Potent Postables

Occasionally we have lots of great music to bring you without any specific format, and when that happens, it's time for Potent Postables!

Locals first - we've been enjoying a few samples from Devotion, the sophomore LP from Bmore mazz-folk masters Beach House that should be available sometime next month (pre-order here). They also kick off a support tour Feb. 28 at the G-Spot, check their MySpace for more dates.

Beach House - Gila


We first learned of DC residents Jukebox the Ghost from neighbors Instrumental Analysis last summer. Homeys have done well for themselves since with a fair amount of piano rock blog froth since; and word is their live shows bring more game than Scott Van Pelt, so. Additional tracks and balloon photos here.

Who could argue Ezra Furman doesn't remind you of Clap Your Hands' Alec Ounsworth or old school Violent Femmes with an extra shot of rail-hopping Americana? He's much better than the last Ezra at least.

Ezra Furman - I Wanna Be Ignored
Ezra Furman - How Long Diana
Violent Femmes - Add It Up
