Leonard Cohen – So Long, Marianne

“So Long, Marianne” was placed 190 on Pitchfork’s list of “The 200 Greatest Songs of the 1960s.” I really like the background vocals in the Chorus.

Indigo Girls – Least Complicated

@wtmd I never thought I would post an Indigo Girls song on Daily Song Fix, but I was listening to WTMD yesterday and “Least Complicated” came on. I really dig the harmonies and colors. I think you will too.

Andrew Bird – Satisfied

The first thing you have to say about Andrew Bird is that he’s pretty much good at everything.  If you have problems with your woman, he can fix them.  Need your taxes done? He’s a certified CPA.

He can also do his best Odetta impression and convince you it’s coming from a genuine place.  This is my favorite tune off of 2001’s The Swimming Hour.  You can’t learn soul.

"This is the soul tree. It gives me soul."

Mumford & Sons – The Cave

Mumford and Sons live performance image
Mumford & Sons are an English folk rock band from London. Their debut album, Sigh No More, was released on October 5th, 2009. In 2010 they released “The Cave” which hit 70 on the

UK singles charts and 33 on the Australian music sales charts.
The band has a really nice indie folk sound without disregard for pop elements. While I would consider their music chill and melodic, there are times when it sounds very full and powerful. Thanks to Emmanuel for the song recommendation. Enjoy!

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros – Home

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros is an ensemble band led by Alex Ebert, vocalist of the power pop group Ima Robot. After breaking up with his girlfriend, moving out of his house, and joining Alcoholics Anonymous, Ebert began work on a story about a messianic figure named Edward Sharpe. According to Ebert, Sharpe “was sent down to Earth to kinda heal and save mankind…but he kept getting distracted by girls and falling in love.”

The band’s first full-length recording, Up from Below, was released on July 7, 2009. “Home” was voted number 15 on the Australian Triple J Hottest 100, 2009 countdown, the largest music poll in the world. Shout out to my sister, Neekole, for recommending this song.
