when i first heard Jenny Lewis’s plaintive voice on KCRW the other day i was confused – how did i not already have this song in my expansive collection of pre-“Under the Blacklight” Rilo Kiley songs?!

as it turns out, they are releasing a new album of b sides and rarities

…now if only they would get back together for real

other than listening to my she&him pandora music station i haven’t been nearly as active a music listener as i used to be.

there are, however, a few songs that i would love to own, but don’t seem to available for purchase as either an mp3 or CD.  if anyone out there has these songs, or knows where i can get them, please let me know!


arctic monkeys :: only you know
(apparently i love arctic monkeys covers of oldies)



teddy thompson :: take care of yourself
heard today on KCRW
