, the bands’ third album which was a difficult record to make according to the band. From troubles dealing with changing group dynamics, a lot of what was recorded was initially scrapped. But, now we’ve got a record and a tour. And a nice single to boot.

Eels were at Myspace Transmissions a little while ago. Head there to see a session recorded at the Village Recorder in LA (a classic studio used by Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd) of songs from the latest Eels offering Hombre Lobo and a Bob Dylan cover of ‘Girl From the North Country’. Check out the video for In My Dreams below.

And, the brand new band on my radar is Newislands. Don’t know a ton about this band from Northampton, UK but Dany blogged about them the other day and I was intrigued. Head to their myspace page and you’ll hear your new favorite song streaming. Its called Out Of Time.
