Spring Cleaning: Spiders, attorneys, missles, and snowglobes.

There's so much stored in my inbox right now, that it's a crime to keep it all to myself. This post is long, but full of good things.

Conner is a four-piece from Lawrence, Kansas that specializes in the sultry cockiness of the Brits and catchy melodies. Their sound is (unexpectedly) funky, and after three songs, I'm hooked and eager for more. Their new album Hello Graphic Missile is out on June 6th, but you can listen to the tracks below...

Conner: Silent Film Score
Conner: Cold Feelings
Conner: Up to You

Check out the band's myspace page for more information, songs, and to pre-order their album.

Spider is Jane Herships. This Brooklyn native has received the Yeti stamp of approval with her whispering vocals and delicate guitar playing. Her sound is reminiscent of Edith Frost, but with an even more hushed sweetness.

Spider: The Ballad of Clementine

Visit Spider's myspace page to stream more tracks and to order her album The Way to Bitter Lake.

I uploaded a few songs by The Attorneys to my iPod ages ago, and then completely forgot about them until last week. The songs have a punchiness that cannot be ignored, and they definitely woke me up during my 6:30 am train ride to work. This band plays straight up melodic, indie power pop. If you're in New York, you can catch these Brooklyn boys at their residency at Arlene's Grocery.

The Attorneys: Talk About It
The Attorneys: The Way I Want to Love

Snowglobe. What do say about this band from Memphis? Well... lack of time will keep me from saying everything that I should but: the harmonies are breathtaking, the lyrics simple and crisp, and instrumentation that is layered just right. Hands down, Snowglobe deserves a better post than this. After you listen to their songs, you will feel instantly happy. I promise. So, just listen to the songs.

Snowglobe: At Times a Nightmare (my favorite. just wait until the end of the track.)
Snowglobe: Rainbow
Snowglobe: Dry

Visit Snowglobe's myspace page to stream more songs, download another, and prepare yourself for the release of their album Oxytocin on July 18th.

Thanks for the Spider track (she's wonderful) and for introducing me to the other bands - you certainly covered a lot of ground in one post.

The links to the Connor tracks seem to be malfunctioning, though.

How to choose a suitable target in cable and the cabal online alz? You should compensate him by giving him some cabal alz, and then Pvp or PK. Normal monsters; you have to lure a handful of monsters with cabal gold so that switching between them can be easier. There are many benefits to guild in cabal money. When you buy cabal alz, it is not still deal high amounts of damage.
