New Look, Recommended New Tunes.

I'm in the midst of finals, so the most logical thing for me to do today was to waste all kinds of time changing the look here at Moroccan Role. I think it's a vast improvement...still, I'd appreciate any feedback anyone has. I know posting as been very spotty lately and unfortunately, it will probably continue to be the next two weeks.

BUT, here are a few things I've been listening to lately and enjoying.

Cold War Kids have been blowing up all over the blogs recently and here's your chance to download a couple of their tunes, including the great "Hospital Beds". It's one of my personal favs. at the moment. "Hospital Beds" appears on their 2006 EP Up in Rags and "Tell Me in the Morning" appears on their 2005 EP With Our Wallets Full.

You've probably read Pitchfork's review of Sunset Rubdown's most recent full-length Shut Up I'm Dreaming by now, so here's a chance to download the opening track from them album. I posted on these guys awhile back but it was nice to see Spencer Krug's troupe get some love from Pitchfork. You can purchase the album and the band's previous works here.

I know I'm playing catch-up by posting on Beirut, but here are the links to download two tracks from 19-year-old Albuquerque native Zach Condon's band. Everyone and their brother has posted on these guys...because they're good. Their music is difficult to accurately describe, but Amrit over Village Indian did the best job I've seen: "Their songs waltz, they lilt, they feature trumpets, accordions and gorgeously layered, elastic vocal harmonies." Pitchfork is even on the bandwagon-- they reviewed "Postcards From Italy" today. Go to elbo.ws to get plenty of more of their material.

That's it for now.
