Today's Better Breakfast Blend | Trost

From our special guest blogger Phil from Better Propaganda

She's gotten a bit more publicity, but I'm hooked on her voice - there's more than just a foreign singer banking on a sultry accent. She can really carry herself along those soft, rolling drum and piano lines.

Today's Brew | Bon Iver

I caught the Bon Iver show over at the Echo. Also caught Phosphorescent as I almost felt that the crowd seemed a bit more enthusiastic about them then Bon Iver. For some free songs, check out their performance at Daytrotter Session.

Justin Vernon (aka Bon Iver) shared moments later into his performance that he was gettin' over a cold- so hinting he wasn't at 100 percent, but even if he didn't mention that I couldn't tell. It only showed what a talented mo-fo he was, and when ended his set with "Skinny Love", wow.

From "For Emma, Forever Ago":
mp3: Bon Iver- "Skinny Love"

Today's Brew | Portishead

I AM FUEL, YOU ARE FRIENDS has a new track from the upcoming long awaited album by Portishead- simply titled "Third".
Its something that's been talked about the past few years- and finally its the real deal. And an album I've really been anxious to hear, to their follow up. Their last studio album, self-titled, was released a decade ago...and now they're finally back after a long hiatus.

Today's Better Breakfast Blend | Forest By Easy Opinion

We start off this week with our special guest blogger Phil from Better Propaganda. And he'll be contributing now and then to our blog to bring us some fresh music off the radar.

(text below from Phil)

A little bit like Sigur Ros but heavier on the distortion and the drums - messy postrock/shoegazer combo. This guy directed a music video for Hella and used to be in an old electronic outfit out of my hometown, Sacramento, which is how I picked him up on my radar.
