Brandon’s TBE Digest 31 – [12.11.2011] New Jams, Remixes, & Covers!

Artwork by Jacob Youngblood Ziegler

Brandon’s TBE Digest is a place where I gather up all the recent jams that are worth a listen (or 10) but don’t necessarily need their own post. Here you will find new tracks by known bands, remixes, covers, and even mashups if they are interesting. My favorites of the lot are in bold.

This may be the last Digest I do like this. I’d really like to take the time to give the best of these tracks the solo post they deserve. If anyone feels strongly about this news leave it in the comments below. Otherwise rock on Wayne and rock on Garth.

For more jams by any of these artists use the ‘tags’ links at the bottom of the post!


♫ Saint Motel – At Least I Have Nothing / New Saint Motel jam. I like. Lets get a full album out, guys!

♫ Arrange – Sun Showers / New Arrange track is as blissfully beautiful as you would expect but I still prefer hearing this guy in full albums. Getting lost in it.

♫ Gotye – Showdown Below My Sombrero / This instrumental bonus Read more

[MP3] SAINT MOTEL doen’t need you to PUZZLE over their jam, the PIECES are already in the right places

i gotta say, honestly, when you look at me a gun goes off, deep inside of me

♫ Saint Motel – Puzzle Pieces

Now who doesn’t like a rollicking piano line!? Huh? Who!? Exactly. Saint Motel lay it down on “Puzzle Pieces” slapping some bouncy percussion and jangle guitars all over it. It’s unabashed, optimistic, and relentlessly upbeat. Precisely the kind of song that springtime is all about and no surprise that these guys are LA-based. Now if only they had more than one track up on their MySpace! Their Wikipedia does mention a notoriously epic live show, a handful of respectable touring partners, and airplay on both KCRW and KROQ so all sings point to good times.
